There was great excitement on the KS1 playground this morning. All the children were having a wonderful time playing on the new play equipment.
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.
This morning the school were very lucky to receive a visit from the Chairman of the Parish Council, Alan Wilson and Councillor’s Colin Bryant and Jan Towndrow. The Councillor’s presented all the children in the school with a gold coin to commemorate Queen Elizabeth II 90th Birthday, which the Parish Council had very kindly bought for all the children.
As part of Class 1’s topic the class sent the Queen a Birthday Card and letters and they were very delighted to receive a letter back from the queen which is now on display in the reception area.
Today saw the first Football Festival between Cropwell Bishop Primary and Burton Joyce Primary Schools. Many children from both schools took part in the festival and a very enjoyable evening was had by all
Cropwell Bishop Primary school children joined 9 other Nottinghamshire schools to gather at the National Holocaust Centre in Laxton on Monday 16th May to investigate what matters when it comes to British and human values at the first County Council-funded event of its kind.
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 afternoon parents and children from Key Stage One and Class Three were treated to a wonderful concert by the Rock and Roll Recorder Group. The group, comprising of children from classes two and three meet on a Monday lunchtime and are taught recorders by Mrs Oldfield.
Well Done to all who took part!
