The Y3/4 Colmers Cup took place yesterday. Eight of our children represented our school and we are pleased to announce that they came joint First with Broadwindsor and Charmouth.
Year 5 went to Weymouth Outdoor Education Centre on Tuesday 18 June. All the children took part in the sailing activity, learning how to steer and manoeuvre the boat using the sails. They also learned lots of nautical terms. Later on they went on a climbing wall, learning how to get foot and hand holds to scale the various walls using a body harness to make sure they were safe. The last activity of the day was to negotiate tunnels, following tracks using a head torch and teamwork to get them round. All the children had a fantastic day and learnt lots of new skills.
