We have made it to the end of another term and what a busy final week we have had.
On Saturday a team of 6 gymnasts who entered the Forest of Dean School’s competition. I was so proud of them all because it was the first experience of this annual competition. All children did the best that they could do and we had 3 children get placed. Jenson was 3rd in vault in Level 1, year 3 boys. Abigail was 3rd on vault in Level 2, year 4 girls, with Rhiannon placing 3rd on floor in the same group. They all had a wonderful time and were pleased with their performances.
One of targets this year has been to increase the amount of children who read regularly, at least 3 times a week. This term we had a number of children receiving their Tickled Pink Bronze award which means that this is the first term that they have achieved the target. We also had numerous children receiving their Silver award because they have read regularly since September. I would love to see everyone receive a certificate in the summer.
As you know we aim for all children to have 100% attendance and 12 of our children were able to achieve this. They are:
Brooke, Frank, Bethan, Cameron, Paige, Lily-Rose, Jenson, Alfie-Jai, Kaiden, Olly, Ryan and Imogen.
Furthermore, a number of children have only missed one day. Well done!
We have had the Gloucestershire Geology Society in school today working with the whole school. Here are some photographs depicting the day. We got to travel in a time machine and try to appreciate how long ago fossils were formed.
As you know I award two awards, one from Oak and from Willow for the children who have upheld our school values at all times. It is getting increasingly difficult to choose because so many of our children do this, a wonderful problem to have!
We would all like to wish Miss Brint and her fiance, Mr Stirrup best wishes for their day tomorrow and their future life together. We look forward to welcoming Mrs Stirrup to our staff after Easter.
