A team of children from Year 5 recently represented the school at the PSSP Level 2 Orienteering Competition. It was the first time we have entered this competition and all of the team thoroughly enjoyed it and added to their orienteering skills. Very excitingly we took away 1st, 2nd and 3rd place in the white course, and 1st and 2nd place in the yellow course. FANTASTIC! Well done to all of the children.

 

Year 3 & 4 Dance & Drama club finished this week with a fantastic performance of Alice in Wonderland to their families. Their singing, dancing and acting was absolutely brilliant and they should all be really proud of themselves. Well done! We look forward to working with Laura Shepherd from LS Drama Workshops again next academic year.

 

The Year 5 Dance Team enjoyed a wonderful morning at the inaugural PSSP Dance Festival on Wednesday this week. They performed their 3 dances with confidence and flair and really appreciated watching the performances of all the other primary school groups too.

Half Marathon Club is now in full swing with all of the children running amazing distances each week. We have our largest ever number of children, with 87 looking forward to the challenge on the Hoe in May. Thank you to all our regular helpers who are instrumental in ensuring the club is running so smoothly each week.

A group of 16 Year 6 children represented EVPS at this years Citywide Indoor Rowing Competition. They all participated in an individual 2 minute race and also a team 800m race. All of the children were fantastic and improved the distances they had rowed in school a few weeks ago. Excitingly, Nathan gained 2nd place overall in the individual event, rowing 468m in 2 minutes. He was up against 47 other children! Many congratulations to all of the children, they did themselves and the school very proud.

 

These year 3 & 4 children are really enjoying the After School Dance & Drama Club and are already hard at working practising for an Alice in Wonderland mini production just before Easter. How exciting!

Just before Christmas a team of children attended a football tournament at Goals, Plymouth. They played incredibly well and ended up coming 2nd overall. Really well done boys!

 

A team of 6 Year Five & Six boys recently went to an Inclusion Rowing event at Torbridge Primary School. All of the team had a fantastic time and really improved their rowing skills. They were really excited to see how quickly they could row 200m by the end of the event. Competition was fierce between them! Who knew you could play a fish game on an indoor rowing machine?! Well done to all of the boys, who were really great representatives of our school.

 

Four children from Year 6 recently represented the school at the annual Bronze Ambassador Conference at the Life Centre. These children have been selected to be the Bronze Ambassadors leaders for the school this year and will be a key part of the sports leadership group. 
All of the children had a brilliant time and learnt lots about how to be fantastic leaders. They are looking forward to putting these skills into action soon by planning and delivering a Change for Life club for younger children in the school.
Well done all of you.

 

After the warm-up event earlier in October our cross country team competed at the city-wide Level 2 School Games Cross country event on Thursday 18th October. The 'going' was soft after a week of wet and stormy weather but the afternoon arrived with just a breeze and blue skies! All our pupils ran their hearts out (almost literally) and enjoyed the event enormously. One of our pupils achieved first place in the Year 3&4 girls' major schools race. Congratulations to all our team!

 

On Wednesday 3rd October our Year 4, 5 and 6 cross country team participated in the Eggbuckland family warm-up event at the community college. The weather was kind to us and our 21 runners were eager to perform well on the hilly course. Everyone ran to the best of their ability and we ended up with some very good individual results.
