On Thursday 2nd November, our Year 1 classes visited London Zoo as part of their

‘Paws, Claws and Whiskers’ project. They had a fabulous time and saw many

different animals. All of the staff who accompanied the trip commented on how

well the children behaved and how proud they were of them. Well done Year 1!

On Friday 3rd November, our classes in Key Stage 2 were very busy being scientific as we had a science morning. Each class had a practical science project that the children were involved in, posing their own questions and carrying out investigations in order to answer them. Year 6 extracted DNA from a strawberry, Year 5 made balloon rockets and spinners. Year 4 worked on paper aeroplanes and Year 3 worked on magnetic materials. There was a lovely buzz of excitement in and around the classrooms as the children made their own discoveries and through this developed their scientific knowledge and understanding.

Congratulations to 6 of our Year 6 children who have passed their bikeability course.  There are 3 more courses taking place so watch this space for details of more Year 6 having passed.

Thank you to everyone that came to our recent parents' afternoon and evening. This year, we organised it slightly differently. Parents still had the opportunity to look at their child's books and meet their child's class teacher but rather than this being in the classrooms it was in the school hall for Years 2 - 6 and in a junior classroom for Reception and Year 1. We were delighted with the positive feedback that we had from parents/carers about the new way of organising this event. There was a lovely positive atmosphere during both sessions and very proud parents looking at their children's work and hearing about how they had settled into their new classes.

Our school garden has had a makeover and looks very impressive.  There are 8 raised beds and each year group in the school is going to take charge of one, choose what to plant there and maintain the raised bed.  Their planting choices are going to be linked to their curriculum topics.  There is a strong focus on recycling as the garden now includes a compost bin with a clear front and a water butt.  The children will use both of these to help maintain their raised bed.

We are very much looking forward to the garden taking shape; look out for pictures of it on our Twitter feed.  Thank you to Mrs Love for co-ordinating this project.

On Friday 29th September we had a wonderful Harvest Festival. The front of the hall was lined with food that the children had brought in and children from Years 1 upwards performed to the school. We heard harvest songs, harvest facts and finished with a harvest rap. Thank you so much for your kind donations of food. These were delivered to the Sutton Foodbank by Mrs Scrivens, Mrs Love and some Year 6 children. Devonshire have made a real difference to the lives of many families in Sutton.

A BMX champion visited Devonshire in September to lead an assembly on the importance of having a strong mindset, being resilient and not giving up. It was extra special as he was an ex-pupil! The children thoroughly enjoyed the assembly, learning from what he said and watching his tricks and stunts – which included jumping over three members of staff lying on the floor! See article and photo published in the Sutton Guardian.

The assembly discussed the importance of having a healthy, balanced diet as well as exploring fun food facts together with demonstrations.

The two top classes for attendance from last half term, Birch and Eagles, participated in a cookery workshop to celebrate their achievement. Birch class made bread and Eagles class made fruit pizzas. Both classes had a fabulous time and took home the tasty treats that they had made.
