What with Blue Toes and Science & Engineering Week in quick succession last term, the Gloucestershire Gazette kindly decided to make these events newsworthy. A number of our pupils from Years 2, 5 and 6 along with Mr Herring, Mrs Fowles and Mr Clements all got snapped in the process! Take a look...

Yesterday, Mrs Galvin (the school's Music Leader) organised a special Easter concert for parents of those children who feature in the School Choir, School Orchestra and who play recorders. The event was very well attended, had great atmosphere and the casual format allowed parents to dip in and out during the concert to see their children perform.

The Tag Rugby Club has had a very busy term. As well as training every Monday after school, we have also taken part in a number of festivals and tournaments.

It's here again! Our PTA open their annual competition to eager-eyed Infants and Juniors, encouraging them to peer in Wotton shop windows to look for cartoon characters or 'odd-one-out' items. Read the PTA section to find out more details...

In addition, the PTA will be holding a Second Hand Uniform Sale after school on Tuesday 27th March and before school on Wednesday 28th March. Weather permitting the sale will take place in front of the school hall. If you have any uniform items you wish to donate to the sale, please leave them with the school office before Tuesday 27th March.

Last year we held a community information evening focused on children's spelling. Parents were subsequently given a Home Support Pack outlining expectations for spelling by year group (from Reception to Year 6), resources, keywords, games and tips on how to support your child at home with this key skill.

What wonderful weather to start spring! We hope everyone had a good time. Here are some memories of the after-show party from 3pm onwards. Please check class blogs for photos taken during the day.

Congratulations to 'Marg' Fowles for winning the raffle prize of a trip for 2 to Tamworth Snow Dome!

Sun, snow and skates: the first group of the day, Class Italy, took to the ice first thing this morning, desperate to show off their skills. Of course, in the interests of Health and Safety, Mrs Nelson, Mrs Clarke and myself had to also make sure that the ice was safe and skate-worthy (in fact the Reception children were remarkable stabilisers for some very shaky teachers who hadn't taken to this ice since they were early teens!). Here's a few early highlights...

At 3.45 this afternoon, a team of men in a lorry descended on to the Blue Coat school site... all in the name of 'Blue Toes'. Check out the candid shots below.

The shelter in the background will be our very own 'skate exchange' stall! We're all very excited and anticipation is building for a fun day. Let's hope the weather holds out! At the very least, we're guaranteed SNOW...

Today our library has a certain degree of comfort and 'Britishness' about it - very fitting for a school that uses the International Primary Curriculum. This is due to a rather splendid set of bean bags that the PTA have bought for the school through their continued and committed fundraising efforts. We think the bags look great. Shortly, they'll be accompanied by some plump, oversized cushions to make this revived part of the school even more welcoming and comfortable for our child readers.
