Aztek culture ignites the imagination of the Year 4 children

Y4-Mexiclore_0004
On Thursday Year 4 pupils were entertained by Ian and Joanna of Mexicolore. They arrived laden with Aztec and Mayan artefacts, pictures, costumes and musical instruments and transformed the PAC for a morning of learning about Aztec and Mayan culture and history. The children were enthralled and everyone in Year 4 got involved wearing costumes, playing drums, whistles, ocarinas, blowing conch shells and chanting in Náhuatl (the Aztec language). They learned about the Aztec gods , including Quetzalcoatl, Tlaloc, and Huitzilopochtli. The day ignited the children’s imaginations and sparked many more questions, some of which we are still finding answers to! They can find out more and email in questions at www.aztecs.org.

Summer Week 8

Cricket_0001
It has been another fantastic week of sport here at St Neot’ as we have basked in some glorious sunshine. Some of our athletes were selected to represent the school at West Surrey athletics recently, with some fantastic performances. For the girls, Connie Jones and Mia Fergusson came 3rd in their age groups for the 800m final. Rosie Pearson came 4th in the High jump and Chloe Mannering – Smith 7th in the Rounders ball throw, whilst April Anderson came 2nd in her heat and 8th in the 100m final.On the boy’s side, Charlie Jones ran superbly to finish 2nd overall in the 1500m and qualify for the Nationals in Birmingham, whilst Harry Prescott also ran well to finish 4th.On Wednesday the U10 cricket team took part in the Oratory school cricket tournament, where they played brilliantly to finish runners up. They won all 3 group matches against strong teams from Moulsford, OPS and Davenies, before narrowly losing the final against The Dragon School. This was a fantastic achievement given both the level of competition and the high temperatures.The Colts E rounders team have had an amazing season and their win yesterday secured them an unbeaten season this term.Please note that next week we have Lower School Sports Day on Thursday and Main School Sports Day on Friday. For Main School Sports Day pupils need to have white socks, blue shorts/skorts, and red tops.

Intrepid Year 2 take on every challenge!

Yr-2-Oakwood_0001
The brave Year 2 staff and helpers at St Neot’s embarked on their two night adventure with Year 2 this week to Oakwood.! The children have surpassed everyone’s expectations; not only have they been incredibly polite (staff at Oakwood have complimented them on their impeccable manners) but many of them have also overcome personal challenges. On a little less than ideal sleep, the children have climbed, wobbled, zig-zagged, laughed, aimed, encouraged, ridden, fallen and got straight back up again. A comment from one of the Oakwood leaders summed up the spirit of the trip....'I asked who managed to get the top bunk (most children have big fights over this) and the little boy replied matter-of-factly, ‘I really wanted it and so did my friend so I let him have it.' What an amazing bunch of children! The teachers couldn’t be more proud.
