Summer Fair at St Ives

The soggy weather couldn't dampen our spirits at our fantastic annual Summer Fair! Everyone had a wonderful time. Thank you so much to the Friends of St Ives (FOSI) for all their hard work, all the stall holders who came long and all the visitors who braved the weather.

Market Day at St Ives

Well done Year 6 on your wonderful stalls at Market Day. It's clear you put a huge amount of work into planning your stalls, from your products, presentation, merchandising, branding, promotion and customer service. Let's hope you've raised lots of money for your charities.

Raising Money for the Book Trust on Pyjamarama Day

Hoorah for being allowed to wear pyjamas to school today to show support for Pyjamarama and raise money for the Booktrust to ensure every child has access to books and can enjoy stories as much as we do. A wonderful morning of story telling, book swapping and fund raising.

St Ives School Is Swimming Its Way to the IAPS and ESSA National Swimming Finals

 

Swimming Captains Emily and Emma have qualified as individuals in the U11 50m and 25m Butterfly respectively.  This is an incredible achievement, with only the top twenty out of more than one hundred and fifty swimmers nationally, qualifying.  Our relay team has also qualified as one of the top small schools’ team, nationally.  The relay team is made up of Emma, Emily, Ella, Annabel, Poppy, Imogen, Livvy, Grace and Tamara.

 

In addition to this, our Year 6 swimmers recently qualified for the National Finals of the English Schools Swimming Association (ESSA) Primary Schools Relays to be held in Sheffield in June.  Having come third in the South East Regionals, and taking two seconds off their qualifying time, these girls rightly deserve their place in the finals. 

 

Kay Goldsworthy, Head Teacher, said “I am so proud of the whole team for working so hard.  This result is phenomenal.  We wish them all the best of luck for the finals in June”.

Pupils at St Ives School in Haslemere have been enjoying a three-day Wizard of Oz Themed Maths Festival this week.

 

The festival started with an opening assembly with all the children arriving at school dressed up as their favourite Wizard of Oz character.  Everyone made a huge effort and there were so many variations on the Dorothies, the Lions, the Scarecrows, the Tin Men as well as Wicked Witches of the West!

For the next three days the children were tasked with various maths themed activities from a ruby slippers investigation, to junk modelling, to an inter-house Maths quiz, to learning how to play bridge, to a speed stacking challenge, as well as a baking extravaganza where the children had to design, bake, decorate and design packaging for Wizard of Oz themed biscuits.

The children also brought in their favourite board games for everyone to enjoy and were then set the challenge of creating a new board game which they had to present at a closing assembly.  All the pupils benefitted from three days of full Maths immersion.   

Kay Goldsworthy, Head Teacher at St Ives, said “Our first Maths Festival has been a huge success.  It has allowed us to really bring Maths to life and show the pupils how important it is in our daily lives and not just in the classroom.”
