September 2016 Newsletter

1st September 2016

Dear all,
I am writing to inform you of road works that are currently on Upper Bristol Road, just off junction with Milton Hill.  Work was scheduled to be completed within the school holidays but due to difficult ground conditions and utilities, this work will run into the new school term.  At present one lane is closed and temporary traffic lights are in place.  These lights will be manually controlled to mitigate traffic build up between 7:00am – 9:00am and 3:00pm – 6:00pm.  It is estimated that the works will be completed by 23rd September.  If you have any questions, please let me know.

It's nearly the end of September which can only mean one thing! On the 30th September, we are bringing together all Year 1-6 children from all five trust schools to celebrate collaboration and co-operative working at the famous Tropicana on Weston's seafront. See school letter for more info.

This is ambitious and very exciting! We can't wait to see all of the children come together to create an art project, build sand sculptures and take part in other activities. Thank you so much to everyone so far who has been instrumental in the organising of this event. 

Raising money for Farmlink 

On 21st October all five schools are taking part in a non-school uniform day to raise money for our partner Farmlink. 

Farmlink come into our schools to talk to children about healthier eating, the impact of consumer decisions on the environment and what lives in the British countryside. Children from our schools also visit working farms to see what farm life is really like and to bring the classroom lessons to life. See school letter for more info.

Festival of Sport - written by Thomas and Molly in Year 6
We attended the festival of sport at Hutton Moor where did some different sports.
We first did a skipping challenge where we had 2 minutes to do as many skips as we could, our rope counted the skips for us. We then did the challeneg again and tried to beat our score, which we all did!
Next we did Boccia and Kurling. The competetion was really good. Boccia was really hard because you had to sit down when throwing the balls. I really enjoyed knocking the other stones out of the way in Kurling.
Wheelchair basket ball was really good fun. I found it difficut to steer the chair and to move while carrying the ball.
We did a cup stacking challenge in teams of 4 against other teams to stack up the cups as quickly as we could. I really enjoyed moving all the cups!

"Kurling is good because anyone can play it"
