Infant Activities Evening – Friday 17th July 2015

After a bit of rain during the day we were extremely lucky with the weather for the Infant Activities Evening. The children enjoyed hot dogs in the wonderful sunshine before watching Dangerous Derrick performing his circus skills and scaring Miss McLauglin and Connor with his fire juggling act. They then had a go themselves at the circus skills, as well as having their faces painted and playing kick rounder’s.

Class 5 receive a reply from the Brazilian president!

As part of their recent topic on Rivers and Rainforests Class 5 discussed the plight of the Brazilian rainforest and its endangered inhabitants.  Since they had been looking at the features of a persuasive text, they decided to use these skills to write to the President of Brazil to advise her of their concerns.

Dilma Rousseff, the President, very kindly took the time to read our letters. We were thrilled this week to actually receive a reply from her office thanking us for our interest.


Netball Match – 9th June 2015


The netball team have been practicing every Tuesday after school with Mrs Springthorpe and Mrs Simpson and last night they had their first match against Burton Joyce school. Our team played extremely well and they won 1 match out of the 3 matches played.

Well done everyone!!

Netball match report – Cropwell Bishop VS Burton Joyce

Game 1:

 The game started off with a good start for Cropwell, we were very nervous about playing against a group of tall tactical year six girls. The ball was in our possession and we had Erin and Jasmine racing down the court ready for the ball when the time came. Suddenly a great shot from Jasmine left the ball falling through the net and it was 1-0 to Cropwell!

We all jumped for joy there could be a chance!

A few passes later and we were on a roll Erin made a cracking shot 2-0 to us. Unfortunately, Burton Joyce scored but it was too late we were one point ahead as we successfully won the first game 2-1.

 Game 2

This Game got a whole lot more competitive as Cropwell had all to play for. After being surrounded by the other team Will managed to throw a good shot, but sadly the ball was caught by a girl from the other team who scored. It was now 1-0 to Burton Joyce…minutes later Burton Joyce scored another great shot. The score at the end of the game was 2-0 to Burton Joyce.

 Game 3

In our 3rd and final match it was neck and neck between the schools this was it, the final tie breaker. We were ready to go and so was Burton Joyce it was all to play for. The game started off very well, it was now or never. Burton Joyce played really well, they won that last game with an amazing 3-0.
