What's On

We are due an Ofsted inspection any day. It could be tomorrow or in a years time we simply don't know. We will almost certainly have a short inspection which will be one day if they think we are still 'good', and two if they think we are no longer a 'good' school, i.e we are outstanding, requires improvement or are inadequate.  Because the initial inspection is so short they place a great deal of importance on the views of parents. You can express your opinion to the inspectors at: https://parentview.ofsted.gov.uk

YR6 Residential Monday 11th - Friday 15th

We have been told the children are having an amazing time, the days have been jam packed with activities which the children are thouroughly enjoying!

Science Week

As a part of 'Science Week' at Goldstone Primary School, our Year 2s enjoyed a visit from 'Pete the Pond', who gave an entertaining practical talk about pond life, amphibians, plants and even brought his pet parrot along with him! Take a look at some pictures of the event on the Year 2 page. 

Bananagrams Challenge 2017

As part of our work in improving our spelling and vocabulary, in year 6 we have recently taken part in the national Bananagrams challenge - a national event that uses the popular word game Bananagrams. 

The school competition started a month ago, with 32 children entering the tournament. Over the last month,  players have furiously peeled, dumped and created a multitude of dubious two letter words, until the competition was whittled down to our two finalists; Rae Dury (6S) and Rosie Twilley (6Y).

The final was a tense affair, filled with lots of correct uses of unusual two letter words such as Qi (A Chinese life-force) and Xi (A Greek letter), with one tile left each, it was a narrow victory for Rae by 35 words to 34, who will now go on to take part in an online competition on March 6th, from which the U.K's top 12 will be invited to London for the finals.

SYRIAN APPEAL Update

A message from the organiser...

Just wanted to say a massive THANK YOU for getting behind this appeal. We did something amazing today and filled 168 boxes of aid for Samaras Aid Appeal!
It was SO lovely to meet and make friends with other parents and there was a fantastic energy and spirit amongst all the volunteers today. 
All in all it made me really proud of our school and our community!!
