Super Stride Friday 23 June

We are excited to announce that this year we aim to breathe new life into our playground by having the faded markings removed, and brand-new markings installed. The quotes that we have received to do this are quite costly, so in order to raise funds to complete the works we will be holding a Super Stride!

Super Stride will be a fun, 2k or 5k (your choice!) run or walk. Come in fancy dress as your favourite super hero – you can even make up your own super hero, and there will be a prize for the best dressed. Parents & siblings are invited to take part and to also get sponsored. The class who raises the most money will get a reward.

Super Stride will take place on Friday 23rd June at 1.30pm. Parents & siblings can arrive from 1.20pm. Students can come to school already in their fancy dress. (Fancy dress is optional)

A sponsor form can be obtained from the office and we will happily print extra sheets if needed.

Mr Harris will also be partaking in the Super Stride, but he will be doing a 10k. He will begin at the school and finish at the school, but his route will take him around the village.

Eggs for Sale!

2.5.22 – Harris, one of our enterprising young students, is selling eggs from his hens. Half the proceeds will go to the feed for the hens and the other half he is generously donating to the school.

There is a container full of eggs on the school roundabout along with an honesty box. The eggs will be selling fast so be quick!

Well done Harris!

Kwik Cricket enjoyed!

19.4.23 – Last Tuesday afternoon, 8 of our children took part in the Kwik Cricket Tournament at Beaminster Memorial Playing Fields. The team were captained superbly by Archie with 6 players on the pitch at one time either batting or fielding.

We played 4 games on 2 different pitches and all our children excelled in both positions.

Parrett and Axe team won 1 game, drew 1  and lost 2 by a small margin. The children upheld all our school and Olympic sporting values and enjoyed a brilliant afternoon of Cricket.

Congratulations to them all.

Futsal Tournament 3rd place!

29.3.23 – On Tuesday 28th March, 11 of our Year 3 and 4 boys and girls participated in the Futsal Tournament Finals at Sir John Colfox school.
As always, our Parrett and Axe children displayed all our school values of Kindness, Respect, Courage and Equality and finished a credible 3rd. This was after a tense penalty shoot-out against Sticklands school from Evershot.
A special mention must go to our heroic goal-keeper who saved 2 of the penalty kicks.

As always, we thank the parents who transported and supported our children at this event.

Well Done Hockey Team!

21.3.23 – On Tuesday 14th March, 10 of our children took part in the Quicksticks Tournament at Sir John Colfox school in Bridport.

We played 5 games in Round Robin matches. Each game was played over 12 minutes, 6 minutes each way.

Each child played expertly and with great determination and skill. We came 3rd on Goal difference and all our pupils played brilliantly upholding our school and Olympic Values.
