What a brilliant busy week we have had at Gunthorpe:

Our lacrosse team playing brilliantly on Wednesday- well done to Oliver, Benjamin, Joshua, Orla, Erica and Harriet for being so determined and not giving up.  They played against a very good side but demonstrated resilience and got better with every game. Joshua also took part in a cross country final last weekend and placed second overall which was an incredible achievement. He brought in his silver medal which he wore with pride. Well done Josh!

All the infants sang their hearts out on Wednesday during the Nativity and we hope you enjoyed their performance. We were incredibly proud of each and every one of them.

The 2 rock bands performed brilliantly on Tuesday morning - they have been having lessons with Rock Steady and have made excellent progress!

Our year 6 pupil parliament representatives decorating our Christmas tree for the festival at St Marys on Thursday morning and our "While Shephards Watched" tree looks brilliant.

And next week is set to be even busier with the Infants visit to White Post farm, the Junior carol concert, the senior sing-a-long, christmas dinner day and party day! 


On to our brilliant book..


Infant 1- Ava and Eleanor- for both trying really hard with their reading. Eleanor has been getting quicker with her blending and Ava has been trying to read quickly and blend words in her head. Well done to you both!


Infant 2- Writer of the week- Rhys for his brilliant first 3 pages of his christmas story. He remembered lots of detail, used great language and really tried hard with his handwriting well done!


Junior 1- Leo and Jacob- for their kind and friendly discussions in GOSH this morning. They included everyone in the group and made sure everyone was able to play their game. This meant everyone was happy before they started the day.


Junior 2- Amber- really good maths using a number line for subtractions involving decimals.
Kai- for 18/18 for his spelling test - a real testimony to his hard work and practise.

Rosie- for her fantastic work on a maths reasoning SAT scoring 35 out of 35!
