March 2021 - we're travelling to Tokyo! Well, virtually at least - to celebrate the rescheduled Tokyo 2020 Olympic and Paralympic Games, we've joined in with Get Set Tokyo to get active with their virtual Travel to Tokyo challenge - Team GB and ParalympicsGB’s free programme for children aged 5 to 11 and their families.
We're logging all our activity to build up miles on the journey to the Tokyo Olympics, taking place this year, in July.
Here's where children and their families can log their activity - School Dashboard
We got to Tokyo!! And then started all over again! Well done everyone - lots of activity logged!
Futsal Tournament - a team of Yr 3/4 pupils went to Colfox School to take part in an inter-school Futsal event. It was great fun to be involved in competitive school sport again!
Cricket - Chance to Shine programme
For our Harvest 2020, we joined forces with the Broadwindsor Church community to raise funds in aid of Tap Twinning - an organisation that helps to stop the spread of coronavirus in vulnerable communities across more than 35 countries so people have the information and resources they need to protect themselves through handwashing and good hygiene. Our donations helped to buy two taps - one each for a community in Nepal and Malawi.
We took part in the Spring term Cross Country races in February and the Relay Race in March - very muddy but we were lucky enough to run on two of the few lovely sunny days we've had this term!
One of our school traditions is to decorate the Christmas tree with the children's school-made decorations. Thank you to Beaminster Christmas Trees for donating a wonderful tree and to the PTA for getting the lights and some of the decorations on, ahead of the assembly:
