Achievement Assembly - 12th March 2018

Every Monday we celebrate children's achievements in a short assembly.

Children are given a certificate to showcase their success (with an emphasis on core values and their learning, especially reading).

Christmas Lunch

There has been a lovely festive atmosphere throughout school in the last week before Christmas; no more so than during Christmas lunch for the whole-school. Adults in school worked hard to create a memorable experience for the children and much festive fun was had by all.

Thanks to all the kitchen staff, lunchtime assistants, office staff, teaching assistants and teachers for making this occasion so special.

Christmas Fayre

Friends of Nook Lane did a brilliant job organising our well-attended Christmas Fayre. It was great to see so many parents, carers and family members in school for such events.

In particular, thanks to Friends of Nook Lane for all their hard work and organisation in preparation for the fayre and on the day itself and to the children and staff for their creative efforts in producing festive items to sell. The total profit was over £1000 - a tremendous effort!

Message from FONL

Dear families,

Many thanks for all the support you have given FONL this term. The Christmas Fayre raised £1,060 which is amazing. Thanks to everyone who supported this event, particularly the parents who came to help and the staff who made and sold amazing crafts which their classes had made.

So far this year we have helped to support school with new seating in the library, resources for the IR, a music day for Y4, Nooker Prize rewards, class Christmas presents, Young Voices registration, coaches for Thornbridge and reading schemes. Thanks to your support we will be able to continue helping the school, staff and children in the New Year.

We would also like to thank the Y6 team and pupils for their donation of £150 from the VE Tea Party. Thanks also to Ms Smith for organising the Christmas cards which were a huge success and raised a lot of money for school. Mrs Drake supported the Fayre by donating the proceeds from her stall to the school. Many thanks for this. Thanks also to Elise Lowes who also made gifts to sell at the Fayre and gave all her takings to the school.

Our first event on the New Year will be a disco on January 17th. More information about this will be sent out after the holidays.

We hope you all enjoy the festive break,


Y3 Christmas Show - A Christmas Carol

Children in Year 3 have enjoyed studying a version of A Christmas Carol this half term.

They worked really hard in rehearsals in preparation for a series of excellent Christmas performances in front of appreciative audiences. Well done to the Year 3 children and the Y3 team!

Parents, carers, grandparents and families raised a whopping £279.44 for the Cathedral Arch Project for Homeless People. Thank you so much for your generosity.

Christmas Tree Walk

On 5th December children from all classes visited The Sheffield Christmas Tree Company in Dungworth, Bradfield.

It was a beautiful day and the children walked there and back without a single complaint about the tricky up and down route.

They were a credit to themselves and to our school.
