World Book Day

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 TrotScience and World Book Day Winners 018‘ 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.

Football in the cold….

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!

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.
