Young Voices January 2024

Almost 50 of our fabulous children attended a spectacular concert at Resort World in Birmingham as part of the Young Voices concert series. They sang amongst 5,472 children alongside professional musicians, performers and dance squad, Urban Strides. It was a phenomenal day, and the children represented our school brilliantly. We were so proud of them, as were the friends and family who came to be part of the audience.

Tranquility Garden development

We are absolutely delighted to say that work to re-develop our old spiritual garden has now started. Over the past few years, and especially factoring in the lockdown periods, the garden had fallen into a state of disrepair meaning that it was no longer safe for the children to access this once much-loved part of our school grounds.

The PTA have done considerable fundraising to enable us to start work on the garden, and the children have been fascinated to watch Mr Mason at work, the digger rumbling around and the vast changes that are already visible after just a few days.

Keep looking out for posts to show how the garden is moving forward.

World Mental Health Day 2023

Our Key Stage 2 children enjoyed coming together in the school hall on Tuesday 10th October to mark the start of World Mental Health Day through a session of Peer Massage. It was wonderful to see the children to focussed, calm and responsive to each other in this whole Junior School session of positive touch. You can see by their faces, the way the children’s mood was affected by this lovely time at the start of our school day.

Harvest Service 2023

It was wonderful to welcome so many visitors into school this week to participate in our Harvest Service. The new team of Values Ambassadors did a superb job of leading our worship throughout the service. We would like to express out thanks for all the donations given which will soon be finding their way to Stroud Foodbank. Thanks also go to Rev. Sue Murray for being part of our service.

Open The Book are back!

We were delighted to welcome our new Open the book team into school today. We haven’t had a team in for well over three years, so the children were excited to see the dramatisations of bible stories. We can’t wait to see them again when they return in November.

Stonecote Sharks are victorious!

We are delighted to announce that after an exciting and fun-filled day of sporting activities and races, Stonecote Sharks are the winner of the Sports Day Cup this year. Go Sharks!

Well done to all of our children who participated so brilliantly and with amazing sporting attitudes. Thank you to all of the family members who came out to cheer our children along today too.

Here are our Stonecote Shark House Captains looking triumphant!

Look Who’s Talking Competition

We were so proud of the three Whole School winners of our Oracy Competition who went forwards to compete against other children in their age groups in the Stroud Schools heat.

All three of them were absolutely fantastic, speaking clearly, confidently and with great expression which really engaged the audience and judges.

Special congratulations goes to Eloisa Pockett who won the heat for her age group and will now go on to compete against Gloucestershire schools.

Well done to all three participants for their bravery and enthusiasm – fantastic representatives of Bussage C of E Primary School!
