    Mock Trial

    On Monday the 4th March a group of Y6's took part in a mock trial at the Stroud Council Chambers in Ebley. This coincided with their crime & punishment topic perfectly. They had been given a trial a few months beforehand and had taken on individual roles as part of a defence team. On the day they competed against another school who were the prosecution. The children had worked really hard on their roles and spoke very eloquently. All of this work paid off as the defence won the case!!

    Tuesday 20th February

    As part of our new geography topic we were lucky enough to go and visit Brimscombe Port and meet two Stroud District Councillors. They spoke to us about the history of the site and how it has changed over time. They also gave us an insight into the new redevelopment of the area including the planning issues that new developments have to overcome.

    Gloucester Prison

    As part of our Crime & Punishment topic Owls had the opportunity to visit Gloucester Prison. We were greeted by ex-prison governor Steve, who took us on a fantastic tour through the prison. We learnt about how the prison had changed through the ages and what it was like for inmates in each age.



    Pupils started our Design and Technology topic. This term, pupils will design and make their own fabric Christmas decorations.


    Today, pupils designed their decorations and practiced threading a needle.


    They did a great job!

    Tuesday 21st November

    In geography we have been looking at the Caribbean. Today we looked at the climate and produced a scripted news report about two hurricanes that hit the area in 2017. We then performed these for the class.

    Cheltenham Literacy Festival


    Owls travelled to Cheltenham to attend the literacy festival. A main part of the day was them enjoying a workshop led by acclaimed author Christopher Edge. Christopher explained his thought process when writing his books and talked to the children about how to build suspense in their stories. We were even lucky enough to receive 2 signed copies of his latest book, 'Escape Room'. Owls were then free to enjoy other aspects of the festival.





    Here is the portrait that Owls tried to recreate:

    Here is the artwork by Owls class. They used texture to establish TONE.
