16/03/2019   Build a bridge - Science week 2019

As part of science week 2019, parents were invited to come along to help their children build a bridge. There were boxes of K-Nex, paper straws, and for the more adventurous engineers, sheets of A4 paper!

The afternoon was split into age ranges to allow access for all. The best part of the event was watching children create something, then modify it to make it better after testing. Rest assured, with this level of commitment and attention to detail, the future of British engineering is safe in their hands!

17/12/2018   Netball Bronze Medalists!

On the 14th November 2018,  our netballers took a trip to St. Georges academy to take part in the netball final. The tension was high and it took a while for the team to settle into the tournament. 

The first game, we were up against Billinghay Primary.  The first half was tense with no-one managing to score.  The second half, nerves had settled and we managed a 4-0 win.  Through to the next round.  Up against, Leasingham.  The crunch match. To decide who goes through to the final.  We were neck and neck at half time with a 1 all score.  Although we fought hard in the second half, Leasingham managed to pull away and the score ended at 3-1.  We didn't make it to the final but we could still manage a bronze medal.  

The final match saw us up against Martin Primary, the school we played at the qualifier at Barnes Wallis.  It was a tough match but we had the upper hand.  Our final score, 4-2.  BRONZE MEDAL!!!

 

A massive well done to all involved, you should be proud of your achievements today!!

16/10/2018   Football Tournament Oct 2018

Some year 5/6 pupils today travelled to Horncastle Town FC to take part in the annual competition run by JB sports. Four school took part in the tournament.

The morning consisted of round robin matches, with everyone playing each other twice. 

We had a fantastic time and everyone played exceptionally well.  The team drew four matches, lost 2 and we ended the tournament in 3rd position, having to play the only team to beat us and winning 1-0 in the play offs.  Our super scorer Zoe scoring the only goal.

Well done to all of those who took part, I would like to say a big thank you to Shaun for being our super goalie for the tournament.  He made some superb saves and played his socks off!!

13/10/2018   Year 5s on the road!

Bikeability

The year 5s took to the road in April as they were taught how to ride their bikes safely. Not only fun, the main focus of the instruction is to navigate the roads and become a considerate, and safe road user. Instructors put the children through their paces: teaching them how to handle their bikes on the playground before allowing them on the road. They then followed each other out and mastered signalling and manouvering around the village routes.
