Well done to the Year 5/6 athletics team who competed in the finals of the Rushcliffe indoor Athletics Championship. A great competition ended with the team finishing in fourth place – well done indeed to all the team.
Children from our School Council walked the short distance to the Co-op today to receive a very generous donation of £2221.56! This was money raised over the last 6 months by people shopping at the Co-op, using their member cards and purchasing Co-op brand products. 1% of all money spent in this way went to the local community causes the Co-op were supporting.
A huge thank you to the staff at the Co-op and to all those who selected our school for their donation. The money will be spent on new picnic benches for the school which will be enjoyed by all the children.
A fantastic disco once again thanks to Gazza’s Disco Hire!
Year 6 had a treat todaywhen 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 and 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.
The latest copy of our Newsletter was emailed to all parents/carers today. If you did not receive your copy you can read it by clicking here.
More to come of all other groups as soon as we collect them all!
Year 6 are enjoying their residential visit to Dukes Barn in Derbyshire. The children have been caving, abseiling, weaselling and canoeing, as well as tucking into the wonderful food at the Barn!
Here are some of the photos from the trip so far. We will upload many more when we get back to school:
Both the girls team and the boys team have been in action recently in the Rushcliffe and County Cups.
The girls came from 2 goals down to beat Sutton Bonington Primary School 4 – 2 in the Rushcliffe Cup and progress t the next round. They also played an exciting game in the County Cup against Sir Donald Bailey Academy but did not progress, losing in the end 7 – 4. Goals galore!
The boys played their first round tie in the Rushcliffe Cup against Abbey Road Primary. The boys played very well indeed and at 2 – 1 to Abbey Road it was anyone’s game. However, Abbey Road proved to be too strong and a few late goals as RMJS were attacking meant the game finished 5 – 1, knocking us out of that cup. The boys face an away trip to Claremont Primary after half term for their 2nd Round County Cup game.
Many thanks to all who supported the Macmillan coffee morning last Friday. Thanks to your donations and attendance on the day the final total we raised was £313.45.
Four boys and four girls travelled to West Bridgford School yesterday for a Biathlon competition. They had to swim a length of the pool and then run 400m. The children gave it their all and were great competitors. They were thrilled to learn that the girls team finished 3rd overall and the boys team were first, winning the whole competition! Well done teams!
