    Spring

    Wishing you all a happy and restful Easter break! We look forward to seeing you in the summer term 🐣 β˜€οΈ

    04/04/22 - We have loved our English Civil War topic, and ended with a battle re-enactment βš”οΈ πŸ›‘

    The Battle of Thrupp

    06/04/22 - Lots of fun was had as part of our maths measurement unit. For an experiment, Miss Greenwood gave each pair a Curly Wurly chocolate bar and asked us to measure it. We then had to see how far we could stretch it! Did you know that some materials behave differently according to their temperature? The Curly Wurly stretches better when it’s warm because its molecules are spread wider apart, increasing the material’s elasticity. When the chocolate and toffee are cold, their molecules are bonded together tightly, keeping it from stretching.

    01/04/22 - Year 6 had a fabulous trip to Westonbirt Arboretum today to take part in an orienteering challenge; the weather was glorious and everyone had such fun in the sunshine amongst the ancient trees 🌳 πŸ₯Ύ

    28/03/22 - We had such a fun DT afternoon creating our English Civil War shields πŸ›‘ We used a range of resources and incorporated our original designs onto our final pieces. Miss Greenwood was so impressed with the creativity and enjoyment we exhibited! Let the battle re-enactment next week commence

    1st March 2022 - Welcome back to the new term. We have lots of exciting things to look forward to and I hope that you all have a fully-refreshed learning tank! 

    Here are a few organisational reminders:

     

    • PE will continue to be on a Monday (both year groups) and a Friday (Y6) for this term. 
    • Homework will be sent out on a Thursday, and is due back the following Thursday by 9am. 
    • We expect the children to come to school in full school uniform on non-PE days; including school shoes please rather than trainers! 
    • You are always more than welcome to email me via owls@thrupp.gloucs.sch.uk if you have any questions or want to share something that your child has done at home! For anything urgent though, please email the admin account, as it isn't always possible to check the Owls account on a daily basis. 
    • World Book Day for Thrupp School is Wednesday 2nd March. 
    • The Y6 SATs information evening is going to be held on Wednesday 9th March in the school hall at 6pm. 
    • For 'Be The Best Friday', Y5 children will be going to Forest School and the Y6 children will be led by Mr Bailey for PE. 

    16/02/21 - We had an amazing afternoon digging for β€˜fossils’ in cookies πŸͺ We used bamboo cocktail sticks and had to try and excavate whole chocolate chips from two different types of cookies, and then we compared them - it was much more challenging than we had anticipated, but also 100x more fun! πŸ•΅οΈβ€β™‚οΈ
