Although our Sports Day this year is very different to what we had planned and hoped for, the children have thoroughly enjoyed competing in houses to earn house points and potentially the highly regarded House Cup.
A range of events were set up in the playground for the children to apply the different skills that they have learned throughout the year in P.E lessons.
All children participated showing respect and sportsmanship to one another. Well done to everyone for your enthusiasm and encouragement towards each other.
Keep an eye out on the blog as we will be posting all the results here.
Yesterday and today, Year 5 took part in their Wow day for the new topic: Awesome Egyptians. Children had the opportunity to watch the theatrical production of ‘The Curse of the Mummy’ and created 3D Egyptian artefacts.
All the children loved learning about the process of mummification and how gruesome the Egyptians were. They then had the opportunity to see the mummification process in real life and created their own mummified tomatoes. We will be observing what happens to the tomatoes next week.
Today the children have taken part in a range of sporting activities to raise money for Sports Relief 2020. The money will support people living incredibly tough lives in the UK and around the world. Year 6 Sports Ambassadors, Mrs Welch and Mr Stroud organised a carousel of sports activities ranging from the traditional egg and spoon race to hockey. The children thoroughly enjoyed there sessions and showed great sportsmanship.
Year 5 held their ‘WOW!’ day today. As well as creating some ‘Day of the Dead’ inspired artwork, the children sampled some food from a Mexican banquet and had a ‘Mathsico!’ interactive performance from a special visitor!
There is a meeting tonight led by representatives from Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole council about applying for secondary school places for our current Year 5 pupils. The meeting begins at 6 and all Year 5 parents are welcome, even if a slip has not been returned to the school.
Year 5 ventured to the Science Centre near Winchester yesterday. The visit reinforced learning from across the Science curriculum that the children have covered this year: materials, space, forces and magnets.
