Headteachers blog w/c 22nd Oct

What a brilliant week to end this half term- we started off with our fantastic values day and are so proud of the amazing art work the children produced to celebrate 100 years of remembrance . Our local curate Simon Jones was involved as the children went to the church to see the memorial plaque.  He was incredibly impressed by the children’s reflections on forgiveness whilst they were there.

We ended the week with a visit from Bishop Paul who also commented on the focused and positive atmosphere all around school- it was a pleasure to show off how fantastic Gunthorpe is! I feel like I have always been here and a big thank you to everyone who has made me feel so welcome.

On to our brilliant book. Well done to…
Infant 1- Ben- for working really hard with his reading and writing. He has become so good at reading and blending words he has taken a reading book home this week.
Super sentence writer: Lillie-Mae- for remembering her sentence and writing it all on her own! Well done!

Infant 2- Frankie- great attention to detail when producing a self portrait made of clay- photo to follow!
Jessie- for brilliant maths work with Mrs Brown. Jessie is only in year 1 and can already tell the time to o’clock and half past. She is already beginning to understanding quarter past!

Junior 1- Harrison- for both his improved joined handwriting and his work in maths all week
Evie- for her progress and care with spelling but also for being a brilliant buddy to whoever needs it!

Junior 2- Oliver- fantastic maths work using inverse operations to reason and solve problems.
Katy- for super work with Mr Gething up levelling and improving a paragraph of her writing. Really thinking about her vocabulary choices.

Finally just a reminder to have a lovely half term. Relaxed and I hope the weather is kind to us all. I hope  you are able to join us at the church on Sunday 4th November.
