Tenbury Academy wins the Tesco bid!
Great news! We have been successful in gaining the top fundraising amount of £4000 from the bucket and token scheme in Tesco. This means we are well on the way to raising enough money for our all-weather track around the school field. Our PTFA are busy raising money from various events, including our school fete which will take place on 14th June, and we are hoping to have raised the full amount by the end of the summer term. A big thank you to Tesco for their generosity and to everyone who has supported us by putting their tokens in our bucket!
Olympian Visit - 11th October 2018
Everyone had an amazing day when Lizzy Yarnold, twice Olympic Champion in the Skeleton, visited our school. She gave an inspirational talk in assembly, encouraging all of us to show courage and determination and follow our dreams! She then encouraged and motivated our pupils as each class completed sponsored fitness circuits - we are trying to raise as much money as possible to have an all-weather track installed around our school field so that we can run the Daily Mile all year round. We were lucky enough to spend the whole day with Lizzy (and her two Olympic gold medals) and then gave her a flag-waving enthusiastic send-off at the end of the day! We hope the photos give you a little flavour of how incredible the day was: something that we will all remember and cherish for many years to come.
We were very pleased to welcome children's author Helen Wendy Cooper into school on 2nd October, where she read her latest book 'The Kissing Tree' to our KS1 children and then ran poetry workshops in Zebra, Panda and Koala classes. The book was specially commissioned for the Tenbury Mistletoe Festival and is all about Jack the Jackdaw!
