Head teachers blog w/c 3rd Feburary

This term is flying by with only one more week- don't forget it is an INSET day on Friday 14th February. A very big congratulations to Josh who represented Rushcliffe at the Nottinghamshire County Cross Country championships last weekend and came 2nd. He will now go on to the national finals and represent Nottinghamshire. A truely fantastic achievement- we are all very proud of you at Gunthorpe.


Well done to the 5 children also recieving values certificates- Jacob, Connie, Ben, Heidi and Ella S. You have all collected 7 stickers for determination or service and have shown us all how well you demonstrate our whole school values. It was lovely to see how many children are very close to recieving a certificate so hopefully we will see more parents joining us on a Friday afternoon very soon.


On to our Brilliant book...


Infant 1- Super sentence writer: Ava for some fanastic writing today. Ava wrote all by herself sounding out her words and writing some red words as well.

Henry- for an amazing interpretation of Monet's Waterlillies. Henry chose some fantastic colours and created the background and foreground with lots of care and concentration. Well done. 


Infant 2- Writer of the week: Lauren- for putting 100% effort with her writing to create a really great polar bear non fiction book.

Georgie- for a brilliant effort in maths this week. Really pushing herself to move away from concrete resources and do working out in her head.

Anders- for being really thoughtful and considerate. He showed good manners and kindness to others.


Junior 1- Frances and Jack- for being excellent buddies on Wednesday morning. They shared what they knew, listened to each other and completed their work to the best of their ability.

Krishan, Noah and Oliver- for their detailed storyboards and careful choice of words to use. They took such care with their presentations too.


Junior 2- Chloe, Jiamin and Connie- for writing some fantastic pensive memories. They also took care of their presentation and really made Miss Burton smile when she was reading them.
