U13 Girls Rounders at Hillcrest

On Saturday 10th November, four of our BMIS girls took part in the Hillcrest U11 Rounders Tournament. We flew on Friday afternoon and stayed in the BGE boarding house overnight, enjoying a movie night before bed.

Our first match was against Brookhouse, which we lost 3 : 8. Our second match against Hillcrest, we won 4.5 : 4! Our third match was against Pembroke and we lost again, a whopping 12.5 : 2.5! Our fourth match was against The Banda, which we lost 2 : 8. Overall, we would have come 7th out of the 10 teams playing, which we felt really proud of. At the quarter finals, we played Greensteads and won 6 : 4- such a fun game.

Year 2 Trip to The Beach

Year 2 had a wonderful trip last week when we all went to the beach for the day.

The weather was hot, but despite the heat, the children ran around exploring the plentiful rock pools, the marvellous mangroves, the soft sand and the shiny sea.

As part of our Literacy, we described the setting we were in, thinking carefully about what we could see, hear, touch, smell, taste and feel.
