Due to sickness at the last moment, one of our year 4 boys ran in the Year 5/6 race so we could still enter that team. Each team consisted of 2 girls and 2 boys and in the Year 3/4 races they had to pass the baton to the next runner. Every child ran 1000m and all were a credit to our school. Well done.

15.11.22 – On Wednesday 9th November, 8 of our Year 5/6 children attended the Primary Leadership Training at Beaminster School. There were about 130 children there from different schools from the Portland/Weymouth/Bridport and Beaminster area. The training was to teach leadership values and skills, leading healthy lifestyles, understanding the importance of inclusion, honesty, determination, teamwork and self-belief.
The children attended different workshops including one where they had to decide how to bring their learnt knowledge back into school and how it could be acted upon.
The ambassadors will be constructing a survey for the whole school to see what activities they do each week, a lunch-box survey to encourage healthy eating (including the 5 or more portions of fruit and vegetables a day) and run lunch-time activities once or twice a week for KS1 to develop skills.
The children were given their Bronze Ambassador t-shirts and will be awarded Sports ambassadors badges.
Well done to our 8 children who now join with our 3 from last year to make a strong team.

27.6.22 – Last Friday, we enjoyed our annual Sports Day. The whole school took part in sprints, relay, novelty races and throwing events. Well done to all who took part and congratulations to Respect House who came top in the points.
On Tuesday 21st June, 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.
3.5.22- These photographs were taken at the Dorset Indoor Athletics County Finals, held at the Purbeck school in Wareham, on Friday 29th April. We came joint 5th place and our Athletes were superb. We were the only primary school representing the South West of Dorset.
On Saturday 12th March 15 of our Year 5/6 children took part in the Tag Rugby festival at the Bridport Rugby Club. All children played superbly winning 7 out of the 8 matches. Our last match was against St Catherine’s, who had also won all of their matches throughout the morning. Unfortunately, they beat us meaning that we took second place overall. Our children were presented with medals from the Chair of the Rugby Club. All of them displayed the sporting values of teamwork, passion, honesty, respect and self-belief; they were a credit to our school and themselves. We would like to thank all the parents that came and supported at this event and a special thank you to Malcolm and Tammy Dommett for all their hard work in training our superb team. We are so lucky to have such supportive parents and enthusiastic children.
