On Friday 29th January we had our first JRSO meeting with the new Officers and Steve Stevenson the School Liaison Officer for Road Safety with Nottinghamshire County Council. Our new Officers are Ethan Stephenson, Chloe Smith, Ross Ablewhite, Rebecca Bell, Rosie Dickerson and George Featherstone.
We arranged a Road Safety Assembly which will take place on Tuesday 9th February where the officers will explain about The Green Cross Code and How To Be Seen and Be Safe. Also we sorted out a Cool Kids session with Steve for Classes 5 and 6 for March and we are planning Road Safety sessions with Key Stage One and Classes 3 and 4.
All in all, the Road Safety Officers will be very busy helping to teach the children how to be safe near roads.
It’s official, Christmas is nearly here!
That’s how everyone felt after watching the fantastic production of the Nativity by Key Stage One. Once again Mr Lee and the Key Stage One staff have worked extremely hard to produce an amazing Nativity. All the children were wonderful, with lovely singing and dancing and Class 2 taking on the lead roles and learning an incredible amount of lines.
A huge round of applause to everyone involved. Well Done!

Two teams of Year 5 and 6 children took part in the Rushcliffe Mini Biathlon Event at West Bridgford school today. There was a team of 4 girls and a team of 4 boys and they each swam 25 metres followed by a 200 metre sprint run. The teams did a great job at representing the school, the results will be published in due course.
On Friday 16th October two members of our school council went to County Hall for a meeting of the Rushcliffe Learning Alliance Pupil Parliament. Children from local schools meet up as representatives to discuss various issues which may be happening in their schools. The children held the meeting in the Council Chambers and were taught how to debate and vote. It was a great experience for them, especially as they met in the actual room where our County Councillors meet.
This morning Alan from Music for Schools came in to give the children a demonstration on all the different Brass and Woodwind instruments that they use in their tuition in Primary Schools. The children had a wonderful time listening to and singing along to Alan while he played, some children also had a go at playing the instruments.
The Music for Schools foundation will be holding an Enrolment Evening at school on Wednesday 21st October at 3.40pm if you are interested in your child learning to play a brass or woodwind instrument.
