Oak Winners

This week we celebrated some very worthy winners in Oak Class.

Ava was selected as the player of the tournament at a recent girls under 11's cricket festival in Bristol, where she represented Dumbleton Cricket Club. This was a huge accolade as there were many girls taking part in the competition. She received a very impressive trophy, a replica of the Ashes trophy, in a super presentation box which was signed by some famous England players. She hit 2 sixes and took 3 wickets in 1 over!! Impressive!!

We had a visit from the STEM team who gave the Year 4 and 5 children an introduction to engineering and design. Their challenge was to make a robotic arm which would sort out different materials in a recycling plant. They had very strict criteria to stick to and a time limit to complete the challenge in too. There were lots of fabulous models but the ultimate winners were Josh and Freddy in Year 5, who will be entered into the regional finals for Primary School STEM workshops. They recorded a video explaining how it worked, what went well, how they worked as a team and what they would do differently. Fingers crossed they do well in the next stage too.
