OTTERY ST MARY SCHOOL SPORTS PARTNERSHIP
FAIR PLAY TROPHY RESULTS
YR 3/4 MULTI SKILLS FESTIVAL
AUTUMN TERM 2017
Points awarded according to Teamwork, Respect, Excellence, Determination, Courage and Equality
The event was held over 2 weeks to enable all schools to take part.
Children undertook a series of 6 multiskill stations where they had to use different skills and different activities based around football, basketball, hockey and tennis. There was lots of opportunities to practise throwing and catching along the way too. They had to work effectively as a team to get the highest points at their station, which involved being ready for their go at the right time and working quickly, but with accuracy. Points were awarded as above based upon the teams demonstrating the above values. that are prevalent in their schools and taken from Olympic and sporting values.
Each school split their classes to work as a team to represent their school for these Fairplay points. Each team would be on a different station and on that station were sometimes again divided again into smaller teams to give plenty of opportunity to demonstrate their skills and teamwork. Each schools team points were then calculated together and then divided according to the number of teams they had.
Results of the event are as follows:
1st place 194.3 pts Payhembury
2nd place 180 pts Feniton
3rd place 177.6 pts West Hill
4th place 165.5 pts Ottery St Mary
5th place 116* Tipton St John (however only 1 set of results were given in)

Well done West Hill School.
Hello and welcome to Ash Class!
We are a mixture of year two and three and our class teacher is Miss Stoneman. We are also very lucky to have Ms Foulds and Mrs Vincent helping us with our learning each week. We have a lot of fun in Ash Class; please keep checking our page to see new and exciting photos of our learning!
Weekly spellings and times table tests are given out on a Monday and tested on a Friday. Homework, usually math based, is given out on a Friday afternoon to be handed in the following Wednesday.PE is taught on a Tuesday morning with Mrs Matchett and again on a Thursday afternoon by Miss Stoneman so please remember to have PE kits in school. Children should have a pair of wellies in school for forest school learning in our Wild Area.
This term our topic is Eco-Warriors (Click here), inspired by our victory at our learning communities Eco-Champions competition when Ash Class took home the coveted Hedgehog Trophy! The challenge really inspired the children last year, some amazing learning took place and so we have based this short term around this year’s challenge which has a water theme. This topic will direct a lot of our geography and science learning, but it provides some lovely writing opportunities too. We have some special visitors coming in over the next term to support our learning and lots of hands on and sometimes wet activities to get stuck into! On this page you will find a topic map with an overview of all the curriculum areas and what will be covered.
This week, as part of their topic work, Ash Class have been creating their own news reports to inform the world about the problem with plastic pollution. First, the children worked collaboratively to research the issue on the internet, designed their own backdrops and then wrote their own scripts in the correct format. They had a lot of fun playing the parts of news anchors and I am really impressed with how hard they have worked to create some really informative and enjoyable pieces of drama. I hope you enjoy watching them as much as I did and learn something you didn’t know before! Enjoy!
