Owls Saxon Villages

We had some fantastic model Saxon Villages brought in which the children had clearly made a huge effort with. Many thanks to all parents, grandparents who got involved in the building process!

 

 

 

 

Sandfield Farm Visit

 Owls had a fabulous visit to Sandfield Farm last Wednesday despite the wet and wintery conditions. We enjoyed lots of topic related activities such as designing and building our own Saxon houses, grinding corn to make flour and even churning some milk to make butter!

Literature Festival

Owls had a fantastic time at Cheltenham Literature Festival where we saw the poet Matt Goodfellow perform. We have all been thoroughly inspired by his engaging and fun delivery of his poems. The children are now working hard on creating some of our own poems based on Matt's originals.

Winter Wonderland

Owls thoroughly enjoyed a wintry session up at Forest School with Nellie the Snowdog! They made sledges, snow bears and snow angels as well as using a large ball of string to make a food web.

Year 4 Rugby

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.
