YEAR 3 STONEAGE DAY
Thursday 12th October 2017

Year 3 have been learning all about the people who lived during the Stoneage era. We decided to hold a Stoneage Day so the children and staff could dress-up and experience some of the activities that the Stoneage people may have done. We all had a brilliant day.

      

         

    



      

    





         



   

   



   

    



   
 

BAKE OFF WEEK
1st - 4th November 2017

The 1st week back after the Autumn Break was our Bake Off week. The children baked something at home and brought it into school to be judged. There was a wonderful array of firework themed cakes and we really appreciated all those who were able to join us in the afternoons to take time out, have a coffee, enjoy the cakes and raise money for Winston's Wish. Altogether we raised £567.40 and 20 euros! Well done to all the bakers and thank you to all the judges.

SPORTING NEWS
AUTUMN TERMS


ALBERT DIX FOOTBALL TOURNAMENT - Friday 13th October 2017

In the opening 3 fixtures of our group, the teams have had some mixed fortunes.
A Team V Swindon Village Won 9-6
A Team V St Marks Won 6-3
B Team V St Marks Drew 1-1
A Team V Prestbury Lost 6-2
B Team V Prestbury Lost 5-3
A special mention must go to Lewis (Y5) who stood in brilliantly as the A Team goalkeeper against Prestbury, as we were a player short through illness. Well done Lewis!

GIRLS' FOOTBALL TOURNAMENT - Friday 4th October 2017
The tournament was played at multiple venues with Warden Hill hosting teams from Berkhampstead, St. John’s, Lakeside and Leckhampton schools. The opening fixture against Berkhampstead A was extremely close, 1-0 down with only 3 minutes to play, a brilliant tackle and through ball out of defence by Kira was scored by Isobel. In the last seconds of the game, Isobel scored again to win the game 2-1. In the following games against Lakeside A and St John’s, the girls worked brilliantly as a team, and were especially strong in defence. Winning the final two fixtures 1-0 and 2-1 meant Warden Hill qualified for the finals tournament for the 2nd successive year.
The finals tournament had 2 groups of 3, the winners of each group would play in the overall final. On arriving, Warden Hill watched Bishops Cleeve beat Oakwood, before having to face both teams themselves. We knew we were in for a tough match, as Cleeve had won the tournament in the past 3 years. When the game kicked off, Warden Hill were overpowered and went 3-0 down very quickly against a team that hadn’t conceded a goal yet! A late goal before half time gave us hope of a come back. In the second half, the girls played with brilliant energy and fight coming back to 3-2, and as the final whistle blew, had been pushing for the equalising goal. Although our only defeat, this was possibly the team’s best performance of the entire day. In the final fixture, Warden Hill faced a very strong Oakwood team. In a game that required resilience and positive characters, Warden Hill were outstanding in a 3-2 victory, which made Mr Williams and Mrs Newman extremely proud of how the girls conducted themselves on the pitch.
Warden Hill eventually finished 3rd in the Cheltenham wide tournament, a huge success, only losing 1 match all day. Well done girls! Mr Williams and Mrs Newman



MATHS CHALLENGE
Tuesday 10th October 2017

We started with some tricky but fun algebra problems e.g. B-C=E, then moved on to Count Down style problems (like in the TV show), in which we had to make a large number out of 6 smaller numbers.
In the finale, we had 20 cards and had to complete as many as possible within the time limit. Although neither of our teams won (we came 5th & 8th out of 22 teams), we had great fun and think we have proven to be great mathematicians!

REMEMBRANCE SERVICE
Friday 10th November 2017


Thank you for your contributions to the Remembrance Day Poppy Appeal, which will be sent to The Royal British Legion for their vital work supporting service personnel and their families.


Our Year 6 children led us in a Service of Remembrance this morning. We were reminded why we have Remembrance Day and why it is important to remember. The children recited the poem "In Flanders Field" written by a Canadian soldier and we remembered soldiers who had fallen and those who survived. W
e observed a minute of silence in honour of those who fought and died in all the wars. The service was delivered with sensitivity, understanding and respect. Thank you Year 6, we are so proud of you all.










 

 

In Flanders Fields

by John McCrae, May 1915

In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.

 

WHY DO WE HAVE REMEMBRANCE DAY?

11th of November 1918 signaled the end of The Great War; the Armistice between the Allies and Germany came into effect. At 11am the guns stopped. The first two minutes silence was held throughout Britain "at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month" in 1919.


WHY DO WE USE POPPIES?

A particularly fierce battle was fought in the Flanders region of Belgium. Thousands of men fought and died there; the whole area was devastated and became a sea of mud. The only other living thing found there were the poppies which flowered each year. A poem was written by John McCrae, a Canadian soldier, in 1915 called "In Flanders Fields". The British Legion launched the first Poppy Day Appeal in 1921 to raise money for British soldiers and their families.


SINCE 1921, the nation has come together to remember the sacrifices that hundreds of thousands of British and Commonwealth Service men and women made not just during the Great War, but World War II and all subsequent wars and conflicts including Iraq and Afghanistan.

At the 11th hour on the 11th day of the 11th month,
we will remember them

THE MUD KITCHEN
Autumn

We are very lucky to have such talented parents and those who are willing to give up their own time to help our school. Our new Reception children’s ’Mud Kitchen’ is down to the hard work of two such individuals. So thank you Morgan (Ava’s Dad) and Tim (Reuben’s Dad) for our amazing Mud Kitchen - the children love it!

   

   


Children in Need Charity Day
Friday 17th November 2017



The Children in Need Appeal is an annual, national appeal which raises awareness (and lots of money) to help positively change the lives of disadvantaged children and young people in the UK and abroad. The children and staff were invited to come into school wearing something spotty for a suggested donation of £1 to the Appeal, and they looked 'spotacular'!
Total amount raised will be announced soon,
Below are some of the classes, see if you can "spot" yours!
