China Expedition

During the week before half term, Mr Mody went on an expedition with other Nottinghamshire headteachers to China.  The purpose of the visit was to form a partnership with a school in China. There was opportunity to take in some of the sights in Shanghai and Ningbo, but the highlight of the visit was to Nanmen Primary School - which is now our sister school!

Time Capsule Complete

Thank you to Mr Simpson who has added the final finishing touches to our time capsule.  

Aside from the occasional cleaning and maintenance, it won't now be touched for another 50 years!

50th Anniversary Garden Party

 On Friday 30th June, the school community celebrated the 50th anniversary with a huge garden party.  There was go-karts, lazer tag, Punch & Judy, face painting and circus skills workshops.  The children also performed a 'flash mob' dancing along to hits from the 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s, 00s and more modern music.

During the afternoon, a special time capsule (provided by One Site Laser) was buried by Mr Robin Wilson, Deputy Lieutenent of Nottinghamshire with instructions for it to be unearthed in 50 years' time!

A Picnic fit for a Queen

On Friday 10th June, staff and children celebrated HRH Queen Elizabeth II 90th birthday by having a specially prepared picnic in the school grounds. The weather, although cloudy, was perfect for the event. The school playground was decorated with Union flags, Union flag bunting and bunting that the children made themselves.
The children spent the morning learning about the life of our our monarch before enjoying the festivities at lunchtime.
