Tag Rugby Festival

April 17th, 2018

The Hawks had the opportunity to apply their rugby skills in real match conditions at Cirencester Rugby Club. It was really pleasing to see everyone improve during the festival as they developed their skills and attitudes. This resulted in some great tags and fantastic tries. Also, they were able to develop their leadership skills and decide which areas of their game they could improve. Most importantly, everyone had fun and enjoyed the opportunity to compete against other schools in an atmosphere of great sportsmanship. Well done Hawks!

At the beginning of our topic, the Hawks decided on tasks they would like to complete at home to further their learning. Some of the children had decided to create boats and wanted to sail them down the stream. As they were floating, everyone could see the effect of the current and where in the stream it was fastest. There was great excitement as the boats all managed to get under the bridge, just not necessarily the right way up!

From Source to Severn

January 30th, 2018
As part of our topic the Hawks wanted to visit a river for their trip this term. We decided to follow our school stream the source to the Severn. From looking at a map we realised the stream that passes through the school grounds is a tributary for the Severn. After locating the source, we followed the stream and river all the way to Upper Framilode where it meets the Severn. On our journey we saw meanders, lakes and confluences. Everyone was amazed to see the size of the Severn compared to the stream. It was an amazing trip!

Great view!

River Model

January 19th, 2018
To help everyone learn the vocabulary to communicate their learning about rivers, the Hawks have been busy building a model. First they used papier-mache to create the model and then painted it. Everyone used their collaboration skills to succeed in the task and produce a fantastic model.

A team from the Hawks went to Deer Park School to compete in a gymnastics competition. They were all aspiring to do their best by thinking carefully about how to improve their performance. Running powerfully, the team used the springboard to leap onto the vault and jumped with confidence. During the floor routine, everyone took great care to perform with control and combine their movements with fluency. Well done Team!

Gym competition


January 5th, 2018

The Hawks took part in a gymnastic competition at SWR against other local schools. They were able to apply a floor routine and a vault they had been learning in PE. It was really pleasing to see everyone having a go and doing their best. They also enjoyed the opportunity to do some team balances and learn to use the beam with the help of SWR’s fantastic Sports Leaders.

After all of their fantastic efforts one team finished second and one team finished first! A full gallery of pictures is available on the school website.

Visit to FGR

November 29th, 2017

The Hawks have been on a great trip to FGR. They had the chance to apply their cooking skills by making delicious sweet potato burgers. After feasting on their hard work, they had an informative tour of a unique football stadium. Later they met Keanu Marsh-Brown and found out what life is like for a professional football player. Throw in the chance for learning some new football skills, and you can see why everyone had such a good day! Visit the school website for a full gallery of pictures.
