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!
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.
