Firstly, I would like to thank you for support with the production. I know the children are very proud of their performances and we are extremely grateful for all your support with costumes, props and rehearsing. We hope that the production will remain a lasting memory for the children and their time at Gatehouse.
Please find below information regarding the Year 6 Leavers.
Crealy Trip followed by BBQ/Disco – Friday 19th July
Please can you make sure that you have completed the consent form on parentpay and a £5 payment is required via ParentPay. The children will leave for Crealy at 9.30am and will return to school by 4pm. On arrival, there will be a Disco and BBQ for them to enjoy. Children should be collected from school at 5.30pm. Please complete the required slip to indicate whether you will be collecting your child or allowing them to walk home.
Year 6 Leavers’ Assembly + Water Battle – Tuesday 23rd July – 2pm start
The Leavers’ assembly will begin at 2pm and should be concluded by 3pm. The children will then be able to go onto the field to take part in the Water Battle! It is advised that children bring additional clothes for this event. Many apologies but there will be no cream tea's at the assembly.
Furthermore, should the children also have any spare shirts that they would like their friends to sign, then we will allow for this to happen on the Tuesday – however, they will require a clean shirt for the Leavers’ assembly.
*For those children, currently on transition to TCS, the school has been contacted and we have requested that those children who wish to take part in both days are allowed to be released from school for the day.
Should you require any further information, please do not hesitate to contact one of us.
We look forward to seeing you.
Mr Peters and Mrs Deacon

Author Joffre White's Visit to Year 5
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.
