What a fantastic evening we had at this year’s Young Voices concert at the Genting Arena in Birmingham. We took 32 children this year who thoroughly enjoyed the afternoon rehearsals and performing in the concert. By the reaction of the audience they certainly enjoyed themselves too! There was a special guest who came as a surprise to the parents and friends who came to watch – Tony Hadley! The children became his backing singers and he sang two Spandau ballet classics, Gold and True. The excitement from the teachers (and parents!) certainly showed our ages…
This really is one of the highlights of the year and will long live in the memory of those who performed and those who watched.

Year 6 have been studying World War 2 this term and to finish their topic had a trip to Eden Camp in Yorkshire. It was a fascinating day and the children’s learning was brought to life my the many interesting displays and artefacts.
Our school Rotakids group organised a choir to visit theMemory Café in All Saints Church, Cotgrave. The Memory Café was set up in January 2015 as a joint venture between The Vale of Belvoir Rotary Club and All Saints Church as a Community Project to give sufferers of Dementia and their carers from Cotgrave, Bingham, Radcliffe and the surrounding villages two hours of fun with free refreshments and to help them with their memory problems.
The children sang a wonderful medley of Christmas songs, some old and some brand new. It was very well received by everyone there and a real treat to listen to. Thank children for giving up your time to practice for this!
May thanks to all the children who bought tickets for the Pudsey Bear raffle we held today. Our Rotakids group organised the raffle for the big Pudsey that was donated by the Vale of Belvoir Rotary Club. We raised £294.41 for this year’s Children in Need – fantastic!
