Court Fields School held the inaugural inter-house team maths challenge on Friday 27th June. There were four rounds in the competition culminating in the relay round.

Each team was made up of one student from each year group and 48 students took part.
Organiser Mr Kilshaw, said “he was delighted with the success of the event and that it would definitely become an annual fixture in the Court Fields calendar”
Court Fields Duke of Edinburgh teams were out on Exmoor for their bronze expedition at the weekend. It was really hot when we set off and stayed that way all weekend, although the temperatures did drop a little over night.

On Wednesday 18th June just under 320 primary school students from Beech Grove, Langford Budville, Rockwell Green, Sampford Arundel, St. Johns, Wellesley Park and West Buckland joined the Court Fields School choir for The Big Sing. Students have been rehearsing with their teachers since April in order to learn all the songs for the morning and it was with great excitement that we all gathered in the Sports Hall at Court Fields for the climax of all the preparations.
Work had begun back in April when the primary school music coordinators met at Court Fields School to be taught the songs and techniques by Kirtsen Wordley from Somerset Music. Workshops were held in each school in the ensuing weeks and then we all gathered for the Big Sing on Friday 20th June. Parents and staff formed the audience and were treated to the sound of over 350 children’s voices singing a variety of music ranging from Native American Chants to All Together Now by The Farm. A highlight was the solo verses sung by the Court Fields Choir.
A group of students from Court Fields have been attending the Sorrell Saturday Art Club at Somerset College. The Sorrell Foundation was set up in 1999 with the aim of inspiring creativity in young people and improving the quality of life through good design. The Saturday club aims to encourage creativity and careers in art and design and many club members go on to take a further education diploma, foundation or undergraduate courses in the arts.
The Court Fields students recently visited Somerset House in London to view an exhibition of their work and while there they were presented with certificates by Sir John and Lady Frances Sorrell.
Students: Josanna, Eliz, Ellie, Charley, Charlotte, Emily, Amber, Charlotte, Claire, Josie and Georgia
Last Friday, 29 gifted and talented Yr4 students from the local primary schools landed at Court Fields to take part in our annual Astronomy Day. During the day they learned all about the moon, viewed it through a telescope, and made some moon landers and a sundial. They then all became a huge human solar system, including asteroids and comets, which was so much fun we had to do it twice. After lunch they plotted out some star constellations on the inside of black umbrellas representing the night sky in June and then we all went out onto the playing field and launched two impressive rockets with a parachute recovery system to finish the day off with a bang!
