The year 4 swim team had a fantastic time at the gala last week. They took part in races against other local schools. Geoff Goodrick managed to scoop second in the 25m breaststroke. The children were amazingly well behaved and were a credit to the school. Big thanks to Mr Gool who came with us to support!
Our last Team Day at Conifers was truly terrific. We emulated the style of Athony Gormley, creating a collaborative piece of art reflecting our sense of community and our place within this as individuals. All of our work, as always, was based on the five British values : democracy, law, tolerance, mutual respect and individual liberty. We are now gearing up for our next Team Day which will be based on the month of Ramadan with reference to our British values.
Some Year 4 children were able to enjoy a morning of cricket skills and games in the sunshine at Redlands last Thursday. The children learnt some basic skills of bowling, fielding and batting. They all had a wonderful time and are all looking forward to taking part in competitive matches next year.
Years 1 to 6 enjoyed an afternoon of sporting skills in their houses on Friday as they battled it out to win the house cup. The sport leaders run the afternoon, rating each team on the school games values: teamwork, honesty, determination and respect. The children enjoyed participating in 6 skills stations of football, rugby, hockey, tennis, cricket and basketball.
The year 6 football team, with one year 5 player, finally enjoyed success and a trophy by winning the indoor football tournament at Redlands on Friday. They secured their first piece of silverware by beating Bincombe Valley in the final 3-0, with Troy Muir scoring a hat-trick. In the group games, they also beat Radipole, St George’s and Southill. Well done to all the boys!
Year 4 enjoyed their trip to the Tri-Golf festival on Thursday. We travelled to Colfox School in Bridport for the event on a double decker coach. The children all enjoyed their day taking part in different stations. Conifers 1 managed to win the Weymouth and Portland area festival totalling a massive 1145 points! Miss Frampton was super proud of her team having tried to win the competition for the last 4 Years! Thank you to our valuable parent helpers who helped the trip go
Year 4 enjoyed a once in a life time 'Trip to Madrid' just after the Easter break, to kick start their 'Globetrotters' topic. The children filed into departures and went through tough security measures before boarding the plane. They enjoyed watching the in flight safety video before landing in Madrid where the weather was beautiful! The children researched the country and produced an information leaflet.
