Well it might have been a short week but it has definitely been a fun filled one at Gunthorpe! I have seen some fantastic learning taking place and children have come back to school with superb attitudes to learning. We are all looking forward to the sunshine lasting into the summer term. A big thank you and good bye to Miss Simister who has been fantastic working with Infant 1 and our prayer team all last term. She finishes her placement today and has been brilliant, we will all miss her lots. A big welcome back to Mr Gething who Junior 2 are very pleased to see back and look forward to having with us until the end of the year.



Well done to all the children who entered the 500 word competition. A special congratulations to Connie who got through to the final 5,000 out of over 100,000!



On to our brilliant book


Infant 1- Ben, Jake and Anders- for some fantastic work on one more and one less using numbers up to 1000! They all concentrated well and finished their work quickly getting it all right!
Lauren- For writing a brilliant story about a giant, it was so creative and she drew some lovely pictures to go with it.


Infant 2- Jessie- for fantastic mental addition of 2 digit numbers when solving word problems. She finished the year 1 work and then worked her way through the year 2 ones too. What a brilliant mathematician!
Megan and Cam- for fantastic improvement in their practice SATS reading papers. They really showed they had been listening to Miss Bottrell’s advice and put it into practise!
Georgie- for fantastic reading aloud to the class during their geography lesson including unfamiliar words such as ‘area’ ‘percent’ ‘surrounding’ and ‘coast line’ you really blew Miss Bottrell away!


Junior 1- Kyle – for his excellent maths responses during a lesson on division. He remembered the methods, language and could explain his understanding. Not only that but Mrs Nolan was so impressed with your focus and concentration in maths all well. Well done!
Amber- for some brilliant writing including fronted adverbials.


Junior 2- Jaby and Tyler- for working so hard over the Easter holiday and coming back so focused and impressing Mr Tyler. They have especially impressed with some work this week multiplying decimals.
