On Wednesday, a school year 5/6 team attended a football tournament at Inside Football. We played against other local small schools and after finishing 2nd in our group narrowly went on to lose the final 2-0 v Thrupp. Well done to the seven children that took part, all of whom represented the school brilliantly!
Owl Class enjoyed a fantastic day out at Cotswold Wildlife Park. As well as exploring the park and meeting lots of animals, we learnt all about the lifecycles of penguins, meerkats, wallabies and frogs.
The children all improved brilliantly over the past 5 weeks and they enjoyed their final session today, with a special mention to Jack for winning the prize in the closest to the gold competition!
After school football club continues to be a very popular for children in KS2!
