Well done to to the boys from year 4 and 5 who played in a Notts U10 tournament at the Nottingham Forest Academy ground this evening. They played three games in a tough group and finished second on goal difference. This was enough to gain a place in the finals, which is to be held on May 6th. Good luck boys!
Our annual egg competition was enjoyed by all as usual – especially the birds who had a treat eating up all the leftovers from the playground!
Well done to everyone who bought an egg in to roll and congratulations to the two winners.
The girls team played the next round of the Rushcliffe Cup last night and enjoyed another victory, putting them into the quarter finals. They played at home to local school Radcliffe on Trent Juniors and it was another very close game. Lots of pressure from Robert Miles in the first half resulted in a one goal lead going into half time, with a goal from Emma. The second half was more even as the girls began to tire in the very strong winds. However, there were no more goals and the game finished Robert Miles 1 Radcliffe 0.
Good luck in the next round girls!
Year 4 had a fantastic day when the Vikings came to visit Robert Miles! As you can see by the photographs, the children looked wonderful in their costumes (thank you to all parents.carers for helping them get ready) and this really helped them get into the swing of the day.
The year 4 classes had a chance to try out a variety of Viking arts and crafts, learn lots more about life at home for a Viking and the day was finished off with a huge battle in the hall. Days like this are just a wonderful way of bringing learning to life and many thanks again to Partake Theatre for supplying us with such good Vikings.
Both the girls and boys teams have been in action this week and have taken part in two great games of football.
The boys team played on Tuesday evening, a friendly away at Cropwell Bishop. This was a very tight match with clear chances few and far between. It looked likely that one goal would settle it and that was the case, with Cropwell Bishop getting the decisive goal in the first half. Despite many chances in the second half RMJS just couldn’t score and the game finished 1-0 to Cropwell. If the boys play like they did this week in the next two cup games coming up they should get some reward.
It was the girls turn on Thursday , this time a Rushcliffe Cup game away at Heymann Primary School in West Bridgford. This was another very closely fought game. RMJS went a goal ahead mid way through the first half thanks to Maddie’s goal. There wasn’t a lot to chose between the sides and Heymann managed to equalise in the second half. RMJS then piled on the pressure but some great saves from their keeper kept the scores level at full time. Extra time came and went with no more goals so the tie had to be decided on penalties.After a very nail biting penalty shoot out Robert Miles ended up winners thanks to two great penalties from Eden and Maddie and two wonderful saves from our keeper Kailun. Phew! Brilliant play from the girls and on to the next round…
Year 5 had a great trip to Leicester’s Space Centre to support their science topic – the Earth in Space. It was a good week to visit, with the Solar Eclipse on Friday morning, and the children completed a variety of activities and challenges to extend understanding of their science.
For World Book Day this year we did dressing up with a difference – instead of dressing up as their favourite character children were asked to bring in a dressed up potato instead! As always, the creativity on show when given an open ended task was marvellous – see how many book characters you can spot!
Wow, wow and wow again! As part of their history topic tear 3 were asked to create their own Ancient Greek artefact to bring into school. Not only did they have to make it, they had to research whatever they made and be ready to talk about it as if they were museum curators. As you can see by the photographs the artefacts were absolutely amazing – as was the work they put into the research.
The two year 3 classrooms were set up as museums and the rest of the school were invited a class at a time to look at their exhibits and ask the ‘curators’ about what they could see. This was an absolutely wonderful learning experience for the children. When you think about all the different aspects of learning going on – designing, making, researching, reading non-fiction, writing and then speaking and listening – it is no wonder it was so enjoyable. Many thanks to all parents/carers/grandparents at home who helped the children make such wonderful artefacts.
