As our topic 'Gorgons, Gods and Gold' comes to an end, most of the children in Elder Class have competed their Greek theatre masks - and what a great job they have done. Take a look ... (Thank you again Mrs. Mills!!).
Our girls' football squad, made up mostly of Y6 girls, travelled over to Warden Hill in Cheltenham to participate in a girls' friendly football festival. The sun was shining and the girls were smiling as Tirlebrook went head to head with three Cheltenham schools - Leckhampton, Bishop's Cleeve and Warden Hill. Although we didn't win, it was great to see the girls so positive and determined. As the matches went on, their confidence and performance got stronger and stronger. This event has kick-started the year for our girls' football team and we are all really excited for the events that are to follow. Well done, everyone!
Squad: May Chen, Molly Clarke, Lucie Cummings, Rosie Hiorns, Ami Nunn, Ria Nuttall, Porsche Parker, Esme Smith & Lilia Teasdale
It has been a real privilege for Elder Class to visit Tewkesbury School Library for sessions with their librarians, Mrs. Baird, Mrs. Smith and Mrs. Pinfield, for the last four Thursday afternoons. The children have been able to practise a wide range of library skills as well as browsing and reading books, using the Accelerated Reader system, completing quizzes and trails and presenting a brief author study. It is also a great opportunity for those children due to transfer to Tewkesbury School in September to familiarise themselves with the library and its staff. Thank you Tewkesbury School for allowing us this great opportunity.
Following on from work on Safer Internet Day on Tuesday to help us all remember to stay safe online, Mr. Lockley arranged for Years 5 and 6 to have a 90 minute workshop entitled 'bCyberwise' run by Gloucestershire Life Education. The interactive session led by Anita really got the children talking about their online experiences and how they could all ensure that they behaved safely. Anita reminded the children to:
* Keep passwords private
* Only click on links from people you know and trust
* Delete or block unwanted messages
* Check if you are on a safe website
* Think before you share comments or photos online
and not to:
* Share personal information
The key message to remember from Safer Internet Day this year is 'Play Your Part for a Better Internet'. This was reinforced during the workshop and we hope that the children of Elder Class will continue to make positive choices about their online behaviour.
Elder Class have been continuing to become more confident with fractions. They have been practising a range of operations using fractions and can now add, subtract, multiply and divide with confidence. Well done Y6!
