Gomer girls play Bedenham

A sunny Friday afternoon as the girls football team arrived to play Bedenham girls. As usual, the game started at pace with Gomer pushing forward at every opportunity  – determined to score. With the heat making the games only twelve minutes each way, the time soon raced by. Just before the half term whistle a goal from Tanisha gave the girls the edge and a great mindset going into the break.

Water and orange segments gave the girls a much needed refresh and they were eager to get started again.

The second half started with the girls pushing on inspired by the first half goal and with Gomer having a majority of the chances it wasn’t long before more goals came, one from Issabelle,one from Katie and 2 more from Tanisha giving her a second hat-trick in two games –  earning her the match ball. The girls showed good teammanship and congratulated the Bedenham girls on their efforts.


Well done girls – Gomer is super proud of you.

Year 6 Tunneling Adventures

6VH and 6MW have been exploring the indoors! They have set up tunnels using tables, mats, crash mats, covers and benches to create a maze of tunnels and caves. Each class is divided into 3 groups and everyone had to work on their Foundations of Learning by using skills like Collaboration, Self Awareness and Resilience. Miss Holden then made Year 6 carry equipment through the tunnels and even getting the whole team through whilst holding a large skipping rope. We have really enjoyed it as these photos will show you.

“This activity is so fun, it has really helped my collaboration.”

The Foundations of Learning

The Big Write Winner (27/3/17): Owen 6MW

A big well done to Owen from 6MW who is this week’s Big Write winner! Congratulations are due because of your fantastic poem inspired by the short film ‘Lumi’ which told the tale of an alien creature exploring a planet.

[Picture due tomorrow]


Lumi by Owen (6MW)

Lumi, in the moonlight,

Chasing butterflies,

Chasing not catching.

Giving up – no an orange blob,

Blob flittering,

Lumi staring emptily,

The moon looks on!


Today, not a normal moon,

Shadows sprouting speedily,

From the confused ground.

Darkness paints itself across the moon,

Concealing light,

Creation darkness.
