Today’s Careers Day gave the children an opportunity to come to school in an outfit that best represented a profession that they are interested in. There was a whole range of different professions, from vets and police officers to footballers and mathematicians!
Following on from whole school worship, 2 members of the RAF came in to speak to the children all about their profession. One of our pupils is particularly interested in becoming a pilot so what a great way to find out what it’s all about! Thank you to Lauren W.B for lining up the visit and to Flight Lieutenant Gareth Cone and Crewman MacGregor for joining us this morning.
Class 1 made the most of the lovely weather today by having our Class Worship in the Garden of Reflection.

Our resident Safeguarding Team and Bronze Ambassador sports leaders have joined forces this week in a new venture aimed at encouraging playground safety.
As previously posted on our website (dated 20th January) we currently provide a variety of clubs and opportunities for children to take part in during lunchtime. The two groups thought it would be a good idea to work together to further develop playground activity so as to encourage positive friendships and teamwork (following the TST’s recent Friendship Campaign), whilst also engaging the children in physical activity (in support of the BA’s ongoing physical activity programme).
Both groups are planning on regularly introducing a new game or activity to the whole school during Superstars assembly. Based on a rota system, the leaders will then write up the game and place it into their Playground and Activity folder for the children to refer to at lunchtimes. All children taking part will be rewarded with stickers and house points.
Members of Tibberton Safeguarding Team and the Bronze Ambassadors can be easily spotted on the playground wearing their high visibility vests should the children need help or support when trying out any of the new games/activities.
Please click on the link below to view the first game to be introduced next week.
The second half of the spring term is now well under way and seventeen KS1 children are taking part in our after school gym club. Our focus for week 1 was ‘Jumping and Landing’ correctly and safely along the mats and from various pieces of equipment.
We warmed up with a game of Foxes and Rabbits where the children are required to travel on their hands and feet and use co-ordination and balance to hold bridge shapes. This is a fun way of strengthening their shoulders, core muscles and legs in preparation for tackling more complex gymnastic skills as they progress through the school.
By the end of the lesson, all of our little gymnasts were able to demonstrate various shaped jumps when dismounting from the vault and jumping over bean bags.
Here are the children in action. Well done and keep up the good work.
Mrs Leaver and Mrs Gregory.
