Once again you amazing children have blown me away! I really couldn’t be prouder of each and every one of you, all your hard work and effort in dance club and the numerous break and lunch time practises really did pay off tonight. You were all professional, in time with each other and the music, you enjoyed yourself and all danced with such energy, personality and character and although I may be biased, I think you stole the show!
A huge thank you must go to Mrs Smith for putting in so much time and effort and bringing the whole dance together, we are extremely fortunate to have someone as dedicated and talented as you at Gastrells.
On Wednesday two Gastrells teams compete in their first ever Hockey tournament, a huge well done to all involved.
On Thursday two Gastrells played Cashes Green at football, with a number of children representing the school team for the first time. Gastrells A drew 2-2 and the B team lost 0-3 to a strong Cashes team.
A huge well done to Gastrells A & B team who performed fantastically well at the Stroud District netball finals, finishing 2nd and 6th. To have two teams in the finals was a huge achievement and all the children should be extremely proud of themselves.
Players of the tournament:
Gastrells A – Lexie
Gastrells B – Max
Our A team topped their group winning all 4 of their games without conceding a goal. Whilst our B team finished a close second in their group with only goal difference edging them out of top spot.
Well done to all the children involved who played with enthusiasm, skill and passion. Roll on the final where the two teams will face other group winners and second place finishers as well as each other.
A team star player – Juliette
B team star player – Freya
A huge well done to our Y5/6 ‘A’ team to played incredibly well against a very strong St Mary’s team tonight to win 5-2. The whole team defended magnificently, making a host of interceptions throughout the game. Marking was impressive from every player but a particular mention must go to Ellen, Lexie and Bella who were superb from start to finish. Max and Owen both worked tirelessly up and down the court making numerous vital interceptions and key passes. Whilst Ria and captain Juliette combined well in both attack in defence making cruitial scores before half time.
As I said to the children after the game I couldn’t have been more proud of how they all played together today, a huge well done to all of them!
