News
It has been a very busy week for all of the children . We started on Monday by seeing off the Year 4 children to their Pioneer residential in Shropshire. They had three glorious days of weather and were able to make the most of the activities available that included raft building, caving, campfire sing alongs, high wire and abseiling. The children were an absolute credit to us and their parents as staff were complimented on their behaviour and in particular – team spirit on encouraging one another to have a go and then celebrated when small mile stones were achieved.
KS1 SATs
Our Year 2 children are coming to an end of two weeks of statutory assessments and this afternoon Mr Rylatt and Miss Armstrong celebrated with them by having a picnic on the field. Again every child tried their best and really enjoyed going to our new Community Centre with Mr Rylatt and Miss Armstrong for their assessments.
During Wednesday afternoon we held our first Children’s Party Fayre in the Community Centre. There were many entertainers exhibiting along with the schools catering team. If you were unable to attended don’t dismay as will be holding another event very soon. If you are interested in hiring the rooms for a social/business event details can be obtained from the school office, website or facebook page.
Year 6
On Wednesday 7th June our Year 6 pupils have been invited to join with other year 6 pupils from around the county in a special leavers service at Gloucester Cathedral. This is only for the children and it is in addition to the service held at Tewkesbury Abbey. The Abbey service is on Wednesday 19th July at 2.00pm and parents and families of the Year 6 children are invited to join us.
Hot Weather
Can I remind parents that on the rare occasion that we have very hot weather forcasted that the children bring a sunhat to school and that suncream is applied at home. If you feel that your child would need a further application during the day you are welcome to come into school and apply or your child can bring the cream into school and apply it themselves.
