Safe Parking Poster Competition
Thank you to all the entries into our Safe Parking Poster Competition that we set over the summer break. Our winning design (pictured) is by Robyn from Year 6 who wins a new scooter. All the entries have received Value Points and a special mention goes to Alice and Jasper who were close runners up. It is so important that we get the message about safe and respectful parking around our school at drop off and pick up times. We are continuing to speak with the Parish Council and local police on this issue with the aim of meeting with Newark and Sherwood District Council to discuss traffic/parking measures and proposals. We will keep you informed. Thanks to everyone for their support with it.
Well done to our development team who took on St. Mary’s Primary this week in a friendly match. They lost 2-0 in the end but put in valiant performance. Well done to man of the match—Junior. Good luck to the Year 6 team in their first league match of the season, playing at home against Hawthorne Primary after school today.
Several boys and girls (pictured) from Y4-6 represented the school at cross country last Saturday morning. Ewan and Sophia were our best boy and girl finishers with our highest team being our girls who came 6th out of 16 teams —a great result! They go again at Berry Hill this weekend. The cross country team is open to all children in Y4-6, they just need an adult to get them there on a Saturday morning. Please speak to Phil if you are interested.
Houses of Parliament
Year 6 went to visit the Houses of Parliament last Friday—a super experience! While in London they also visited Buckingham Palace to see the changing of the guard, Downing Street, Horse Guards Parade, lunch in St James’ Park, Trafalgar Square and even Hamleys! Our Year 6 children were superb in the bustling and busy environment of our capital city. Well done!
No Pens Wednesday
The whole school celebrated No Pens Wednesday this week—a national event that raises awareness of the importance of speaking and listening and people who may have communication difficulties. We always enjoy raising awareness of these things with our children.
