This year’s swimming team competed in the Nottinghamshire Schools Swimming competition this morning. The gala was the qualifying event for the final – the children swam brilliantly and finished in a superb second place. They could not wait to get back to school to show their medals! We now wait for the results from the other Galas to see if we qualify for the Notts finals. Watch this space!

Our two member sof the Rushcliffe Pupil Parliament (Phoebe and Max from Yr 6) joined children from 20 other schools for this term’s Pupil Parliament. They quizzed the Deputy Leader of Nottinghamshire County Council, Cllr Debbie Mason on all manner of topics relevant to children’s lives in Rushcliffe. Our two representatives asked questions about anti-social behaviour in Bingham and school places for the children who move into the new houses to be built in Bingham. The Cllr said their questions really made her think. You can find out more about the afternoon by clicking here on the West Bridgford Wire website.

The Rushcliffe learning Alliance Pupil Parliament (RLAPP) was established for our children through being part of the Rushcliffe Learning Alliance (RLA). This exciting project is designed to allow children in our schools to work together and experience democracy for themselves and understand the principals of how parliament works.

Two children from each school sit on the RLAPP. They represent the views of children in their own school at the RLAPP meetings. Each term the agenda is set by children on the RLAPP and shared in all of our schools. The RLAPP meetings are generally held at County Hall in the Council Chambers (this one was held at the new Rushcliffe Arena) and the children get the opportunity to present their views to Local Councillors and make sure that the children of Rushcliffe have an opportunity to have their views heard on issues which are important to them. At each meeting it is established which child takes the role of ‘speaker’.

The representatives from our school feedback and discuss the issues raised at the RLAPP meetings in more depth at our own School Council meetings. All children in our school get the opportunity, when relevant, to vote or express their opinions on things which are being discussed.

What a fantastic evening we had at this year’s Young Voices concert at the Genting Arena in Birmingham. We took 40 children this year and they thoroughly enjoyed the afternoon rehearsals and performing in the concert. By all accounts the audience also had a great time – this really is one of the highlights of the year!

A team of Year 5 and 6 boys and girls competed in a Rushcliffe indoor rowing competition yesterday. This was an action packed event and you could tell how well the children competed by their exhaustion at the end!

There were 21 teams competing, our boys finished in 9th place and the girls finished in a brilliant 4th place. Well done to all the team.

Well, nearly… Year 3 had a great day out at Brackenhurst Environmental Centre – a real treat after their show in the Church yesterday. They acted out the traditional Nativity story once again, this time with real animals! A lovely thing to do in the last week of term.

Children from Year 3 acted out the traditional Nativity story in St Mary and All Saints Church on Monday afternoon. They were wonderful – their voices and singing filled the packed church. Many thanks to all the children for their hard work. Christmas is definitely here now!
