open at 5.30 p.m. and categories for judging will include
lots of caged pets and even cuddly toys. Judging of dogs
will take place from 6.15 p.m. There will also be beef
burgers and sausages, so you could even eat your tea

Head Lice
Several parents have reported problems with head lice
recently. Please check your child’s hair during the
holidays to help us to minimise this problem.
We do have a leaflet in the office provided by the school
nursing team so please ask for one in order to be sure of
the best way to deal with these nuisance visitors.
I am pleased to let
you know that we
have appointed a
Miss Isanna Hyatt to
work as a job share
partner with Mrs
Giles from
September. Miss
Hyatt is an
experienced teacher,
having taught locally
for a number of
years. She has also
taught with us as a
supply teacher. We
look forward to
welcoming her in
September, but she
will meet the children
in her class prior to
the summer holiday.
Olympic Torch Day
We all had an excellent day last
Thursday watching the Olympic torch
pass the school and following this with
a day of activities planned by Class 4.
To see pictures of the day go to our
school web site: and look on
the Olympics 2012 page. Comments
on the day would be appreciated by
pupils and parents alike on our web
site guest book.

Maths competition
Four of our Year Six pupils along with Mr
Jones were unable to relax following our
exciting Olympic Torch day as we were
booked to compete in the Maths 24
competition held at Tibberton School that
afternoon. Emma Harley, Megan Rayner,
Anya Teague and Daisy Walker did very
well to achieve the runners up slot – 2 more
correct answers would have secured
victory. I was amazed at their stamina –
Gloucestershire County Tennis Finals
well done girls!
Ethan Adams, Sarah Bilsby, Oscar Parr and
Megan Vaughan have won a place to compete
in the County Tennis Final at Oxstalls tennis
centre following a mixed tennis competition at
Newent School. We wish them the best of luck
on the day.
Kwik Cricket
The cricket team of Chloe Searle/Bryn
Adams/Jack Blackwell/Georgia
Bloxham/Elliot Finch/Adam
Gillett/Joshua Kell/Jack
Matthews//Cameron Oakey and Justin
Wills did well last Friday in the Forest
of Dean area competition. They
achieved a place in the semi-finals, but
narrowly lost to the eventual winning
team. An enjoyable, competitive
afternoon was spent by all.
Children return to
school on Tuesday
12th June. I do hope
that you have a good
break with your
families enjoying
either the Jubilee
celebrations or your
holiday destination.
