Our newly formed 4th Gainsborough, 1st Mayflower Academy Cub Scout Pack visited the group Scout Hut at Aegir and were welcomed by the Year 11 Explorer Scouts.

Easter 2021 - Art Exhibition
Everyone has been really busy creating wonderful pieces of work for the Easter Art Exhibition - please visit the 'Class Pages' under 'Pupils' to see for yourself!!
Every year, the children at Warren Wood remember Gainsborough’s link with the Mayflower Pilgrims’ story on November 26th, the same day as Thanksgiving, by parading lanterns through the street. This year the children in Birch, Oak, Maple and Hawthorn classes made lanterns in honour of the 400th anniversary of the Mayflower’s voyage from England to America in 1620, which took some of the Pilgrims from the region. They will be taking the lanterns home to display. We were kindly provided with the resources by the West Lindsay Illuminate Project.
On Monday 11th November 2019, our pupils and staff took part in special assemblies to mark Remembrance Day 2019. We learnt about the first Act of Remembrance in 1919, why the poppy became the symbol of remembrance as a result of John McCrea’s poem and took part in a minute’s silence. Some pupils also brought their artwork to share.
On Tuesday 1st October 2019, our pupils were delighted to welcome the musicians from The Lincolnshire Chamber Music Festival. The musicians were Bea, Richard and Tom who played oboe and English horn, bassoon, piano accordion and clarinet. We learnt a lot about how the instruments are played and the sounds they make.
On Thursday 19th September 2019, our pupils enjoyed seeing a performance called "Splash!" presented by Extraordinary Bodies who used circus skills, puppets, mime and British Sign Language to tell the story of a girl called Flo who goes on a journey in an underwater world.
On Wednesday 15th May 2019,, Key Stage 1 pupils all visited Gainsborough to see All Saints’ Parish Church, the Old Hall and the library. First they went into All Saints’ to experience the beautiful building and learn about what happens there. Then they walked around the Old Hall where King Henry 8th once stayed. Finally they went into the library and had a great time looking at books together. The visit was part of the Street Detectives topic and was followed up with further work on old buildings, making models and R.E.
Key Stage 2 Learn to be Botanists!!
On Thursday 9th May 2019, Sue and Carly came from LoveLincsPlants to lead a Plant Explorers workshop. They taught us the names of parts of a plant; we went out onto the school field to dig up some plants with special trowels; we drew a botanical diagram of our plant; used an identification chart to find out its name and learnt how to press it so it can be kept and used in the project with the Natural History Museum. Mine was a forget-me-not. Later in the year we are hoping to be able to visit the Natural History Museum to learn more about their work.

On Friday 29th March 2019, Sue Fysh, the LoveLincsPlants Education and Community Officer, came to explain their project to Key Stage 2 pupils and ask for their help. As a school we have been inspired by The Lost Words book, which was donated by the group, and celebrates nature in beautiful paintings and poetry. We are keen to help with the project which involves identifying, collecting and cataloguing plants which grow in Lincolnshire and is part of a much bigger piece of work led by the Natural History Museum. Sue will be returning on Thursday 9th May to help us all learn to become knowledgeable and skilful botanists.
Harvest Festival 2018
The theme this year has been 'Making the World a Better Place'. We have been learning how we can all make a change to help save the planet by recycling more and taking care of our oceans and the creatures in them. Our Harvest Festival featured instruments made from recycled materials with songs about recycling and taking responsibility for the natural world.
The generous donations of food were taken by the Salvation Army to distribute in our local community.
