Making IPad Games Using Gamepress

Swimming Success - a report by Emily Webb

Last Friday, Milly and I went to Easton Leisure Centre to represent St Josephs in a Bristol Swimming Gala.

It started at 1:30 and I swam front crawl, breast stroke, and I also swam a medley (which was fly, back, breast and front crawls). I came first in the front crawl and breast stroke and third in the medley.

Milly swam the back stroke, breast stroke and front crawl. She came first in the backstroke, second in breast stroke and fourth in the front crawl.

We had a great time and are very proud of our success.

Reception Celebrate Holi.

The festival of colours

Holi is the Hindu festival that welcomes the Spring and celebrates the new life and energy of the season. 

Holi is a colourful festival, with dancing, singing, and throwing of powder paint and coloured water.

Bonfires are lit and roasting grains, pop corn, coconut and chick peas are thrown on by Hindu families.

People of all ages go into the streets for fun and paint-throwing. Everyone gets involved - with no distinctions between ethnicity, class, age or gender.

Hindus have fun by smearing each other with paint and throwing coloured water at each other, all done in a spirit of celebration

Happy Holi!
