The girls football team booked their place in the County Cup Quarter finals with a hatful of goals today – beating Candleby Lane School 12-2. This was another fine performance by the girls who just keep getting better! We will now need to wait until after Christmas to play the next tie – lots of time for even more practice…

Well done again to the girls team.

A big well done to the Year 5/6 cross country teams who took part in a competition at Rushcliffe Country Park, especially to those children who had never run competitively before. The boys team finished in 6th place out of 33 teams – well done boys. The girls team also did brilliantly, finishing a great 5th out of 25 teams. All the children enjoyed their running and we know could have given no more.

The girls football team continued their great start to the season, this time winning 5-0 against Heymann Primary School in the first round of the Rushcliffe School. What was great to see was the teamwork and effort on show as usual – and in this game the girls really showed how their passing and movement is improving all the time. Well done again to the girls!

It was great to see young athletes from years 3 and 4 competing in the Rushcliffe Biathlon competition on Thursday evening. The competition, which took place at West Bridgford School, involved the children completing a swim followed by a run. There were 8 schools taking part and the children in our team really put everything they had into their races. We have not got the final scores yet – watch this space to see how they faired against the other schools!

Well done team!

The boys had a tough first round football match in the Rushcliffe Large Schools Cup, losing 4 – 0 to West Bridgford Junior School. The boys cannot be faulted for their determination and effort but they came up against a very good West Bridgford side who scored twice in each half to knock us out of the Rushcliffe Cup this year.

Despite the defeat we were very pleased with the attitude the boys showed and we are looking forward to the next game in the County Cup.

Thank you to all parents/carers, grandparents and children who baked or bought in a cake for this year’s Macmillanlogo Coffee Morning. We have never seen so many cakes in one place! It was great to see so many people come into school for a drink and a cake and thank you to all the children who bought in money to buy something at break time. We were still selling cakes at the end of school!

We raised a grand total of £437.28! That is a record amount and we are very pleased to have raised so much for  such a worthy cause.

The girls football team played their first round leg of the County Cup on Thursday evening. It was a very tough game – away to Sir Donald Bailey Academy in Newark, the team who knocked us out of the competition last year.

This had to be one of the most closely fought games of all time! There was huge determination from both sides and the score remained nil nil until two minutes from the end when Jess poked the ball home following a scramble in the box. The girls had made it through to the second round, well done to all of them.

Dictionaries for Year 6

Year 6 had a treat yesterday when they each received the gift of a dictionary from the Rotary Club of the Vale of Belvoir.
The books are part of a project called ‘Dictionaries for Life‘ which gives local children a dictionary to take with them when they leave our school. Mr Michael Morris, from the Rotary Club, came to an assembly where children learnt about the history of dictionaries in this country. He then presented each year 6 child with their own book, which they quickly named!
The dictionaries are really useful and of great quality and many thanks must go to the Rotary club for their generosity.

Girls in Football Final!

The girls football team began the season brilliantly as they reached the final of the Autumn term Rushcliffe Schools seven-a-side competition.

2015-09-19 12.13.28

We started the group with goals – winning the first game 3-0. The next two games were even better with the girls winning 4-0 in both of them. This left one game to play – against Carnarvon Primary who had also won their first three games. It was to be an all Bingham deciding game to see who progressed to the semi final! A wonderful and very competitive game of football finished with neither side managing to score. We finished on the same points as Carnarvon but because we had scored one more goal the semi final place belonged to RMJS

The girls played extremely well again in the semi final against West Bridgford Juniors but just coudn’t find the net. The game went into golden goal extra time and it looked like penalties as the ref said one minute to play. However – up popped Maddie with her 8th goal of the day and we had made the final!

The girls took a breather and got ready to face Edwalton primary. The game started and Edwalton surprised everyone with a quick attack and scored in the first ten seconds! Sadly, despite much pressure, we just couldn’t manage to get the all important goal and the game finished 1-0 to Edwalton. The girls were obviously disappointed to lose but soon realised what a fantastic morning it had been and how well they had done to reach the final. They were all smiles again when it came to the trophy ceremony!

Well done to all the team who were fantastic all morning. They can’t wait for the next game!
