Our KS2 children enjoyed an assembly with a difference today when Jon King and Julio Arca came in to discuss holiday football camps which are run at Mortimer CA. They also mentioned their ‘Wizard Camp’ for football skills which runs on a Wednesday at Mortimer CA.
For more information please see leaflets which KS2 children will be bringing home. Holiday camps are suitable for children aged 4 to 14 and are for girls and boys.
Both our A and B Team football squad were in action last week. The A Team were particularly successful scoring victories over Ashley and Westoe Crown.
5PM concluded their recent fencing lessons with a very exciting competition. The children were divided into two teams: the Fierce Fighters versus the Fire Blasters. At the end, both teams were drawn. In a nail biting deciding bout, the Fire Blasters were victorious.
Congratulations to the new Fruit to Suit tuck shop staff who were appointed last week. They had a full afternoon of training on Friday and will be shadowing the current staff in their roles for the next two weeks.
Brian from the fire service gave year 5 a very useful presentation about the dangers of fire. The children listened attentively and asked sensible questions.
Lisa from Fruit to Suit came to introduce the Year 5 children to the roles involved in running the school’s tuck shop. The children now have the opportunity to apply for these jobs and Miss Anderson will be selecting her staff shortly.
Some of our Y5 children were able to experience a fencing lesson last week as part of taster to new sports in the curriculum. Our children took to it quickly, they listened attentively and applied the strong stance needed, the etiquette of the game and enjoyed learning some of the basic moves.
Great work Y5!
