Reception Christmas Performance
Well done to all the children in the Reception Classes for their wonderful Nativity performance. The children worked extremely hard in preparation and put on a brilliant production. We were so impressed with the Oak and Ash children who performed with such confidence, beautiful singing and clear speaking voices. We hope the parents enjoyed the performance just as much as we did.
Fynamore Christmas Fayre
Friday, 6 December was the Fynamore Christmas Fayre! It was organised by FoFSA, the school staff and Year 6 children volunteers. There were lots of exciting stalls including chocolate and bottle tombolas, cakes and craft making! Thank you to everyone who helped out and all those who came along. We received some fantastic donations from parents, and nearly everyone came to school in non-uniform earlier in the week, in return for bringing a tombola donation in with them. Thank you also to everyone who sold raffle tickets for us. We raised £1951 for the school. Thank you everyone!
Father Christmas visited us in December. We feel very lucky that he was able to come and see us. The children had to write persuasive letters to the Governors to ask them to allow all the Christmas events to continue. The Governors were worried about staff workload but were so impressed with all the letters, they changed their minds and Father Christmas visited Fynamore!!
Father Christmas was guided around school by Mrs Zenonos and he gave presents to each class. We are grateful to everyone who has helped raise money for the school because you have ensured that every class has now received a lovely new gift.
Calne Christmas Lantern Parade
Fynamore School took part in the Calne Lantern Parade again this year. Parents and children made over 35 lanterns in workshops in school. We would like to say a big thank you to all the parents and children who attended the parade, for their part in representing our school.
Year 4 Trip to the Roman Baths in Bath
Year 4 had a great trip to the Roman Baths in Bath. An education teacher from the Baths showed the children how to put on a toga, how to write on a Roman tablet and also showed them many of the Roman artifacts dating from 2000 years ago. The children saw the hot spring that was 44 degrees and the main bath, which was 5 foot deep, and was 33 degrees. Everyone had a good day out and learned some amazing Roman facts!
Three children went with Mrs King to represent the school at the Remembrance Service at St Mary's Church in Calne. The Fynamore children were a credit to the school.
Pencelli - Year 6 Residential Trip
The Year 6s had an amazing adventure in Pencilli in September. They spent a week in Wales and learned to climb, canoe, cave, as well as many other exciting (and wet) activities. We are already looking forward to next year!
Year 4 Folly Farm Residential Trip
Year 4 have been on their residential trip at Folly Farm, near Bristol, this month. Each class went for 3 days, with the middle day overlapping. They began their visits with a lovely afternoon exploring their environment and having a walk into the woods. The children really enjoyed exploring the outdoors and getting used to the filming equipment. The next day they planned and made their wildlife films, and held the ‘premier’ viewings in the evening. Everyone had a great time away from the classroom. You can see the video which Lime class made by clicking below:
Year 1 Tag Rugby Tournament
The Year 1 children had great fun at their Tag Rugby Tournament last week. They were able to use all the skills they have learnt over the past term. It was great to see the children working as a team and showing good sportsmanship.
Year 6 Star Gazing Event
Many of the Year 6 children came back into school one evening to attend a star gazing event. Unfortunately, it was too cloudy to get the telescopes out, so instead Paul Hill from Sirius Astronomy took the Year 6 children on an entertaining and fascinating evening into space and back again. They learnt about our galaxy the Milky Way, lit some rocket fuel, learnt about life on the ISS, the importance of spacesuits and how astronauts are returned safely to Earth.
Year 6 Science Event
As part of British Science Week, Year 6 attended a lecture at St. Mary’s School in Calne, entitled 'Comets: dirty snowballs and rubber ducks'. We learnt all about the history of the Universe, the ancient superstitions surrounding comets, where they come from and even watched one being made in front of our eyes! Thank you to the St. Mary’s staff for a super afternoon.
Year 6 Football County Finals!
