Autumn Term update

Tysoe school had an Ofsted inspection in September, and in case you haven`t heard the result I am delighted to report that the school had been judged Good in all areas. The Inspector recognised the good teaching, learning and behaviour across the school and that all groups of pupils make good progress. The pupils social, moral,  cultural and spiritual development is well catered for.

'The Leadership Team have worked swiftly to unite the staff and provide a clear focus for learning. They have established high expectations for what pupils can achieve'. 

The Autumn Term has been very busy , and recently the children in classes 4 and 5  have been focussing on Remembrance. Mr Adams from the British Legion came to an assembly and spoke about Remembrance Day and the importance of poppies. Classes 4 and 5 visited the War Memorial in the village at 11am on the 11th for a short service . Here is one poem showing their use of emotive language and demonstrating their understanding  of War.

On the battlefield there were
The voices from hell
The sorrowful sounds of spitfires overhead
A shimmering pool of tears
On the battlefield there was
A fallen family picture left on the ground
Soft tears falling down dirty cheeks
The painful punch of firing guns
On the battlefield there was
An echo of heart -ripping explosions
The taste of cracking bones
A painful shot in a cold heart
The battlefield was made of
The sound of sudden death
Bloodied bones in the shadow of night

Man`s saddest creation

The School Council (pupils) are  hoping that you will have an over- supply of pansies or wallflowers for the school gardens .They also hope that someone may be  interested in helping a small group of children once a week to tend the garden area outside reception. If you can help with either of these please let Mrs Horrocks (school admin) know . 680244
