It was wonderful to see so many of our Reception Class families choosing to 'Stay & Play' on Monday and join in with the Oak Tree Class experience. The children enjoyed showing their visitors around their class and shared their new learning environment with their families. Thank you to everyone who came along and joined in.
It was a great experience for our Y6 children to go down to the Roses Theatre in Tewkesbury yesterday to watch the dress rehearsal performance of Tewkesbury School's production of the musical 'Grease'. They thoroughly enjoyed the show and it was fantastic for them to see some Tirlebrook past pupils up on the stage. We wish them well for their evening shows this week!
Y4 set off for Cirencester this morning to visit the Corinium Museum and the Roman Amphitheatre. They were off to find out facts and information about the Romans as part of their 'Roaming Romans' topic this term.
What an exciting time they had! They enjoyed the wonderful, hands-on experiences of the Corinium Museum exploring a range of exciting and practical activities, including: mosaic making, dressing up as Romans, exploring Roman food and pottery, and finally, playing a range of interesting Roman board games.
They also explored the wonderful exhibits and artefacts that the Corinium had to offer, from Boudicca's tombstone to the legionary armour and barracks of the Roman army, to great mosaic designs on the floors and walls, to even holding the weight of a soldier's uniform.
They then visited the local history of Cirencester, at the Roman Amphitheatre, before heading home to Tewkesbury. It really gave the children a good insight into the scale of the building that once stood there.
Thank you to all of the staff that made our trip possible and thank you to all of the children for their enthusiasm and efforts during the trip. We should definitely go back again!

Twenty eight children from Y5 & Y6 were lucky enough to take part in a coaching session with England Hockey today. They had a brilliant time playing a variety of different hockey skills games.
The session was led by Demy Dowley - Talent Development Lead Coach. She was assisted by Bev Blackburn and Claire Williams from the Coaching & Development Team. Peter Crook came along to film all the action.
The children were filmed and interviewed and will be featured in a short video. The video will be available on the England Hockey Hub... so look out for them!
Yesterday saw the launch of School Council's annual Anti-Bullying Week at Tirlebrook.
The School Council have planned a range of activities and events across the week to raise awareness and encourage everyone to use their 'Power For Good'.
In assembly there was time to reflect on what bullying is and the difference between bullying and people falling out with friends or behaving in a mean way. The whole school revisited the idea of bullying being Several Times On Purpose.
