The whole of Year 4 went to The Misbourne yesterday to take part in a football tournament. For lots of the children, it was their first experience of competitive sport. They played extremely well and lots of new talent was unearthed! The children behaved brilliantly and all received a certificate for their efforts. Well done Year 4
Great Missenden School has the best Science Quiz team in the country! They won the national final at The Museum of Natural History in Oxford last week. Teams from York and South Wales battled against them but we ended up victorious with a score of 2200. They were incredibly knowledge about all areas of Science. Well done, team. You have made your school very proud indeed!
Great Missenden celebrated World Book Day in style this year. We saw a wide variety of characters from Roald Dahl classics to p.278 from the Argos catalogue! The children swapped teachers for the afternoon and shared their favourite books. It was amazing to see so many children enthralled by books.
Jungle Jo came to see Year 4 last week. She brought tarantulas, pythons and other rainforest critters. The children learned lots of new facts and were very brave holding the creatures.
On Tuesday, four children from Year 3 and 4 took part in a 'Bisi Badminton' tournament. There were 9 stations to complete, involving a rally, shuttlecock sprints and wall jumps. The children were absolutely brilliant and managed to win the tournament. They have now qualified for the School Games in the Summer. Well done!
