Tewkesbury C of E Primary School

Social Media Launch

Dear Parents,

We are very excited to launch our new Facebook and Twitter pages!

Facebook: Tewkesbury Church of England Primary School

Twitter: @Tewkpri

Facebook and Twitter are great ways to communicate school news, photos, videos and upcoming events and we hope by using social media we will further improve communications between the school and our community. We also view this as a way of further engaging you in your children’s daily learning more effectively.

In order for us to enter the world of social media responsibly, we request your permission to use your child’s image on Facebook and Twitter in the same way we currently do on the school’s website or in the local press.

If you do not wish for your children’s image to be placed on Facebook or Twitter, please contact the school office in writing to notify us of your wishes by Wednesday 6th March. If no contact is received by this date, we will assume you consent to the use of your child’s image for the purposes of school’s social media. Please note that any parent or carer can opt out of image use at any time past this date by contacting the school office in writing. Whilst we respect your right to decline permission for the use of your child’s image, we would like you to consider your decision carefully – should you wish to discuss this further, our school doors are always open.

We would appreciate it if you could bear with us in the early stages of our social media adventure while we establish the most effective ways of posting and tweeting and would like you to take note of the following key points:

  • Only core staff from the school’s Communication Team will be posting / tweeting pictures (to begin with)
  • Neither Facebook nor Twitter should be used as a means of communication between teachers and individual parents – please continue to contact teachers directly through the school office or approach them at the end of the day for specific questions and issues as they arise
  • Social networking sites are not an appropriate place to discuss any concerns you may have and we request that you continue to ask any questions or raise any issues by arranging an appointment with the Headteacher
  • Posts and tweets will be made on an ‘as and when’ basis – there is no expectation on the minimum number of posts / tweets made, but we promise to not bombard you with too many either

For further information, please read the school’s Social Media Policy on the school website.

We are looking forward to being able to share more photos with yourselves and the wider world and promote the wonderful activities that we do at Tewkesbury Primary. We hope that you embrace this new venture with the same excitement as us.

Kind regards,

Mrs Scott
Headteacher

Miss Jaryczewski and Miss Rowland
Communications Team

Year 3 Rainforest Launch Day

On Wednesday Year 3 held their Rainforest and Mayan Launch Day. The children enjoyed a wonderful day filled with a variety of different activities, such as making clay monkey, producing Mayan masks, Toucan drawing and Rainforest watercolour painting, inspired by Henri Rousseau.

Year 6 Win Maths Challenge!

On Tuesday 9th October, four marvellous mathematicians took part in a Maths Challenge at Deans Close School, Cheltenham.

Our Year 6 mathematicians were challenged with three rounds of tricky maths questions, including solving worded problems, countdown and even algebra! However, the problems didn’t phase our Year 6s and one of our teams landed the top spot to win the Cheltenham Year 6 Maths Challenge.

We are proud of all our Year 6s for representing the school so well and also for demonstrating their excellent mathematical knowledge.

Congratulations to Ollie and Amy and also to Ollie and Eva!

World Book Day 2018

World Book Day 2018

Well, what a great day we had for World Book Day!

It all started with Burglar Bill sharing a story with us – it was his favourite one!

Then we got to see all of the amazing outfits that the children (and teachers) got dressed up in.

We had characters from Roald Dahl.

 

We had characters from David Walliams.

 

We had characters from Fairy Tales.

 

We had characters from Harry Potter.

 

We had characters from Dr Seuss.

 

We had many Where’s Wallys’ but we couldn’t find them anywhere!!!

 

We had Superheroes.

 

and we had many other amazing outfits.

 

Next, the children went back to class to carry out many exciting activities all to do with books, books and more books! Before rushing off at 2 o’clock to beat the snow.

The children were fantastic all day. Thank you to everyone for helping us out and sorting out the children’s costumes!

 

 

 

 

Daily Maths Problems

Daily Maths Problems

During March, the White Rose Maths Team will be publishing a daily Maths problem to encourage mathematical thinking and develop problem solving and reasoning across a broad spectrum of mathematical concepts covered at Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2.

Each day, a new challenge will be posted for all children to attempt to solve. We would love it if you and your children could work through the relevant age related problems to help develop reasoning and problem solving skills!

Good Luck!
