Eco Warriors today went to Rand Farm to choose two new members of our School Family – Cinders and Tilly. If we look after them well, they will reward us with eggs.
So, recently SOC (Scampton Outdoor Challenge) has had its first triathlon!!! The triathlon was hard but is it was all worth it. At the end everyone got an ICE CREAM. The events we did were: 1 mile run, 20 min swim and 3 mile bike ride. When we crossed the finish line we overcame with triumph!!!! It was a great achievement. None of us had ever done a triathlon. We all in enjoyed the BBQ after. Out of the three events the bike riding was my struggle. The easiest was the swim.
Today, Scampton played host to over seventy Reception pupils from across the Partnership for a teddy bears’ picnic. Our afternoon was filled with activities across our beautiful site. In the Enchanted Forest we made clay owls, we had a Bear Hunt through our woodland meadow, past the pond and into the woods, we made bear cards on the playground and played games with our Sports Coach on the field. Great afternoon!
Our Lincolnshire Show Schools’ Challenge project this year is ‘farming through the ages’. To demonstrate these changes in the local area we have written a film that includes much factual information weaved into a story of four generations of a Lincolnshire farming family – ‘The Tinks’.
Today we shot some scenes for the film using sets at the Lincolnshire Life Museum. Dressed appropriately, children took the roles of actors, cameramen and directors. Can’t wait to see the finished film.
A hot day on the school field was the setting for another great Sports Day! The day began with an assembly led by Ash Randall, Word Record holding Football Freestyler who showed us many tricks and explained his perseverance to achieve the skills he has. He then worked with everyone through the morning to teach everyone some tricks to try themselves. Mr Hebborn spent the day on an exercise bike for his Scampton Outdoor Challenge, donning some fancy dress when his collection went over £50! Donations on the day raised £184 for the fund.
Morning events were team based, everyone competing together to earn points for their team. Afternoon events were individual sports ranging from a tennis tournament to distance races.
Sprint races concluded a great day of action. Well done St. Luke House Team for first place (by a point).
Valiant efforts by both Year 3/4 and 5/6 teams on Thursday at the annual Sturton Football Tournament. Hard fought matches against other partnership schools resulted in a second place for our Year 5/6 squad and a fifth place for our Year 3/4 squad.
Well done to Alex and Ollie who stepped in to squads of older players.
At the request of Giles, Olivia and Jake who had their last day with us on Friday, we had an assembly in the woods. Great to be together in a beautiful place.
Well done Thomas on completing your Scampton Outdoor Challenge – the 33 mile Lincoln Cycle sportive. He completed it in 2 hrs 42 mins.
