Gloucester Lantern Procession
On Sunday 18th November 30 pupils took part in the annual lantern procession, which this year was based on the story of Pinocchio. It was a joy to watch the children as they paraded along the streets, carrying the willow lanterns constructed with artist, Harriet West. It was a rather a damp evening, but, nevertheless, it was a spectacular sight!

Year 4 Bread Tasting
The year 4 children tasted a variety of bread this afternoon, and the most popular variety was French bread!
We have been lucky enough to have karate instructors and a skipping instructor come into school. It was great fun!

Hopefully we will hear before Christmas if one of our designs has been chosen as the overall winner.
Y3 Excellence Project September 2019
In response to the poem "Sea Fever" by John Mansfield, Y3 created seagulls using a wire frame and a teabag paper; as well as an acrylic paint seascape in the style of Japanese artist, Konen Uehara. They used the wooden end of their paintbrush and sponges to add texture to their painting.
Y6 Excellence Project September 2019
In response to the poem "The Way Through The Woods" by Rudyard Kipling , Y6 created textile paintings in the style of Klimt- they used fabric paint to create a woodland, then stitched into it. They also created clay slabs of the woodland floor and thought about everything and everyone that might have walked across it.
Y4 Excellence Project September 2019
