Hi there
Today as I sat and admired some cool masks made by Year 6, I could hear some great singing.  It made me want to join in too!  Like this, Aroooooooooooooooooo!
The first book today was Such a Fuss, where Chip had a hen called Viv, but she didn't want to go to bed, so Chip ... you'll have to read it to find out what happened!
Next was Trish the Jellyfish, and Trish was swept against the rocks by the tide.  Sally sardine needed some help too, so read this to find out how they helped each other.
Then I listened to Rock On! which was all about unusual instruments, like a skatar which is a cross between a skateboard and a guitar!  Wow!  How do you think that sounds?  Can you ride it too?
Fear Forest was next, and Nok and his friends were captured by the Gubloons - plants which can walk and talk.  Gulp!  That sounds a bit scary.  I wonder how they escaped?
The Village Show was next, and oh no!  Mrs Mudge's dandelion wine looked like it was going to win a prize again, but Dad had other plans ...
Then came The BFG , where the BFG told Sophie that she said the kindest things anybody had ever said to him.  Ah!
Spiro, Beast Quest was next, and Malvel had committed his worst crime yet, threatening Aduro's family.  
Great reading today.  Keep it up!

The team competed in events such as the 1, 2 and 3 lap race. They also competed in the indoor field events, such as, triple jump, long jump, shot put and speed bounce.

All the children showed great resilience and pride competing for the school and will be looking forward to the next event!

Athletics training at Testwood


Last week, eight pupils from Year 6 were given the exciting opportunity to travel to Testwood and train in their sports hall in preparation for this week's Sportshall Athletics league. Given access to the equipment and expert coaching, the pupils had a go at practising the throws, jumps and sprints that they shall participate in when they compete against other schools.
As well as shot put, standing long jump and speed bounce, they had a chance to hone their skills at sprints; they had to use special kick-boards that they bounced off in order to maximise speed and acceleration when completing 'laps' of the hall.
Good luck guys - do yourselves and Calmore proud!

Hi there
Well today I was with Year 3 and I could hear all sorts of wonderful Christmas singing practice as I settled down to listen to some great reading.
First of all was Shy Shark and I learned all about fat fish, thin fish, striped fish, jellyfish and even fish which can glow in the dark!
Next was The Lost Voice where Floppy wanted to help find Chip's voice.
After that I heard Grumptus Attack where the friends lay down on their bellies in the sand dunes. I like to do that too! Especially in the summer! Do you?
Then it was Stories of Princes and Princesses, where a hairy beggar took Prue home to be his wife, and guess what, he was actually a ... you'll have to read it to find out!
Last today was Wizard Blot and he needed a spell to get rid of a spot on his chin. Plus he'd lost his vest, pants and socks!
