MacMillan Coffee Morning – 25th September 2015

Today Rawlings Court held a Coffee Morning in aid of MacMillan Cancer Support and two children from each class went to support the charity. The children all enjoyed a drink of juice and a piece of lovely homemade cake as well as a chat with the other supporters. The coffee morning was a great success raising over £400 for MacMillan Cancer Support.

Harvest Festival – Wednesday 23rd September 2015

IMG_3423 IMG_3424 IMG_3418 IMG_3419 The Harvest Festival was a great success, with a fantastic amount of produce brought in by the children. Some of the produce had been purchased but there was a lot which had been either grown or made by the children. In the afternoon the produce was delivered to the Senior Citizens around the village by the Year 6 children. IMG_3422

Girls’ Football Tournament – Ruddington St. Peters 19th September 2015

On Saturday 19th September our super girls took part in the Rushcliffe Schools 7 -a-side tournament.

We were in a group with Abbey Road, Keyworth, Cotgrave C of E and Greythorn Drive.

After some amazing performances, including a 2-0 win against Greythorn Drive, we finished joint second in our group, narrowly missing out on a place in the semi-finals.

It was great to have so many parents there to give us wonderful support and many commented on how much progress the girls had made and how impressive they looked as a team! The girls understood their positions well, kept their shape, moved the ball well and defended solidly. In only her second time in goal, Helen was confident and kept 3 clean sheets. A brilliant display!

It was a really enjoyable morning, played with great positivity and confidence, and our ‘coach’ Jo was extremely proud of our performance and attitude.




Cropwell Bishop Village Show

This year the school entered the Village Show in both the Single Flower Class and the Hen Eggs Class. The single flower was a sunflower from our school garden, grown by the Gardening Club, and it won 1st in the class.

The Hen Eggs came from our chickens which have a run on the field, and are looked after by the KS2 children, and they came 3rd in the class.

Outdoor Classroom

After a lot of hard work and fundraising by Friends of School we have our fantastic new ‘Outdoor Classroom’. We are hoping to begin using it as soon as possible. If you get a chance after school, please walk on to the top playground to have a look – it’s amazing.
