St. Gabriel's — September 2018

Message from St. Gabriel's


Please can you remind your Yr 6 parents that if they are applying to St Gabriel’s for a place in September 2018 they must post/email  a copy of their child’s Roman Catholic baptismal certificate to us or they may not get offered a place.  I think I have received most of them but there are still some outstanding.

As part of our Biology topic, Y6 have been looking at the structure of lambs' hearts. They were showed how to dissect the heart and encouraged to identify the veins, arteries and ventricles. They looked at the thickness of the muscle making up the heart. (16.1.18)

Here are some websites that we find very useful in Y6:



Internet Safety

There is a new resource for parents and carers about internet safety.  "Video guides for the free ISP parental controls".   These guidelines have been produced by Safer internet who have been working with BT, Sky, Talk Talk and Virgin Media, who have each made short video clips outlining where you can find their free parental controls, what they do and how you set them up.  

These films are available on the UK Safer Internet Centre website and you can embed the films if you want to use them or download them.  See .  Do please make use of them and let people know about them.     The ISPs have committed to keeping these films updated, and if you embed the films on your site, we are able to update them for you if they change
