Fantastic Footballers!

Our Y5/6s entered the Louth School Games Football Tournament at a wet Cordeaux and were delighted to emerge victorious. The A Team proceeded to dominate their group winning all their matches. Their final match was against close rivals Lacey Gardens who, up until that point, were also unbeaten. However, our boys soon took the upper hand and ran out 4-1 winners finishing with a total of 28 goals scored and conceding just the 1! The B Team also had a successful tournament winning three of their five matches to finish third in their group. Well done to everyone for coping

Phoenician Phonics?

    As part of their Ancient Civilisation topic, Year 3 & Year 4 have been learning about the Phoenicians (who lived around the coast of the Mediterranean 3200BC to 300BC ) and how they used to trade and create a written record of their transactions. The children have also learnt how to ‘barter’ for goods without money like exchanging animal skins for a sack of corn! As a run-up to harvest, the children have also been writing the names of fruit and vegetables in the Phoenician alphabet – but they discovered the Phoenicians didn’t use vowels! Can you crack the Phoenician Code?

Battle of Britain Remembered

Year 5 and Year 6 had a brilliant day visiting the BBMF at RAF Coningsby as part of their WW2 topic. The children got to see the famous Spitfires, Hurricane and Lancaster bomber and even had the opportunity to board a Dakota transport like a paratrooper! The visit coincided with the recent commemorations of the Battle of Britain which took place in the skies above Kent and the South East of England 75 years ago. What an experience!

We are Gold!

We are Gold! For the second year running we have achieved the School Games Gold Award for Primary Schools! Our trophy cabinets show we are successful in a range of sports which our junior age children can take part in: Swimming, Hockey, Cricket, Cross-Country, Football, Tag Rugby, High 5 Netball, Indoor Athletics, Scatterball, Rounders and even Tri-Golf! This award, however, is more a recognition for participation in these events and the number of children involved. Alongside our usual competitions, last year we took part in two new ‘paralympic style’ events of Goalball and New Age Curling and the Change4Life after-school

Bikeability

Year 5 have been learning how to ride safely in all conditions – chiefly the wet! If the children pass Day 1 on the playground they will move onto the road for Day 2. Left foot on the ground, right foot in starting position on the pedal, look behind over your right shoulder (is it safe?), off you go!

Pirate Day

Ahoy me hearties! Shiver me timbers! Year 1 & Year 2 had a fantastic Pirate Day to launch their autumn topic. The children baked ship’s biscuit ”Pieces of 8 doubloons’, made treasure maps, pirate hats, hand-print parrots and shouted “A-haaa!” frequently! The children looked great and the staff got into the spirit of the day too!
