Zany Zebra Design Winner
Today we announced our Zany Zebra design winner. The winning girl in year 3 designed her zebra with a series of patchwork squares. This appealed to us as we can have lots of unique and imaginative different aspects to our zebra that have been inspired by Jamie's design. This of course will then form part of the Southampton zebra trail in 2016. How exciting!
Well done not only to our winner but to all the children that took part in the competition.
Puppet Club Assembly
Today our Puppet Club children performed to the whole school with the help and support of Rosemary Lethbridge, one of our school governors. The theme of the assembly was about respect and tolerance for the ideas and beliefs of others. This is very important to our school ethos and forms part of everyday life at Calmore Junior School.

Murphy the Reading Dog's Blog 11 June
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.
