PGL Trip – Year 6

On Monday 10th May, our year 6 pupils embarked on their PGL adventure!  The day began with an exciting problem solving activity which required them to collaborate together in order to complete the missions.  The zip wire then got their adrenalin pumping with many children conquering their fears of heights!  After a well-deserved lunch, the children continued their adventure with the high ropes and the giant swing.  The children were really put through their paces in the high ropes activity as they had to dodge and weave through many obstacles!

Overall the most rewarding parts of the day were seeing the children encourage and support each other and (most importantly), watching them relax and have fun.  What a fantastic way to reward our year 6 pupils for all of their efforts and hard work during their last year of primary school!

World Book Day

World Book Day has finally arrived and Gosberton Academy are making the most of it. Lots of reading fun, activities and a togetherness across all year groups. Thank you to all parents for their continued support and even better outfits/costumes. #ReadingMatters

Author Book Signing

Today, the pupils were very fortunate to meet an author (Grant Koper). Grant shared his book ‘The Day Granny’s Knickers Blew Away’ and answered the children’s questions- some were in relation to what inspired him to write and who his own favourite authors were as a child (including Roald Dahl). It was a fantastic opportunity which most certainly got the children laughing and has inspired them to follow their own aspirations!

Petite Street

Tanzania class had a very exciting trip to Petite Street! The children all had a fantastic time exploring the different occupational rooms and immersed themselves in all the different roles. Some children were firefighters, police officers, chefs and doctors! The children were exceptionally behaved throughout the whole morning and were praised by the staff at Petite Street for good tidying. What a great end to the term!

Donington Community Fire Station Team

The children from Cuba and Tanzania had a brilliant Friday afternoon with the Donington fire service team. We discussed how to keep safe in a fire, looked around the fire engine and finally we burnt down our Tudor houses. We watched how quickly they caught fire and spread down the line just like The Great Fire of London. The children loved it!

Olympic Gymnast Steve Frew

Gosberton Academy would like to thank gymnast Steve Frew and his partner Malakai Mars for their super workshops today! All the children were put through their paces in a specialist warm up before attending an assembly where we saw some impressive moves from Steve alongside some of the children!
A fabulous day for all, we are certainly inspired.

We’ll Meet Again WW2 Museum

Finland Class had an insightful trip to the We’ll Meet Again museum on Monday! Led by ‘Sarge and ‘Mrs Sarge’’, the children experienced what it would’ve been like to live during the war with strict rations. We had an immersive experience of what an air raid would’ve sounded/looked like during The Blitz which made the children empathise with the people who lived through it. Alongside many other activities, we had the opportunity to see and interact with various memorabilia from WW2 for ourselves.

The children were a credit to the academy- it was an informative and enjoyable day had by all.

Athletics Competition

Well done to all of our athletes who took part in the Year 5/6 Plate Final. The team should be incredibly proud of their resilience, sportsmanship and exceptional performances in track and field events. Gosberton Academy finished 7th overall in the final which involved numerous local schools. Congratulations to all involved!

Pets Day

Thank you to all the children who brought in their caged pets today, the children loved learning all about the animals and how to look after them. We read stories to the pets and some of them even listened to some diaries from literacy! We all tried really hard to make sure we had quiet indoor voices so that the pets weren’t scared of being in Tanzania class!
