A great day at Battle Abbey with the 4 class, despite the rain. Made possible by the Quest Academy helping us with minibuses and a driver. Such good experiences for our children which English Heritage made it all so real.
Year 3 and 4 have been studying the artist Vincent Scarpace. He is an American artist. His work is regarded as colourful, imaginative and original. The pupils made observational drawings of fish (bit stinky!). They also explored using carbon paper to draw. they then designed and created their own inspired fishy art piece.
The pupils in Year 2 have just begun an art project for Scented Garden. They have been learning about the locally born artist Cicely Mary Barker, who drew and painted the flower fairies. They have begun their art journey by making observational drawings of flowers.
We love our music lessons at Gilbert Scott Primary School from learning the Ukulele, our Djembe drums to our specialist music sessions. The children in the EYFS have been learning about how the tempo can change.
Some of the girls represented the school at a football tournament today. There was some great football on show, along with some bone-crunching tackles, great teamwork and a fantastic goal from Cianna (followed by an acrobatic celebration!) They should all be very proud, well done girls.
Well done to to our first GSP pupil to read one million words in our Accelerated Reader program. Today they got a prize and certificate. Some of you are really close to becoming millionaire readers. Keep on reading and you can join the club!
We celebrated Chinese New Year. We explored and tasted noodles. We made our own version of healthy spring rolls. We used carrots, courgettes, cabbage, bean sprouts and a teriyaki sauce. We cooked them in the air fryer and everyone tried a spring roll.
Look who came to visit us all today! He landed his sleigh on the school roof and surprised the children. The delight on the children’s faces was magical. Every child was given a certificate for excellence, a class book and a class board game from the PTA. A very exciting day!
