This week, Great Coates pupils took part in two inter-school sports events.
On Tuesday 16th April, Year 4,5 and 6 pupils took part in the inter-schools cross country tournament at Weelsby. The weather was cold, wet and windy however the children took part enthusiastically in the event and made the staff there very proud. On Thursday 18th April, a team of pupils took part in New Age Kurling event at Oasis Academy Wintringham. It was a very close competition and our team won the award for the most passionate team. They did incredibly well with a sport which was new to them.

On Friday 8th March, the school took part in World Book Day activities. We all came dressed as Villians and studied the wonderful book ‘Inside the Villains’ by Clotilde Perrin. The children created some amazing work and really enjoyed the book. At the end of the day, the childen visited a different teacher to listen to a book. Thank you to the parents for supporting the day. The children looked fantastic in their outfits.

And here is a wonderful video of the reception children singing a song about wolves.


Some of our classes got the chance this year to take part in video calls with popular children’s authors. Year 2 spoke to Joseph Coelho, Year 3 and 4 spoke to John Green the illustrator.

Harbour Learning Trust have created a fabulous video with children from all over the trust, showing why our children love reading so much. We think our children are the best!

On Friday 15th March, for Red Nose Day, the children raised money by taking part in an assault course in the hall. There were quite a few red faces by the time they had finished but everyone enjoyed themselves, all for a good course. Thank you to the parents and children for their donations and thank you to the student ambassadors, Mrs Brown and Mrs Omon for making it happen.

We are really proud at Great Coates Academy that we are in the top 10% of similar schools for our attendance. Thank you to everyone for the effort they are putting in getting their children to school.
