Go Like Mo

Wow!
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.
