May 25th, 2018

A team from the Hawks took part in the Quadkids District Finals at Cirencester Arena. They really enjoyed competing against other schools in the 400m, 50m sprint, howler throw and long jump. They collaborated as a team to score points and finished with over 1000! They finished 8th out of over 30 schools who take part in the competition which is a super achievement!

Sponsored Walk

May 25th, 2018

The whole school enjoyed being active and taking part in the sponsored walk to raise money for FOAS. We managed to dodge the showers and walk around the beautiful surroundings of Avening. There was plenty of mud and puddles which just made the walk even more enjoyable! Well done everyone!

The Hawks and Owls took part in the annual District Sports event against other local schools. Everyone competed in a variety of track and field events including sprints, relays, long jump, triple jump and speed bounce.

Kwik Cricket Festival

May 15th, 2018

The Hawks enjoyed the opportunity to take part in a cricket festival at SWR where they learnt how to play kwik cricket. They collaborated with pupils from other schools to develop their skills before applying them in a match. The sports leaders from SWR were brilliant in keeping everyone active and teaching them the rules. Everyone made great improvements with their cricket skills during the session. Well done everyone! A full gallery of pictures is on the school website.

RE- What kind of world did Jesus want?

May 13th, 2018

As part of our work learning about Christianity, Rev. Gerald visited the class to explain how Jesus’ teachings impact on how Christians try to behave and the role the church has in supporting this. He explained things Christians choose to do, such as support foodbanks, visit lonely people and look after the church building, happen because they want to spread goodness around the world.

Later we visited the church to find out more about the work that takes place there. Rev. Gerald showed the pupils the noticeboard with the different activities that take place. They also had the opportunity to meet other members of the church who help prepare for services and look after the clock.

It was a really informative visit and allowed the pupils to recognise how Christians choose to live in a way which helps spread love to those they meet.

FGR Ambassadors

April 25th, 2018

We have chosen our Forest Green Ambassadors for next season and they have already got to meet FGR Chairman, Dale Vince! After a fantastic season with Annie and Eddy producing superb match reports and giving the school the opportunity to visit FGR, our new ambassadors will have big shoes to fill! However, they have written fantastic letters explaining why they will be brilliant in the role and the enthusiasm and skills they will bring to next season. Fortunately, Dale Vince was visiting the school to promote delicious vegan food so was able to congratulate the children on their appointment. Everyone was VERY pleased!

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!

Share and Learn

March 30th, 2018

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!
