Fun at Farmborough primary Two Bath Rugby Community coaches, two primary school classes and their teacher, concocted a brilliant afternoon of fun. No-one wanted to go out into the rain, but once they were in the playing fields the sun came out, and it was thumbs up! Farmborough Primary School children were enjoying their third week of a five week programme called School of Tag. When I arrived, the girls and boys from years three and four, including Miss Roberts their teacher, were running around playing tag. Foundation Manager, Jimmy Deane, was assisting the community department and organised the boys and the girls into two separate teams - it was terrific to see them running about and shouting at the tops of their voices with the sheer determination to win. “It’s been brilliant,” said Miss Roberts, “we had Steve Middleton here last term, and Jimmy this. It’s always good, the children have loved it. We are doing the Tackling Numbers programme as well,” (this is a numeracy programme developed by Premiership Rugby). School of Tag is a five week tag rugby programme set up with The Bath Rugby Community Team in conjunction with the Bath and North East Somerset School Sport Partnership to deliver coaching in and around Bath. When the course is complete, Bath Rugby gives all participating children and their families the opportunity to attend a Bath Rugby match at the Rec, and the opportunity to take part in a half-time pitch parade.

Bugsy Malone The Year 6 pupils at High Littleton Primary School put on a fantastic performance of Bugsy Malone at the end of July. There was some great acting, singing and dancing and a few custard pies, water pistols and comedy cars as well! This was the culmination of a month’s hard work from all 22 pupils involved. The 100-strong audience laughed and cheered their way through the spectacle. Everyone was really proud; it was a great end to a very successful year.

Quad kids event High Littleton’s two athletics teams travelled to Westfield Primary School on Wednesday 27th June for the annual Quadkids event. This consists of four events: 75m sprint, 600m run, vortex howler throw and standing long jump. Despite the weather, they had managed several training sessions and the teams did themselves proud, with some great individual and team performances. The High Littleton A team finished as winners of the small schools event and qualified to take part in the County finals in Bristol, in which they finished 8th out of 16 teams, an excellent result.

St Marys in Bloom

Scouts’ family camp

St Marys Primary School in Writhlington received the ‘Outstanding’ award from The Royal Horticultural Society & South West in Bloom for the South West in Bloom competition and also a Gold in the winners category in the Bath in Bloom competition. The school children have been very busy with the help of governors, staff and the local community, planting, watering, weeding, nurturing and looking after all the various areas of the school grounds. All the hard work is clearly evident upon visiting the school with hanging baskets, planted tyres and miniature gardens. The children form teams to ensure the great work continues on the school grounds with the dinner ladies playing an important role supervising the watering teams, litter picking teams and also helping the children with their own allotments. The entire team are committed to raising standards and encouraging pupils to develop pride in themselves, their school and community.

Thirty families from 1st Midsomer Norton Scout Group attended a family camp and activity day at Tedbury, near Mells. On offer to almost all ages were shooting, orienteering, making bivouacs, firelighting and abseiling. On the Saturday night the families gathered round the camp fire for a barbecue, sing-song and a short business meeting. Janet Turner, District Commissioner, who was unable to be present, sent a personal message thanking all the adult leaders and supporters under Group Scout Leader Clare Spearman’s guidance for their valuable work with the youth of Midsomer Norton and for making local Scouting fun and adventurous during the past year. Photo: Sister and brother Ellie, a Rainbow aged 5, and Ben, a cub aged 8 after having each abseiled down a 60foot rock face near Mells.

Paulton In Bloom

Paralympics

Paulton Junior School have been awarded the top prize of ‘Overall Winner’ in the schools category in the Bath In Bloom competition. Four pupils representing the school gardening club visited the Guild Hall in Bath where the Bath In Bloom judges presented them with a magnificent trophy and a cheque for £200 which was donated by Bath University. There are currently 40 children in the Gardening Club who all worked very hard to achieve the award as well as 60 Year 3 pupils who all grew potatoes.

221 pupils from Paulton Junior School had the amazing opportunity to visit the Paralympics on the 7th September! It was an early start for the pupils, staff, governors and volunteers as they all left the school at 5am, six coaches pulled away from the school with the Olympic Village as their destination. The pupils watched several events; women’s long jump, men’s javelin, men’s wheelchair 200m heat and the men’s (blind) 100m heat. All the pupils completed assignments on their fantastic experience which are now proudly on display for all to see. A fantastic day was had by all and the coaches pulled back in to the school around 7pm... with some very tired passengers on-board.

Children at Peasedown St John Primary School sang their hearts out on 25th September when the recording studio from Pop stars Award Scheme was set up in their school hall. The children have recorded a CD of all the songs that have been significant to them during 2012 including Olympic songs and Jubilee songs. Each year group took their turn in front of the microphone and recorded their own songs. The CD’s will be available to buy from the school office from 1st November.

Olympic torch On Wednesday 18th September, the children of St John’s Primary School, Midsomer Norton, were given a rare opportunity: to view an Olympic torch. Many schools this year will have had similar experiences, however this was unique: this torch was from the Olympics held in London in 1948! The pupils were able to hold the torch and compared and contrasted it with that of the 2012 torch. The most incredible thing for the children to imagine was the fact that, back in 1948, the torchbearer had to run three miles with a torch that was a little heavier than those of today! For the pupils in Year 6 (pictured above), whose current topic is World War Two, it was amazing to think of our capital city hosting an Olympics just three years after the end of the War. All in all, it was a wonderful visit that provided all of the children with a real insight into our country’s recent history.

Fireworks “Remember remember the fifth of November Gunpowder, treason and plot. I see no reason, why gunpowder treason Should ever be forgot” Fireworks are fun but we must also remember they can be dangerous. If you are not going to an organised fireworks event this year and plan to see off fireworks at home, make sure that everyone knows all about how to stay safe. • Stand well back • Never go near a firework that has been lit, even if it hasn’t gone off as it could still explode • Never put fireworks in your pocket or throw them • Wear gloves when using sparklers and hold them at arms length away from you • Put used sparklers hot end down in to a bucket of sand or water • Keep pets indoors • Never throw used (or unused) fireworks on a bonfire • Never pick up a firework which may be left over, it may still be active

Farrington Golf & Country Club invites you to

The largest Firework Display & Halloween Disco in the Area Friday 2nd November 6.45pm

Did you know... • Bonfire night is over 400 years old! It dates back to 1605 when Guy Fawkes and a group of other men tried to blow up Parliament. • Guy Fawkes was not the leader of the Gunpowder Plot, it was actually a man called Robert Catesby. • There is an island to the North of Santa Cruz called Isla Guy Fawkes...nobody knows why it is called this....maybe he planned to escape there. • Fireworks were invented in China back in the 12th Century (AD 1100)! • A rocket can reach speeds of 150mph, however the shell can reach as high as 200 metres. • The worlds largest recorded firework display was held in Portugal in 2006 and it featured 66,326 fireworks! • At first fireworks were only orange and white, new colours were made in the middle ages by adding different salts. The hardest colour to create is blue • 90% of the worlds fireworks are made in China. • Three sparklers burning together generate the same heat as a blow-torch.

Make sure you enjoy this year’s firework displays but please remember to stay safe. Firework Display @ Radstock Town F.C. (Southfield Recreation Ground)

Pumpkin Seed Necklace This pumpkin seed necklace, made in Halloween colours, makes a great accessory for Halloween and perfect for a witch’s costume! Alternatively, paint in more autumnal colours.

You will need:

Pumpkin seeds (roasted) Paint (orange, black, white and green) Needle and thread (Kitchen foil to put seeds on while you paint them)

Instructions:

Paint your pumpkin seeds in orange, green, white and black. The easiest way to do this is to put them on kitchen foil so that they will not stick to anything while they dry. But it is a very messy job! When your seeds are dry, thread your needle with a length of thread long enough to go over your head with 3 or 4 inches to spare. Put your seeds a few at a time in a pile on newspaper or a thin sponge. One by one push the needle down through the seed - when you have pierced the seed safely, pick it up and pull it through the thread. When your thread is about two thirds filled, knot the ends together tightly. Note: you need a sharp needle for this so make sure children are well supervised or that an adult does the threading.

Halloween Candle Jars These candle jars are simple and great fun to make, and a very effective Halloween decoration. But an adult will need to supervise everything to do with the candle - including, of course, lighting it!

You will need:

Jars of all shapes and sizes and appropriate candles to fit them Tissue paper - orange, white, purple or black Black construction paper Glue Scissors Black felt tip marker

Instructions:

You can get very creative making your Halloween candle jars, and we are sure you will come up with many different ideas. Basically you wrap the jar in a piece of tissue paper, insert the candle and light it! You create the effect you want either by cutting out pieces of the tissue paper, or by sticking extra pieces of paper on, or just by drawing your design with black felt tip marker.


Pumpkin Bag This cute little pumpkin bag is simply made with felt and ribbon, but it is good sewing practise for beginners. Use it for storing your Halloween treats or perhaps for giving a Halloween gift.

You will need:

Orange felt Black felt Black embroidery thread Green ribbon

Instructions:

Lay the pieces of orange felt on top of one another. Cut away two of the corners in a curve. Cut face pieces from black felt and sew them (or stick them) to one of orange pieces. Use blanket stitch to sew the two pieces of orange felt together. Leave the straight edge open. About 1/2 inch in from the top of the bag carefully snip small vertical holes, leaving about 1inch between them, all the way around the bag. Starting in the front of the face, thread the ribbon through the slits (a darning needle to push the ends through will help). Pulling and tying the ribbon as a drawstring will make the pumpkin round.

Wreck-It Ralph

Dino Time Release Date: December 7, 2012

Release Date: November 2, 2012

There’s nothing Ernie loves more than an excellent adventure, whether its zooming around town on his rocket-powered skateboard or stealing an early peek at the coolest new fossil exhibit at the Dinosaur Museum. Its not always easy under the strict rules of his mum, especially with his sister Julia following him around and trying to get him in trouble every chance she gets but he still manages to stir up fun. Ernie’s daredevil nature takes him on a journey one day with potentially irreversible consequences. After sneaking over to his best friend Max’s, Ernie discovers Max’s dad’s latest invention: a sleek, egg-shaped time machine. Suddenly, Julia bursts in to bust the two boys, and in the ensuing chaos, the time machine comes to life and closes its doors on the three kids arguing. The kids find themselves in a lush jungle untouched by mankind with a living, breathing T-Rex named Tyra standing over them. But they’re not dinosaur food...the time machine has landed them in Tyra’s nest and she believes the children are hers. Ernie and the other children have to figure out how to get home, what with the time machine having lost a vital component in its crash landing!

The film follows an arcade game Bad Guy, Wreck It Ralph who is determined to prove that he can be a good Guy.

But Ralph soon wrecks everything and accidentally unleashes a deadly enemy that threatens every game in the arcade his only hope to save the entire arcade is to team up with the young troublemaking ‘glitch’ from a cart racing game who might just be able to teach Ralph what it really means to be a Good Guy.

Kids love any excuse to play party games - and so they should!. Even if you are not having your own Halloween party, perhaps you can get a group of friends around to dress up and play some Halloween party games? And if you are having a Halloween party, there are some great ideas here for you!

Mummy Wrap Mummy Wrap is a fun Halloween party game for children of all ages. Buy some cheap rolls or toilet paper and perhaps some crepe paper streamers in Halloween colours. Split the kids up into teams of two. One child will be the “mummy” and the other is in charge of wrapping up the child like a mummy... When you start playing the music the teams can start wrapping up the When you turn the music off the kids need to stop. The team whose mummy is more mummified (or wrapped) wins. Older children can have even more fun if you turn the lights right down when you turn the music on - it makes it much harder and they will get the giggles!

Ghost Busters

Halloween Graveyard Hunt Decorate your garden to resemble a scary graveyard or just add lots of scary things. You can add cut out black felt bats, plastic spiders, fake web, fake tombstone, jack o lanterns and even provide scary music... Hide prizes and treats amongst the plants and decorations and let the kids go on a graveyard hunt. For older kids you can even have a disguised adult or two hiding around a spooky corner, but please don’t do this with younger children as it can really traumatise them!

They then get a turn to hide the ghosts. Variations: An adult hides all the ghosts and the children compete with each other to find them. Add a forfeit to the back of one or two ghosts (without necessarily telling the children!) Whoever finds those ghosts must do the forfeit before the next round of the game. Add a bonus prize to the back of one or two of the ghosts instead!

Maintain your ride! To ensure your scooter or skate board lasts, you need to make sure you maintain it. Your bearings are the inner part of the wheels which enables a smooth ride and they need to be checked to get the most from your board or scooter. Now before you test your bearings, you want to make sure the problem isn’t dirt. Make sure all your bearings are clean, and if they’re all clean, you’re ready to test your bearings and see if there’s a problem. On a skateboard the best way to do a bearing test is the wheel roll. To do this, roll all your wheels at the

same time. If one wheel stops rolling before any of the others, you know that bearing is probably ready to be replaced. On a scooter, the easiest way to test the bearing is to remove the wheel and spin the wheel in your fingers. If the wheel feels clunky or makes a grinding noise it is possible the bearings will need to be replaced. To make sure your scooter is safe to ride always check the wheels bolts are tight as well as the bolts on the clamp, this will stop the bars from moving. The headset also needs to be tightened and any other bolts or clamps on your scooter.


Customise your ride! There are many different types of skateboards and scooters available, and customizing your ride will ensure your board or scooter stands out from the rest. Grip tape can be changed and is the adhesive backed, gritty covering that lies on the top of the skateboard or deck. Similar to sandpaper, it helps your shoes grip to your deck. Because the grip tape sits on the top of your skateboard, this is a very noticeable way to make your skateboard look different from the standard designs. Wheels, clamps, bars and grips come in every colour you could think of and are easy to change to enable you to have a unique look to your ride!

PETS R E N COR My name is Harold and I am a Guinea Pig,

Hello, my name is Harold

I live with my family and love being cuddled and looked after. I am very active and I love to run around and enjoy my large hutch which gives me a chance to stretch out and enables me to stand up on my back legs, which I love to do. My owners always clean out by bed and give me lots of clean hay so I can snuggle up and keep warm at night. I am a grazer and so I like to eat grass, herbs and some plants. I love dandelions and I like to munch for long periods of time and having fresh water every day is very important to me. I love having friends to play with so I share my home with Duncan, Joel and Peter. We enjoy each other’s company and love to run around together. We have several pipes in our hutch and we enjoy burrowing into these too. When my owner handles me they are always very gentle and this makes me very happy. I enjoy being petted and cuddled if it is soft and gentle. I hope you have enjoyed finding out about me.
