Head Teacher's Blog

Week Ending 16th November 2018


This week, the following children have received a Head Teacher’s Award:


Oliver – Y3 – for overcoming his obstacles and staying focussed on a piece of tricky maths work


Maizie – Y5 – for having an amazing week; staying focussed in the afternoons in class with a super attitude…AND smiling LOTS!


Amy – Violet 1 – For going above and beyond in her homework! Amy created a wonderful thought-provoking soldier with facts that she had learnt in the lead up to the centenary.


Week Ending 16th November 2018


Wow... second week down already and the Nottingham light switch on really shows that Christmas is well and truly approaching!

This week has been another busy week and an enjoyable one at that!


Monday and Tuesday had a true disco excitement feel and the neon themes were a huge success. Thanks to everyone who participated and for the parents, who supported the event. The two nights made a grand total of £770 and thanks hugely to the Greasley Hub, who arranged the events for the children. This is a substantial amount for school fund and we are very proud of their efforts. Without the Hub’s work last year, and raising £4,500, Project Playground would not have been possible. Thank you to everyone.


On Thursday, the year 5 children looked fabulous as they ventured into their Viking experience! The children spent a whole day in the hall with an authentic Viking lady, who taught the children all about the way in which the Vikings lived; cookery, weapons, clothing…and more. The children were fabulous and thanks again for your support.


Friday was also fabulous and the highlight had to be Children in Need. Presenting Rainbow Rewards in a Pudsey onesie was a personal highlight and seeing the sea of yellow, spots, creativity and imagination was just brilliant. The day continued with Pudsey biscuits, fashion shows and more. Thanks to Miss Marvin for arranging the day and fashion show, Mrs Barrowcliffe for all the biscuit baking and all the staff and children to throwing themselves into their charity work. Parents, you were fabulous too with your creations - thank you!


Have a great weekend everyone and I look forward already to another super week next week

Warm regards,
