Key Stage 2 pupils were lucky enough to meet Olympic Swimmer Sophie Allen again this week!
She delivered an inspiring assembly about achieving our dreams and what success means to us.
Year 6 pupils also completed a workshop which focused on psychology, our perspective on things and coping with nervous emotion. It certainly helped our pupils as they near their assessment week!
Thanks to Inspire+ for arranging such an inspirational visitor!
The football team had a great afternoon travelling to Malcom Sargent to play in a tournament against the other primary schools in Stamford. The boys played 7 games in total and demonstrated superb skill and teamwork. Overall, we finished in joint second place! Congratulations to the winning school. Well done to the boys for a fantastic season and working very well as a team. Thank you for all of the support from the parents, grandparents and particularly to Mr Goddard for all of his hard work coaching the boys!
Last week, two mixed-year teams (Year 3 to 6) from St Gilbert's took on two mixed-year teams from Malcolm Sargent in an away fixture. In all four matches, St Gilbert's were strong in attack, scoring goal after goal. The defence was solid, but rarely tested as the goals were all scored by St Gilbert's. Thankyou to John Schofield, our hockey coach, and our wonderful parents who helped with transport and cheering!
On Tuesday, the boys finished the football season with a game at home against Bluecoat. They ended the season well with a final score of 5-1! Once again the boys played brilliantly and showed great teamwork and fantastic skills. Thank you to parents for all of their support this season and well done to all involved. Watch this space for results of the league winners!
We are pleased to finally announce that, in the autumn term, our mixed High-5 team won the Stamford Schools' netball league! This meant that the team went through to represent Stamford at the Lincolnshire School Games which took place at The Meres, Grantham on Thursday 9th March.
Daisy, Amelie, Miia, Molly, Sam, Ben and Luke really enjoyed their day playing netball in the sunshine! The standard was high but our team managed to go through as group winners, undefeated. Goal difference meant that the team entered the next round playing in a bronze-medal match which finished 4-4. Despite some excellent play, extra time saw the opposition scoring 2 goals and St Gilbert's lost 6-4. This meant that our official standing was 4th out of 16 teams: a superb achievement!
Well done to all involved and thankyou to Mr Fairclough for helping transport the players to Grantham and back.
