Footballer  Footballl:

U9s Football vs Grangemount   2-2
The game took place on a large pitch which was very soft. The team played some very good football and certainly deserved their draw. They were unfortunate not to win as they created the most chances to score.

Ryan was good in goal when called upon.  Some outstanding performances from Cholan, George and Alec as they covered a lot of ground during the match.

Final score 2-2 with both goals from Alec S.

 Polar BearToday, Mrs Bruce read a story called The Snow Bear. This was all about the polar bear and how polar bears live and survive in the very cold conditions. We spoke about the indigenous people of the arctic – the Inuit and their name for polar bears; Nanuk (or Nanook). We learned about polar bears’ fur and how their fat keeps them warm and that they look after their babies until the babies are around 2 years old.


Mrs Bruce has put the book in the Lovell library for all to share or borrow.
