Also new on the playground is a raised garden for the children in Classes 1 and Reception to grow vegetables and flowers. Thanks to a donation of £25 from Morrisons the children were able to buy seeds, plants and compost to get the garden started.

Queen Elizabeth II 90th Birthday Celebrations – 10.6.16

  To celebrate Queen Elizabeth II 90th Birthday, the children, dressed in red, white and blue, had a wonderful time playing bygone games out on the field (just beating the rain). Then the thunder and lightning came and so the street party was held in the hall where the children enjoyed cakes, biscuits and juice after singing Happy Birthday to Queen Elizabeth with 90 claps.

“Happy Birthday Your Royal Highness!”

Race for Life – Wednesday 8th June 2016

Today the whole school and quite a few parents took part in the Race for Life. The children had to run 3 1/2 times around the school field and all the children made it, although a few of the adults looked a little worn out by the end of it.

Well Done to everyone!

Rushcliffe Learning Alliance Pupil Parliament – Friday 6th May 2016

Anna

Grace Quinn and William Shore are our Rushcliffe Learning Alliance Pupil Parliament representatives. Each term, they meet up with other school councillors from our local schools at County Hall in West Bridgford and discuss issues which affect our pupils.  They are very fortunate in that they meet up in the Council Chambers where the actual county councillors meet! On Friday 6th May 2016 , Anna Soubry MP was our guest speaker. She answered questions from the children about her job, David Cameron, how she came to be an MP and member of the cabinet and even how much she got paid!  It was a very interesting experience and she gave the children a clear message that they can achieve great things if they believe in themselves.

This morning the school and parents were treated to an amazing drumming concert by the children who have drumming lessons with Adam. The children played us a military piece, followed by each child performing the Caterpillar on the full set of drums and then we were treated to a wonderful piece where the children played drums and danced at the same time.

Well Done to all you took part!
