A trip to Oxford Castle

To launch our new and exciting topic 'Crime and Punishment', the children in Year 5/6 visited Oxford Castle. During the visit we went on a tour of the castle, found out about some interesting criminals who stayed there and took part in an exciting workshop exploring punishment through the ages.

Swing Band Supper

Our guests from South Africa enjoyed a meal prepared by Mrs Bryers and her able assistant, Mrs Crickmore, accompanied by music from the Swing Band.  It was wonderful to showcase the musical talent from Cholsey pupils, past and present. Thank you to Mr Barlow and Ms Atkins for the entertainment. Thank you to Mrs McKeown for the photos.

We have had the most wonderful week so far, hosting our visiting teachers from South Africa. We have been entertained by their amazing singing and dancing, played football with them, found out about their culture and shared a lot of good practice and training. We will certainly miss them next week.

Year 6 PE Morning at Wallingford School

The Year 6 children had a fantastic time at the Wallingford PE morning. They all took part in activities such as: trampolining, climbing, fitness, dance and netball. The event is always a great opportunity for the children to form new friendships with children from local primary schools.

It was lovely to see some of our previous Year 6 Sports Leaders running the activities and sharing their secondary school experiences.
