The Dragons have visited, loans have been issued, arguments over, the time for action has arrived. Will the fruits of our labour make a profit? Or will the companies fold? The crowds were bustling, anticipation rising, nerves fraying, fingernails bitten and pulses rising. The doors opened and eager shoppers stampeded into the Dragons Den Table Top Sale. There was barely time for the shopkeepers to draw a breath when the signs began appearing…..SOLD OUT, SOLD OUT, LAST FEW LEFT! The crowd died down, the clear up completed by weary businesses. Then the exciting part, the totalling of the takings. Loans were paid back, floats returned, and then the smiles of success began. A huge profit made by each and every company. In total £650 raised towards Primary College. Watch out Alan Sugar, we’re coming for you!

From September 2014, your child will be entitled to free school meals through the Government’s “Universal Infant Free School Meals” initiative for all children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 across the country.
The idea is to encourage children to eat school meals while making positive improvements to health, attainment and socialisation. And of course, helping families with the cost of living.
The company Chartwells will be responsible for providing our hot school meals.
This link will give you further information about the scheme, as well as copies of correspondence that is sent out.
If you have any queries, please contact the Infant School office on 01305 782470.
Our school choir have been working incredibly hard over the last few weeks rehearsing for their version of Mary Poppins. This week they have performed the show to packed houses and thrilled audiences with their wonderful singing, dancing and acting. They have all been stars and we expect to see some of them on the West End stage in a few years time!
The children learnt lots of new words like font, lectern, pulpit, altar, organ and Gravestone. Rev Deb told out about how Christians worship in the church on a Sunday. She even dressed a mum up as a Vicar.
It was all aboard the good ship Wyke, as members of Year 6 hit the high seas and had a tremendous sailing experience! The sun was beaming and the sea was smooth as they hitched in their sails and jibbed around Portland Harbour. There was plenty of work for the safety boats as “Capsize” and “Man over board” became the cry heard across the water. A truly fantastic time was had by all, and who knows, maybe the next generation of Olympic medallists took their first swim here.
Terror stuck in Year 6 this week as the forbidding members of Dragons Den arrived at school. Caged in the library, they entertained a succession of terrified children and staff presenting the opportunity of investing cold hard cash in their fledgling companies. Did they succeed? Did nerves get the better of them? Find out at the table top sale later in the term!
The children of Wyke Regis Junior School were lucky enough to enjoy a taster session of archery this week. All year groups experienced professional coaching from Mr Kingston. The children started with practise bow and arrows and soon progressed to the real thing. Who knows we might have discovered a future Olympian!
Year 6 Civic Awarders went camping last weekend to finish the final part of their award. For 6 months they have been completing weekly physical and non physical hobbies as well as a school and community public service. During this camp, pupils were in charge of and led the group in a team building activity. A lot of them were quite messy! Well done to these children who will be receiving their award from the Mayor in September.
50 Year 5 children had a brilliant time at the Dorset Music Service Mash-Up Festival yesterday. As well as taking part in some amazing workshops on beatboxing, performing arts and Caribbean music, they enjoyed performances on the main stage by RSVP, the Mini BSO, Dodgy, and the Black Sheep Barn Dance. The sun shone, the music played and everyone thoroughly enjoyed the experience.
Year 6 have been designing and building shelters on the school field, learning team-building and survival skills. They had to learn how to do lashing and what shape would make a solid construction. Working in groups, they had to transfer these skills to a real-life experience of being stranded on a desert island. The aim was to stay dry, as a powerful hose poured water over their constructions – suffice to say, many wet children returned to class afterwards!
