Years 1 & 2 Sponsored Walk

Year 1 & 2 chose to support the charity School in a Bag for their social action project. We had just begun work on this when the first lockdown started, but we have now completed a sale of pencil pots and a 3-mile sponsored walk.

Thank you to the amazing children of years 1 & 2 who walked up and down on stony tracks and overgrown paths with wonderful spirit and humour and have raised, together with the sale from last year, over £1300, a wonderful achievement!

Thank you to parents and carers for your support and for helping to get the message out, and to all who sponsored us.

We hope to hold a special assembly (probably next term) with representatives of School in a Bag.

The Endangered Seahorses of Studland Bay

For their Laudato Si project this term, year 3 wrote non-chronological reports after learning all about the seahorses from Julia at The National Trust. We learnt about their habitat, diet, features and why they are an endangered species. Julia also informed us how The National Trust are aiming to protect and support these seahorses by planting more seagrass at low tide to sustain their habitat.

Euros Competition Draw

We held an outdoor whole-school assembly to choose groups and teams for the inter-house football competition that will run alongside the other football competition taking place now… details of results will follow.

Years 5 & 6 Go Sailing

Year 5 & 6 spent the day at Weymouth sailing centre. Activities included sailing, indoor wall climbing, outdoor climbing, escape rooms and tunnelling. Lots of team work, trying new things and overcoming nerves!
