Last term ended with a fantastic residential trip to Condover Hall, Shrewsbury. The children had the opportunity to try a number of different activities from Aerial Trek to Archery Tag. Everyone returned to school at the end of the week exhausted after an amazing time.
End of Key Stage 2 Assessments will take place from Monday 13th May to Thursday 16th May 2019.
This term we will continue to learn about the impact of war in our topic Could you survive 1945?
Later in the term we will be travelling on a steam train dressed up as Evacuees during the war and learning about the struggles of everyday life during this time.
We have several trips to look forward to:
Thursday 23rdMay– Year 6 visit to Gloucester’s SkillZONE. SkillZONE is a state-of-the-art life size village. It is a fully interactive learning environment to teach people of all ages how to recognise dangerous situations and stay safe. There are 16 zones, which will cover a range of scenarios including road, rail and water safety, an internet cafe, as well as opportunities to cover home and personal safety.
Wednesday 5thJune– Evacuee Experience Day.On arrival at Winchcombe Station the children will be treated as if in 1940. As well as the steam train experience, the range of activities encompasses a presentation by Museum staff (with opportunity to dress up etc), air raid shelter with sound effects, fire fighting with hoses, sing-song, spy arrest and talks by real evacuees. The children will require a packed lunch and drink (no fizzy drinks please). If possible your child’s packed lunch should reflect the food of the 1940s. Please indicate on the permission slip if your child is entitled to a free packed lunch. Pupils and adults should ideally dress in 1940s style, with identity label and gas mask box.
Friday 7thJune– Gloucestershire School Mock Trial Competition. This year the competition is held at the Gloucestershire Police Headquarters, Waterwells. Two year 6 teams are competing; we will be preparing over the next few weeks and are looking forward to welcoming a local Magistrate into school.
Wednesday 12thJune– Cattle Country. A day for the children to relax and enjoy exploring both indoor and outdoor activities.
