What a great send off the Y6 children got on Friday. I want to wish them all the happiest summer and hope that they have a great time with their families before beginning the next stage of their educational journey. Thank you for my gifts and cards, very generous, and the HHH - my chance to say goodbye to each and every one of you individually. I do hope to see you all again in the future. It has been a great privilege to work alongside a very special group of young people. Thanks for the many happy times and wonderful memories. So that leaves me to say 'Goodbye' and 'Good Luck!' to Abbie, Bradley, Tom, Izzy, Jack D, Will, Tegan, Joel, Savannah, Jolie, Jack Pa, Milly, Abby, Jack Ph, Reece, Ella, James, Paddy, Courtney, Sophie, Anna, Charlie and Louis. I hope that you will all look back at your final year at Tirlebrook with fondness and remember the many opportunities that we have shared together. Love from Mr. L. #specialkids
Elder Class have enjoyed a special Celebration Day as a (just) reward for all of their hard work at Tirlebrook, not just in Y6, but throughout their time at the school. There has been a giant slide, sumo suits, swimming, fun games (including a mini waterfight - poor Mr. Lockley was absolutely soaked!!), a film and generally lots of great spirit and laughter! May I take this opportunity to thank all the children in Elder Class for a terrific year. I hope that you will all look back at your final year at Tirlebrook with fondness and remember the many opportunities that we have had. It has been a privilege to teach you lot this year ... and I will miss you. Good luck everyone!
The Y5 and Y6 children have been working really hard to get their end of year performance together. This afternoon, 'Cinderella and Rockerfella' premiered to a large audience. The children's performance was OUTSTANDING. There was a mixture of great acting and singing and the performance was full of laughter and emotion. The children should all be very proud of themselves - the staff certainly are! Let's hope that Thursday's performance will be at least as good - if not, even better!
Elder class were delighted to have been invited to join in a special Medieval Day of activities as the Medieval Festival approaches. All primary schools in the area were invited to join in a number of activities, including music and dance, squire training, sword drill and archery. We also had the chance to look around the King's camp, watch a falconry display during lunch time and be entertained by some very funny jesters. Perhaps the highlight of the day was the opportunity to battle with the Lancastrians alongside the King. We took along our banner with our school logo and four houses on display - the four houses all named after a famous historical figure from the Battle of Tewkesbury - Montague, Hastings, Wenlock and Beauchamp. We were lucky enough to meet the King and the re-enactor who was to play Beauchamp in the battle! It was a long and hot day, but packed full of activity and opportunities for learning. Thank you to the organisers for a brilliant day - I hope we will get the chance to come back and enjoy a similar day in the future.
There were over 400 people at the Abbey on Thursday as children from across Tewkesbury gathered together for the Y6 Leavers' Service 2014. Elder class have been working on a performance of the song 'Believe' with Hannah Davey in readiness for the service. The class sang beautifully as the sound reverberated around the Abbey. There was passion and emotion in the performance and Tirlebrook received a large ovation. Well done to all, but especially to Courtney and James who sang solo. Thanks to Hannah for coming along on the day to accompany the children on the piano. This is the beginning of the end Y6!!! :(

Well done everyone - it was a great trip and I am so PROUD of you all! Mr. L
