Our Year 6 children visited Sturminster Newton High School for the open evening this week. The children took part in a maths challenge and these children succeeded in answering the mathematical sentence challenge successfully. Well done!
Meet our new Year 5 Change for Life ambassadors! They attended the training day this week at Shaftesbury and are now ready to lead a lunchtime club for the younger children in our school.
Our annual sports day was a huge success (and the sunshine even made an appearance!) The children worked together in teams, across a range of activities, to earn points with the winning team being the 'Glorious Gorrilas.' The Year 6 children did an amazing job of leading their teams and supporting the younger children. Well done to all the children involved and a big thank you to the PTA who provided refreshments.
Eight children took part in the recent aquathlon which was held at William Barnes Primary School. The children worked in teams of four to complete the event. They firstly had to swim eight lengths before putting on a t-shirt and trainers to then run around the recreation ground. It was lovely to see the children work together as a team and you can see from the photos below just how tired they were! Team 1 finished seventh and team 2 finished twelfth. Well done to all involved!
