Harvest Festival 2017

Today we celebrated our Harvest Festival in song and thought provoking poetry. We reminded ourselves to be thankful for the food we eat that comes from both locally and all around the world.

Go Like Mo

The reaction to the challenge set before our pupils - to run a marathon before
half term - has been incredible. Every lunchtime, children from each year group have been
running laps of the school playground in order to complete their daily one
mile target.But that's not just it...Most of those children have decided that if they can achieve one mile, then two is obtainable as well...Or perhaps even three!!!Marshalled superbly by a group of Year 6 pupils, the children have been gettingtheir cards stamped in order to add to their daily running record. By the time  Friday arrives, and every pupil in the school completes a mile, many will have surpassed the 26 mile target!

The Twits Come to Calmore

This morning during assembly, two amazing actors (Mr Darch and Miss Ingram) performed a scene from The Twits by Roald Dahl as part of our whole school writing day. They showcased 'The Worms Scene' and Miss Ingram-AKA Mrs Twit forced Mr Twit to eat worms. (Luckily Heinz spaghetti!)

The children thoroughly enjoyed the performance and then went on to produce some wonderful writing.

Hi there
I was with Year 3 again today, hey hey!
First up was Beast Quest The Soul Seeker, where the flying beast swooped down from the sky and stole Aduro the wizard's soul.  How will he get it back?
Next was Horrid Henry and the Mummy's Curse, where Horrid Henry was copying Clever Clare's spellings to try to win a bag of sweets.
Beast Quest Spiros The Ghost Phoenix was after that, and I heard the bit about a girl riding on a phoenix's back.  Wow!  I hope she was holding on tight!
The Village Shop was a good story about Jo and Kate making dandelion wine.
Then I listened to Sands of Akura, where the friends had to save planet Exis from running out of power., but how?
Alien Adventure Chamber of Treasure was next, where Tiger could feel something under his boot.  What do you think it was?
Next up was Goosebumps Return of the Mummy, and Gabe's uncle Ben told him about the tomb they were going to open up ... ooooh! What do you think they ouind?
Trains Speed Up came next, and I found out all about bullet trains in Japan.
Then I listened to The Broken Roof where there were workmen in Edward's room, mending the roof.
Last today was Dragon Hunter, where Burden wanted to trap a dragon.  How could he do that, do you think?
Great reading today.  Keep it up everyone!
