Charlestown Church

Our Year 3 pupils walked down to Charlestown Church and while they were there sketched the outside of the building.

Take a look at this amazing sketch from Jasmine in 3JH.

She has worked really well to capture the 3D elements of the church and there is some fantastic detail in the picture.

Well done Jasmine!

Building Stonehenge

160426 Stonehenge - Reception

Well done to Jowan, Caiden and Tylor (from the Reception Class) who worked really well together and came up with the idea themselves to recreate Stonehenge.

We were very proud of this demonstration of team-work  – well done boys!

STOP PRESS

I had just uploaded this blog entry when Mrs Behennah came to tell me that the boys had carried on building and had also created the Rome Colosseum…

Space Seeds: An Update

160420 Space SeedsWe told you before Easter that we had been accepted on the space seed experiment.

This week the seeds arrived and will be planted by Year 2 pupils.  They got two packets of rocket seeds – one in a green pack and one in a red pack.  One of these packs has been up in space in the Internation Space Station with Tim Peake.

Our Year 2 children have to plant one seed in a specially labelled tray and then make careful measurements on how the seeds grow and send this information back to the ISS team.

We hope this will not be the only learning that is “out of this world” as we move into an excitingly busy summer term.  There are many trips, visits, camps and sleepovers already planned and more events being added into the calendar all the time.

What are you looking forward to this term – please leave a comment and let us know!

Football

St. Stephens – Home – B-Team

Injury hit meant a different line up for the B-team.  A very close match with Mount Charles taking an early lead only to concede not long after.  The match remained all square for most of the game. Mount Charles laid siege to the St. Stephen’s goal in the second half and Riley finally scored to give the team a great win.  Eldon, Ollie, Connor, Ben, Riley, Jez, Lewis T

 

A-Team – More injury issues meant a different side but one that performed well.  Kieran opened the scoring with a super shot early in the first half. Despite a fairly even game, St. Stephen’s managed to equalise and then go on to find another goal.  Mount Charles kept battling but were unable to find any more goals.  Harvey did well in goal in the absence of Isaac and even saved a penalty!

Harvey, Reuben, Ollie R, George, Kieran, Kieran, Rodrigo, Connor

 

Sandy Hill – Away – B-Team – A tough day at the office with another injury hit side.  A battling performance should have seen us score and get something out of the match.  Better luck and a bit quicker in front of goal may have brought about some goals.  It was not to be but the boys kept going until the final whistle.

Eldon, Connor, Jez, Harrison, Riley, Lewis, Ollie R

 

A-Team – The boys, again missed some players, came up against a decent Sandy team.  Harvey deputised well in goal again, producing some good saves.  Mount Charles, however, could not stop the flow of goals from a strong Sandy side.  The boys kept battling and deserved something from the match.

Harvery, Ollie, Ollie, George, Kieran, Kieran, Connor, Jez

 

St. Mewan – Home – B-Team

Another under strength team with a couple of absences, however the boys battled well and had some chances to score.  It was an end to end match and even though St. Mewan scored a couple of goals it could have gone either way.  Another good performance earning Jez player of the match.

Squad: – Eldon, Connor, Ben, Jez, Harrison, Jake, Kieran, Rodrigo

 

Year 4 played football against Carclaze at home in the final game of the season. It was a lovely evening and it was a fantastic match. Our team was mainly made up of year 3 players and were up against some bigger year 4 boys from Carclaze. It didn’t worry us and it was a very even first half. There weren’t many chances on goal, but Carclaze managed to score with their one chance. After that, Katie stuck to their striker like glue and he didn’t get another chance. Stan had a busy game in midfield, covering lots of ground and putting in some great tackles. Ethan ran well with the ball when he came on and Corey showed how much he is improving with some excellent tackling in defence. Jake and Tyler set up some good attacking moves and Bobby was always in the right place at the back to stop Carclaze. Treeve showed some great skills up front, but we just couldn’t get far enough up the pitch to set up scoring chances. Freddie again made important saves, but couldn’t keep Carclaze out for the whole of the half. The game finished 3-0 to Carclaze and our player of the match was Katie. Well done to all the players involved in the year 3&4 football team this year.  Team: Freddie, Katie, Bobby, Stan, Jake, Tyler, Treeve, Ethan, Corey.

Netball: Home v St Stephen

14th March

 

A team – Lilly, Harvey, George, Aimee, Lydia, Amelia (C) and Jodie.  The A team took an instant lead with four goals from George and Aimee. The A team were playing really well as a team and we started the second quarter with even more goals from Jodie and Harvey. In the third quarter, Lydia and Lilly were working extremely well together in the shooting third and managed to score five more goals. George and Amelia then scored a few more goals to secure our lead in the final quarter. The game ended as 23 – 0 to us. The whole team played really well and it was a great way to end the season, for all these reasons I could not choose a player of the match.

 

B team – Izzy, Hollie (C), Courtney, Jasmine, Jess, Kacey, Rivers and Charlie.  The B team played next, we got off to a good start with Jasmine scoring a goal. We had some great attempts from the Goal Shooters and Goal Attacks but unfortunately the second quarter remained goalless. In the third quarter, Holly and Courtney were working really well together in the shooting third and Courtney managed to score a goal. However, St. Stephen fought back and also scored a goal. In the final quarter, both teams were playing well. Fortunately, Jasmine managed to secure our lead by scoring two more goals. The score ended as 4 – 1 to us. This was a well deserved win for the B team who all played extremely well! Player of the match goes to Jasmine.
