A colourful welcome to our school!

Mr James braved the elements this week to begin planting in our large round bed at the entrance to school.

Morrisons in town have very kindly donated some beautiful plants to help us fill the flowerbed. Mr James has arranged the plants in a way to represent a rainbow of colour. It looks wonderful and we are all excited to watch as the flowers grow.

We send a big thank you again to Tewkesbury Morrisons!

We’re going on a bear hunt!

Showbie Help

Dear parents/carers,

Within school, we use Showbie as a way to set, share and store children’s work. The children will be very familiar with the app/website. However, if your child is in Year 1 they will be less familiar with the app and its functionality.
I have recorded and uploaded 2 short videos onto the website, showing how you log in to Showbie and where the work will be found/stored. Within the work folders, there will be a combination of messages, worksheets, pictures, videos to watch or links to websites to use to research which will be set daily by your child’s teacher. These video can be viewed here:

Year 1 children will be given a username and password to take home today, to allow them to access learning from home. Staff will be meeting after school today, to begin to upload activities for children who are self-isolating.

If you are having problems logging in, or accessing your child’s account, please let us know and we would be more than happy to support you.

 Many thanks
Mr T. Rylatt
Acting Headteacher
Tewkesbury C of E Primary School

Year 6 are estate agents

This week, we were asked by Daniel- a local estate agent- to assist him with selling a historic hut in Skara Brae, Scotland. He has asked us to produce a selling toolkit and the best will used by his company to advertise the newly-listed property!

As part of the toolkit, he explained estate agents create posters for their shop’s windows that highlight key features of the property and its surroundings. We have worked incredibly hard this week, learning the skills and language that estate agents use.

Here are a few examples of our posters:

Superhero Celebration Day!

To end our spectacular superhero topic we came to school dressed as superheroes!

We took part in a range of superhero activities and challenges which started the moment we arrived at school.

We had to climb through the spider web to gain entrance and scan our handprint to get through the door! We made superhero healthy fruit skewers, created our own superhero stories and solved different number challenges to unlock the trapped superheroes!

We all had a SUPER day in Reception!

Celebration Assembly!

Every Friday we gather together for an assembly which recognises children who have impressed staff with their work, attitude or behaviour. These children receive a certificate which goes on our whole school celebration board for all to see. Children who reach their DoodleMaths target join the celebrations and receive a certificate to recognise their achievements. We also update …

We have been busy in Pre – School!

We have been very busy in Pre – School over the last few weeks!

The children have continued to learn about their senses. They have been making textured collages using a range of media and materials. They have described the different textures and how the materials felt. They have been using words such as soft, bumpy, rough, hard, furry amongst many others!

The children have been making bread after reading the story about The Little Red Hen. The children had to follow the recipe carefully and make sure they measured the ingredients accurately. They talked about the changes they could see happening to the ingredients and how they made the bread. The children used their senses to smell the delicious bread as it baked in the oven!

The children have also been enjoying their time out on welly boot making faces with leaves, sticks and bark they have found in the natural environment!
