We have decorated a tree at local farm shop Tre Pol Pen. Children from both classes made some amazing decorations. The trees will be showcased in a Christmas shopping event on 5th December.
We have invested in some lovely reading diaries. Reading is such a crucial skill, not just for school but for life! Please use these diaries to record reading that has taken place at home. Celebrate the books with your children and have fun using the stickers and completing the reading awards.
Some of the parents met two of our Governors last week. For those of you who couldn't make it let me introduce you to Mr. Stephen Corcoran our Chair of Governors and Mrs. Caroline Lake our EYFS Governor. If you have any questions, ideas or comments for them then do not hesitate to email Stephen on firstname.lastname@example.org.
The next 'meet with the Governors' will be on 28th January 2020 at 1.00pm.
Why not send your child/ren to breakfast club at school. It starts at 8.00am every day. They can enjoy a healthy, tasty breakfast. There are also lots of games to play and we are investing in some new play equipment- take a look at the new dolls house!
Welcome back to school! Hope that you have had a wonderful summer with your families. We are pleased to welcome a new face to Gunnislake- Mr. Jamie Clatworthy. Mr. Clatworthy (AKA Mr. C) is in his second year of teaching and is full of great ideas to make learning fun for the children. Mr C. is a big fan of sport- especially football and will be working hard to develop PE across Gunnislake (and Delaware too). I know that you will join me in welcoming him .
Mrs Feakins is having a great time on her travels around the globe and we are all missing her. We welcome two new members of staff in class 1- Miss Marianne Wright and Miss Elowen Fleming- they have settled in well and are getting to know the children. They are great additions to our team here at Gunnislake.
We also welcome back Mrs Fraser who has returned to the office following her absence in the summer term due to a toe injury. It's lovely to have you back, Dawn!
Well done Miss Martin for being the body of our Mayest Dragon. It was a fantastic morning and great to see our school represented!
Lots of us have dogs but some children are quite scared by them. We were lucky this term to have a lesson on how to approach dogs so that they don't feel threatened by the children and the children feel more confident. What a great life lesson!
This term the children have really enjoyed our after school fencing club! It has helped those children taking part to use their Mr. Bump skills and not give up when it was difficult. A really brilliant sport to try- funded by our Sport Premium funds!
Our annual sports day was a great success.The rain held off and we all enjoyed the various races and the team point building events. The afternoon concluded with a mass dance to raise some cash for Tesco Dance Beats!
Our children have been using their artistic talents to make clay tiles for a mural to brighten up Gunnislake train station. They worked with local potter, Rosie Fiereck. The finished mural is really amazing and we are so proud of everyone who contributed to it.
We are inspired by the awe and wonder of the world.
We are bold and innovative in our approach to find new solutions to the challenges we face.
We are the best we can be.
We take responsibility for our actions in an environment of mutual respect.
