04/05/2018: Open Afternoon - Maths focus

Thank you to all families who were able to attend our most recent Open Afternoon which focused on Maths this time around (following on from our Parent Information Evenings held in the Autumn Term).

It was great to see children and adults fully engrossed in a range of practical activities all centred around applying mathematical skills, knowledge and understanding. Some were very challenging and were designed to really make brains work hard!

We hope that the activities and resources on display gave a good picture of how resources are used in school, how children are challenged in their Maths learning and also some fun ideas for you to try at home.

Our calculation policy along with a number of recommended websites which support learning at home are just a click away under the Help With Homework page.




28/03/2018: Palm Service and Blessing of the Palm Crosses

On Monday Father Mark visited school to bless our palm crosses and to talk to the children in Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1 about Holy Week.

Key Stage 2 pupils walked to All Saints' Church to attend a service led by Father Aran. Along with readings, prayers and reflections from the children, there was some beautiful singing. Father Aran spoke to us about the significance of the cross and what we can learn from how Jesus was treated when in Jerusalem during Holy Week. Some children also placed Easter egg decorations onto willow branches as a sign of new life at this time of year.

30/01/2018: Shona McCallin comes to St Gilbert's

Yesterday, we were very lucky to be visited by yet another Olympian, this time Olympic Gold medalist Shona McCallin. She spoke about the different pressures that she faces and how she deals with the stresses on her life. The children were captivated by her assembly and asked lots of great questions! She left us with a lovely thought - "Everyone feels pressure in their life but it doesn't last forever".
