We have had a fantastic time at time at the Dean Field Studies Centre in the Forest of Dean. The Year 5 and Year 6 pupils lived out our values of Partnership, Inclusion and Excellence throughout the time we were there. We were so impressed how well they worked with each other to help everyone do their best. Thank you parents for enabling your children to attend this educational visit. I am also very grateful to Mr Jade and Miss Heeley for all your energy throughout each day and night to keep the children happy and safe. Thanks also to Mrs Redwood for all the advance organsition and administration.
Congratulations to Lucas in Year 6! Our school entered a National Poetry writing competition organsied by the Rotary Club. The challenge was to write a poem inspired by the upcoming marriage of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. Lucas’ poem was selected as the regional winner from the South West. His poem will now be judged with other s from around the country to the National Final. A copy of the poem has already been sent to Prince Harry and Megham for them to enjoy on their special day. Very well done Lucas!

Congratulations to our Year 6 Spelling Bee Champions! Out Year 6 team competed against 4 other local skills in a Spelling Bee tournament. Each pupil had to stand up in front of a packed hall of children, teachers and parents to correctly spell some very tricky words. The final round came down to a head to head spell off between a pupil from St Werburgh’s and our very own Suad. In a tense showdown it was Suad who’s nerves held together and won the competition with the correct spelling of A-T-M-O-S-P-H-E-R-E.
The rest of Year and all the pupils and staff are immensely proud of this achievement. So are the children’s families – so much so that Zubyer’s mum made the class a delicious victory cake!
