Comic Relief Non Uniform Day
Second in Rock Challenge
Wow! Wow! Wow! Wow!
68 of our children spent the day at Southampton Guildhall on Saturday entering the Rock Challenge Dance competition. It was a long, hard day but, as usual, Calmore children’s behaviour was exemplary. Then, with only one rehearsal on the stage, our children performed at 7pm. Miss Ingram and I watched on with everything crossed but it was just sensational. The set was highly effective and the costumes were truly stunning. Our children performed with real professionalism telling the dramatic story of The Tsunami. They gave it everything they had and only just missed out to Halterworth who came first.
A parent from another school even emailed the following:
I felt I had to write to congratulate your children and the choreographers of the Tsunami performance at the Rock Challenge Saturday. I have to let you know it was my favourite! It was moving and beautifully portrayed.Well done
from Mrs Denise Deacon - a parent from another school
Calmore won awards for:
Well done to all the children that took part-we are really proud of you! Thank you to all the staff, parents & family of staff that helped with bag packing, set, costumes, and rehearsals. In particular we need to thank the very talented Miss Dunbar who came up with the idea and the vision for the dance.
It was a fantastic team effort and we keep our fingers crossed now that we make it through to the finals

British Legion Visit
The British Legion came in this week to accept a cheque for £364. This was raised selling the ceramic poppies that every child made. Thanks to everyone that bought a poppy and we hope that they are standing proud in your homes.
Murphy the Reading Dog's Blog 5 February
Some parents came in to read with their children today but not as we know it! They shared stories using our online book facility 'Bug Club!' Whilst I really love real books there are also some fantastic stories on Bug Club and it was fantastic to see these being shared with parents. Keep reading everyone!
Paired Reading with year 2 and 4
It was lovely to see the year 2 children reading with the year 4 children today. They shared books beautifully and enjoyed the opportunity of reading with younger children from our friends at Calmore Infants.
