Maths Problem Solving Event
Last Friday local schools got together to solve tricky maths problems in teams. The morning event there were year 2 teams working hard to attack challenging problems and then in the afternoon the teams were from year 5. Well done to Calmore Infants and Calmore Juniors who both came third in the event. Here are some quotes from children regarding the day:
Netley Marsh: Some of it was really tricky but it was also fun
Eling: Fun working it out as a team
Calmore: We had to do lots of thinking
St Michaels: It was challenging
Copythorne: The equipment was helpful
Hazelwood: Hard but in a fun way
Abbotswood: Fun because we got to challenge our brains & We got to meet up with old friends from other schools
Bartley: Fun because we got to work as a team and cooperate & I enjoyed working with people I had not worked with before
Calmore: I like the competition side of it & Having fun doing maths

Year 4 today, and we started off with a book all about shops. If I ran a shop, I would sell biscuits and bones. Big crunchy ones.
Then I found out about two possibilities in When A Monster Is Born, then more fantasy creatures - gruesome goblins called Dribbledraws and Dampatch in a story called The Stone Goblins. They have disgusting table manners and eat toe jam!
I also heard about Carly in I Want A World Record. She really, really wants a detention and sets off the school fire alarm! I'd have to put my paws over my ears if that went off near me!

You'll never guess - I found out that I share a birthday with someone twice my age! I was 4 on Tuesday, and Mikael in Year 3 was 8! Wonder if he got a juicy bone too?
Today, I heard a squirmy story about Harry the Poisonous Centipede whose Mum said "Don't go up the up-pipe!" then I heard two versions of The Worst Witch where the children at school are given a broomstick with a cat on it and learn how to ride it. Wow! I'd like to do that! Imagine me with magic powers!
Then I heard How to Train Your Viking by Toothless the Dragon and Spy Dog where Lara, who used to be a secret agent, is in the final of Have You Got Talent, but she knows that the judge hates animals! Can't wait to hear what happens next!
Last of all, I heard a tale about a mermaid in love with a haddock. I've never met a mermaid, but maybe I will one day at Testwood Lakes where I go after school. You never know!

School Council Assembly on Friendship
Last week our School Council delivered an assembly on Friendship to the infants. They talked about the qualities needed to be a good friend and read a poem about a box of crayons that did not get on-but did not know why! Our infant children listened beautifully.
Red Nose Day 2015
Lots of FUN was had to day at Calmore Junior School. We made our faces funny for money! Before handing over the coins we carried out lots of FUN maths activities with them. We estimated, measured our faces in coins and lined the whole school with the coins - the line went on and on! Well done to everyone that made their face funny and brought in a donation for Comic Relief.
Parents Writing Fun
Yesterday lots of parents and carers came in to have fun writing with their children. They wrote poems, crazy alphabets, silly sentences and generally enjoyed writing.
