Tewkesbury Primary Sports Network's Tri-Golf Festival - Wednesday, 20th September 2017
What a fantastic morning twenty Y6 children enjoyed as they headed off to Sherdon's Golf Centre near Tredington to participate in the Tewkesbury Primary Sports Network's Tri-Golf Festival. The children were split into teams but competed individually at a range of skills-driven stations set up on the golf range and putting green. Activities ensured that the skills of driving, chipping and putting were all developed throughout the course of the event. There were some special moments too: Charlie being the only player to hit the bullseye on the chipping target - on his very first go; Zuzannah and Luke both sinking thirty foot putts on the long putt activity - the only two children to manage this amazing feat all morning; Callum T and Jack hitting impressive 35-metre iron shots in the driving challenge; Oscar making a hole-in-one on one of the holes on the mini-course challenge ... and so on. Everyone had a brilliant time and when all the results were in, Tirlebrook finished in second position overall out of 8 teams. Congratulations to Callum T who was the highest individual points scorer and therefore received the award for 'Best Player' at the festival. The organisers were delighted with the attitude and behaviour of the Tirlebrook teams and hope that they have ignited a new-found golfing interest in the children who came along. Thanks to Mrs. Assheton, Mrs. Gosden and Mr. Lockley for supporting the team and well done to all the children.
Team: Ava Baker, Jack Ballinger, Peyton Bunce, Elishia Caley, Harry Clarke, Molly Clarke, Alfie Cull, Eleanor Dyball, Joseph Ferrier, Oscar Guthrie, Charlie Hancox, Megan King-Smith, Elliott Parsons, Bea Prosser, Calum Pryce, Zuzannah Rudnicka, Maxwell Scott, Luke Sherbourne, Lilia Teasdale & Callum Trust
Y4 Gloucester Rugby Coaching - Monday, 18th September 2017
We were thrilled to welcome two Gloucester Rugby Community coaches into school to work with our Y4 class. The children thoroughly enjoyed playing rugby themed games and, whilst the sun was shining, they were given the opportunity to develop their dodging, passing and movement skills. After hearing all about our School Games values, the coaches introduced us to their own values (TREDS):
Teamwork – Respect – Enjoyment - Discipline - Sportsmanship
We are really looking forward to welcoming the coaches back again for the next five weeks. They have even invited us to attend a Tag Rugby festival, organised by themselves, against some of the other schools that they have also been coaching. Well done to all of the children for making such a positive start.
