As part of our world book day celebrations, all the pupils took part in Achievement For All’s 100 million minute reading challenge. Lots of schools across the country took part to see if children could read for 100 million minutes. In just one week, children at Gotham Primary School, managed to read for 18,897 minutes at home! This is an amazing achievement! The winning house team, with the highest number of minutes, was Jupiter with 5136 minutes. Well done team Jupiter!
This half term we have been taught how to street dance by a company called ‘Rattle n Roll!’
We LOVED learning lots of new dance moves and putting them together with attitude and expression!
Last week we played a friendly against West Bridgford juniors to start off the new school year.
We didn’t win but we played really well as a team to say it was our first match!
Well done to all the boys who took part – you’re team work and good spirit was clear to see!
Today some of KS2 took part in an after-school Athletics competition. Children from Years 3-6 competed against each other to see who could throw the Javelin the furthest, and they also took part in a long distance running race on our school track.
Well done to Ellis who won the Javelin competition with a distance of over 14 metres!!
And Well done to Jess who won the 400m long distance running race!
A super effort from everyone!
Our defibrillator is here and ready to use if we ever need to use it (hopefully not!)
Gotham staff have now taken part in CPR and defibrillator training thanks to SADS UK and East Midlands Ambulance Service. We are all feeling much more confident about using this life-saving equipment if we ever had to!
