Mighty Mountains

Mighty-Mountains_0002a
Year 3 began their next cross-curricular adventure last week - ‘Mighty Mountains’! They have been learning all about mountain ranges across the world and how dramatically the climate can change in these mountainous environments.   Imagine climbing Mount Everest, the highest mountain in the world at 8850 metres … numbing cold, steep icy peaks, raging storms and howling winds...! Why would anyone risk such dangers to climb a mountain?! Our young adventurers will be finding out what motivates these mountaineers when they are faced with such potential dangers and pitfalls, as well as the preparation involved before a big expedition. In the words of Edmund Hillary, ‘You don’t have to be a fantastic hero to do certain things...to compete...’

Rainforests and ancient cities - it’s all in a week’s work for Year 4

Mighty-Mountains_0001
Year 4 have had a great start to the term! They have returned to school full of energy and exciting tales from their Easter break. We have loved hearing about them. The rehearsals for the Middle School musical are in full swing and the children cannot wait for you to see what they have been working on. We have also started work on both our history and geography topics. In history the children have learnt about the ancient city of Chichen Itza and all the landmarks you would find there. In geography our topic is Rainforests, specifically the Amazon and the children now know where in the world you would find a Rainforest. They have also learnt about the different layers of the Rainforest and what plants and animals might live there. They even came up with actions to help them remember the different levels!

Challenging times for our mathematicians!

maths_revision
Last week some of our top performing mathematicians in Years 6 - 8 took part in the UK’s most popular mathematics competition,  the Junior Maths Challenge, which is produced and marked by UKMT (the United Kingdom Mathematics Trust), based at the University of Leeds. The annual challenges, designed to stimulate mathematical problem solving,  are aimed at Years 7- 8 (Junior), 9 -11 (Intermediate) and 11-18 (Senior), with over 300,000 students taking part each year. The very highest achievers will be given the opportunity to compete in the Mathematical Olympiad. Feedback from those taking part ranged from “feeling confident”, to “that was really hard”! Well done to all participating pupils for taking part so willingly. We look forward to receiving the results in a few weeks.

Summer Term Week 1

Sport-Wk-1_0007
It has been a running start to the Summer Term on the sporting front, with fixtures for all year groups taking place this week. The boys' 1st XI got their season off to a flyer with an 8 wicket win over Yateley Manor, whilst the 2nd XI’s victory saw our first 50 of the season from Ollie H-M and then the first 5 wicket haul from Ollie S. On the girls’ side, there were convincing wins for the first team and the U11A’s against the same opposition. The U11A’s managed the impressive feat of not losing a single wicket in their pairs match! Team of the Week has been awarded to the girls’ first team for starting their season so well, and winning by 54 runs. Well done girls!We are pleased to announce that there are new St Neot’s cricket caps available from the second hand shop from Tuesday 7th May. There is a sample in Reception currently, if you would like to have a look. There is an addition to the fixture list over the coming weeks, with the U13 Hampshire Cup cricket fixture on Monday 13th May for the boys. The term is going to be an action packed one so could we please remind parents to continue to regularly check Firefly for the Team sheets. We also have a couple of big events before half term. Race for Life is on Sunday 12th May at 10.00am and it would be brilliant to see as many people there as possible, supporting and raising money for such a worthwhile cause. In addition, the annual House triathlon will be taking place on Thursday 23rd May for all pupils in Years 3-8. All children will need to have their bikes in school, as well as a helmet, to participate. Tennis teams play their first fixtureOur senior tennis teams played their first fixture of the summer season against Robert May's School on Thursday. The LTA Schools Team Tennis is a national competition, with the first rounds being played at county level. Our girls’ team of Jazireh S, Olivia G, Kitty W and Dominie D were on unbeatable form, winning their tie 6 - 0 without dropping a set. The boys (Ben J, Ethan R, Finn N and Dillon M) had a tough battle against strong opposition and came away second best, losing 2 - 4. Finn had a good singles win and Ethan should be hugely congratulated for turning out at very short notice and achieving a magnificent win in an extremely tight match against old Neotonian teammate, Ollie S. The whole fixture was played in great spirit and our teams look forward to a busy competition schedule over the coming weeks.
