Head Teachers Blog w/c 2nd September

What a fantastic first week back it has been. All the classes have been so settled and it has been such a pleasure to walk around school and see children so enthusiastic and excited about their new topics.  I hope by now you have recieved the class newsletter from your childs teacher, do please feel free to speak to them at the start of end of the day on the playground if there is anything you are unsure about! We have a very exciting term coming up. 


On Saturday 14th September please don't forget our Gunthorpe Gala which is always a fantastic event  organised by FoGS and always raises an incredible amount of much needed funds for school. A big thank you for all those who are working so hard in preparation for the day. Ducks and raffle tickets are still avaliable to purchase on the playground.


On Sunday 15th September we have been asked by Rev Simon Jones if as a school we would like to be part of the OneLIFE Songs of Praise service they are holiday at the church.  OneLIFE is a group of Bishops and church leaders from the North of England, led by the Archbishop of York, John Sentamu. I would love to be able to bring a group of children to sing one or two of the schools favourite songs. If you are free to attend please sign up so we know if we have enough children free here

More details about the event can be found here
