Gymnastic competition
 
Today saw 29 Ellwood gymnasts competing in the Forest of Dean gym competition. All of the children represented the school brilliantly and brought home 15 medals; 4 Gold, 6 Silver and 5 Bronze including overall level 2 girls’ winner and gold, silver and bronze in the year 1 level 1 girls’ competition.
 
Miss Abbott would like to thank the children for their hard work and Mrs Beard and Mrs Bishop for their help running the gym club.
 
 
 
 
World Book Day
 
We had a fantastic day celebrating books and authors at Ellwood.  The children held book swaps and we enjoyed 'mystery reader' sessions at the end of the day.  
 
Mrs Wright would like to thank everyone for dressing up in fantastic costumes of favourite characters.  Also, Vicky Logan for speaking to the children about the local libraries in the morning assembly and Nikki Davis for organising the book fayre and half term sponsored read.
 
We managed to raise over £600 for new topic books!
Well done and thank you to all the children and parents for supporting this event.
