Seasonal hampers

The hampers made by the PTA this morning all look wonderful! Many thanks to all of our PTA members for their time and effort to create these prizes and also for their support at the discos yesterday, which continued to be well attended and enjoyed by all.

Tickets are still available for the hampers with the lucky winners being chosen at random on Monday in each class.

Dissection

Many thanks to Dr Gemmell who supported in Year 6 with their ‘Blood Heart’ topic this afternoon. The pupils were captivated at the live dissection of the heart and learned a huge amount about the role of this organ in the human body’s circulatory system.

Egyptians WOW day

Year 5 went back in time to Ancient Egypt yesterday. Adults and children immersed themselves in the past by dressing up and taking part in a wide variety of activities, including a performance from a visiting theatre company with an associated workshop and creating a sarcophagus.

Netball

Congratulations to our Year 6 netballers who yesterday achieved the feat of becoming the second best team in Bournemouth at the primary league finals.

Although losing to St. Walburga’s Primary in the final, our pupils won their semi-final match against St. James’ Academy and have made huge progress over the last year under the tutorage of Miss Tagg and Mrs Wallis. They showed true grit throughout the┬ácompetition and represented our school extremely well.
