LEGO® Therapy at GANF
GANF now has two staff members fully trained to deliver LEGO® Therapy to pupils.
Mrs Capindale from Ambergate, and Liz Kennedy-Short from Sandon, both now hold weekly sessions of the therapy at each site, and it is proving to be extremely beneficial.
LEGO® Therapy is an intervention that has begun to emerge in schools to help children with Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD), with their social communication difficulties.
Green Flag Award for Ambergate!
Ambergate Sports College have now been given their Green Flag Award!
This really is a cause for celebration following all the pupil and staff hard work, and commitment to the project.
In 2018, an Eco Committee was set up and lunch clubs were held each week, this still continues to date. In March of that same year, the Eco Committee, made up of upper school pupils, and under the guidance of Mrs Capindale, achieved the Bronze Award from Eco Schools. This was a massive achievement, as the team put into place the fundamental things that we should have been doing, the biggest of which being recycling.
Spalding Priory 1 – 7 Ambergate
Ambergate’s football team visited The Priory School in Spalding this term for a football fixture.
Ambergate worked very hard and played some excellent football. It is always competitive against The Priory and both teams thoroughly enjoyed the match.
Despite this being the first game of the term, the team were able to read each other well. Ambergate were very organised and created many chances with Reggie, Lewis and Corey scoring the goals. The pupil’s stuck to their tasks and made sure they were in control of the game.
FOOTBALL RESULT - St Christopher’s 2, Ambergate 9
Ambergate’s football team travelled to Lincoln for a football fixture this term.
All the pupils were ready and excited to continue their winning streak. Mr Maltby also wanted to keep his 100% record for the term.
The game started very quickly with lots of promising attacking play. Reggie W soon added to his goal tally early in the first few minutes of the game. This soon turned into a quick fire hat trick and Ambergate were in control of the game.
