Many of the children attending Chudleigh Knighton C of E Primary School attend out of school activities and clubs. This page is dedicated to sharing their achievements with you. Well done to all of you who have danced, swam, drawn or played your way here.
Our Poem and Prayer box is for all our pupils to enjoy. They write poems or prayers at lunchtimes or at home and leave them in our special box, some children prefer to draw a picture to go with a poem that has already been written. The box is brought out each playtime and is located in our Quiet Area.
Our Ethos team then choose one prayer each week to include in our collective worship on a Thursday. The House Captains and Prefects vote on a poem, each week, which is read out in our Celebration Assembly. The poems and prayers are then published on the website.
Keira, Year 5, spoke about the Poem and Prayer box at a recent Play Leaders Conference that she attended.
'I'm really proud of our Poem and Prayer box, we bring it out at lunchtimes and it lets children have quiet time in the playground. We can sit and write new poems or read the ones in the box that are there already. It's a really positive thing that happens in our playtime.'
