Virtual Sports Week – The Importance of Exercise

Virtual Sports Week – The Importance of Exercise

As you’ll know, this week we have been carrying out our Virtual Sports Week, where you have been set 15 challenges to complete to try and earn points for you House. All the points gained will go towards your House totals and the House with the most points will be our first ever Virtual Sports Week Winners.

As we’re focussing on sport this week, Ava (from year 4) has filmed an excellent video which talks about the importance of exercise and the benefits it brings to you. We loved it so much, we wanted to share it with you all. Well done Ava and well done to everyone who has taken part in our Virtual Sports Week so far. You all look like you’re having lots of fun!

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!

Get ready to smile!

Here is a truly uplifiting video of our wonderful children and their families getting involved in the song challenge from last week!

We all miss listening to these beautiful voices in our daily collective worship at school, so it is a real pleasure to see the children having such fun taking part at home!

School Closure

Dear parents/carers,

It is with great sadness that I have to say that from Monday 23rd March, the school will officially be closing its doors to many of you for the foreseeable future.
Although these last few weeks have been challenging for all, the support and unity shown by the children, staff and the whole community has been endless. It is this unity that makes Tewkesbury C of E the special place it is.
The school will remain open to a small number of children and families, this is to help those of you who are working around the clock to help others. Your selfless acts will forever be remembered.
Over the next few months, your teachers will still be working tirelessly to set your children fun and stimulating activities and to try and keep you up to date with some of the latest resources that are available for those homeschooling. No doubt that these activities will get more and more elaborate as we come to understand the capabilities of working remotely, I’m very excited about what teachers are already planning to do! 
And for the parents who are homeschooling your children, I want to wish you the best of luck. Remember, learning can take many forms, so please snuggle up and read together, build a den, plant some flowers, bake, eat together and enjoy each other’s company. This is a rare opportunity, so make the most of it. 
Never in our generation, have we had to deal with anything quite like this, but I firmly believe that when we all return, we will be stronger than ever. We have such a committed team at C of E who are ready to do whatever it takes to get through this, and I for one, am immensely proud of them all. 
Take care of yourselves

Year three science afternoon

Year three had lots of fun today bringing science into the classroom – we made slime, built bridges, used magnets, experimented with colour as well as reflecting and refracting light. The children explored brilliantly with curiosity and questions.
