Mrs Gaskell’s page

To contact me during this period of school closure please e-mail and I will get back to you.

Hello everyone and thank you for visiting my page.

I hope you are all okay; getting used to learning at home and being able to have some fun times with your family.

Your class teachers have been working really hard to help you to continue with your learning. Hopefully you are enjoying all they have provided for you – I don’t think you will have time to be bored!

On my page, I will post our ‘My Personal Best Value’ alongside other ideas for you to think about. Hopefully you will have some fun discussions with your family.

We are all really missing you and so keeping in touch is so important. I look forward to hearing about how you are getting on.

Mrs Gaskell


Our ‘My Personal Best’ theme this week is communication – a very important value that is being developed this week!

Think about your communication skills.

  • What are your strengths?
  • How can you develop your skills of communication?
  • How have you communicated this week and how successful have you been?


A thunk is a simple-looking question about everyday things that stops you in your tracks and makes you think differently. They can help you have a friendly discussion and sometime make your brain ache. There are no right or wrong answers but they can get everyone thinking. Maybe you would like to share a thunk with your family over tea.

Mrs Gaskell’s Thunk of the week.

Can you feel happy and sad at the same time?
