Welcome back, we hope you had an enjoyable Easter break. As you may have already seen, we had our ramp built over the break. This will be in use from September 2019 once the fencing has been installed.
The Easter holidays also saw our wireless network across the school getting upgraded and this week we have received 30 new Chromebooks. We hope to get these into class as soon as possible for the children to use in their lessons.
Congratulations in week 1 to:Penny Lock, Samuel Jukes, Nefeli Butler, Elliott King, Amber Rawlings, Ethan Nash, Jude Ives, Emilia Taylor and Noah Bridges

T-Trak Club at the Trainwest Model Railway Show
The T-Trak Club represented the school at the Trainwest Model Railway Show over the weekend of 13/14th April, which is the biggest model railway exhibition in Wiltshire. We were the only “hands-on” model railway at the show in Corsham so our team of enthusiastic pupils and parents were again busy all weekend helping children have fun driving our trains. #awesomerailways.
The T-Trak Club members worked between January and April to build some extra modules to improve our railway ready for Trainwest. Our “Castle On The Hill” is inspired by Framlingham castle in Suffolk, the castle referred to in the Ed Sheeran song. Framlingham also played an important role in Mary Tudor deposing Lady Jane Grey so it was relevant for history lessons too. We also built a small station based on Drayton Green in west London so our trainee drivers could practice stopping accurately in the platform, which is harder than it looks. We didn’t get everything we wanted built in time, but we certainly aren’t the first project to miss a deadline: at least we didn’t overspend as well!
I’d like to thank all the members of the T-Trak Club for their hard work in the run up to the show, with special thanks to everyone who came along to help during the Trainwest show.
Please can the children in Otters Class to bring in some junk materials (eg small cereal boxes, yogurt pots, tubes etc) on Monday for model making.
Tag Rugby Festival
On Tuesday, 24 children from Y5 and Y6 took part in the Chippenham Tag Rugby festival hosted by Chippenham RFC. We were very fortunate with the weather and both teams enjoyed a full day of matches. Both teams played brilliantly with the Green team emerging as winners of their afternoon pool and the Red team playing in the winners’ pool in the afternoon and finishing 4th out of 19 schools. Mrs Douglas and Mr Slee were really proud of all the children; they were a credit to the school.
Level 3 Gymnastics
Before the Easter holidays the Yr4 gymnastics team took part in the Level 3 Gymnastics Competition. The girls enjoyed competing against other schools from across the county. There were some amazing performances. Although the team didn't place, we were very proud of their achievements, especially as this is the first time we have entered the event.
