Marvellous Monday 25th April

Welcome back to our Summer term. We had a fantastic first week including the highly anticipated Young Voices concert. The children had a fantastic time - there are more photos on twitter we hope to be able to take another choir next year in January 2023! FoGS kindly had some medals engraved for all the children who took part this year - they look amazing! A big thank you to Mrs Brown and Miss Bottrell for organising and taking the children.


Year 5/6 also went on a football multi-skills festival and received their certificates in assembly this morning.  Many children from Gunthorpe are part of Beavers and Cubs groups and it was lovely to celebrate with those that had taken part in the St George's parades across the county yesterday. They all received a service pebble leaving only 2 remaining before a whole school treat!


On to our certificates.


Infant 1- Layla M and Pippa were both in for their fantastic writing. Pippa for taking such care with her handwriting and Layla for writing with such confidence and independence.  Such a joy to see!


Infant 2- Bella for being the child Mrs Owen's could not be without! She is so helpful, kind but also working so hard! 

Dax and Wade were also in receipt of awards today for their positive attitude to learning and for such enthusiasm when they face a new challenge!

Junior 1- Well done to Rhys and Dylan for fantastic reading comprehension work. They had to predict and infer information about their new class text and they were brilliant at using clues they had already read about in their answers.

Rex also had a fantastic easter reading over 11 books on bug club! What determination!


Junior 2- Huge well done to Amy and Lucy for their multiplying fractions work, especially with mixed numbers.  Krishan and Isobel from year 6 then continued the maths theme with their success multiplying and dividing fractions last week.


We are very excited to have a new chess club launching tonight at Gunthorpe and have had a great level of interest! Thank you to everyone who signs up, we hope they all enjoy it!
