Year 5’s Great Greek Experience!

Last Wednesday, Year 5 pupils at Tewkesbury C of E Primary school were visited by an actor from the company ‘Portals to the Past’ who helped bring their ‘It’s all Greek to me’ Theme to life. Once the pupils arrived, they were whisked into the hall – and 3000 years into the past –  to be greeted by a Greek soldier, who promptly set them a series of challenges which supported pupils learning and quenched their thirst for knowledge of ancient Greece. Year 5 were given the opportunity to wield sword and shield, play greek games, take part in a greek quiz and battle reenactment!

As reigning champions, the bar was set high for the boys entering this tournament but they powered through and won every match, without conceding a single goal! Great work boys! Now on to the County Finals!

Wembley Stadium – Texans vs Jags

Last weekend we had the great privilege and opportunity to be invited down to Wembley stadium by the NFL. We were given exclusive access behind the scenes and were given the duty of being flag bearers during the opening ceremony, national anthem and the coin toss. The atmosphere was truly spectacular and all the children represented our school brilliantly!

Prince of Wales Victory!

This Saturday Tewkesbury C of E took part in the Prince of Wales Athletics Tournament.We couldn’t have asked for a better day. The weather was splendid and the children were all on top form.

I want to thank all the children who took part for their dedication and excellent attitude throughout training sessions and the event itself. All the children have worked incredibly hard, many taking part in 3 or more events.

It is this passion and hard work which allowed C of E to place 3rd overall and claim the ‘Rose Bowl Trophy’!

I hope that the 12 Year 6 children who took part take great pride in their achievements at their final Athletics Championship event on behalf of Tewkesbury C of E.

Tewkesbury Tornadoes Tournament

 

This week the American Football club took part in its Tournament at Tewkesbury School. We braved the weather forecast and were delighted to be met with an afternoon of glorious sunshine.

Teams from both Tewkesbury and Cheltenham arrived to try and claim the trophy and the opportunity of playing in Tottenham Stadium for the National Final. The winner of which will travel to Orlando Florida to compete against the best teams in the USA!

The children gave it their all but narrowly missed out on going to London. I want to congratulate all the children for their effort this term, especially our 2 MVP’s of the day and look forward to a new season next year!

Tag Rugby Festival

This Thursday has seen a fantastic display of rugby skills at the Tag Rugby Festival. The children played fantastically and performed incredibly well, winning 4 out of their seven matches. The team worked well together, passing the ball effectively and seeking open space to score countless tries.

County Cross Country

Congratulations to our children who took part in the County Cross Country finals on Saturday 2nd March. The weather was perfect and made for a great morning of racing. All children performed brilliantly in their own races and did the school proud! Mrs Lewis and I were particularly impressed with their level of determination and focus on the day. Well done to all of you!
