It's Jamilia, Amelia and Melissa.
We had the most amazing day yesterday. we went coasteering. We thought it was challenging but at the same time it was really fun. I think most of us pushed ourselves to the limit and we were definitely determined to finish. We were also showed nurture because when people were slipping there was always someone to help them and we were showing enjoyment because we were always smiling and laughing. Some of us even took turns holding a jellyfish!
Darnell and Nadhiir were winners in a local poetry competition! Their winning poems are printed below - and will also be published in local magazine 'Up Our Street'. Both boys won i-pod shuffles, which were presented in assembly by Stacey Yelland from Easton and Lawrence Hill Neighbourhood Management. Nadhiir's mum accepted the prize on his behalf as he was out at swimming.
Each week this term we have focused on one of our school values and the children have carried out a challenge related to this. In week one, the Determination challenge was to create something to show what determination meant to them We had poems and videos and sculptures and art work! In week 2 the Openness challenge was for each class to introduce themselves to a mystery visitor and to learn by listening about that visitor. Governors, Business Partners and local community members visited the classes and were impressed with the chiildren's confidence and enthusisam. The third values challenge was about nurture and every child in the school has planted a sunflower seed. The challenge is to nurture that sunflower so it grows as tall as it can. We are looking forward to a fabulous crop of sunflowers on the school field in September.
All last week, the Year 6 children were busy completing their annual SATs tests. They did tests in Reading and Maths and this year the government have introduced a new Grammar test as well. All the children showed maturity and focus during the week and were rewarded at the end with a trip to Hollywood Bowl!
