Year 5 PSHE

This morning, as part of the PSHE curriculum on 'Keeping Safe,  5JF is receiving a three hour course on First Aid. Paul is teaching us how to respond in emergencies. As you can see from the photos, we have been working on putting people into the recovery position and running through a list of checks to keep the airway open. The other Year 5 classes will also take part in this training this week. We are looking forward to receiving our Mini Medic certificates at the end of the course.

Year 5 Writing Project

In Star of the Week assembly, we were joined by Tim and Craig from The Rotary Club.  They awarded three of our Year 5 pupils with a Waterstones book voucher to celebrate the fantastic descriptions they used when writing about their mythical Greek Beasts. 


Mrs Chalmers had also chosen three pupils who showed high levels of punctuation and fluency in their writing, bringing their creatures to life for the reader. They were awarded with a digital image of their beast. 


Our thanks go to Mrs Chalmers and The Rotary Club for being involved in our writing project. We have some truly budding authors.

Honeypot House Assembly

We were lucky enough to receive a visit from Honeypot House to explain how we were going to help them with raising money with our non-school uniform day on Friday 24th May which can still be paid for on Scopay. The pupils loved learning about who Honeypot House help and why it is so important.

Year 5 Osmington Bay

Final morning.....we are tired but we've achieved so much! Children have overcome fears and challenges and are rightly proud. We are also proud of our children and the way in which they have conducted themselves. Well done Year 5. 

See you later! Get your washing machines and showers ready! 

The children slept well and enjoyed an amazing cooked breakfast. The weather is dry and they're enjoying their morning activities. This afternoon they have two more activities followed by songs and games around the campfire this evening. 

Everyone is fit and well and leaders have already commented on the good behaviour of this group of pupils. We are also celebrating one of our pupil's 10th Birthday, so will be lighting the candles over lunch! 


Sports Update

On Wednesday evening, a selection of Year 4s attended an athletics meet put on by New Forest Athletics Club. We stayed until 7pm, running, jumping and throwing against other schools and members of the athletics club who were in Years 4 and 5. Despite being a year younger than many of the other athletes, our teams did incredibly. For many, this was a first experience at a running long jump into the sand pit which was tricky but lots of fun. Our Team 1 was awarded 3rd place in the presentation but the results have come through and we can now see that they actually came second! Very impressive especially considering they were all Year 4s against mostly Year 5s. Well done everyone!


PTFA Update

Thank you so much to the hard work fundraising by our PTFA, We have now taken delivery of our new minibus! Our first outing will be a cross country race next week.

Thanks again to the PTFA.
