Gastrells Year 3 and 4 football team all played well this afternoon, in three games against other school teams at Leonard Stanley Primary School.
In a cross curricular Art lesson today, Sparrowhawks looked in detail at the drawings by Quentin Blake that illustrate Roald Dahl’s story, which we have been reading together in class this term. We looked at illustrations from different scenes in the story, and discussed how Quentin Blake uses just a few simple lines to create a picture. Pupils then chose their own scene or character from the story to depict, using a pencil sketch coloured with water colour paint. The finished paintings will be displayed in class for World Book Day next week.
On Wednesday two Gastrells teams compete in their first ever Hockey tournament, a huge well done to all involved.
On Thursday two Gastrells played Cashes Green at football, with a number of children representing the school team for the first time. Gastrells A drew 2-2 and the B team lost 0-3 to a strong Cashes team.
Once again you amazing children have blown me away! I really couldn’t be prouder of each and every one of you, all your hard work and effort in dance club and the numerous break and lunch time practises really did pay off tonight. You were all professional, in time with each other and the music, you enjoyed yourself and all danced with such energy, personality and character and although I may be biased, I think you stole the show!
A huge thank you must go to Mrs Smith for putting in so much time and effort and bringing the whole dance together, we are extremely fortunate to have someone as dedicated and talented as you at Gastrells.
