An Inspirational Visitor – Richard Whitehead

In preparation for the Robin Hood Marathon, Richard Whitehead came into our school to talk to us about his sporting career and help us train for Sunday’s run.

Richard Whitehead is a Paralympic gold medalist. His greatest gift from God was to run. He has taken part and won in the London 2012 Paralympic 200m run and many marathons. He visits schools to coach others and inspire children to aim high. He tells people to never give up and that you are never too young (or old) to try your best! I have shown resilience when I was trying to do cartwheels. The first time I tried, I fell but I didn’t give up and now I am amazing at them. Also when I was practicing to read. I couldn’t and didn’t give up but now I can read.’ 

It was very exciting having Notts TV in school! 4E would like to say a big thank you to Mr Fiddes for organising the event with his team and for giving us this opportunity!

KS2 Health Week – On the Ball



KS2 Health Week kicked off with beautiful sunny weather. Plenty of action with Korfball Kathy and friends down at the field. Our wonderful tennis Coach, Rob Briggs, from West Bridgford tennis club was very impressed with our future tennis stars. And the high-energy and exciting game of Capture the Flag was provided by Premier Sports. There was even time for a bit of girls’ cricket. Not bad for Day 1! Day 2 features Dan the Skipping Man, Hoop Guy (of Britain’s Got Talent fame) , Premier Sports and more girls’ cricket

Girls Football

The SEC girls put in another battling performance to defeat Radcliffe 2-0 in the County Cup Semi Final.

Having only narrowly beaten them in the Rushcliffe Cup it was sure to be a close encounter.

2 first half goals proved to be the difference.

A final against West Bridgford Juniors awaits and a chance to make amends for penalty heartbreak in the final of the Rushcliffe Autumn 6 aside.

You can do it girls!

One final game to sign off in style!

Venue: Burton Joyce. Date: To be confirmed.

Year 1 Update

‘Little pig, little pig let me in!’ The Year 1 children were very busy over the Easter holidays building houses for the Three Little Pigs! What fantastic creators we have in our classes – Super work!

In RE we have been focusing on Holidays and Holy days. The children have created some beautiful stained glass crosses for this topic. The children really worked hard on these pieces of Art and they are truly beautiful. Well done Year 1!

We have been some very busy bees in Year 1 this week, we have even planted some cress seeds as a Science experiment! The children used the materials independently to plant their own cress seeds. Now we wait to watch them grow!

As the sun was shining this week we decided it was time to go on a flower hunt! All of the Year 1 children made a visit to our allotment to see what flowers they could find. The children found lots of different flowers, including Daffodils, Lilies, cherry blossoms and tulips! We are now ready to create some beautiful flower artwork next week!

Boot Camp Liturgy!?

Our creative liturgy leaders lead our collective worship in the allotment. It was a beautiful day in the sun and we thoroughly enjoyed gathering together to reflect upon ‘New Life’. They led us in our Boot Camp exercises to jump in joy for the Lord’s love, press-ups (to lift the weight of sin from our shoulders) and burpees (to show the ups and downs we take along our spiritual roads). There was a smile on every face!


Remember – by changing our attitude, we can have a New Life without worries.
