Big friends spent some time with their little friends on Friday afternoon. We created some drawings and talked about what we enjoy most about spending time together. It was a really positive way to mark the end of Anti-bullying week.
On Friday Grace, Josie, Fenton and Seb attended the Year 4 Math Challenge at St Edward's Senior School.
They took part in several rounds of different maths activities. It was fabulous to watch them work - they were all excited and embraced the challenge. We were impressed by how quickly Josie and Grace completed the 24 Game round, and how well Fenton and Seb worked as a team.
Josie was also chosen to take part in a card trick.
The children all represented the school beautifully - well done!
We don't know the results yet, but whatever they may be, the children have made us very proud.
Thank you very much to Mrs Weatherley-Kaye for supplying me with coffee and conversation! And thank you to Mrs Clargo, Mrs Weatherley-Kaye, Mr Milner and Mr Jouni for facilitating transport for the children.
Year 4 did exceptionally well at a rather wet but ultimately enjoyable rugby tournament in Tewkesbury, organised by Gloucester Rugby who have been working with the children in the first half term.
Having narrowly lost our opening game, we improved game on game and won their remaining three games. The children were a credit to the school and showed superb determination and teamwork in horrible conditions.
Robins came to school dressed as someone they would like to be when they grow up...
Sarah's Mummy came in to talk to us about her job as a nurse.
Kingfishers had a wonderful dress up day to celebrate the end of their Castles topic, with an amazing array of knights, princesses, kings, archers and even a dragon! They all enjoyed the opportunity to take part in their very own mock 'joust', complete with hobby horses, in the afternoon - a lot of fun was had by all!
