Headmasters Corner
Congratulations to Luke Dutton for being awarded a place at Taunton School as from September
2014. This is a marvellous achievement and is testament to the hard work he has put in this year;
well done!
We also congratulate the Under 9 cricket team for their win over St Johns. This is the first time
that we have beaten our friends from across the river in 15 years and clearly shows the hard work
that the boys have put into their cricket over the winter months; well done. The Under 11 girls
pulled off a nail biting victory over Beaudesert in their rounders match this week and it was clear to
see from the massive smiles on their faces just how pleased they were.
Flexi-boarding has really taken off this term with a large number of children choosing to stay
overnight to have some fun with their friends. If you would like you child to have a taster night
please do not hesitate to get in contact with Mr and Mrs Glanville.

Fun with Geckos
Year 3 and Year 7 had great fun meeting Jai and Roshan's pet geckos on
Monday. We all had great fun playing with Alex the Gecko and trying to spot
Jumpy the Gecko, who was hiding in the leaves. We learned what they eat,
where they come from and how to take care of them. We used all of the
information we learned to write poems about geckos and draw pictures of

Player of the Year
After a stunning first season of contact rugby,
characterised by great running tries down the
wing and some awesome tackling in defence,
Otis Walker received the Coach's Player of the
Season Award for the Under 9's squad at North
Bristol Rugby Football Club. Congratulations,
Under 9 Cricket Team
The Under 9 cricket team continue to impress with a thrilling 12 run
victory over a strong St Johns-on-the-Hill X containing two Gwent
County players. TMS scored 303 and restricted St Johns to 291
with some miserly bowling with Peter Banks, Archie Symonds and
Freddie Cooper all bowling effectively. Jake Wakeling won the Man
of the Match award for his 3 over spell of 1 wicket for 5 runs. He
captained the side very well and led from the front. This is the first
time we have beaten St Johns in cricket for a long time! The Under
9s won their first match against Wycliffe by 9 runs. Keep it up!
Celebrating Reading in the Holidays
A HUGE thank you to all of the 44 children who took part in the
Readathon sponsored read for the charities: Roald Dahls
Marvellous Childrens Charity, Clic Sargent and Together for Short
Lives. You raised a record 817 for these charities. This is a
phenomenal effort and we thank you all so much. We also hope that
you have enjoyed the reading you have done over 157 books read
in all, with some children reading over 2000 pages during the
holidays. I think you are all a great credit to this school and I know
your money will be put to very good use in all three of the charities
we have supported. You know that you and your families and friends
have helped to make the lives of children who are unwell, and their
families who support them. more comfortable and pleasurable. Well
