Stay connected with a round-up of recent events and news from schools in the Connect family.

Cockington Primary School

The Reception classes were visited by Police Youth Engagement Officer, Dave Piper. He talked to the children about his role as a police officer and how he can help us.

Year 2 travelled on the steam train to Kingswear to explore the station and share their learning on engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel. The children then boarded the ferry over the river to Dartmouth, where they discussed how a bridge could be built to continue the Great Western Railway line.

Eggbuckland Vale Primary School

The Year 4 girls football team participated in a tournament hosted by the Argyle Community Trust, where they demonstrated amazing resilience, perseverance and teamwork.

To celebrate Month of the Military Child, all pupils were given the option to wear purple, camouflage or military clothing for the day. The colour purple combines the various colours associated with different branches of the military.

Leigham Primary School

A team of tag rugby players visited Tor Bridge High School to participate in the PSSP Tag Rugby Festival. Although many of the team hadn’t played a tag rugby match before, they quickly picked up the rules and tactics of the game. The staff were proud to see their skills develop as the games progressed.

The Nursery have been sowing seeds in their new allotment and constructing a bug hotel using an old dolls house. The children looked at the shapes and sizes of different seeds and are excited to see what the plants will look like. We look forward to sharing pictures of their produce!

Widey Court Primary School

The school have received a gardening package as a kind donation from Plymouth Garden Centre. The eco volunteers are now busy sowing and nurturing the plants.

A huge well done to pupils and staff from our Widey Court, Eggbuckland Vale, Leigham and Manadon Vale schools who participated in the Run Plymouth event. The children ran one mile per week in school, completing their final half marathon mile on Plymouth Hoe in front of their families and thousands of spectators.
