South Marston School News – May 2012

On Saturday 2nd June the School will be taking part in the village Jubilee celebrations. The street party and entertainment will run from 2pm until 4pm and promises to be great fun for all the family, with everyone being encouraged to bring their own picnic to share. The School will be contributing towards the entertainment and are also running a royal fancy dress competition for all the children on the day, encouraging them to come dressed as their favourite member of the Royal Family past or present. We look forward to seeing you there!

On Friday 23rd March we took part in the Sport Relief Mile. All of the children were invited to wear their sports clothes for the day and donate £1 to Sport Relief. We also ran around the Recreation field towards the end of the day and were joined by many parents and grandparents running with their children. Well done to everyone who took part! We would also like to thank Sainsbury’s of Stratton for sponsoring the event with drinks for the children and even providing some fantastic mascots!

Last term Class 1 had a great time visiting the Science exploration centre of @Bristol to conclude their topic all about Space. They visited the planetarium where they learnt about a bear’s journey into Space and all the stars and planets he saw. They then journeyed into the jungle, learnt about fossils in the desert and even took turns to drive a giant water wheel.

Any Old China? – Still Collecting?

SMRA is hoping to put on a china-smashing stall for the Summer Fete this July, so if you have any old china that it will not be heart-breaking to see in pieces, please let me know. You can either drop it off at Church Farmhouse any time (leave by the door if there is no reply) or ring me and I’ll collect it. No item refused!

Many thanks Jenny McEwen tel. 825312
