    We had a lovely visit to the library today to find out about the Summer Challenge. This year the title is Mischief Makers. Very apt I’m sure. To win the coveted gold medal and gain a certificate and stickers children need to read 6 books….just six books!
    Happy Reading

  • EYFS & KS1 Sports Day 2018 blog08.06.18

    What an amazing day we shared today! Children in the Blue (Painswick Leopards), Red (Slad Panthers), the Yellow (Nailsworth Tigers) and the Green (Toadsmoor Lions) teams took part in our annual Stroud Valley Primary School Sports Day. The forecast was promising and we all came to school dressed for action and ready to do our best for our team. Our proud families watched as we ran, threw, skipped, balanced and jumped our way through 12 different events. Whilst our teachers added up the scores we enjoyed a delicious picnic in the glorious sunshine with our families. The medal ceremony was a chance to reward the highest scoring girl and boy in each year group and say well done to everyone for trying their hardest. The event ended with a refreshing ice lolly courtesy of the PTFA.

  • World Book Day 2018 dsc04158

    This year, the children (and parents) made an incredible effort with an amazing array of costumes. We held a’Book in a Jar’ competition. The entries were so imaginative, and a child from each class won a book token. All week ‘Shelfies’ had been displayed around school (photographs of members of staff’s bookshelves), and the children had to guess who they belonged to. We revealed the owners in assembly. A great day celebrating the joy of books.
