County Cross Country Team

Congratulations to the children who have been selected to represent Tewkesbury in the Gloucestershire Primary Schools’ Cross Country Championships.

The children have ran some brilliant times in each cross country event, here in Tewkesbury. Now it is their time to show off their skills at St Edwards Preparatory School on Saturday 2nd March. Good luck to all runners!

Tewkesbury Champions!

The past few weeks have seen some brilliant football skills being played.

Last week Years 5 and 6 saw victory at the Tewkesbury Football League tournament for the 2nd year in a row. During these matches they conceded no goals! A brilliant performance!

This week has seen similar success as our Year 4 team took part in their respective Football League tournament. The beginning of the day saw us in fourth place, however, the boys showed some fantastic ball skills and won every match! Due to these wins, it meant that we ended up with the overall high score and thus the Tournament Champions!

Well done to all those in Year 4, 5 and 6!

Look who came to visit!

Year 2 had a very special visitor this term. Paddington Bear dropped in on his way to London and he made quite a mess in the Year 2 classrooms.

He asked the children to help him to find his way to London and also to make some more marmalade sandwiches for him, as he had run out!

The children then wrote back to him as a class with everything they had found out and even got to taste some yummy sandwiches.

He’s now in London and we’re hopeful for a postcard soon.


Welcome to our school Paddington.


What a mess Paddington and you’ve left marmalade on the door handles!


I hope you find a book you like – I love the David Williams books myself!


I hope you’re enjoying our letters and the yummy marmalade sandwiches we made.


Don’t leave any crumbs Paddington!


Thank you for visiting us Paddington. Come back again soon.

Boy’s football victory

Last week our Year 5 & 6 boy’s football team once again led the school to victory in the Large schools football league tournament. The trophy has been won by the school for the second consecutive year.

Our Cross country team are also doing well but we won’t know the final results until a couple of weeks.

The Year 5 children have spent a day at Tewkesbury High School to experience the facilities, lessons and lunches. They spent time in the Science Laboratory, Geography, ICT Food Technology and PE. All the children thoroughly enjoyed the experience and we are grateful to the High school for organising such a great day.

Over the last couple of weeks the Year 6 children have been out and about on their bikes achieving their cycling proficiency test.

Our Reception classes welcomed the parents back into class to learn alongside their children in ‘Stay and Play’.

Website Facebook and twitter

Our website is having a facelift and we will be going live with this in two weeks. We have been listening to parents to make it more ‘User friendly’ and we have listened to the children to include more of the fun things that they are doing at school.

In addition to emails, texting and the website we will be launching our own Facebook page and Twitter page. This is to improve communication between the school and its community.

World book day 7th March

This year the children will be dressing up in their favourite book character and having a day of exciting activities. Parents like the advanced notice so that they can start making outfit or hitting the online bargains.

Book Fair

Monday 11th March through to Wednesday 13th March there will be a book fair after school in the school hall.

Holiday requests

Please do not apply to take your children out of school during term time for a holiday. I cannot authorise absence for holidays. The government attendance target for each child is 96%. Authorised absence can only be for religious observations, family emergency
