Well done to Abby in Otters Class for having her riddle 'Be like me' published in the Young Writers Little Riddlers book.
All the children went out to the memorial for a Remembrance service on Friday 9th of November. It was a beautiful service led by James Macadam, with poems written and read by Kingfisher class and Rowan Tigg playing the trumpet. Rory and James, being the oldest and youngest in the school, placed the wreath down on behalf of all at Otterton School.
Well done to Tia Pring for having her poem that she entered into the Young Writers Poetry Competition, published in the Monster Poetry book.
On Thursday, Otterton’s Kingfishers Class led a special Act of Worship, in which, following the very successful SIAMS Inspection in June, our school was presented with an “Outstanding” certificate by Archdeacon Christopher.

Budleigh Salterton Carnival
Otterton school were awarded first place!
Well done to all those children and parents who took part in Otterton's Peter Rabbit Themed entry, it was a fantastic evening of dancing and laughing along the carnival route and we came first which was a brilliant result. Everyone gave it their all and danced the night away to songs from Peter Rabbit, including all the parents! The costumes were also fantastic so well done for all your efforts. It would not have happened however without Nikki organising it and all those that helped her from sorting music to dressing the vehicle. A great team effort so well done to all involved.
Rotary Gardening Competition 2018
We had some brilliant news this week, we entered the Sidmouth Rotary gardening competition this year and Otterton school won first prize!!! This is such an achievement, the judges came and saw Sophie's garden but also went to the allotment and saw how much hard work and effort had gone into it over the last year so they awarded us with a shield for Most Improved Garden 2018 and the winners cup for the Best Garden 2018. Well done to all the children in Class 1 and 2 who have been visiting the allotment once a week and helping to make it worthy of first place. Also a big thank you to all those parent helpers and volunteers who have helped a tremendous amount along the way. Tia and Theo from Class 2 went to the Victoria Hotel in Sidmouth on behalf of all the children to accept the awards. We have also entered the Exmouth Rotary gardening competition, which is being judged next week so watch this space!!
