Hudson and Tom present a card with contributions from every child to Clare Fardell thanking her for her eight years as a school Governor as well as several decades of support as both a parent and local councillor.
On Friday we had our first Jobs Jamboree and it was great. Nine parents shared their jobs with the children. The children got to learn about being an audio typist, a security guard, a dog groomer, a film maker, a podiatrist, a farm contractor, a stud yard owner, an asset manager and an aeronautical engineer. The afternoon was spent completing learning activities linked to the skills the parents use on a daily basis. Gillingstool would like to thank the parents for all their hard work.
Year 6 pupils visited Lifeskills and have fun learning to stay safe.
Lifeskills Safety Education Centre to welcomed our year 6 pupils recently. Their volunteer Guides enjoyed taking them round their interactive village, teaching them how to spot hazards and stay safe.
During their visit the children practised making emergency 999 calls, discovered and reacted to a house fire, learnt basic first aid and experienced the consequences of trespassing on a railway line – all made realistic with the use of light, sound and wind effects.
A very useful and practical morning.
Pupils from classes 3, 4 and 5 visited Bath Forum to listen to a performance by the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra.
The children really enjoyed the music and the opportunity to see such talented musicians and close quarters.
The whole school enjoyed the staff pantomime which ended our spectacular Book Fortnight which was full of special activities. Thanks to all staff for a memorable performance!
