Forest Football Festival – Tuesday 16th May 2017

Year 6 footballers were extremely lucky to be invited to play on the pitch at the City Ground, home of Nottingham forest Football Club. There were 20 schools playing in a large tournament with a mixture of boys and girls. The children were able to explore parts of the ground that they would never have had chance to visit such as the changing rooms, walking down the tunnel and even sitting in the managers dugout!IMG_7017 IMG_7010 IMG_7012 IMG_7011IMG_7015 IMG_7022

School Garden – 21st April 2017

If you’ve been up to school this week you will have seen the beautiful garden at the front of school. It is full of spring bulbs and set off by the flowering cherry tree and it’s all thanks to Class 1 and The Friend’s of School who planted it up last Autumn.

World Book Day – Thursday 2nd March 2017


IMG_6159 IMG_6165 IMG_6168 IMG_6169

World Book Day this year had a ‘Where’s Wally’ theme due to it being the 30th Anniversary of ‘Where’s Wally’. All of the staff and some of the children dressed up as Wally with the rest of the children dressing up as another book character. The children paraded around the hall to show off their costumes and a winner from Key Stage One and Two were chosen, each receiving a book voucher.

During the playtime the children spotted Wally hiding all around the playgrounds, for which prizes will be given out during the awards assembly tomorrow.


Pupil Parliament – Friday 24th February 2017

Our school councillors from Year 6 went to their termly meeting with other Rushcliffe schools at County Hall on Friday 24th February.

The theme of the meeting was ‘The Olympic Legacy’ and we were very fortunate to have some Olympians to answer the children’s questions about their life in sport.

We met Joanne Jackson, an amazing swimmer who won Bronze in the 400m in the 2008 Olympics. We also met Roberto Pavoni who competed in the Olympics in 2012 and who is still swimming at the highest level. A team GB physician was there too and explained her role in maximising the athletes’ performances.

It was a very interesting and enlightening session which showed the children that there was so much more to their achievements than natural ability. The dedication and commitment they had shown was overwhelming and the children were totally impressed by them.

We then discussed our future trip to London, where our councillors will be taking an educational tour of the Houses of Parliament – an amazing opportunity!

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!
