    PSHE - Global citizens

    Posted by Miss E Franklin
    We've been going deep in PSHE this week! The children started by considering what they feel lucky for in their own lives before we considered what is need and what is want. We then went through the UN's list of children's rights and the children were shocked by what was not a given for all children. We then looked into how Oxfam are trying to improve situations for children across the globe. The children were fantastic during this potentially upsetting session and asked some really mature questions.

    Art Competition Deadlines Coming Up!

    Posted by Mrs L Baker
    We have two exciting art competitions coming up! The first is being run by Berkeley Hunt Agricultural Society, who will provide the school with a wheelbarrow and 2 bags of compost. Using the theme "Follow the Yellow Brick Road – At the end of the road you will find good things,” the children need to design a garden to go in the wheelbarrow with vegetables or flowers. How you interpret the theme is entirely up to you. We will then use the winning design and create the wheelbarrow by appealing to local suppliers to help with the contents. The wheelbarrow will be judged at Berkeley Show on Sunday 24th June. A prize fund of £500 will be awarded to the winning school. We would like the children, on a rota basis, to stay with their wheelbarrows to answer any questions from the general public, so we will be asking for volunteers who will be given free child entry tickets to the show by The Show Committee. Entry forms can be found on the school website on term pages and the closing date is 18/5/18. The second competition is to design a wooden castle to be carved into the top of the large wooden stump in the courtyard near Year 1 and fairy doors to go at the bottom. The winning design will see their creation carved by a real wood artist who will be working with the school. The design could be based on Berkeley Castle, a fairy tale/ book or completely from your imagination. Entry forms can be found on the school website on term pages and the closing date is 18/5/18.

    PE - sports day prep!

    Posted by Miss E Franklin
    This week in PE we have been practicing the races ready for sports day. We worked on our starting technique, pumping our arms and legs throughout and not slowing down before the finish line. The children impressed me with their excellent sportsmanship and I am sure they will show this to you for sports day!
