A fantastic selection of produce was brought into school today for our Harvest Festival. We had some wonderful homemade jams, bread and cakes along with home grown produce. There was also a very wide selection of food from all around the world, the display looked wonderful.
The produce was then delivered to the Senior Citizens in the village by our Year 6 children.
On Sunday 14th September the Cropwell Bishop Running Team took part in the Crossdale 2.5k Trail race which is an annual event. This run is off road and is by no means an easy run with a fast downhill start having to avoid rabbit holes followed by a long uphill finish. The route takes the children from Crossdale Primary School in Keyworth out to Plumtree Cricket Club and back, fortunatly the day was sunny as a rainy day would have made the course alot more difficult.
There were five children taking part in the race for Cropwell Bishop with the team coming 3rd, piped at the post by Edward Campion and Keyworth Primary School.
Well done to all of the team and if their efforts have inspired you please contact Mrs Springthorpe in school for more details. It doesn’t matter if you are a good runner or not, its a fun activity to take part in so why not give it a go!
There are alot of children from Cropwell Bishop taking part in the Robin Hood Schools Challenge and we will keep you updated with their results.
The whole school and Class 6 parents joined together to wish the pupils in Class 6 Good Luck and every success in the future on their last day at Cropwell Bishop Primary.
All the staff shared their memories of the class and Miss Woodward wrote a poem for the occasion, with Miss Robinson treating us all to a slideshow of the children when they were in her classes in Class R and Class 1.
We also said Goodbye and Good Luck to Mrs Brodie who is moving on to a new school in September and Mrs Heaselden who is retiring after 17 years at the school.
The wonderful weather that we have been having lately held on for us and enabled us to have an amazing Sports Day.
All the children took part in the Athletic Sports together in their Houses, followed by Kay Stage One Running Races and the Key Stage Two Class Relays. Each Relay was a very exciting race with every one resulting in a draw for the winning position.
The whole afternoon was a great success with Fire the overall Champions.
Well Done Fire!
