Yr 3 Show
Four young footballers or 'scholars' came to Calmore this afternoon and ran a skills session with some of our keen footballers before answering questions about life as a young footballer at Saints. Despite the rain and wintery temperatures, the pupils enjoyed every minute and took full advantage of being coached by the hopeful stars of the future. It was an unforgettable experience and one that will be an inspiration to our young aspiring sports people. In a week where our theme has been 'Following our dreams' this was the perfect way to remind our pupils that the future is an exciting one if we choose to take advantage of the opportunities that come our way...
News from Murphy
Parents were invited in to share stories and hot chocolate with their children. It was lovely to see all the mums and dads enjoying books with their children. Let's keep reading, reading and more reading. A big thank you to School Library Service for talking to the parents about the importance of reading!
Reading with Murphy
Today was all grizzly drizzly, but I cheered up when I realised it was Thursday and we were going to school! I loved seeing all the beautiful poppies the children had made. I thought they were real!
I heard Year 6's stories about demon dentists, Percy Jackson, the Baudelaire children, plus lots of others, but what I enjoyed most was lying doggo by the reading chair, hearing about Iggy Wilder and Fred, his Grandpa’s lost collie. Fred’s a dog - just like me!
Can't wait for more stories next Thursday!
Lest we forget
If you have not yet seen the ceramic poppies that the children have made then do come and see them. They are so beautiful! Each child’s poppy stood with pride at the front of the school yesterday as the year 6 children led the school assembly in a thoughtful and poignant way. Thank you so much to the staff that made these poppies happen but in particular Mr Darch and our caretaker Mr Sindon. These will be on sale in a few weeks time with all the profits going to The British Legion.
Update from Murphy
I had a haircut this morning and I was a bit worried no-one would recognise me at school, but as we went in, one of the classes was just coming out onto the field and someone called out "Look! There's Murphy!" so I was very happy and waggy. Phew, that was a relief!
I was with Year 5 again, right by the library, so I could see all of the books. So many! Can't wait till the children read them all to me! I settled down to listen to stories about castles, Matilda and twins called Cheese and Tomato. Yummy names! Cheese is my favourite thing, so I listened hard. I love cheese.
All across the school today. pupils were busily painting their very own unique poppies ready for next Tuesday. Pupils in Year 4 and Year 6 have now transformed their clay flowers into vibrant works of art. And look at the concantration, pride and happiness
