PGL Liddington- Day 3

September 23rd, 2021

Day 3 involved lots of collaboration as everyone worked together to complete the crate challenge. As the tower got higher, it became very wobbly and needed help from the rest of the team to complete the challenge. Collaboration was also an important skill on the sensory trail where they could not use their sense of sight. They had to rely on their other senses and developing their communication skills to successfully navigate the whole team through the obstacles.

The sun was shining again which meant it was the perfect morning to be on the archery range. It took good engagement skills to keep the rest of the team safe as well as plenty of perseverance to develop the skill to hit the target! What a fabulous trip everyone!

PGL Liddington Day 2

September 22nd, 2021

The second day of the residential involved overcoming challenges and conquering fears as everyone took part in climbing, the giant swing and raft building. It was great to see courage and collaboration to get the whole team to achieve their best. There was a lot of pride in their achievements! They day finished with songs and stories around the campfire.

PGL Liddington Day 1

September 20th, 2021

Everyone arrived to glorious sunshine and enjoyed a fabulous first day of the residential. After lunch, the whole class had the opportunity to take on the challenge course and zip wire. There were some great learning skills required, especially challenging ourselves to move out of our comfort zones on the zip wire! It was brilliant to see the confidence everyone was taking from achieving things they did not think were possible! After a delicious meal, wacky races were the perfect way to have some fun before bed.

Remembrance Day

November 11th, 2020

The whole school came together to mark Remembrance Day once again this year. It began with a thought provoking virtual assembly where we found out about the lives of some of the people from Avening who did not return. Many of the children recognised the streets and places where they lived and worked. Everyone then met at the Millennium Cross in their bubbles to observe the silence and the Owls read out the names of the fallen. The school council then took turns to place a cross for each of the people who died in the churchyard. Everyone was moved by the human stories of the people involved and showed great respect for their memory.

Len Hutton Millennium Football Tournament

March 10th, 2020

Our team really enjoyed taking part at Inside Football. They got to meet some of the players and mascot from FGR. Everyone played really well and aspired to do their best. Well done team!

World Book Day 2020

March 4th, 2020

Everyone enjoyed celebrating World Book Day on the theme of Julia Donaldson stories. The pupils worked in their houses to build in Forest School, sing, learn about kindness, develop their art skills, explore animals and listen to stories while drinking hot chocolate!

Each house completed a set of activities based on the some of Julia Donaldson’s stories including Share a Shell, Stick Man, The Ugly Five and The Smartest Giant in Town.

Jonathan’s Jungle brought in some of their animals inspired by stories and everyone learnt such a lot about the interesting animals. Everyone showed great respect for the animals by behaving so sensibly and quietly and therefore they had the opportunity to hold some. It was a real challenge for some of us!

Everyone had a super day and were inspired to read and explore lots of different books by the same author.

Football Festival

January 13th, 2020

A team from the Owls enjoyed participating in a football festival with other local schools. For some of the team, this was their first experience of representing the school in competitive matches. It was great to see them develop their collaboration and perseverance skills while also thinking about what they needed to do to improve their performance. They also enjoyed competing against other teams and aspiring to do their best. Well done everyone!

County Football Finals

December 10th, 2019

The team played fantastically well against very good teams in the Gloucestershire County Finals. They persevered and collaborated really well which enabled them to win two very competitive matches and qualify for the final four. Although they were defeated in the semi-finals, they congratulated the winning team and wished them luck for the final showing really good respect. The wind and rain was very strong but the team showed great resilience to continue to try and play good football. Finishing as the 4th best small school in Gloucestershire is a great reward for their efforts. Everyone should be very proud of their performances.
