Sharing gymnastics

It was great to share our gymnastics with Ospreys on Thursday as part of our whole school gym sharing day.

We are now looking forward to showing the parents our completed performance in our class assembly.

Superb Sportshall Athletics

On Wednesday Sparrowhawks took part in our first Sportshall athletics. They took part in 10 events including speed bounce, hi-stepper, chest push and target throw. Today the children were given the results with their certificates and I think it’s fair to say lots are already looking forward to beating their scores next year.

Woodchester park and mansion

We all had a fantastic time exploring at Woodchester Park and Woodchester Mansion.

So much fun was had in the park where we were able to assess the risks that there were presented to us and make decisions about which risks to take to have fun, but still be safe.

We also really enjoyed exploring the amazing architecture at Woodchester Mansion where we were given a guided tour.

Our trip to the Mosque and Cathedral

On Monday Sparrowhawks and Ospreys went to Gloucester to visit the Mosque( just of Barton Street) and the Cathedral. It was a really interesting day where we learnt about what happens in different places of worship. We had a talk from an Iman at the Mosque and heard about the Five Pillars, we looked around the building and also tried on different clothes.

After that we all walked to the Cathedral where we had lunch. Later we learnt about prayers,stain glass windows and pilgrimages. We made holders for small candles, created our idea for a window and produced some silhouettes of a chalice. We all had a really great day.

A Day At Forest Green Rovers

What a great day we had at Forest Green today! The weather may have been cold but we had a great welcome at Forest Green Football Club where we were treated to an action packed day. The events we were involved in ranged from nutrition and healthy eating (linking with some of the Science we are going to be involved in this year), an eco walk where we learnt how rain water was harvested and used to water the grounds, we met the amazing lawn mower which uses GPS to help it cut the grass and if it has problems can text the groundsman! We also saw how the Club creates its own electricity and how it provides electricity chargers (not petrol pumps) to fuel cars. It was really interesting and we enjoyed finding out what the ‘Greenest Football Club in the World’ was doing.

The day ended with a lesson on football skills, making windmills (linked to wind energy) and a question and answer session with one of Forest Green’s players, Isaiah Osbourne who plays centre mid field.

Thank you Forest Green for a great day, we would also like to thank Vinny, who was our tour guide for the day, for his support and help. We would love to visit Forest Green again soon.
