Achievement Assembly - 26th November 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).

Nook Lane Guitarists Perform

Paul Hawksworth recently led his Nook Lane guitarists in another entertaining assembly for the whole-school and in an extremely well-attended performance for parents, carers and families.

Well done to everyone concerned and to Paul for his inspirational work with the children. We look forward to further concerts in the spring and summer terms.

Peak Edge Multi-Academy Trust Update

It seems like a long while has passed since we last wrote to you about our progress in establishing our Multi-Academy Trust called "Peak Edge".

Since we last wrote to you, Peak Edge has appointed Trustees to govern the Trust and Peak Edge has now been incorporated as a Trust.

We expect that Loxley Primary, Nook Lane Junior and Oughtibridge Primary schools will become Academies in the Trust on December 1st 2018, that Bradfield Dungworth Primary and Stannington Infants will follow on January 1st 2019 and that Wharncliffe Side Primary will follow as soon as is possible after that.

Further details can be found in the Peak Edge Multi-Academy Trust Update letter sent out to all parents/carers on Monday 5th November 2018.

Armistice 100

To commemorate 100 years since the end of WW1, the children of Nook Lane created a special poppy art display. Each year group designed poppies using different art media and they all look stunning.

Harvest Festival for the Homeless

We have been busy collecting tins for our Harvest Festival for the Homeless. A few weeks ago Tim, Matt and Josh from the Cathedral Archer Project came to speak about what life was like for the homeless in Sheffield.

We would like to thank you for all your generosity - we collected nearly 350 tins and bags of warm clothes! Tim and Josh gratefully accepted them at our assembly this week.

New Look for School Railings

Some friends of Miss Bagnall, who work for British Gas, kindly offered their volunteering services at Nook Lane for a project to paint the school railings on the playground.

The volunteers kindly gave up some time during the summer holidays to do the tricky but important preparation work and to start the paint work and then they came back during the half term holidays recently to finish painting the railing a lovely Nook Lane green.

The school is extremely grateful for the volunteers for giving up their time to do such an impressive job.

Y6 at Kelham Island

The Y6s enjoyed a fabulous day out at Kelham Island Museum in October learning about life on the 'Home Front' during WWII.

They enjoyed learning about evacuation, air-raids, enemy aircraft, the Home Guard as well as life in the motions factory making 'Sheffield Steel' which was used to make crank shafts, explosives and lots of other important equipment used in the war.
