Totally Tockington Treat
Our teams of intrepid journalists had an end of year party on Tuesday night with a Five Star picnic, created by Mrs
Duncan. Lots of traditional party games were played before and after the food with the help of Mrs Gooch and her wicked
whistle. The grand finale was a water balloon fight, which was wet and wonderful! Tom Edwards, as Editor-in-Chief, called
for a hip-hip-hooray for Mrs Duncan, which was well-deserved indeed. He then gave everybody a party bag full of lovely
goodies, which I know was very much appreciated.
I hope you all agree that Totally Tockington has had a great year with thirty children now writing for the papers and sixty-
two editions behind us since its inauguration. This was a momentous year, when the group got so big that we needed to
re-structure into two teams. We are hoping that there will more recruits to Team B (Years 3 to 6) in September, when Year
6 graduate to Team A. No doubt a cabinet re-shuffle will be needed, as we say goodbye to Helena as Editor of the Team
B paper. I think you will all agree that she has been a fantastic team leader and we will miss her. Other members we bid a
sad goodbye to are: Adassa Walker, Poppy Carter and Annabel Sheppard, all of whom have been 100% reliable and
great reporters. We hope that they will continue to write for their next schools paper and, if they dont already have one,
lets hope they start one up
National Bookmark Competition
The winners of the National Bookmark Competition, which we entered
on World Book Day, have just been announced. There were 25,000
entries and only six winners and runners-up! Take a look at them on:
http://www.worldbookday.com/2014/06/winners-of-the-national-book-
tokens-design-a-bookmark-competition-announced/. You will no doubt
agree with me that some of our own entries were just as fantastic.
We'll have another go next year! Meanwhile, enjoy using your own
bookmarks in your reading books.

Milkshake Monday Morning
It was Milkshake Monday Morning for
Year 6 this week and we had lovely fresh
strawberry milkshakes and biscuits,
which were yummy and made by our
lovely kitchen ladies. We also read the
first chapter of "Rooftoppers" by
Katherine Rundell, which was a favourite
with the majority of our Carnegie Medal
Shadowing Group for its quirky and
original narration. We highly recommend
it to you.

Year 2 had a brilliant time re-enacting the Great Fire of London this week.
Kirsty from the Freshwater Theatre Company was very impressed with their knowledge and enthusiasm.
Library Books, Reading and Summer Activities
As the year draws to a close and the library refurbishment approaches, we have asked the children to return all library
books to the library. Inevitably, some books have gone "missing" and we are anxious to recover them, particularly those
which we have had on loan from Gloucestershire Library Services, as we will have to pay for these books come
September, which will mean fewer new books for the library. The list of GLS books is attached to an email I sent to you
all this week. A handful has already been found. If you could check through bookshelves and under beds etc. for any of
these books or other library books, which you feel might have come home with your children, that would be greatly
appreciated.
There is a total amnesty on these books. If you could bring any of the named strays into school and hand them to a
teacher, that would be very good indeed.
On the subject of book loans, the local public libraries are great places to visit in the holidays and have many activities
on for children of all ages. It is important to keep up the reading habit in the holidays - hugely beneficial for the return to
school and enormously pleasurable for you and your children. The Summer Reading Challenge is South Gloucs this
summer is "Mythical Maze". The activities are free, drop-in activities and include Snakes and Mirrors, Dragon's Den and
Puppet Power workshops. All activities are hands-on and fun. The Challenge itself involves reading 6 books to get a
medal and a certificate. It is a lot of fun - do check it out on www.mythical-maze.org.uk orwww.southglos.gov.uk/libraries,
or just drop in to your local library. If your child takes part in the challenge and is awarded a medal and certificate, please
bring it in in September for your child to start off the new term with a mention in assembly.
If you are ever at a loss for what books to recommend to your children, I have reminded them of a website called
LoveReading4Kids in assembly this week, where you will find many, many recommended reads and reviews from some
of our own enthusiastic readers here in school. Another great website is What Should I Read Next? The website
address is http://whatshouldireadnext.com/ Here you type in the name of a book you have enjoyed, and it makes
suggestions about what you might like to read next good quality and very useful for all age groups.
Happy reading!

Handwriting and Presentation
The final Handwriting and Presentation Competition took place at the end of May and this time the children copied an
extract from a book which they are reading. It was interesting to discover what everyone is reading and the standard of
writing was very good. This time, we were joined by Year 2 in the competition. The winners work can be seen on the
display board in the Back Lobby. The winners are:
Year 2 : Chloe Askew for joined writing & Amy Tucker for print
Year 3 : Jacob Browning
Year 4 : Harry Huby
Year 5 : Dalis Jones
Year 6 : Adrian Ng
Year 7 : Olivia Campbell
Year 8 : Ambroise Joly
All winners received the School Scribe badge until the next competition, a certificate and a voucher to spend in the
School Bookshop, as well as two Green Stars each.
Mr Perez took part in the Bristol Harbour
Triathlon at the weekend.
