Hi there
It was great to be back at school today after my holiday in France.  I was so happy to see everyone, I got loads of tummy tickles today, plus I met some new infant friends too!
I settled down outside Year 3 and first of all, I listened to Space Hunt where Nok, Ant and Tiger were hiding from the Krools in space junk.  My favourite hiding place is in the long grass.  What's your favourite hiding place?
Next was Storm Castle, where Biff, Chip, Kipper and Wilma had to choose one of three doors.  They chose one where there were mirrors which gave them funny shapes.  One mirror even made them look like an alien!  Hahahahaha!
Snow King was next, where Ivanka and Katya were two sisters and Katya had to do all the housework.  I don't think that's very fair!  I quite like housework.  Did you know I can dust - with my tail!
Then it was Magic Animal Friends, where there was a friendship tree.  I think you should grow one of those at school!
Mountain Rescue came next and a man had stolen a bird's egg, but when the children chased him, he didn't have it in his bag.  Where was it?  You'll have to read the book to find out!
Pirate Adventure was a story where Biff, Chip and Kipper had a magic key which they used to open up a house and it turned into a beach! Wow! That sounds amazing!  Imagine if there was something unexpected every time you put your key in the front door at home!
Last today was Grumptus Attack where planet Exis is running out of power and Nok, Ant and the friends need to collect four fragments from the planet's core to put things right.
So many good stories today - and so many good readers too!
Keep reading!

Boy's Football

Monday saw a group of highly enthusiastic and ultimately talented Year 5 Calmore footballers take part in the Southampton schools under 10s six-a-side tournament at Wide Lane. The competition included 20 schools from the area and involved the boys taking part in 6 matches - no substitutes meant every player played every minute of every match. The boys competed supremely well throughout the matches: Michael making brace saves while Jeho and Alex marshalled the defence expertly, growing in confidence with each game. That enabled the tricky trio of Jayden, Jayden and George to terrorise the opposition defences. The team played so well and were victorious in four of the six. Unfortunately the team missed out on a semifinal place by just one point but had done so well considering it being their first matches together. Congratulations to each and every one of the boys. They did Calmore proud
