Space Music making
As part of our explorations about space, we have listened to Gustav Holst's 'Mars'. We liked the way he composed the music to make us think of Mars the Bringer of War and we had a go at composing our own planet music.

SPORTS DAY 2019
Mini Marathon 18 May
A huge 'Well Done' to all those children who ran so brilliantly in the Mini Marathon. Winterbourne Earls had prizes in every single category over the four races with every runner contributing to incredible results. Even though the teams were small, we had some quality performances.
Special congratulations go to three children who won their races- so 3 out of the 4 races were won by Winterbourne children which is amazing! These were incredible achievements particularly when there were over 300 runners in each race.
Art was first in the Under 9 Boys' race, Sophie H was first (as a Year 5 runner) in the Under 11 Girls' race and Isaac was first in the Under 11 Boys' race.
Next year join us for running club, perhaps then Parkrun and if you catch the running bug, perhaps think about joining Salisbury Athletics Club. We certainly have created a running culture in school which we are immensely proud of.

Laverstock Small Schools Games 29 March
Well done to all the teams who took part: Year 5/6 Football, Year 3/4 Football and Year 5/6 Netball. All played brilliantly on a very warm sunny day. Year 3/4 footballers played really well winning their pool and going through to the semi-finals. Unfortunately they lost 2-3 to Winterslow who went through to win overall.
Netballers played well as a team but didn't go through to the finals.
Year 5/6 Footballers, coached by Mr Drury-Smith and Mr Dorrington, played brilliantly, winning through to the final and won overall. They arrived back at school 2 hours later than expected as the games were delayed but with a big trophy and lots of smiles! This is the first time that Winterbourne Earls has won this tournament.in recent years and the boys played brilliantly.
