Schoolrun – Thursday 12th January 2017


‘Schoolrun’ has landed! Last Thursday our lunchtime athletics club began where we are doing a 1.5km run ‘parkrun’ style. The field has been measured and marked out so that each week we can follow the same course, and hopefully improve our own time.

The children are encouraged to aim for their personal best and to support their peers in doing so. Certificates and awards are to be given out for completing 10 runs and then beyond!

We also have an invaluable team of volunteers who marshall, time and count and who are also to be rewarded for their fabulous contribution.

Our first saw an amazing 55 runners whose enthusiasm and efforts were outstanding and a joy to see!

Thank you to everyone that performed and a huge thank you to Mrs Blackburn for all her hard work.

Cropwell Bishop v’s Keyworth (away) – Thursday 10th November 2016

Charlie Dawn (captain), Ashton Rock, Joel Newton-Brown, Harvey Wagland, Sam Plews, Louis Spencer, Ewan Chalk, Jake Andrew, James Quinn

Charlie lead the Cropwell team out to face Keyworths team in orange, and within the first 5 minutes Ashton scored the first goal like a bullet nicely set up by Charlie and assisted by Joel’s cracking skills. Great defensive skills from Ewan kept the ball in o half and enabled Charlie to score our second goal in the 12th minute. More great skills and speed on show from Cropwell, supporting each other, talking to each other well and showing great promise. An unfortunate own goal from Keyworth took us up 3-0 but they came back with their first goal just before taking us into half time with a 3-1 score.

Cropwell team came back for a strong second half. Jake scored our 4th and 5th goals in quick succession with a supportive team build up from our goalie Harvey and Sam in defence out to Ashton in midfield and James on the wing.  Great team form!

5-1 up, we went on to test Keyworths defence with Louis demonstrating great skill and determination to score us our 6th goal. Shortly after, Jake scored his hat trick taking us to 7-1. Still on great form and reading the game well, Cropwell went onto deliver a great team effort with a pass from Ashton to Charlie who helped to set up the 8th goal for Louis for a sneaky chip in. Followed quickly by Keyworth’s 2nd goal we saw some more great midfield action from Ashton and Charlie and a final great save from Keyworths courageous goalie before the final whistle …and before it got too dark to see the ball!

A wonderful final result 8-2 from a cracking team who showed great commitment.

Well done lads!

Today saw 250 children, staff and parents setting off for a 2 mile Countryfile Ramble to raise money for Children in Need. The whole school took part in this event with some children getting large amounts of sponsor money, so far the school has raised £538 for Children in Need with more still to come. The Ramble was a great success and the weather held until we were all safely back. A big thanks to Mr Richard Barlow for letting us walk over his land and Sue and Jon for moving the horses for us.
