All the juniors took part in a marathon running event this afternoon. They competed in their houses running around a track set out on the school field. Well done to the House Captains for organising their houses. Everyone got involved, with some children exercising their voices as much as their legs, as they chanted and cheered on their house mates. The teamwork and positive attitudes on show were fantastic and there was some great running too. Well done!
Thank you to everyone who came along to our open morning and everyone who supported the fundraising for Macmillan by bringing cakes or buying drinks and treats.
There was a fantastic atmosphere in the hall and many positive comments about the school and the calm working atmosphere in the classrooms.
Our newly elected house captains took lots of visitors on tours around the school. They were a real credit to themselves and Tirlebrook as they showed people around.
Our Reception class took advantage of the lovely autumn sunshine today, as they spent time out in our Woodland Workshop area.
They also went into the orchard and picked the ripened apples from the trees. They picked three baskets full of fruit from the trees that were planted at one of our first Big Dig in 2011.
What a bumper harvest!
Our junior children gathered into house huddles today to consider whether Scotland should become independent or stay in the union.
All the children had the opportunity to vote 'Yes' or 'No'.
Having counted the votes, 80% of the children voted for Scotland to remain in the UK.
Will this be reflected in the results of the Scottish referendum?
It was fantastic to see so many children coming along to Running Club this morning - 30% of our juniors in fact!
They all worked really hard and have begun the laps towards completing their distance challenge.
We'll look forward to seeing how they improve.
Well done to Mr Tomkins and Mr Lockley as well!
As you can see they all brought the field back into school with them...
Thank you to the families that came along to 'meet the team' today and spent time meeting staff and governors and finding out more about the school.
Above are some pictures of displays representing just some of the activities and events that our pupils participate in, as we work hard to provide a wide range of opportunities and to drive forward the school's core values of: Positive Attitude, Creativity, Environment and Community.
All the children gathered into their houses for a huddle today. They had to make the decision about who would lead them this year.
Huge congratulations to all our Year 6 pupils who had all been working on their presentations to their houses in a bid to become the new house captains.
It took courage to stand In front of their houses and present themselves and their ideas. We will be announcing the successful candidates next week and presenting them with their house captain badges.
Well done to all those children in each house who listened well and thought carefully about who would get their vote.
