Redland competed in the tag rugby County Finals on 10th June. The team played splendidly, only losing one of their four pool games finishing second in their group! They went into the pool for teams in second place and finished the competition in a credible 7th place out of 23 teams. Well done team! There is a photo of the team in the Gallery.
Salt and Pepper had their first holiday with one of the school’s families during the half term break. Thank you to the Dowds who have produced a lovely collage of their time with the rabbits.
Salt and Pepper, our lovely rabbits, have now moved out to their hutch and are loving being outside in the fresh air. They are proving very popular with the children who are eager to help with looking after them each day. A couple of photos have been added to our Photo Gallery – take a look!
Well done to our two tag rugby teams who took part in the annual Chippenham rugby festival. The popular event saw 19 teams compete against one another. Both teams played brilliantly, but one team won their pool going into the final winner’s pool. The final pool was fiercely contested but by winning five games and drawing one, Redland were clear winners. They will go through to the County finals on 10th May! Well done to all children who played!
Huge congratulations to the Redland netball team who have qualified for the County finals for the first time. Following on from their recent level 2 win, the team played tremendously well to win the Mid-Wilts final on Friday 29th March. We are so proud of you all!
The children enjoyed a variety of activities yesterday, including Quad Biking! The evening meal was a delicious lasagne with a range of sides, and everyone ate well. In the evening, there was a 2 hour games session in the hall. Everyone slept well after that, especially the staff! This morning’s breakfast was a Full English and cereal and toast. The carousel of activities for today include abseiling, buggy building and Jacob’s ladder. The children will have lunch at around 1pm followed by games until the coach arrives at 2.30pm. The coach is due back at school at around 4.30pm. We will keep you updated!
After the first activities yesterday, the children were treated to a lovely meal which was a choice of sausages or beef pie with mash, or vegetable curry with rice. In the evening, everyone enjoyed a camp fire with a sing-a-long, overlooking beautiful Weymouth harbour. After a good night’s sleep, everyone was ready for breakfast and the first activity of the day – quad biking!
Everyone has arrived safe and well. The children had some time to settle into their rooms, before starting their first group activity which was abseiling, giant swing or air ball. There was a little rain, but this soon disappeared and it is now fine and dry.
We are looking forward to celebrating World Book Day on Thursday 7th March with our Book in a Jar competition! Parents and carers are welcome to view these in the hall at 2.45pm.
Here we are back for Term 4 and some lovely sunny weather to welcome us back to school. As always we have lots planned for this term to ensure the lovely learning continues!
