Congratulations to Beth, Jess, Tom and Corey who played brillantly in the Ansford and Sexey’s Federation Tennis Tournament on Friday, coming third overall.
They all won lots of matches and Beth played particularly well, winning all 6 of her singles matches and 2 of the 3 doubles matches she played.
We all got soaked as we walked back to school as the heavens opened and thunder clashed above our heads! But no-one minded because it had been a thoroughly good morning. Well done to the Countess Gytha Team!
Congratulations to Larissa Warren in Yr 6 who was awarded her third Blue Peter badge this week.
Thank you to Thomas and William Scrowston for baking and selling cakes on Friday to raise funds for the school. A big thank you to their mum, Vicky, for running the Yeovil Half Marathon and raising £300 for the school!
Finally, have a great half term holiday. Why not come along on Friday 31st May for Pirate Day run by Sue Huggins and Phil Strong. It should be great fun.
What a fantastic time we had at Huish Park today! The whole school lined up outside the ground and were privileged to meet all the players and manager, Gary Johnson. We were the only school at the ground to see the team set off on their open topped bus on their victory parade around Yeovil. The players spent a lot of time chatting to the children, signing autographs and having their photographs taken with them. Some of the children even got to hold the cup!
We were interviewed by BBC Somerset Radio reporters and filmed by BBC TV. We also had many photographs taken by the Western Gazette. Look out for the school on Points West this evening!
Well done to all the children who came to the Queen Camel Annual Village Meeting on Friday evening. There were so many comments from members of the community about their lovely singing outside the hall.
Thank you to Rosemary Heath-Coleman, Chairman of the Parish Council, and members of the Environment Group and Frontrunner Steering Group for my beautiful hydrangea. It looks lovely on my patio.
Thank you to Phil Strong for another fantastic Boots and Scoots on Saturday. There were so many children and parents scooting around the playground, it looked like a roller disco!
Now you can buy a Boots and Scoots T-shirt! See newsletter for details.
Next Boots and Scoots is on 29th June. Come along and have fun! And it’s FREE!
On Thursday children from the Drama Club led by Sue Huggins travelled to Fiveways Special School to perform ‘Mr Magnolia’s Boot’. It was great and thoroughly enjoyed by everyone. After the performance Phil Strong led a craft workshop based on the story to make a decorated boot. Countess Gytha children worked really well with children from Fiveways and everyone was really proud of their final boots. Look at the delight on their faces!
