Summer Fair 2019

Cabot Summer Fair 2019 was a big success!  All the traditional fair activities were here including Hook a Duck, Coconut Shy and Splat the Teacher.  We also welcomed our friendly local police who brought some vehicles and kit to share with the children.

 

Thank you to Claire for leading our PTFA.  This is a very special event which we know you work hard to make happen.  Thanks also to everyone who made donation of food to sell.

Cabot Carnival

The school was full of colour today as we enjoyed our Cabot Carnival!  Last week, Carole Johnson from the St Paul’s Carnival Committee came to tell us about how music and dance and community can bring people together.   We certainly experienced that with parents, staff and children all joining in together.  Each class made costumes and head wear to go with his year’s Carnival theme of Travel. After the dancing procession, each class treated us to a piece Carnival themed, performance poetry.

Primary Engineer Challenge

Our Engineering Club entered pupils from both Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 into the UWE Primary Engineer Competition.  Children had to make vehicles that could perform within precise specifications.  We’ve been very lucky to receive some brilliant support from Mr Adrian who comes to our club each week.  He also helped ensure that our vehicles looked the best on show!  I’m pleased to tell you that Hamse was awarded runner up in his age category. Well done all who took part.

Carnival Assembly

It’s always a pleasure to have a visit from Councillor Carole Johnson.  Today she brought some Carnival sunshine to our Friday assembly.  Carole told us about this year’s Travel theme.  At school we have been preparing for our Carnival by making our costumes and planning our performances.

Some children, and two very lucky members of staff, got to come to the front of assembly and wear some carnival costumes and have a dance around the hall.

Thank you Carole for bringing the message of Carnival to Cabot today, along with some Carnival sunshine!

Bristol Together Championship

Pupils from Cabot were partnered with children from Brunel Fields to make up a team to play together in this years’ Bristol Together Championship.  The tournament brings together children from different schools across the city to play with each other.  Our team ‘Cabot Fields’ has been playing together for the past couple of months.  The children have got to know each other very well and have worked on both their football skills and working as a team.  We are very proud that they represented both schools and communities so well.  They also did a great job of finishing second in the tournament!

Royal Bath and West Show

I am very pleased to tell you that Cabot children won the Bath and West Country Environmental School Award!

Children from Cabot were invited to attend the Royal Bath and West Show to collect our trophy and cheque for £200.  During the half term holiday, Mrs Redwood and Miss Tupman took a group of pupils from Cabot to attend the event.  We had a great day out enjoying all that was on show.  Have look at our photos to see what our children took part in.

Spelling Bee

Well done to our Year 6 Spelling Bee Team.  Our school came second in a very strongly contested competition with some very tricky words.  After 4 rounds our school had the highest number of players left in.  We then moved on to some very tricky words in the sudden death rounds.  Imam was our school champion, who expertly spelled her way to securing us second place overall.  Well done team and thank you to the rest of Year 6 who came along to support.

 

How would you have got on? The words the children were asked to spell included: conscience, guarantee, sovereign, exquisite, consistency, professionally, hesitant, vicious, dependency.  Imagine standing in front of a room full of children and adults and being asked to spell some of these?  Very well done to all who took part.
