The Clementines

We are the Clementines. A reading group. Our name comes from a book we read in assembly called ‘Bears Don’t Read’. Our goal is to try and encourage children in the school to do this more and for them to get better and better at it. This group holds a lot of clubs on lunchtimes involving storytelling, arts and crafts plus lots more fun and exciting activities for Years 3 and 4. But we do have an opportunity for Years 5 and 6 to get involved as well because the Clementines will be asking the teachers for some time to ask the children about a few of their favourite books so we can order them and with help from the Librarians, put them in the Library for them to read in school.

We did an assembly for the whole school (see photo) to tell the whole school about our group and how they can get involved.

We are also making a display in the entrance to the hall so all the amazing things the children make in our group will be able to be seen by everyone who walks by. Thank you for taking the time to read this and we hope that you will be interested in the clubs and will be encouraged to read and encourage others to read too.

We took an under 10 football team to play in this year’s Nottingham Forest Under 10 Tournament on Wednesday evening. The team played really well, in their 6 games they won 3, drew 2 and lost 1. This was enough to finish second in the group and progress to the finals next Wednesday. Well done boys and good luck in the finals next week.

The boys played in the Rushcliffe Spring Six-a-side Tournament on Saturday morning and were a credit to themselves with their effort and teamwork – it was a pleasure to watch them play. We were in a very tight group with no clear favourite and the boys had a mixture of wins, draws and losses – not quite enough to top the group and progress to the semi final. Excellent effort boys!

Year 4’s Homemade Instruments

It was a little noisy in the hall this afternoon as Year 4 all played together on their home made instruments. Their homework challenge, as part of their science topic, was to design and make a musical instrument and think about how the sound is produced. There was certainly a lot of sound when they were all played together! As you can see the children put a lot of time and effort into designing the instruments and thought very carefully about where the sound was actually being produced. Well done year 4!

Well done to the winners of this year’s egg rolling competition! The competition is to roll a hardboiled egg as close as possible to the big egg in the centre of the playground. The winner from each class went through to this afternoon’s grand final, where we found this year’s 1st, 2nd and 3rd, as you can see in the photo.

Many thanks to our local Sainsbury’s who sponsored the competition by providing not only the main prizes but a creme egg for every child in the school! Very generous, thank you very much.

Ilam Day 2

Year 5 had a full day walking in Derbyshire today. After a hearty breakfast at the Youth Hostel we set off towards the River Dove. The weather was perfect – not too cold, not too sunny and best of all not raining! After crossing the stepping stones we walked the full length of Dovedale and reached  Milldale to eat our lunch. After refuelling it was time to turn round and head back, with time to stop and explore a couple of caves. Once back at the hostel there was just enough time to shower before dinner (which was lovely!).

The children were brilliant; the walk was about 9.5 miles in total but was completed with virtually no complaining! A lot of tired but happy children looking forward to their last day tomorrow. Here is the whole group pictured on their way back down Dovedale:
