This year’s Spoken English competition once again gave us a an entertaining afternoon. Ten children gave us a diverse collections of talks and the judges had a very difficult job of finding a winner. Aster much deliberation this year’s winner was a fascinating talk about Fibonacci numbers – it educated and entertained in equal portions and was a well deserved winner. Well done to all the ten children in the final who spoke so wonderfully.

This year’s winner:

Our school librarians have been wonderful this year and they treated to an end of year shopping trip to Waterstones to buy some new fiction books for next year. They were joined by the 4 winners of this year’s World Book Day competition. All the children were allowed to choose 6 books each – nothing is more highly prized than a book another pupil recommends and the new books will be in high demand in September.

Year 6 had a chance to practice their best French and in return received a slap up  breakfast! Croissants, baguettes and pains au chocolat were washed down with drinking chocolate – but only if the children welcomed, ordered and thanked in French. Tres bien!

A big well done to our athletics team who finished in second place in this year’s Bingham and District Primary School Sports competition. The competition saw children compete in long jump, shot putt, javelin, sprints, distance and relays.  All the children in the team from both Robert Miles Juniors and Infants  performed at their very best and it was a pleasure to spent a sunny afternoon at the athletics track watching the event. We were pipped to first place by Carnarvon Primary – the smallest of margins once again!

Well done team – your efforts are appreciated!

Three of our top teams from last week’s Science and Technology competition took their models to West Bridgford School to compete against other primary schools who had completed the same challenge in their own schools.

After an exciting afternoon’s racing our children were thrilled with the results with our teams finishing in 4th, 2nd and 1st position! The winners were very pleased indeed as their model disintegrated in the school competition and never got to the start line for our finals. They made up for that with three excellent runs in this Grand Final and the boys were very proud of their trophy.

A choir of RMJS children sang with the Bingham Wind Orchestra on Saturday evening to raise money for the Nottingham Children’s Hospital Big Appeal. The theme of the concert was Superheroes and took place in St Mary and All Saints Church. The Bingham Wind Orchestra is a community orchestra who practise in our hall every Wedensday evening and are conducted by Mr Parnell, our music teacher. It was a most enjoyable evening and a great experience for the children to sing with a full band behind them! They had learnt several songs related to the Superhero theme and the finale was a nine minute trip through many of our favourite Disney movies. Well done to all the children and for all those parents who supported the concert.

It was a hot one but we managed to go ahead with Sports Day as planned and it was great to see so many parents and  relations coming to watch.All  the children competed for their House teams – Jupiter were hoping for a record 4 wins on the trot. The first part of the afternoon consisted of team events, the children moved round to complete all manner of different races. This was followed by the finals of the obstacle races, the distance races, sprints and relays. Once the results were in and the medals handed out the children and parents waited to see the overall result. In joint third place were Jupiter and Mercury, in second place Neptune and in first place was Saturn, who have not won for a good few years! Well done to all the children in Saturn

Today was the final of this year’s Science and Technology competition and, as usual, it was a very exciting afternoon. No one was sure who was going to win! The teams were seeded based on times from qualifying and had to compete in a best of 3, head to head drag, race. Reliability as well as speed came into play and teams found that sometimes being able to complete 3 good runs was better than 1 spectacular one! See below for photos of this year’s winners, both the overall winners and the prizes for ingenuity and artistic merit.

Many thanks to all who took time to make a model and to all at home who helped the children prepare.
