YEAR 3/4 TAG RUGBY FESTIVAL

This week is was the turn of the Year 3/4 team consisting of boys and girls to represent Walter Powell in a Tag Rugby Festival at Minety Rugby Club.

The team played six games in total and played with much enthusiasm, although they were unfortunate to lose their matches they remained in good spirits and most importantly they had a lot of fun and played very well as a team despite the wind and rain! We would like to thank all the parents who assisted with transporting to and from Minety for the event, without your support the children would be unable to participate.

WALTER POWELL ART EXHIBITION

All week the children have been enjoying our ‘Reflection’ themed art enrichment week.

During the week the children have experienced drawing selfies, 3D reflective city scapes, sunset reflections, Monet’s lily pads, spoon reflections and painted reflective flag bunting and pebbles. Some of the art produced this week will be used in decorating the outdoor shelter as we create our school reflective area. Our Art Exhibition on Friday afternoon gave the parents the opportunity to see what the children have been experiencing this week.

HARVEST FESTIVAL

We would like to thank you all for the generous donations today for Harvest Festival. It was great to see so many parents, grandparents and siblings this afternoon, I am sure you will agree the children performed extremely well and sang with much enthusiasm.  Thank you to the School Council for selling the produce after the service, we will advise you next week how much money was raised.

The school council chose Water Aid as the charity to receive our auction proceeds and the tinned produce will be donated to the Malmesbury & District Foodbank.

YEAR 5/6 TAG RUGBY FESTIVAL

On Wednesday 4th October 7 children from Years 5 & 6 represented the school in the Year 5/6 Tag Rugby Festival at Minety Rugby Club. They played 7 matches in total and drew 3, lost 3 and won 1 during the event. It was a great team effort and with no substitutes each match required a lot of energy and team spirit. They should all be very proud of their achievements,

We would like to thank Mr Stokes for coaching the team during the event and for the many parents who assisted with transport, without your support these events would not be possible to attend.

YEAR 5/6 FOOTBALL FESTIVAL

On Monday 25th September 13 children from Years 5 /6 took part in a Football Festival in Malmesbury. The boys and girls competed in separate competitions against 6 local schools. They all played with great enthusiasm, good sportsmanship and represented the school very well indeed.

A trophy was awarded to the girls’ team for exceptional team spirit and effort and as this was the first time we have entered a girls’ team into this competition in many years!

Well done to all of you.

We would like to thank Mr Neville for kindly coaching the team and to all the parents for their assistance in transporting the children to and from the festival.
