Rabbit awards this week were awarded to Tavish Gangwani (Year 6) and for a first time ever, the joint boys and girls rabbit was awarded to Year 6. On the Field trip to Osmington Bay, Tavish very selflessly and bravely helped out a family who were not part of the CC group when they found themselves in difficulty in Dorset. As mentioned in my Heads Words, Year 6 boys and girls were outstanding on their outdoor studies visit and thoroughly deserve this accolade. Well done!

News from the Chess Master
The PTA Chess Festival on Saturday 11 November will soon be upon us! With half term seeing us away for two weeks it leaves us with only one week of school before the tournament. Here is the entry form, we would like to see a really good showing from Claires Court pupils. Have a great half term and keep playing (and studying) chess.
News from the Sports Master
This has been a quieter week than normal with all of Year 6 away on a Geography and Science field studies trip at Osmington Bay, they have also enjoyed outward bound experiences such as abseiling, orienteering, problem solving and archery. While we have been away the U9s traveled to St John's Beaumont on Tuesday. All teams played particularly well with the A, C & D teams recording fantastic wins to take them into the half term break. The U10 teams will have fixtures this Friday against the tough opposition of The Beacon. We wish them the best of luck in theses matches. The Year 3 pupils will be introduced to contact rugby after half term. They should have now all brought home a letter stating the need for a gum shield. Please can parents please ensure all Year 3 pupils bring a moulded gum shield with them to all Games lessons after half term.
