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.

Year 5 and 6 sailed on The Matthew today.  Conditions were perfect for learning about the historic Bristol docks and the journeys made by John Cabot on The Matthew.  Our school is named after John Cabot and The Matthew is our school logo which can be seen across the school on our uniforms and signage.

Book Week

Our theme for Book Week this year was “Share a story”.  I am pleased to tell you it was a big success!  It was great to have parents in sharing books and stories in different languages.  We also had our bedtime stories and World Book Day dress up day.

Thank you Ms Davies for organising everything and thanks to all the staff, parents and pupils who joined in making it such a happy week of learning.

Read And Get On Campaign

We had a special visitor in school this week.  Ann James is the  Director of Services for Children and Families across Bristol.  Ann took time out of her very busy schedule to come and listen to two of our fantastic Year 5 pupils read to her.  Both pupils took part in the Reading Recovery Programme when they were in Year 2.  They are now thriving in their learning and love reading.
