On 30th November Class 5 had a medieval day. All the children dressed up and during the day they did some weaving, made goblets, designed family crests and tried calligraphy. At lunchtime they shared a medieval banquet. They all really enjoyed the day. Here they are in their amazing costumes.
Medieval Museum/Battle of Hastings Play
In our topic we have been learning about King Edward the Confessor and the Stormin’ Normans. After days of practise, we performed a play in front of our parents and school on Friday 14th October, which some of you may have seen.
After half term, we came in with the projects we had been working on, ready for the presentation on Wednesday 2nd November. The projects ranged from giant catapults to shortbread. All of them were amazing, and the rest of the junior classes came to see them. As I have allergies, I couldn’t taste the food, but the feedback was exceptional! Everyone had fun making their project, even if it was small.

Gloucester Match Experience
On the 19th November 2016 we went to Kingsholm rugby stadium (Gloucester rugby stadium) to play a tournament, do the pitch parade, have a tour around the stadium and watch the amazing match between Gloucester V Wasps. Obviously Gloucester won!

On Tuesday 11th October we went to the Cheltenham Literature Festival to see A.F.Harold. He wrote a comedy series called “Fizzlebert Stump” and a scarier book called “The Imaginary” which Imogen has read and enjoyed. Holly is now keen to read it too. A.F.Harold was really funny and nick-named one of the girls "Egg Flory"! We really enjoyed our trip to the Literature Festival.
