This Thursday we have the privilege of an author visiting the school: Andy Seed. Please see http://www.andyseed.com for details about his work.
There will also be a session for parents and carers immediately after school (3:30-4pm) for which all parents are invited to. Hopefully, the children will really enjoy the session.
Today, Kestrel class enjoyed travelling round the junior classes where they listened to and took part in activities based on famous books. The books were, in order: ‘Snow Dragon’, ‘Esio Trot‘ by Roald Dahl, ‘Shel Silverstein’s poetry’ and ‘Shackleton’s Journey.’
A big well done to Anlyn, who won the ‘best badge’competition for her illustration of ‘The Hobbit!’ – See photo attached.
St Philip’s Mixed Year 6 team braved the cold, and headed, with their hats, scarves, gloves, rugs, etc., to the local Odd Down Sports Ground to face a range of other schools for 7-a-side football! Highlights included a three minute hat-trick from Edmund in the first game, some courageous saves from George, and numerous tackles from our indomitable team, who left the pitch cold, yet cheerful. Well done to everyone!
On Monday 5th March we are hosting an ‘Internet Safety Day’. During school hours there are special sessions for the children, while after school at 6:30pm there is a session especially designed for parents to listen to a speaker and ask questions. This evening session will, like last year, be held in the school hall, and is for all parents and school staff.
