Fifteen children were lucky enough to experience a Europa League game at the Old Trafford stadium last night. They had fantastic seats really close to the pitch as they watched Manchester United win the match 1-0.
It was lovely to have so many visitors coming along to Open Morning to get a feel for the school during a working day. Our Y6 House Captains gave guided tours, showing visitors around and talking to them about school.
Thank you to everyone who supported the Macmillan Coffee Morning Fundraiser and all our great volunteers who ran it. There were hot drinks and cakes to enjoy.
Thank you very much to all those who sent in cakes to support this event.
It was wonderful to welcome Harold the Giraffe and the Life Education Bus back to school this week.
It has been a rewarding and enriching learning opportunity for all the pupils here at Tirlebrook.
Every class was able to spend valuable time on the Bus learning about health and well-being in an enjoyable and age appropriate way.
What a fun way to learn about some very important life lessons!
Don’t forget to wear your jeans to school on Friday (instead of your usual school trousers or skirt) with your school shirt and sweatshirt on top and bring along a donation to lend your support to the Jeans for Genes charity. Thank you for your support.
We will be throwing our doors open and inviting you to come along to an open morning on Wednesday 28th September from 9 – 11am. There will be tours of the school available and we will once again be supporting the Macmillan Coffee Morning Fundraiser.
If you are able to send in some cakes or cookies for this they would be much appreciated. All donations are sent directly to the Macmillan charity.
House Captain Elections took place during House Huddles on Thursday 15th September.
Many of our Year 6 pupils took the decision to stand for election to the role of House Captain and presented their speeches to their houses.
This is a great opportunity for our eldest pupils to take on a leadership role in the school and for all our pupils to take part in the democratic act of voting.
Well done to all the candidates for being motivated to become leading role models within our school community.
We have now launched Tirlebrook 10 across the whole school. The infant children have been taking part in this initiative throughout the summer term and we have now rolled it out across the juniors too.
Tirlebrook 10 builds on many initiatives in schools across Great Britain that encourage children to be active outside and socialise with their peers in a different way than they would at lunch or playtime. The daily exercise is timetabled for 10 minutes; the children go at their own preferred pace; they can walk and chat with friends or run and challenge themselves to complete a number of circuits. This is a personal challenge for each individual child and allows the opportunity to demonstrate key skills of perseverance, determination, independence and resilience. There is also no changing or special equipment required; they just take part in their school uniform and school shoes.
At Tirlebrook we believe it is a great way to make exercise and fitness fun and to encourage more children to be involved in activities that will keep them healthy. It also develops the children's social, emotional and mental wellbeing as daily activity has been shown to reduce anxiety, strengthen peer relationships, reduce stress, improve memory and increase confidence.
It has been great to see the children coming into school with such positive attitudes and enthusiasm in their new year groups and looking forward to the learning opportunities and challenges that lie ahead.
