Wellington Maths Challenge 2017

Four intrepid maths challengers travelled to Wellington School on Saturday to represent our federation. Two children from each school arrived bright and early to take on some really tough questions, cheered on by their families. The challenge is an annual event (by invitation) and this year forty schools took part from as far as North Somerset and Cornwall. Both private and state schools competed. Seth and Emily represented Bish Nym whilst Charlotte and Lily flew the colours for East Anstey. I am delighted to report that our joint team members were a real credit to their schools and performed really well earning a very creditable score of 13 (the third placed team achieved 19 with 21 winning the challenge). Well done and thanks to the team members and their families.

Shakespeare Rocks DVDs

Hello all

As you will know, we had aimed to have the DVDs of our excellent Summer production – Shakespeare Rocks! ready for September. Unfortunately we have been significantly delayed by a number of technical issues during the production process. Many apologies for this, however, I am now able to confirm that the DVD of Shakespeare Rocks will be available from Monday 30th October for full release. This means that if you have already put down a deposit or expressed interest / reserved a DVD, your copy will be available from the office straight after half term (balance will be payable upon receipt as appropriate). Apologies once again for the production delay.

If you would like a DVD but have not yet reserved one; or you would like additional copies, new orders can now be taken (with a very short production time).

Do also watch out later this term for some other exciting releases before Christmas.

Best wishes

Exmoor Challenge Practice 2

Twenty two of us once again braved the elements but also the beautiful open moor on Saturday. Conditions started bright but ended wet as we made our way from Dulverton.

We finally raced (quite literally in some cases) across the open moor to our finish at Anstey (Molland Moor) gate. Over eight miles completed and we were even joined by friends from other schools. Well done everyone. Team selections next! 😃

Exmoor Challenge Practice 1

Twenty intrepid souls braved some pretty challenging conditions yesterday (18th) for our first prep walk. The six miles, along the Barle and Dane’s Brook rivers, were really heavy going but our team was brilliant.

Spirits were high as we made our way to our pick up (in pretty good time). Thanks for those that walked with us, came to collect and of course to Graham for technical back up. Looking forward to the next session on 1st April.

Covent garden was next to explore and Pizza Express was our dinnertime venue.  We looked at Leicester Square and Chinatown before arriving safely at our Hostel.
