TEWKESBURY C OF E PRIMARY SCHOOL
Is it half term already? The children have been so busy during the term that time has just flown by. There have been some really exciting things happening in each class this term. Year 3 hosted an art exhibition to showcase some amazing rainforest art, Y2 set up a William Morris inspired museum to celebrate some of the amazing work the children have produced and Y1 became archaeologists and hunted for dinosaur bones around the school. Who knew the children would find a whole dinosaur skeleton!!! For more photos and to see what your child has been up to, please visit the school websites class pages.
We would also like to share our thanks to all of the parents and family members who have been in to school and helped during the R.E.A.L curriculum sessions in the afternoons. We would like to continue to offer you the opportunity to come in and lend a hand (it is very much appreciated). Please speak to your class teacher so they can share with you the different roles the children will be taking on after half term, will they be artists, scientists, historians… who knows?
Head Girl and Head Boy
All staff voted on the positions of Head Girl and Head Boy. The qualities we insist on for these positions are; tolerance, kindness, patience, commitment and to lead by example. This year’s Head Girl and Head Boy have them in abundance. Congratulations go to Jessica Lay and Thomas Wareing.
New Parent Governor Vacancy
Don’t forget, we have a vacancy for a parent governor. Parent governors are elected by the parents of children currently attending our school. They serve a three-year term of office and bring a very important and valued perspective to the work of the governing body. You would have been given your ballot papers, so please don’t forget to vote.
Just to keep you informed of the process to date. The governors have advertised the position and will be interviewing on the 26th and 27th November. Once the appointment has been made we will inform you as soon as possible.
Mile a day
Last Friday the children braved the rain to take part in ‘The Daily Mile Big Day Run’ (easier to run it than say it). In total, over 25,000 children from across 130 primary schools took part which was an incredible achievement. The Daily Mile is part of a national initiative which supports schools to get children active by encouraging them to jog or run 15 minutes every day. The playground was meticulously measured and we worked out that the children would need to run 13 laps to hit the mile mark. The one good thing about the horrible weather was that it made the children run that little bit faster!
The PTC have met and are beginning to plan some very exciting events to raise money for the school. If you would like to get involved in the PTC or would like to know more information about what being in the PTC entails, please speak to Mr Eveleigh who would be more than happy to have you on board. The next PTC meeting will be on Monday 4th November.
A reminder that we would like to invite any Year 3 children to join the school choir. The choir meets after school every Thursday until 4.15pm. Those children wishing to join please speak to the office ladies.
