16.5.22 Last week at Southmead
Eco Reps The KS2 Class Eco Reps were out re-wilding and increasing biodiversity last Wednesday afternoon. This month school received 100 seed balls from the BBC Green Planet initiative. Each clay and chilly powder ball contained approximately 30 wildflower seeds. The children carefully spaced them out on the cleared ground around the new forest school circle, next to the allotment. After watering each ball into a nice soggy puddle, the children helped to top up the new pond, which is wiggling with tadpoles. Well done team! (Donations of pond plants would be gratefully received.) We are currently 1 point of our Sliver Award!!

10.3.22 - Year 5/6 North Devon Netball Finals
As a result of qualifying from the Braunton Learning Co-operative Trust’s Year 5/6 netball competition last month, a team of seven amazing netballers represented Southmead at the North Devon finals, held at The Park Community School.
All of their group games were very competitively fought, resulting in some very close matches. With the team members rotating around the different playing positions, all the players worked brilliantly as a team and scored some tremendous goals between them. Despite not achieving the results they were hoping for against three of the schools, their perseverance was incredible and they displayed fantastic sportsmanship towards all their opponents.
Although they didn’t qualify for the semi-finals, after lunch the team had the opportunity to play for a top ten place against Torrington Primary School. Their determination was evident from the outset and having learnt from their group games, they displayed excellent teamwork, winning the match 6-1.
What a brilliant way to finish the day! You should all be very proud of yourselves.
