Welcome back!

A big warm welcome back to both those families returning this September and lots of new families.  We hope the start of term has felt smooth, the atmosphere around school is absolutely wonderful.  The buzz of learning and children enjoying being back without bubbles is truely special.


This week we have started by thinking about what a habit is and how developing helpful healthy habits can change us to become the best possible version of ourself.  Each week this half term we will look at a different value so the children can get a good idea of what is at the heart of our school.  


Over the summer we had a significant amount of building work to the front entrance.  This is now nearly complete but we hope you agree it looks really smart.  It has also created a really lovely open space for children to work when teachers need a break out room or space for small groups.  


On the playground we used to have one circular bench that had seen far better days- sadly it fell apart! A big thank you to FoGS who have kindly funded the replacement of 2 lovely big benches.  They look great and are already being used at playtime and dinner time.


Classes are already straight into their new topics and every class should have sent out a newsletter now letting you know what your child will be learning about.  Please do use class email addresses to stay in touch with teachers if you are not able to catch them at the start or end of the school day.


We look forward to a fantastic year at Gunthorpe.
