An exceptional performance of Cinderella by our Otters and Falcons – what amazing talent you have – wow!
Warmley Cycle Ride
On Saturday 7th June, twenty-one intrepid cyclists met outside The Tynings School for a family cycle to Warmley Station, despite all the weather warnings of severe thunderstorms and heavy rain. We set off along the cycle track and, after a brief stop at Mangotsfield Station, motored on to Warmley Station at a very good pace.
Once at the station, there was time for a drink and a treat, then it was on to Warmley visitors centre where we met Alison Catlin, the arts development officer for South Gloucestershire and Sara-Jane Arbury, the local poet who had been working with Otter class on the creation of a poem about the Staple Hill Tunnel.
We had a chance to look at poetry from Otter class as well as from St Anne’s and The Park Schools, and then Sara-Jane read the poem, “Poetry in Locomotion” that had been created by the local groups, including The Tynings School, accompanied by guitar music.
It was a great morning out; thank you to all of the cyclists, from 4 years old to over 40 years old, who joined us, and well done for a great cycle ride!
And the storms never came; it was sunny when we made our way back.
Commemoration of World War One
During the summer term, we will be remembering the many sacrifices and horrors of World War One as we commemorate 100 years since the conflict began in 1914.
Otters and Falcons are studying “The Great War” as their theme for the term and we have booked in a visitor “World War One soldier” in June to run workshops with Years 1 to 6. We would also like to make sure we are celebrating the local people whose lives were affected by the First World War and we would like to ask you for a favour.
In the Hall, we have a display board on which we would like to put photos and stories of any of the children’s ancestors who fought in, or lived through, the First World War. Please could you provide a photo and some information about the photo that we can display? We will take a scan of your photo and return it to you and we promise to be very careful with any photos you provide. It would be a fitting commemoration of our local men and women who contributed so much to the war if we could fill the display with local history from 1914 to 1918; it will also bring the story to life for the children.
Please drop your photos in to the office – if you would prefer to scan the photos yourself and email them, please send them to firstname.lastname@example.org (remember, it is the First World War, not the Second World War.)
St Georges Day
We’re captivated by The Hobbit. Another brilliant play by M and M productions.
Easter at the Tynings
