Last Friday, the hall filled with Olympic teams representing nations from each continent. Why? It was Blue Coat's very own Olympic Opening Ceremony!

Each class presented a short cultural display from their country to give us all a flavour of the participant nations in the Blue Coat Olympics. We had hat dancing to hakas; sports displays to oriental dragons! The atmosphere was electric and it was amazing to see such variety and creativity in how each country had chosen to represent itself before its competitors.

As some of the Key Stage 1 parents might've heard from their children, and even spotted in the playground last week, we had an artist (Steve Porter) who came in and worked with all of our children from Reception to Year 2. The project? Well, we felt our school hall could do with brightening up a bit and we felt that children from Key Stage 1 and the Early Years would be up for a challenge! As the Queen's Diamond Jubilee is fast approaching we thought it would present a perfect opportunity for our youngest learners to produce a real legacy piece which outlines the 6 decades of the Queen's reign.

On Saturday, the school gates opened - by none other than Liverpool FC rising star Jamie Stephens(!) - to crowds of supportive parents, pupils and community members. Alas, it was the Blue Coat May Fair. The PTA did a fantastic job of putting on a varied programme of activities that included a number of dance displays, workout classes, singing choirs... as well as a range of stalls that tantalised punters to part with their cash - all in the name of school fundraising!

Our 2012 May Fair springs into action on Saturday 19th May and we are still in need of parent helpers to make the event work.

If you can spare just 2 hours of your time to help man stalls then the day will be saved! We desperately need willing parents to take a shift from 11am-1pm or 1pm-3pm to assist in this crucial school fundraiser which usually contributes significantly to the school's annual budget.

On Thursday, a selection of our Year 5 and 6 girls had a unique sporting opportunity: to meet a female sports icon! In return, they had to participate in a friendly festival of cricket where they would play against other school teams whilst receiving some focused coaching and support from a number of experts.

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.
