Our Summer Fair will be held on and around our school grounds on Monday 24th July between 1.30pm and 3pm.  You are invited to collect your children from classes at 1pm and then accompany them to the fair.  School staff and PTFA will then spend 1pm to 1.30pm setting up the Fair.  Any uncollected children will not be able to attend the school fair.  They will be in our Studio room supervised by school staff.  Collections after 1pm must be made via the school office.

The PTFA would be very grateful to any parents who are able on the day.  We also welcome donations of vegetarian and nut free food.  If you are able to help, please contact Claire Humpherys, either via the school office on talk to her directly at drop off and collection times.

We look forward to seeing  you all there!

Primary Engineer Awards

Pupils from our after school Engineering Club attend a citywide competition organised by the Ministry of Defence.    Children from Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 met up with other children from across the city to test their motorized vehicles against a set of specific criteria that include travelling up and down a ramp and moving forwards and backwards in straight lines.  Cabot children were awarded special certificates for Communication.  They were able to articulate very clearly how they had designed and constructed their models.  |Thank you Miss Quinton and Mr Adrian from the MoD for running Engineering Club and entering us in this competition.

Visit to Hindu Temple

Out Year 3 and Year 4 pupils went to visit Bristol’s only Hindu Temple on Church Road.  The priest was very welcoming.  He told us that we should all feel very proud of our own religious beliefs and respect all religions.  He then told us lots about the Hindu Temple and the Hindu community in Bristol.

Staff v Parents Football Match

I think this is the fourth year running we’ve played our Staff v Parents football match and it was another classic!  The balance swung back and forth throughout the game.  Parents took an early 3-0 lead and it looked like they might run away with it until Mr Town hit home for Staff.  With a new found confidence, Staff went on to level the game to 3-3.  From then on it was very even until late in the game when Staff managed to go two ahead with the score at 5-7.  It looked like Staff had won the game but in the dying seconds Parents scored twice in short succession to end the match 7-7.    Thans you to all Staff and Parents who played and the many of you that came out to support.  Can’t wait for the next game!

Relationship and Sex Education

In Term 6 we will be teaching some lessons from a scheme of work called ‘Living Long, Living Strong’  from our Relationship and Sex Education Curriculum.  These lessons are derived from learning objectives from the Personal Social Health Education Association.   They are aimed at supporting children to learn about keeping healthy as they grow up.  In some of the lessons they will learn about the changes that happen to people as they grow.  Some of this lessons are part of the statutory National Curriculum for Science.  The Department for Education has indicated that as of 2019, Relationship education will also become part of the statutory National Curriculum.  We have chosen to deliver lessons that we think will be useful to help children learn about themselves and others and grow up safely.

You are invited to come to meet with our PSHE Leader, Mrs Carter, and Mr Burton to see the lesson plans and discuss any concerns you may have.

Forest of Dean Residential

We have had a fantastic time at time at the Dean Field Studies Centre in the Forest of Dean.  The Year 5 and Year 6 pupils lived out our values of Partnership, Inclusion and Excellence throughout the time we were there.  We were so impressed how well they worked with each other to help everyone do their best.   Thank you parents for enabling your children to attend this educational visit.  I am also very grateful to Mr Jade and Miss Heeley for all your energy throughout each day and night to keep the children happy and safe.  Thanks also to Mrs Redwood for all the advance organsition and administration.
