Sandon pupils delighted as their chicks hatch!
Sandon School pupils have been learning about the life cycle of hens and following the receipt of funding from the Edina Trust, they were thrilled with the arrival of an incubator and six eggs.
Staff and pupils took delivery of the batch of eggs from Rand Farm in Market Rasen last month, in the hope that pupils would see chicks emerging from their shells first-hand.
Silverstone Class Presentation
On the Wednesday the 2nd of May, Silverstone class had their presentation day. We wanted to do something a bit different so we asked the parents to sit in their child’s chair to experience the day through their eyes. We then had a shortened day in an hour. This was led by the children, taking each part of our day and teaching the children. Each child had a part to play in the day, heres how the day went –
The Spalding Priory School 4 v 5 Ambergate Sports College
Ambergate travelled to Spalding for what was to be a very wet, cold and closely contested game. On route it looked highly likely that the game was to be called off however rain did not stop play and both teams revelled in the weather.
The message to the players before the game was to enjoy the game and ignore the weather. Nathan Weston scored early on which settled the players into the game however it wasn’t long before The Priory School pulled away with a 3-1 lead.
The Great GANF Bake Off is back!!
You may remember last June, Sixth Form student, Andrew Higgins, went head to head with GANF Director of Education, Claire Buffham, in a Great British Bake Off style competition.

The Phoenix Academy 9 – 6 Ambergate Sports College
Once again Ambergate made the short trip to The Phoenix Academy and were prepared for another challenging game. Returning full of confidence from their 12-6 victory all the players were excited for another action packed game.
