This morning we celebrated the core values of our school - Creativity, Environment, Community & Positive Attitude - as we awarded Core Value Medals to pupils from each class who had been nominated as representing the core values of the school throughout Spring Term. We also awarded the Core Value Cups which will be engraved and go on display in our trophy cabinet. Congratulations to all our winners!
It was amazing to see all the Superheroes in Oak Tree Class coming to the rescue today with their fantastic superpowers.
Many, many thanks to all those who came along to lend a hand at the Tirlebrook Big Dig on Friday afternoon.
Hundreds of trees were planted and Woodland Workshop and some of the garden beds have had a good tidy up.
What a great community spirit to see families working together at Tirlebrook. A fantastic effort.
The sun even shone!
The whole school gathered together to experience the solar eclipse this morning. The sky turned grey and the air cooled before the sun came back out again. One for the memory banks!
We have had a great time today dressing down, wearing red noses and looking funny for money.
The total raised so far is £216.09. Thank you for all your donations.
As part of our Eco Council's Environment Week and in celebration of Environment being a core value at Tirlebrook the children from Reception class through to Year 4 took to the school grounds on Thursday to collect up litter.
The Year 5 and Year 6 children headed out into the local community to carry out a 'Big Tidy Up' litter pick. One group headed off to clear litter from Newtown Park and Walton Cardiff Lane, whilst the other group picked litter along the old railway line, eventually ending up behind Morrisons. There was a great community spirit amongst the children who recognised that if we all do a little bit then a great deal can be achieved. 12 large bags of rubbish were collected and disposed of before the children had squash and a biscuit laid on kindly by the staff at Morrisons. And there were some unusual finds ... a bike lock, somebody's hairbrush, a Tirlebrook school jumper and one lucky pupil even found a five pound note! Well done to everyone.
The Woodland Workshop has been full of creativity this week as each house has spent time outdoors together.
The houses were set the task, by Eco Council, to each work to create a piece of weaving on the outdoor loom. The teamwork and community has been fantastic to see and the enjoyment that the children have had spending time exploring Woodland Workshop has been wonderful.
Many congratulations to our Eco Council for their newly redesigned House Nature Quiz. There were rounds of questions for each year group to answer and they had to choose their answers by going to mats A, B or C.
The Eco Council did a great job making sure everyone had the right colours and supporting their houses.
Very well done to Hastings House for retaining the House Nature Quiz trophy in a very closely contended quiz.
It has been a fantastic start to Environment Week today as the juniors put on their wellies and spent time in our outdoor environment. It was also great to see the first of our houses using the outdoor loom to create a large piece of weaving this afternoon.
Eco Council have organised for a range of activities to involve the whole school in celebrating the environment.
From exploring Woodland Workshop to enjoying identifying trees in the school grounds, the children have had an excellent time experiencing nature and the outdoors.
