We were overwhelmed by how many Dads and grandads were able to join us today to celebrate Father’s Day. They enjoyed an assembly, coffee and cake, spent time in the classrooms and then took part in circus skills, mini-Olympics and golf. Year 6 Dads also helped their children to make mock blood! Thank you to all those of you who took time off work or travelled long distances to join us in class.
We have had a whole week of Health and Well-Being and the children are all energised after a very busy timetable of events which included yoga, climbing wall, fencing, cheerleading, skipping, Zumba, tennis, circusology, mini-Olympics and golf. Each year group has also taken part in a healthy eating session and a competition to design a balanced, healthy meal. There are lots more pictures on our school Facebook account.
We'd like to thank Jean, a local magistrate, for visiting Year 6 today. She worked with the children this morning to discuss British values, the legal system, court processes, our rights and responsibilities and what victims go through. The children thoroughly enjoyed the session and were amazed to learn that people can have a criminal record from the age of ten!
Well done to the children who took part in our Y5/6 football tournament this week. All the children represented the school brilliantly and played well. They just missed out going through to the next round. Our two referees for the day were both former GHPS pupils!
