Sun is shining and we are having a well earned drink.
Our footballers were very excited as they arrived at Hillside this morning and couldn't wait to play. The A team started with a stunning match against Verwood First winning 11-6, great goals from Callum and Oliver helping us to victory. They followed this up with another win against Wimborne St Giles. Our last group match was a tougher game against a strong Hillside team and although we didn't manage to win everyone played extremely well. It was a close A team tournament with 3 out of the 4 teams all ending on 6 points, meaning the semi final places were decided on goal difference. We were narrowly edge out by Hillside and Wimborne St Giles, a great result though.
The B team started against Verwood First as well and it was a very even game with no one being able to score early on, Verwood were the eventual winners, but we put up a good fight. After a break we played Hillside in the final group game and despite some excellent defending from everyone we were unable to win.
I would like to congratulate all players on their attitude and commitment throughout the tournament. They were a credit to themselves and the school and should be very proud of all that they achieved. Thank you as well to all the parents who came out to support us and cheer on the children.
More pictures will follow soon.
Our shoeboxes are coming along nicely and it has been lovely to see all the different things that children have made and brought in from home. They are starting to look fantastic and I can't wait to see them all finished with the sand finally added for the sea bed.
Individual pictures will be up next week for you to see all the finished boxes.
In Owls this week we have been reading the story of Sleeping Beauty and writing our own Egyptian version. Now, we are taking this story and in groups creating play scripts, that we will eventually perform to the class. I am really looking forward to seeing all the performances. Pictures will follow.
In numeracy we have been exploring fractions. We have added and subtracted fractions with the same denominator, talked about what happens if our nominator is greater than the denominator and finally started exploring equivalent fractions using shapes.
FRIDAY 11th November
We will be walking to the Memorial for the Remembrance Day service tomorrow and I would be very grateful if a few parents would be able to join us in walking the children from Trinity to the Memorial and back. If you are able to help could you please email the office and let them know that you are able to help us. We ask that you arrive at school by 10:30am so that we have enough time for everyone to walk to the Memorial.
Many thanks in advance
Having not had Samba practice for 3 weeks we were all very excited for our lesson today. The children had remembered the phrases they had been taught before half term and were quickly able to play these as a class, creating a wonderful sound in Foxes. We were then set the challenge of adding parts to these basic phrases, this involved learning new hand signals and focusing carefully on what these hand signals were telling us to play. I was incredibly proud of all the children as they demonstrated a passion and enthusiasm for Samba that also impressed Mr Whitmarsh, our Samba guru.
In Literacy we are starting to look at newspaper articles and using the 5 w's - when, what, where, who and why - to help us find information quickly. Having read an article and found this information, we then wrote statements about the events that had happened from the point of view of the two main characters.
