Year 5 Walk Like An Egyptian
Yesterday saw the launch of the new year 5 topic which will investigate Ancient Civilisations including Ancient Egypt. All the children came dressed as Egyptians. Some of them looked so good that we barely recognised them. Well done year 5!
Year 3 Exit Tea Party
Year 3's design and technology topic this half term was to design and make a sandwich. At the end of the unit they invited a member of their family to taste their final product. They looked terribly tastly!
Rock Challenge Final 2015
This week we heard that Calmore Junior School is through to the Rock Challenge Final in June! We are absolutely delighted with this news as you can see in the photograph above. Go Calmore!
Maths Problem Solving Event
Last Friday local schools got together to solve tricky maths problems in teams. The morning event there were year 2 teams working hard to attack challenging problems and then in the afternoon the teams were from year 5. Well done to Calmore Infants and Calmore Juniors who both came third in the event. Here are some quotes from children regarding the day:
Netley Marsh: Some of it was really tricky but it was also fun
Eling: Fun working it out as a team
Calmore: We had to do lots of thinking
St Michaels: It was challenging
Copythorne: The equipment was helpful
Hazelwood: Hard but in a fun way
Abbotswood: Fun because we got to challenge our brains & We got to meet up with old friends from other schools
Bartley: Fun because we got to work as a team and cooperate & I enjoyed working with people I had not worked with before
Calmore: I like the competition side of it & Having fun doing maths

Year 4 today, and we started off with a book all about shops. If I ran a shop, I would sell biscuits and bones. Big crunchy ones.
Then I found out about two possibilities in When A Monster Is Born, then more fantasy creatures - gruesome goblins called Dribbledraws and Dampatch in a story called The Stone Goblins. They have disgusting table manners and eat toe jam!
I also heard about Carly in I Want A World Record. She really, really wants a detention and sets off the school fire alarm! I'd have to put my paws over my ears if that went off near me!

You'll never guess - I found out that I share a birthday with someone twice my age! I was 4 on Tuesday, and Mikael in Year 3 was 8! Wonder if he got a juicy bone too?
Today, I heard a squirmy story about Harry the Poisonous Centipede whose Mum said "Don't go up the up-pipe!" then I heard two versions of The Worst Witch where the children at school are given a broomstick with a cat on it and learn how to ride it. Wow! I'd like to do that! Imagine me with magic powers!
Then I heard How to Train Your Viking by Toothless the Dragon and Spy Dog where Lara, who used to be a secret agent, is in the final of Have You Got Talent, but she knows that the judge hates animals! Can't wait to hear what happens next!
Last of all, I heard a tale about a mermaid in love with a haddock. I've never met a mermaid, but maybe I will one day at Testwood Lakes where I go after school. You never know!
