Year 3 visited Eothen Residential Care Home, where they told the residents about the Predators project they had been working on in the summer term. The residents were very appreciative and the children enjoyed talking to the residents afterwards.

Devonshire Primary School is proud to have taken part once again in the Sutton Music Festival at Fairfield Halls in March 2015. As part of the concert, the children were learning to sing songs around themes. One of the themes for this year was songs of peace, as part of the commemoration of the World Wars. Here is an example of our wonderful choir singing one of those songs.

‘Heal the World’ – Michael Jackson.

On 11 February 2015 our Top of the Form team played the next round of the tournament against Barrow Hedges.  After a very exciting and 'nail-biting' ten rounds of questions the team narrowly beat Barrow Hedges by 1 point! 

Well done to David, William, Gabriella and Gautham - next stop the quarter finals!

Devonshire - Offical Opening, the tape is cutWe were lucky enough to welcome Harry Aikines-Aryeetey, an international athlete, to Devonshire on Friday 23 January 2015. 

In July 2014 the builders hung up their tools, hard hats and boots and gave us a wonderful new building that they had been working hard to build.

We now have an amazing school building for the children to learn in.  The most recent building project has given the nursery a revamped outdoor area and the Reception year group 3 brand new classrooms together with a large indoor and outdoor play area to complement the learning that they are doing in the classroom.  The infants now have a brand new hall, Year 1 a new classroom and there is a new ICT suite for all of the children to use.  The whole school has an enlarged playground which is used not only at playtime and lunchtime but also gives the children more space for their PE lessons.  The whole school is now housed in one building that has a long corridor leading from one end to the other.  As part of the building project, Devonshire's front entrance has completely changed and is now far more spacious, fit for purpose and most importantly, welcoming.

To celebrate our new school building we invited Harry to officially open it.  He joined us at a special assembly where he told us all about his career and what has helped him become a successful athlete.  At the end of the assembly he kindly gave us a signed pair of his running spikes.

Harry met the children, staff, governors and special guests in assembly and answered the children's questions.  He was then shown around the new building but made time to pop in to the playground to see the children at lunchtime - even taking time to race some of them!  His final job of the morning was to cut the ribbon to mark the official opening of the new building.

He is a fantastic role model for the children, we all thoroughly enjoyed our visit from Harry and we hope that he did too.  It was an assembly that we will remember for a long time!

David, Gabriella, Gautham and William from Year 6 represented Devonshire in the first round of the Borough's Top of the Form competition in January 2015. This is an annual general knowledge competition organised by the Rotary Club of Carshalton Beeches for Primary Schools in Sutton; it takes the form of a popular quiz show from the 1960s. The team correctly answered lots of very tricky general knowledge questions and won their first round match against Seaton House. Not only did the team emonstrate a tremendous general knowledge but they also worked very well together as a team.

Well done David, Gabriella, Gautham and William and good luck in the next round!

Devonshire welcomed the Mayor, Councillor Arthur Hookway, and his mace bearer, Mr Nick Prior, to  our first whole school assembly of 2015. The Mayor answered questions that helped us to understand what the Mayor does, what it is like to be the Mayor and what he likes best about being the Mayor.

Nick Prior told us all about his role as the mace bearer and what the mace was. He brought the Deputy Mayor's robes for children to try on which was great fun. 

At the end of the assembly the Mayor said that he would be more than happy to welcome the School Council to the Mayor's Parlour.

We all thoroughly enjoyed his visit.

This term we have been busy raising money for charities.

We have raised:-

£120 for The Royal British Legion by selling poppies.

£530 for Children in Need by holding a spotty themed own clothes day and a cake sale.

£445 for Save the Children by wearing Christmas jumpers to school for the day and from our Christmas collections.

£203 for Harvey Watson, a local boy who we are helping to raise money for so that he can be sent to America for life changing treatment.

Our choir and Year 6 classes have visited local residential care homes singing war time songs with the residents and carols to them at Christmas.

Devonshire got fully into the Christmas spirit! Everyone wore Christmas jumpers for a day to raise money for Save the Children, 485 Christmas dinners were enjoyed by children and staff on our annual Christmas dinner day and children enjoyed a Christmas party with their class in the last week of term. Parents, carers and friends enjoyed one of our 7 Christmas productions and this was all in addition to a Devonshire first - a Christmas pantomime, Cinderella. Our choir visited two local residential care homes and spread some festive cheer by singing carols to their residents. Our PSA organised a very successful Christmas Fayre which raised £2500.

Happy Christmas from everyone at Devonshire!
