Team Friars where at the Borough Sports on 19th June where we had great performances from many of our athletes. The team were very successful in the javelin with several of our athletes finishing in the top 3 positions. There was a terrific team support seen with pupils cheering and supporting each other, showing the true meaning of the Olympic Values.
Once again we were extremely proud of the children who represented Friars at the SEESMA Music Festival. They looked very smart and were well mannered throughout. It was a pleasure to see what a great team they were and how they helped each other. They sang beautifully and the band was fantastic, not relying on the backing but all coming together in a lovely sound where the tunes were clear. Well done to all the children and, of course, Mrs Rollingson leading the way!
On 7th of June 2018 I went to Robin Hill Isle Of Wight. When we arrived many other schools were there. First we went to the The Colossus [ a huge ride boat which swung back and forth really high ]which most of us loved . The others either had motion sickness or were scared. After that we started a long walk to a towering bridge. I ran across it . At the end there was a ramp that slowly descended to the ground . From there on we walked until we got to the park . It was massive
On the 8th of June (my birthday) we went to Adventure Island. The first half was the least exciting part of the park, the rides aren’t as fun (or atleast my brother wasn’t there to give me food.) The time machine was fun, as were the waterslides, but the rest was just ‘alright’. After the water slides we had lunch at the ‘Old Chippy’. I had sausage and chips with ketchup, I don’t like salt and vinegar, which was delicious! Next, we walked to the entrance of the second half o

On the 4th of June 2018 me and the rest of Year 6 (that didn’t go to the Isle of Wight) went to visit the RNLI Lifeboat Station. When we came into school we continued writing our letters to Sophie and Crystal for letting us have a meal at their Toby Carvery. After 20 minutes Mrs Dyer asked Mrs Monk and Mrs Lowry’s group if they needed to go to the toilet then they journeyed onto the mini-bus –which was driven by Mr Telling. After, Mr Telling’s group and Mrs Dyer’s group did t
We would like to share this lovely email of feedback from a parent following the Borough sports on Tuesday. I would just like to say how proud I was to be a parent from this school yesterday at the Borough Sports. A young man in year 3 was running the 400m. He started off well and on the last stretch he was quite a way back from the other runners. You could see that he was struggling. It was on this last stretch that another young man came along side him and ran the last f

It was a very exciting week for these 5 children who represented Friars at the very first Portico spelling bee. With each school hosting one of the finals, the action was intense and the competition fierce as these intrepid spellers bravely battled against the other schools in the Portico academy, to spell some of the toughest words known to children! We are very proud to report that we came second in the year 3 and 4 finals and we won the year 2, 5 and 6 finals to be the ov
