Head’s Blog – 17th November

The children have all had an action packed week.  Both KS1 and KS2 got to visit the Cinema as part of a National scheme to encourage children to watch film.  Miss Cecil organised for KS1 to watch Captain Underpants and KS2 to watch the Diary of a Wimpy Kid.  School Staff organised for them to have popcorn too!  The children had a wonderful time.

Today we have not only been spotty but we have raised lots of money for Children in Need.  I could not believe how generous parents were in contributing to the cake sale and I cannot wait to eat some of it! Thank you everyone, it bodes well for our Christmas Bazaar on Friday 1st December.


This afternoon we have had two Artists, Rebecca and Bella,  visiting us to help us make lanterns for the Coleford Lantern Parade.  This takes place on Saturday 2nd December at 5:00 p.m.  We are hoping that as many families can attend as possible with the lanterns that have been made. So many skills have been learnt whilst making the lanterns.  See some of the work in progress below.

Democracy in Action

Mrs Hopkins organised a secret ballot for our school council.  It was impressive how many children wanted to have a leadership role in our school.  The children did speeches to express why they should be voted for, then every person followed the same procedure an adult does in an election.

The votes were counted and the results were very close.   Our spotty school council is below:
