Our annual Health & Wellbeing Week begins today – we have a stimulating and jam-packed week of activities planned. There are a range of fantastic experiences for the children, including yoga sessions, dance workshops, Zumba workouts and a World Cup Roadshow, all culminating with our school’s community Sports Day on Friday. We look forward to seeing all of the children getting fully involved as they explore enjoyable and different ways to ensure that they are living healthily and are paying due attention to their mental, spiritual, social and physical wellbeing.
Tirlebrook 10 – England’s World Cup Chase
We are beginning our final Tirlebrook 10 challenge of the year this week. The children are competing in houses to see who will be the first to get around all three of the Russian stadiums that England will play at in the group stages of the upcoming football World Cup. Starting out in Kaliningrad, each house will work together to virtually run the 1105 miles to Volgograd, then the further 525 miles to Nizhny Novgorod and then the final 247 miles to the Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow, where England will be hoping to play in the World Cup Final on the 15th July. That’s 1877 miles in total. This is a great challenge to finish off the year – so let’s get excited about representing Beauchamp, Hastings, Montague or Wenlock in the Tirlebrook 10 England’s World Cup Chase.
Welcome back! A busy term is already underway as we wave our Y5 children off on their residential, our Y6 begin their Bikeability cycling sessions and a large group of children take part in a tri--golf festival.
In class our classes have been starting work on their new topics and are working hard already!
Here's to another great term at Tirlebrook.
It was great to see Tirlebrook turning green today as we celebrated the final day of our "Green Week'. It has been wonderful to spend time outdoors exploring and enjoying the wonders of the natural world.
Congratulations to all our pupils for taking part so enthusiastically in our annual House Nature Quiz. Beauchamp scored the most points in the infant nature quiz and after a closely contested series of tie-breaker questions Montague scored the most points in the junior nature quiz. Once all the points were totalled Beauchamp were announced as this year's House Nature Quiz champions and were awarded with the trophy during Celebration Assembly.
This week we launched our Green Week in school. There was a range of 'green' activities taking place including all of our KS2 pupils taking part in bird spotting workshops and spending time outdoors, all of our children celebrating out core value of 'Environment' by exploring our Woodland Workshop, our 'Green Team' spending time in the school allotment and of course our annual House Nature Quiz.
Congratulations to our dance groups the Tirlebreakers and the Tirleboppers who tooke part in the parade through Tewkesbury on Saturday as part of Tewkesbury's Big Weekend celebrations.
They then both performed brilliantly at the dance arena. Many thanks to all the staff who came along and to all the fabulous Tirlebrook families who lent their support. Well done everyone!
It has been great to see all the colours of the rainbow throughout Tirlebrook today as everyone gets involved with our School Council's 'Kindness Day'.
There have been many random acts of kindness happening across the school and this afternoon our Y6 pupils are very kindly working with the other classes to show them how to make bookmarks inspired by their recent craft workshop with Angelica Bell on their Ultimate School Trip.
Our Y6 class have spent the most amazing last few days in Majorca enjoying the trip that they won through a Jet2Sun Holiday competition. It was wonderful to see all the children embracing this wonderful opportunity and conducting themselves throughout with great respect.
A huge well done too to the staff for all their efforts to ensure the children were organised, ready and able to immerse themselves in their Ultimate School Trip in a safe, enjoyable and encouraging way.
Take a look at their Elder Tree Class blog to see just some of the experiences they have had.
