World Book Day 2019
All the children had a fantastic World Book Day on Thursday 7th March 2019. We had a storyteller into school who told a fantastic story about a Fire Dragon and Ice Dragon. The story was really imaginative and all the children thoroughly enjoyed listening! Ocean Class and Desert Class went on to complete a drama workshop and found out how a storyteller is able to bring a story alive to the listener.
We also had some fantastic World Book Day characters in school. Children dressed up in a wide-variety of costumes and they all looked fantastic! Thank you to all the children for taking part.
Thank you to everyone who made a dragon egg at home - they are all displayed in the school atrium with our home-made fire dragon. Come into school and have a look at all the eggs as well as the dragon which was made by all the children during the day.
Well done to our Year 5 and 6 footballers who recently took part in a tournament at Child Okeford. They played fantastically well as a team and even got a mention for demonstrating 'fair play' in their games. Well done!
A huge well done to our Year 5 and 6 netball team who took part in a recent tournament at Child Okeford. They did a fantastic job of working together as a team and really did try their hardest. They even got mentioned as being the most improved team!
Four children from Year 4 and four from Year 6 participated in the Bryanston Maths Challenge. They took part in several activities during the afternoon, testing their mental maths as well as problem solving skills. You all worked really hard and should be proud of your fantastic scores! Well done to you.
