TT Rockstars Competition : 24th Feb - 2nd March 2021
It’s happening again!
Our school has been entered into the Gloucestershire Rockstars Championships 2021!
The competition will run for 5 days starting on Wednesday 24th Feb and ending on Tuesday 2nd March 2021.
The competition is open to all children in Y3, Y4, Y5 and Y6, so log onto TT Rockstars and get practising! Last year we came 11th out of 45 schools taking part, which was pretty awesome, but I bet you could beat last year’s score! ? Are you Rockstar ready?
I challenge you to get our school into the top ten schools in Gloucestershire this year!
All you need to take part is log onto TT Rockstars on Wednesday 24th Feb , Thursday 25th , Friday 26th , Monday 1st March and Tuesday 2nd March and play as many times as you can between 1pm and 5pm.
The more times / games you play the more chance we have on winning. It’s team work, so the more children that play will make a huge difference. It would be great if you could play for 30 mins a day.
Don’t worry the weekend doesn’t count so you don’t play on Saturday or Sunday!
If you don’t have your logon please let your teacher know via your class email.
Good luck everyone. I look forward to seeing you there! Mrs Walker-Ball
Documents to support returning to school
Below are some documents which may be helpful in supporting your child when they return to school. School is going to be very different to the one they left in March but the all the members of staff are really excited to see them and will do everything they can to support them over the coming days and weeks. The children are going to do a lot of work initially sharing their experiences, their concerns and worries and we have a wealth of resources to help them should they need it.
The sector-led Oak National Academy has today launched its online classroom and resource hub. The Academy offers 180 video lessons each week for schools to use, across a broad range of subjects.

During home learning we are using the internet more and more to support us. The internet, if used responsibly, is a fantastic tool providing us with a wealth of education at a click of a button, however, some very unkind, scary people also use the internet to try and trick us into unsafe territories. To ensure we are safe online please make sure you have parental locks, parental supervision and know that site/game your child is on is age appropriate.
Below are some websites that can help you stay safe on the web.
· Internet matters - for support for parents and carers to keep their children safe online
· South West Grid for Learning - for support for parents and carers to keep their children safe online
· Net-aware - for support for parents and careers from the NSPCC
· Parent info - for support for parents and carers to keep their children safe online
· Thinkuknow - for advice from the National Crime Agency to stay safe online · UK Safer Internet Centre - advice for parents and carers
