SS: January 2017
Yesterday 8 of us went to Brine Leas High School for a Fustal Competition. Having had no previous experience of Futsal we were all looking forward this new opportunity. We were up against 3 other schools and by the end of the competition we had definitely got a better understanding of this new format.
Our first game was a close game in which our defence of Ethan and Charlie had to work very hard with Charlie pulling off some very good saves to deny their strikers. We emerged victorious with goals from Ben and Ollie. Our next game was against a very strong side who were the tournament winners who played very well and we lost 2-1. Knowing that a victory could still qualify us for the final we had all to play for in our final game and we justified this with a brilliant performance. Scoring with the first kick of the game we dominated throughout winning 4-1 with goals from Ben H, Ollie x 2 and Ben. Everyone who played did so in the spirit of the game and was a credit to the school.
UPDATE: Thanks to our final game we finished second in our group which has done us enough to qualify us for the next round of the competition on 9th Feb due to the top team being unable to make that date! Letters will be going out soon for this. Well done everyone!
Thank you to all the parents who supported us and took us to and from the event.
Ollie and Mr Sargeant.

We've had a great time this week in Base 4. We've continued out work on properties of materials, investigating thermal insulators, dissolving and methods of separating materials. The children made some fantastic observations when finding out if materials were soluble or insoluble and lots of scientific inquiry was on display. I was impressed with how well the children used the...
We have been budding scientists this week. After reading our class text 'The Garbage King', we decided that Mamo needed a new mattress as we felt that a straw one probably wasn't that comfy. Before we could even think about making them, we needed to investigate the properties of the materials that we found on the 'garbage dump'. We couldn't make a mattress without...
