End-of-Week Review 28.6.24

A busy week ended with a joyous Celebration Worship from Chestnut Class and a very successful cake sale! Thanks to all families for supporting these regular events and it all adds up to the incredible amount that the PTA have just donated to school. Due to your support of the PTA events, we can now order a set of digital cameras and accompanying memory cards, as well as every class receiving money for purchasing their own resources. Teachers will be updating you on what they have purchased and the positive impact of this.

After the heroics of our Year 5 and 6 cricket team becoming regional champions, it was the turn of our all-girl squad (and Taunton champions) to represent Somerset in another regional final. Cornelia, May, Eva, Sammie, Sofija, Edith, Winnie, Anna and Myla all turned out in the blistering heat to compete against much bigger schools – many squads were made of Year 6 pupils. The end result was Thurlbear coming 4th in the whole county, narrowly missing out on the final by a couple of runs. We are very proud of all our pupils who attend all after school activities!


Another very busy week lies ahead of the whole school. INSET Day on Monday (no pupils in school) and then into Moving Up day on Tuesday, where pupils will spend the morning with their new teachers and TAs! I am delighted to say that Mrs Strong is joining the Thurlbear Family! She will be our Chestnut Class teacher covering Miss Kelloway. Our Stay and Play sessions have begun really well and it was great to have her alongside us, this week.

Wednesday is a very busy day! Chestnut Class have Vision Screening, Year 6 are out visiting their new secondary schools for their second day (good luck!), Year 1 are on a trip to Carymoor Environmental Centre and Year 3 are going to Quince Honey Farm! Friday is Games Festival Day for Year 6 and then we finally have a Music Celebration where pupils will be displaying their musical talents for the school.

Community News:

An excellent musical opportunity has also arisen via Taunton Brewhouse. From September, a new weekly music class is starting at Taunton Brewhouse for KS1 children.

“As well as developing the basics of following a beat, rhythm, and pitch, children will also learn to play a ‘Toot’ and develop a life-long love of music. Lessons follow the Windstars programme which evolves as they grow and their understanding increases. Supported by the Taunton Music Trust, lessons are less than £1 a week and with free use of a Nuvo ‘Toot’. Led by local music teacher Carolyn Tudor these lessons will be fun, inspiring and rewarding. Have you been wanting your child to learn a musical instrument and enjoy all that music can offer but felt your child is too young?
If you want to try it out before September there are
taster sessions on 14th August
