Year 6 Colomendy – Thursday night

Year 6 Colomendy – Thursday night

The children have just enjoyed a great disco with lots of singing and dancing to end the day on a high. They have just settled into their rooms, worn out from the last day and a half’s activities. Tomorrow sees caving for all groups, amongst other activities, before we depart at approximately 1:30pm. A gallery will be uploaded to the website over the weekend, but a selection of group shots from the disco are below. We will be in touch with school on our journey home tomorrow to update on any time change in the scheduled return time of between 2:30 and 3pm. Don’t forget there is a macmillan afternoon tea event in school, so please feel free to go along whilst you wait for our return, or come along afterwards.

Year 6 Colomendy Update

Sorry for some lack of communication, signal is very hard to come by and there is limited time when staff can get access to the wifi (which is also quite temperamental!). We will keep updating Twitter and the school app when we can.

This morning the children took part in bushcraft shelter building, Jacobs’ ladder, fencing and the 3G swing. As I type, the children have just finished lunch and are off to their next activities, including problem-solving, balance beam and low-ropes. The children’s behaviour has been exemplary today, with another school complimenting our pupils on their good manners!

The disco is on tonight – I will try and get some time to upload more pictures afterwards.

Mr Garth.

Good morning from Colomendy

After an enormous breakfast all Year 6 children are ready for their first activity. Mr Garth will try and upload photographs later, follow us on Twitter @OliPrimary for the latest information.

Happy but damp in Colomendy!

The children arrived safely at Kingswood Colomendy, the wet weather hasn’t stopped them enjoying their first evening of activities. 

School Ambassador and Council Elections

Wednesday saw a tough day of campaigning by our potential school ambassadors, leaving lots of food for thought for the KS2 pupils going into election day on Thursday. In Friday’s golden assembly, it was announced that Gabriella and Reece were elected as School Ambassadors and all the staff would like to wish them the best of luck in their role.

Well done to all the pupils who put themselves forward during the elections.

Dan Carden MP Visits School!

Thank you to Dan Carden MP for visiting school this week, with our school governor Mr Byrne. Dan was fortunate enough to meet our Year 6 pupils running for school ambassador and got a sneak peak into their speeches which he was very impressed with!

Our New Playground Leaders!

Our new playground leaders have been trained and are ready to start their new roles on Monday. They are looking forward to teaching the children new games and helping the adults on the yard!


Lower Key Stage Two welcome meeting

Just a reminder that we have our welcome meeting on Thursday 14th September 2017 at 4.30pm in the LKS2 area. We look forward to seeing you there!
