Tysoe School

Summer term review

There have been many memorable events this term and fortunately all the outdoor occasions have had good weather. At Sports Day, children worked together in house teams, when the older children encouraged and supported the younger ones. The carousel of fun activities was followed by traditional sprints and relays.

The Summer Fete and Dog Show was well-attended and proved to be a popular community event. Dave Earle, a former champion boxer, kickboxer and Olympic torch runner, opened the event and children from his gym demonstrated their skills. Year 2 children performed maypole dancing. Many stalls and multi-sports activities kept the children entertained. The day was organised by The Friends’ and raised over £2000 for school resources, including book corners in the classrooms and to pay for swimming lessons.

Recently, the school hosted a visit by the Stratford MP, Nadhim Zahawi. During the visit, Mr Zahawi enjoyed watching a humorous performance about the Ancient Egyptians. The School Council led an informative tour of the school and discussed highlights including the field trip to Swanage.


Mr Zahawi commented that, ‘It was great to visit Tysoe Primary School and to see the progress made by Mrs Oscroft and Mrs Coates’.

There have also been many school trips to places of interest to support the children’s learning, including to Gaydon Motor Museum, Fairy Tale Farm and the Space Centre in Leicester. Music and Drama activities continue to flourish in school. Recent performances include children playing drums, guitar and ukulele. The Year 6 concert, ‘Goodbye My Friend’, was an excellent production and full of memorable anecdotes of school events, especially humorous was the nativity scene.

Finally, Year 6 had excellent achievements in the SATs national tests and this capped a happy and successful year.
