He has progressed so quickly and does not give up, especially in maths. His reading comprehension skills have improved since September and he always tries to read with expression. His all-round development and attitude to learning has been a pleasure to see.

Polar bears

Iustina is the best student a teacher could ask for. She is a fantastic role model and has shown maximum effort this year. She was already a maths genius and has developed her mathematical skills even further. I feel even prouder of her progress in writing and reading. With difficulties at the beginning, she has become a fantastic writer and has the skills to fully understand a text.

Glen has proved himself this year. His progress is indisputable and he is now a brilliant mathematician and an excellent writer with loads of potential to engage and hook the reader. Glen’s behaviour has improved in leaps and bounds and has become a young gentleman. I couldn’t be prouder of him.

Pangolins

Sabiha has progressed an enormous amount this year in her reading, writing and mathematics and it is all a product of her hard work and effort. She also attained the SATS results she set out to achieve despite the level of stress and challenge involved. Even more impressive is the growth I have seen in her maturity and self-confidence. She participates in discussions and explains her ideas to the class clearly.

Omer has dedicated himself to his learning this year and has produced impressive pieces of work. His writing is always excellent and occasionally magnificent, drawing on his wide reading range and natural authorial voice. He has dazzled us all with his SATS results and should be extremely proud of himself.

 

Turtles

Sumaya for her incredible effort into all her subjects. She has come so far this year due to her dedication to her learning.

Denis for his amazing effort in particular in his English and Maths. He has quietly become more confident this year and been a good role model.

Ray - has made exceptional progress throughout the year in all his lessons and is now completing some work with his friends at their tables instead of his workstation. When he has a difficulty he is finding an adult to help him solve the problem by communicating what has happened and is now accepting consequences. He did really well with his swimming and passed his Tae-Kwon-Do grading.

What an Achievement!

For over 40 years, the Imps motorcycle display team have been performing around the world.  We are proud to have one of the team attending Gainsborough Primary School.

Last year Rhyley performed in front of 8800 people 6 nights a week for 3 weeks at Edinburgh Castle for the Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo.

Rhyley has taken part in many other ceremonies with the Imps to represent the UK and will soon be setting off on his next big adventure… Rhyley will be travelling to Canada to represent the UK in the Royal Nova Scotia International Tattoo!

 

 

 

Being an Imp involves lots of dedication, discipline, team work and skill; these are all qualities that we know Rhyley has.  He trains extremely hard to perfect the challenging and daring routines.

Rhyley proudly showing off his medal that was awarded to him in recognition of his participation at the Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo.

We would like to take this opportunity to wish Rhyley and the rest of the Imps the very best of luck and we are all looking forward to hearing about their exciting adventure in Canada.

 

Celebrating Spring

To celebrate the Spring Term we decided to celebrate at Gainsborough Primary School by designing and making our own Spring / Easter Bonnets.

We all had a lot of fun creating our designs at home and then wearing them to school on Friday 31st March.

Well done to all of our pupils and families who took part in making such fantastic bonnets.

Have a look at some of our designs – which one is your favourite?

Armistice Day

To mark Armistice Day a group of year six children attended a memorial service for Remembrance day at Central Park East Ham.  It was led by The Royal British Legion and Lots of schools from the borough laid wreaths and read poems and prayers giving thanks To the fallen.





 

International Day 2016

At Gainsborough, the children come from a wide variety of countries and we are proud to celebrate our cultural diversity and multi-cultural population.






 

 

This year for international day we extended the celebration by inviting a story teller, Vanessa Woolf to share stories from the countries the children in our school come from. 

She shared stories from different countries from around the world. The children had a great time and loved joining in with the actions and the singing. The most actions were displayed in reception and the loudest round of applause was given by year 6 who were especially pleased with their chosen scary story.

Lots of excitement in Reception class , as they put actions to their story.

The older ones also got to join in the fun!

 

Reading Workshops

Thank you to all the parents and carers who attended our reading workshops. It was wonderful to see so many of you in class, learning about how you can help your child develop their reading. Our junior librarians helped make the event a success by showing families around our fantastic library.
