New playground markings

Yesterday, a company came to put new markings on the playground. The children were extremely excited as they watched while the markings were being put on the playground. These new markings were funded by non-uniform days and sponsored events. Thank you to all children and parents who have contributed to this. I am sure that the children will enjoy using them for many years to come.

Murphy our Reading Dog's Blog Thursday 26 April 2018

Hi there
Today -oh joy! - I was next to Year 4's lunchboxes!  Haha!
 
Anyway, first up was Mary Poppins, where Andrew the dog got lost.  I got lost once, and the dog warden had to call Mum to come and get me.  No fun!
 
Next was The 52-Storey Treehouse and Andy and Terry described all the great stuff in their treehouse, like the pizza parlour, the rocking horse racetrack, the wave machine, the haunted house, the hot donut vending machine - amongst other things!
 
Then I heard The Twits, where Mrs Twit had to keep her feet on the ground and hold on tight to all the balloons - and Mr Twit cut the strings!
 
After that, I learned all sorts of football tips from Football Spy, and then another Roald Dahl story.  This time I listened to Matilda, and she'd just met a new friend called Lavender.
 
Last today was The End of Time where I learned all about superpowers like flight, invisibility and laser hands.  I'd choose invisibility, then I could snaffle some dog biscuits while Mum wasn't looking!  What superpower would you choose?

Licky lick

Rock Challenge 2018 Final

Eighty of our children performed their hearts out on the Portsmouth Guildhall stage on Wednesday. The performance was entitled 'Quest for Honour' and it told the story of Jason and the Argonauts. The children were professional, slick and dynamic.

On the night, the competition was fierce and some of the performances were like mini West End shows. Calmore just missed out on first place which is a tremendous achievement.

Well done to all the children and staff for a stunning performance.

Hi there
 
Boy oh boy!  Was I a hot dog today!  Luckily I had a lovely cold drink of water on my way into school today - mmmmmm!  Delicious and cool!  Lap, lap!
 
Plus, plus, I was with Year 5, who I haven't seen for - like - ever!  
 
First up was Jan and the Chocolate, where Jan got her finger stuck in a chocolate machine!  Oops!  I wonder how she got it out?
 
Then it was The Secret Garden, and Mary Lennox was sent to live with her uncle at Misselthwaite Manor.  All set for something mysterious and magical to materialise. Funny - that's all mmmmmmmms too!
 
Next was The BFG, where someone's h-u-g-e hand clamped over Sophie and her blanket while she was in bed, and pulled her out through the window!  Was she dreaming, or was it for real?
 
Charlie and the Great Glass Elevator was next, and Charlie and his family were on their way to live in the chocolate factory.  I'd like to live there too - eating doggie choc drops of course!
 
Then it was Wimpy KId, The Getaway, where there was a spider in the bathroom.  Oh no!  Sounds like home!
 
Last today was Petunia Perry and the Curse of the Ugly Pigeon, where I heard about a competition to win a pound, but what you had to do was lick someone else's nose!  Who's up for that?!
 
Keep reading
 
Licky lick (on the nose! Haha!)

We were all welcomed by Testwood Baptist Church to celebrate Easter. Each year group sang a song and the Easter story was expertly told by a group of narrators. It was lovely to see so many parents and grandparents joining us for a wonderful service. Thanks to Testwood Baptist Church for hosting and well done to all the children and staff.
