There’s a lion on the loose

Today Eagles had the pleasure of working with Julie Fowler to create fantastic pieces of clay. The children worked hard throughout the afternoon to great there own very individual lion, inspired by the story ‘a rumble in the jungle’ and by all their recent work on Kenya. Check out the pictures to see how they got on.


Netball team takes giant strides forward

Gastrells’ Y5/6 team today competed against Croft and Woodchester primary. Having only trained 4 times together and with many players new to the sport Gastrells performed excellently improving significantly throughout the two games, however they unfortunately came out on the wrong side of defeat in both games.
All the children played well with captain Erin leading the way in both defence and attack, Isla impressed showing boundless energy throughout and making numerous passes. Mea and Taibian showed that they were a force to be reckoned with in defence making several vital interceptions and finally a special mention to Kai, Gemma and Evie who all performed impressively for only their first game for Gastrells. Well done to all involved, see you all at training on Monday (or tomorrow morning), if anyone is keen to join netball club please see Mr Muskett.
