Quad Kids get Bronze

On Tuesday 28th June, 16 of our wonderful Year 3 and 4 athletes took part in the Quad Kids Athletic Event at Sir John Colfox School in Bridport. Many schools from the Bridport and Beaminster area took part. The pupils participated in 4 events; Standing Long Jump, Vortex Howler throw, 60m Sprint and 400m run. They then took part in a baton relay while all the scores were being accumulated.

Our A team came 3rd overall and all received bronze medals plus certificates along with our superb B team. Congratulations.

Thank you to all the parents that supported us at this event.

Yr 5 Go Sailing

22.6.22 – Yesterday, Year 5, staff and helpers set off at 8-30am for the WOEC centre in Weymouth.

After a safety briefing, the children got into wet-suits, helmets and buoyancy vests before being transported to the sailing area. The children were in fun boats in groups of 2 or 3 and towed out around the pier by the rib boat. They were shown how to put up the sail and steer. They all had a fantastic time sailing around in the calm waters of Weymouth. At the end of the session, they were all allowed to jump into the sea if they wished which involved much laughter and splashing.

After returning to the centre, the children showered and changed then ate their lunches. They then took part in centre based activities including: wall climbing around the hall, then rock climbing outside in harnesses where all the children learnt about the ropes and safety aspects and how to operate the ropes. Back inside, the children tried out the tunnels having to follow animal trails with their head torches on and again supporting and encouraging their friends. After this, we went back into the main hall and tried the high steep walls in harnesses. Lots of our wonderful children climbed the walls and learnt how to abseil down safely.

The coach journey back was much quieter with lots of them sleeping after such a busy, fun-filled day.

I am so delighted that so many of them faced things they had never done before and conquered so many fears.

A brilliant day for us all.

New Interactive Site for 4-7 year olds

Think you know have just launched a new website for 4-7 year old to help with staying safe online.

The website is based on the three-episode Jessie & Friends animated series, which aims to equip 4-7 year olds with the knowledge, skills and confidence they need to stay safer online. It is intended to be used by 4-7 year olds alongside their parents and carers, or within education settings as a learning tool.
