News
This week has been very busy with the children getting stuck into their new summer term themes.
Reception classes and Year 3 had a visit from Bristol Zoo with some of their animals. The children got close up and personal with snakes and spiders.
Year 3 held a cake sale in the hall on Wednesday and raised £307.12 in aid of the Orangutan Foundation and The Air Ambulance. Well done Year 3 and thank you for your donations.
Year 4 are excitedly putting together the final touches for their residential trip, next week, to the Pioneer Centre.
Year 6 classrooms became ‘Bedrock City’ as they launched their theme day dressed as Cavemen and women. Most were delighted not to have to brush their hair for school.
With our school wide focused value of Community, Miss Armstrong has developed a link with a deprived school in Madagascar. As a result, we have been able to send some of the schools surplus books to the children there. They were extremely grateful and have been able to communicate their thanks to us for our donation and support. See our school website news page for further details.
Our Year 6 pupils were recently treated to a wonderful performance by the Watoto African Children’s Choir at our local Holy Trinity Church. Joining with other children from schools all around Tewkesbury, the children were dazzled by the high quality singing and dancing, as well as having the opportunity to join in. Congratulations to Harriet Gilder, who even won a prize for her dancing skills
