Remembrance Day

We are determined to keep this important tradition alive in school and the children have participated in a number of “Remembrance” related activities, culminating in our one-minute silence at 11:00 am yesterday – perhaps some of our closer neighbours heard me ringing the old school bell? Thank you if you or your child contributed to our Poppy Appeal collection.

Football Tournament

A hectic but very successful week for our school football team! Very well done to all the young chaps below – winners of the Tewkesbury District 7-a-side Tournament held on Tuesday ….... 5 matches, 3 wins 2 draws, 1 goal conceded! We will now go through to the county finals at Oxstalls Sports park on Tuesday 30th November – further details to follow. The following day, the same team won their second league game of the season – 3-1 away against Aithrie, a private school in Cheltenham.

Tree of Promises

On Friday 5th November 2021, during the UN Climate Change Conference COP26, young people and schools across the UK have been asked by the WWF to form a Forest of Promises, displaying leaves made by students on a ‘tree of promises’ and starting a conversation in the wider community about the changes needed to address climate change. Kingfishers, Owls and Eagles classes have made their own promise leaves, which have been displayed in the front garden. On one side of our leaves we have written a promise of something we are going to try to do to help our planet and on the other side we have written something we would like world leaders to do to help our planet. Please take a look at our promises if you can – they make for interesting reading.
