They took part in a carousel of activities to learn about the history of this, the Battle of Tewkesbury: music and dance, archery and spear drill, medieval camp visit and squire training (involving: charging the quintain and handling and using weapons).

Year 3 Trip to Caerleon

On Thursday, Year 3 had a wonderful adventure in Caerleon, Wales. We took part in a Roman lesson dressing up as Roman children and explored the Barracks, the Amphitheatre and the baths. We had a lot of fun in the sunshine!     

Year One’s trip to Weston Super-Mare

This term year one have been learning all about the seaside. It was great to celebrate our learning by taking a trip to Weston super-Mare.

During our visit we had fun playing on the beach, digging in the sand and competing in a sandcastle competition.
We also had a donkey ride along the beach and finished the day with a delicious Mr Whippy ice cream!

We had a wonderful day. It was lots of fun!

    

   

          

 

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!
