2014 Fete Update

June 25, 2014

Friday 20th June 2014 was a fantastic day!

The fete kicked off with a procession of all years through the school grounds, children dressed in bright colours and wearing or holding the art projects made the previous week.

There were displays from Gymnastics Club and Drama Club and live music from Fin and Tally.  There were an array of stalls; Refreshments and Cake, Ice Creams, Pimms and Bar, Candy Floss, Burgers and Hot Dogs, Books, Plants, Games, Bottle Tombola, Free Crafts and Games, Stocks and Y5 selling badges and pictures.  The winners of the colouring and posy competition were announced. To top it off we had an amazing raffle this year, with some fantastic top prizes including riding lessons at a local stables and the Street Hampers.

The PTFA are pleased to announce that over £1,500 was raised. Now the inside of the school is looking great, we want to start a project outside in the playground, perhaps updating some of the fixtures and equipment.  If you have any suggestions then please feed them back, in an envelope marked for the PTFA, via the school office, you might also like to comment on how you thought the fete went this year, it is always good to hear your opinion, as this will help us improve next years events.

Half Term already!!!

May 23, 2014

Wow!!!  This half term has flown by!  What with Year 6’s end of primary school assessments, Y3 and 4’s success at the District Quad Kids and reaching the final in June,  new computer equipment, Y5’s Maths challenge at Westonbirt, our new Archery team getting through to the Hartpury finals also in June, and lots of children have progressed onto their Silver Housepoint Awards with a great chance of reaching their Gold Award by the end of the year.   Its amazing what you can pack into a short 5 week term (with two Bank Holiday Mondays thrown in!!).

Next term looks to be just as busy with the usual end of year celebrations; please keep a lookout in the school diary for all the dates. One special change is parents can join in rounders on a Friday after school; do come along and join in the fun.

Enjoy your Whitsun break….and hopefully the sun will shine again.
