Challenging times for the Year 5 maths team!

Maths-Challenge_0001

Four St Neot’s pupils took part in the annual Year 5 Maths Challenge at Pangbourne College this week, pitting their knowledge and wits against other local schools. The day got off to a promising start with the competition to build the tallest, strongest tower out of newspaper, string, tape and elastic bands. The team managed an impressive  tower of just under 50cm with a triangular based structure, whilst simultaneously solving some challenging maths problems. After this there was a round of logic puzzles and by lunchtime the team was in 3rd place and hopes were high.

Autumn Week 3

football
It has been a great start to the sporting year here at St Neot’s. The children have returned excited for the term ahead, and keen to succeed in their sporting endeavours. The highlight of the opening weeks was the superb win for the 1st XI football team at St Andrew’s, after some heart breaking losses in previous years. We have had some superb hockey results for the girls as well to start the term, with the 1st team winning both their matches, and the U10As taking team of the week this week for their comprehensive 10-3 win over Thorngrove.Next week is incredibly exciting with a huge number of tournaments taking place. On Wednesday the Colts A head to Dolphin looking to defend their title, whilst the U11As have a hockey tournament at Yateley Manor. On Saturday the U13 girls travel to Hall Grove for a hockey tournament. We are also hosting a hockey festival ourselves on Friday afternoon for the U9 girls, which we are really looking forward to!

They planned, marketed and budgeted for a sale to save the animals.The stalls were incredibly busy, with our young salespeople creating a real buzz. They worked out prices and mentally calculated change and we were thrilled to see the customers leaving happy! On top of that, they managed to raise a whopping £62.50 for the WWF. What an achievement at such a young age!

Year 6 travel back to Anglo Saxon times

Y6-Ufton-Court_0013
One half of the year group arrived early Monday morning and stayed until Tuesday afternoon, whilst the other half visited from Tuesday to Wednesday, and their experiences were very similar. The children took part in various activities, including honing their skills at archery and following a Saxon rune trail across the grounds of the beautiful Elizabethan house. They also tried their hand at numerous Saxon games, including a favourite for many - Kubb! Everything, though, was building up to the main event - a Saxon banquet. Everyone got dressed up in traditional Saxon attire, and feasted on a hearty meal whilst serving at the pleasure of Mr Fearn, Mr Berger-North, Mrs Prescott, Mrs Watt and Mrs Steel! The woodland cabins were home for the evening, and after a little free time the children were grateful for the opportunity to rest (some more grateful than others!)The following morning pupils took part in the Battle of Reading reenactment, which occurred in 871AD, and discovered lots of ancient artefacts dating from the time of the Romans all the way to World War II. The enthusiasm was especially evident during the archaeological dig, and it was a trip that will live long in the memory.
