Indoor Rowing Festival – Sainsburys School Games

Tuesday 12th December 2017

We took a boys’ team and a girls’ team to South Wolds School in Keyworth to take part in an indoor rowing festival.  Each team had one rowing machine and they completed different relay races including a calorie burn race, distance races and timed races.  The children’s rowing improved over the evening as did their teamwork and co-operation, having to get on and off the rowing machine at speed for the relay changes.

Parliament at Christmas Competition

Friday 1st December 2017

Every child in school designed a Christmas card for the Parliament at Christmas competition.  We had some really good designs and our staff selected a small group of children’s designs to send through to be judged.  We are very proud that one of our Year 5 children was selected as the overall winner of the competition, a fantastic achievement!  His design is being sent out by Newark MP Robert Jenrick to wish a merry Christmas to his 40,000 constituents.  Robert Jenrick came in to school to meet our finalists and the winner.
