It is with great sadness that I have to inform you that Mrs Rietzler, our very dear friend, colleague and dedicated Year 6 teaching assistant passed away on Monday 8th June. She had been unwell for some time now and despite her determination to return to work and most recently see everyone at Tile Barn, she has not been able to. Our thoughts are with her family and in particular her daughters Hannah and Jenny at this time.
Throughout her six years with us, she has lived and breathed Calmore. At the heart of everything she did were the children and she loved working alongside each and every pupil. No job was too big or too small – ask her a spelling or had a question related to grammar and she was on it like a shot (although she often drew a line at putting up displays, “I know my limits!” she would remind us!)
Since being unable to work, she has forever been in touch with staff, asking after the children and posting messages on the school blog wishing them luck for SATs:
‘Well done on finishing those pesky SATs, I hear you have been making all your teachers proud and making Miss Ingram cry! I miss you all so much and I really wish I could have been there with you but I know you will have been amazing without any extra help. Have lots of fun now, roll on year 6 production!!
Mrs R x’
Every member of staff and pupils who were fortunate enough to have worked with Mrs Rietzler will miss her very much but will forever be grateful for having spent time with such a positive and inspirational lady. We really will miss her.

Today all the children came in non uniform to raise money for our Zany Zebra. They dressed in either stripes or black and white and brought in donations towards the cost of the zebra. Later this term, there will be a competition to design Calmore Junior School's zebra. Eventually, this zebra will be part of the Southampton's Zany Zebra Trail in 2016.
Year 3 in Rockbourne Roman Villa in Fordingbridge
Here we are at Rockbourne Roman villa where we discovered what life was like in a Roman villa. There were some fascinating facts: the Romans brought under floor heating to Britain (called a hypocaust); they used oil and garlic to disguise the smell of their sweaty feet; they didn't use soap but they liked to keep clean by covering themselves with oil and then scraping the dirt off (or at least have their slaves scrape the dirt off!). Worst still, they re-used their oily sweat!
