The Eco Team went on Friday 2nd February to plant English Lime trees along the Gloucester Road. Lord Bathurst was there and we all enjoyed learning how to plant the saplings then having a go ourselves. They will eventually replace the mature Limes that are estimated to be 130 years old. We have also been given an English Oak to plant in our school grounds.

Year 6 Sports Hall Athletics County Final (1 images)

On Monday 5th February Powell’s Primary school took part in an indoor sports event at the Cheltenham Ladies college. Schools from all over the County were there, all of which were trying to compete to be crowned sportshall county champions of Gloucestershire. Powell’s school fought hard and won by a total of 16 points. The whole team were really pleased about their efforts and enjoyed themselves a lot. William Deakin (age11) was heard to say that he had really enjoyed the experience and noted that it was all about the taking part. We scored a total of 190 points (the maximum of 720) and the other 4 teams lay behind by 16 points or more. Other pupils such as Harry Tucker said, “I found the whole thing nerve racking.” But all-in-all everyone loved it. They really liked the experience and would do it again any time.

Presentation by Tom Powlesland (1 images)

On Friday 24th November, former pupil Tom Powlesland returned to Powell's to present the school with a new triple jump mat for Sports Hall Athletics. Tom presented the mat, which was funded by a kind donation from the Powlesland family, to Miss Hall, one of the school's PE Coordinators. Both Tom and his sister Molly, represented the school in SHA and so it seemed fitting to spend the money they kindly donated on a high quality piece of sporting equipment.

Year 6 Roald Dahl Day (1 images)

Roald Dahl’s 100th birthday Celebrating Roald Dahl’s 100th birthday, the school dressed up as Roald Dahl book characters. Year 6 had a lot of good costumes. In the afternoon they did some cooking and baked Willy Wonka’s pinwheel cookies. We all had a lot of fun in groups of 6 but some people went crazy with the sprinkles. We made two dough’s one chocolate and one plain. Then we rolled them out and placed them on top of each other. Rolling them up and cutting them, they started to look like pinwheel cookies. Not all of them were perfect pinwheels but they all tasted great in the end. We used a school value and persevered to get them right. By Isabel and Laura

Year 5 STEMworks Engineering Challenge (7 images)

STEMworks Junior Engineering Challenge 2016 Royal International Air Tattoo, Fairford STEMworks is an organisation which runs activities such as workshops, competitions and awards in order to inspire young people from all backgrounds to consider careers in Engineering, Science and Technology. Mrs Follis from STEMworks visited Powell’s to talk to Year 5 about this year’s Junior Engineering Challenge. There were two challenges. The first was to design and create a vehicle that could hold an egg that would be able to be dropped from a height of just over 2m so that the egg wouldn’t crack. The second challenge was to build another egg-carrying vehicle that could drop off a ramp from a table and roll 3m on the ground. We worked in teams of two or three to come up with our ideas. After we had completed our vehicles, we tested them to see whose was the best at both challenges. The two winning teams from Powell’s were given the opportunity to go and compete against other schools at RIAT on Friday 8th July. At RIAT we were given an additional challenge to complete whilst we were there. We had to build a driverless vehicle using just K’nex, string, and elastic bands that would be able to transport an aid package across difficult terrain in harsh conditions, and then release the package. Before the challenge started, we were able to go around other exhibits at the Air show. There were lots of fun have-a-go things to try in the TECHNO ZONE. I enjoyed trying to land a plane using a simulator. We had a go constructing electrical circuits to light up a bulb and power a fan. We also made a bridge using just spaghetti and rubber bands, and a structure out of cocktail sticks and jelly tots! We even got to see a 3-D printer in action! Just before lunch we caught a glimpse of Prince William, the Duchess of Cambridge and Prince George arriving at the Airshow. After lunch, we had an opportunity to go outside to watch the incredible Red Arrows do their amazi

Chess Tournament (3 images)

On Monday 20th June 2016, Mrs Bayes and Mrs Gale took a team of 12 (with four spectators) down to Bingham Gallery to take part in the chess tournament. This tournament was played against Rendcomb Primary. Our team members from Powell’s schools very own chess club consisted of Freddie Hipkin, Joe Pauling, Imogen Roe, Ben Groves, Sam Alcott, Sophie van Thiel, Gabriel Carter, Will Smith, Ben Babbage, Louis Giles Saunders, Harshada Senthilkumar, and Charlie Hipkin. The spectators of these amazing games were Laura van Thiel, Robert Tiffany, Fred Warmsley and Asher Cole. These children were excellent supporters and played a big part in Powell’s success. The half time scores were Powell’s on 9 and Rendcomb on 3. After playing several more matches, the tournament playing was over. But in the end it all came down to the results after squash and biscuits as a reward for everyone’s good play. Both schools did well to double their own half time score meaning Powell’s was in the lead. Pupils participating in the chess tournament from Powell’s showed excellent sportsmanship and didn’t even boast in the slightest bit as everyone heard that Powell’s tripled Rendcombs score of 6 meaning theirs was 18. All around, both schools played incredible chess and most importantly had FUN!!! Report by Sophie van Thiel
