On Monday 17th September, Joffre White, author of the ‘Frog’ series came to Gatehouse Primary Academy to visit KS2. Following an exciting assembly, Joffre ran a workshop with two Year 5 classes to show the children how to start writing an exciting story. Their creativity was superb!
Chris Ames commented, ‘what an amazing start to a new school year. Joffre not only inspired the children to read for pleasure, but inspired them to be future authors.’
At the end of the day, the children were able to meet Joffre with their parents.
Children from Key Stage 2 took part in the South Hub cricket tournament held at Blackpool school. The two teams performed brilliantly and were a real credit to Gatehouse. One of our teams finished in fourth place and the other won a closely contested final by 5 runs! Well done to all of the children that took part.
