Our Topic this term is...
"Peasants, Princes and Pestilence"

Flee your fields, close your doors and pull up the drawbridge: the dreaded and deathly 'Great Pestilence' is here! Mount your steed and gallop through the dark and deadly world of 14th century Britain, sword and shield at the ready, pledging your allegiance to king and country!

Rouse your troops with promises of bloody battle and violent jousts. Read and write historical accounts, poems and tales and discover the grotesque effects of bugs and bacteria on the human body.

And if you smell a rat, my friend - get out of there!

Cross Country

On Wednesday 13th October, half of Hockney class took part in the Cross Country competition at Five Acres school.

The children showed great grit and determination to complete the mile long course.

Well done to Amber and Archie who finished the highest placed girl and boy from the school!

Great effort all!



Pillowell Rec

On Friday, the children had a lovely time at Pillowell Recreation ground with Mr Dean. The children had a great game of rounders, enjoying batting and fielding. We will be looking to use 'The Rec' regularly over the course of the year. Well done all!



TAG Rugby

The children had a lovely treat as they received a TAG Rugby taster session off Jack, from Gloucester Rugby Club. The children focused on travelling with the ball, changing direction and speed and throwing the ball correctly. Well to everyone who took part!
