On Thursday 13th March our KS2 cross-country team competed against other Basingstoke schools at Queen Mary’s College. It was a wonderful afternoon and everyone on the team ran fantastically! Our Year 3/4 boys and girls came very good 6th place; our Year 5/6 girls team came an excellent 3rd and our Year 5/6 boys team came an amazing 1st.
Well done to everyone!
Here is a short video of some of the photos from the event: KS2 Cross-Country 2014
Today was Fair trade day at school and there were many exciting events happening around the school and in the classes. Everyone enjoyed watching the teachers competing in Master Chef where they had to use a range of ingredients to make ‘crumbly banana squares’ . They had to decide which Fair trade ingredients to use and how much of each extra ingredient to use. Points were awarded for each Fair trade ingredient and also for how well each kitchen worked as a team. It was a highly competitive event with each kitchen determined to try their best and earn points!
At lunch time there was a treasure hunt on the playground for reception and key stage one children to take part in. It was free to enter but everyone had great fun trying to work out the mystery word.
Children and families had also been set the challenge to bake and decorate a cake using at least one Fair trade ingredient. There was a huge spread of talent and some amazing creations were laid out in the library for every one to have a look at in the afternoon. The cakes have been judged and the winners in each category will be announced on Monday.
Finally in the afternoon the whole school gathered again to see the outcome of the Master chef competition. The ‘crumbly squares’ were plated and sprinkled with fair trade caster sugar before being judged for appearance and taste. It was a difficult decision but the fair trade steering group enjoyed sampling the teachers culinary delights. The winning team was from kitchen 4 and Mr Bulpitt and Mrs Lucas have shared the prize of some Fair trade Bombay mix and Fair trade toffees. They were clearly thrilled with their victory!
It has been a great day and a massive thanks goes out to Mrs Charlton for arranging the day and for all her hard work.
