On Wednesday 20th March 2019, Jamaica Class went on an exciting visit to Tattershall Farm Park. Whilst at the Farm, we were able to hold a variety of different farm animals, including tortoises, bearded dragons and a 12 day old lamb! We found out about all the different animals on the farm, fed them and stroked them. We then found out all about farms, and what a day on the farm looks like. We finished the day with taking the goats for a walk around the farm!
Gosberton managed two draws and two defeats in a very competitive group. The children were a credit to the school and worked hard in difficult conditions throughout all four matches. All the players are in their first year of representing the school in these hockey tournaments and are going from strength to strength with each game they play. The final tournament of the year takes place on Friday 3rd May 2019.
On Monday 11th March 2019 Morocco class went to Tattershall Castle. We found out so much information about the parts of the castle and castle life. The children found the Gong farmer (dug up the poo and wee from the moat) the most interesting! We then had the opportunity to dress up and try medieval dancing. To end the day we all were Kings and Queens are designed our own crown to wear on the way back to school. We had an amazing day.

On Thursday 7th March, we celebrated World Book Day. We had a whole school focus on ‘The Day the Crayons Quit’ by Oliver Jeffers, which we linked to the British Value- Mutual Tolerance and Respect. We discussed stereotypes and how Duncan could use different colours, such as pink to colour his dinosaur. The children enjoyed decorating a potato as their favourite book character, the most creative potatoes were rewarded with a £5 book voucher, kindly donated by our PTFA. Once again, it was lovely to see many of our parents/ carers come in to share a book with their child/ children, we are always on the lookout for parent volunteers to hear readers across the school. This year, we also held a successful book swap after school. We had over 60 books donated and exchanged, which we hope we can run again in the future.
