Thursday saw a very exciting culmination of a whole half term's geography focus. Twelve very brave children took it in turns to sit in the black chair and be bombarded by some very tough questions. I think we can all agree that our contestants did themselves proud. Many of the children have been asking me [...]
As much as I love LEGO and jigsaw puzzles, it was a treat to swap year two's play afternoon for a trip to County Hall's debating chamber for our most recent pupil parliament meeting. Two representatives from every primary school in Rushcliffe were in attendance and brought with them notes from discussions that had happened [...]
I had the pleasure of taking the Willow Brook girls football team to Abbey Road Primary School in West Bridgford to take part in a first round match of the Rushcliffe Primary Schools Football Cup. As soon as kick off had taken place, any nervous energy was transformed into fire and determination as the girls [...]
The children of class two have been making the most of a brief dry spell to get outside and have some fun during a PE lesson with the marvelous Miss Phillips. Have a look at some of our happy faces!
Our girls chess team played in the first girls only Nottinghamshire chess league and performed very well indeed. Nearly all of the girls came away with some points and even those who didn't manage to create any checkmates, still had a great time and gained valuable tournament experience.

Unfortunately our year six boys narrowly missed out on bronze medals, coming in fourth place over the two [...]
The girls played their first cup match of the year against Tollerton, who had already had a very successful start to the season. Our Willow Brook team took a while to get settled into playing away, with the wind in our faces and went two goals down before half time. After a little chat and [...]
The year four boys represented Willow Brook school with pride on Wednesday at the South Notts Academy. They looked great in their new kits and ran their socks off. For many of the boys it was their first playing representing the school in a proper football match. For the others it was a chance to [...]
Its a new year and a new competition. We've got a new team and thanks to Friends of Willow Brook, a shiny new kit. Thankfully though, we've got that same great sporting attitude and have progressed through to the next round. I took eight excited boys to East Leake to play against Brookside in the [...]
With the help or Miss Brearey, I managed to take a record number of children to the Nottinghamshire South Area Chess League which was hosted at Gamston. All 33 children played with calm focus throughout their games and although many felt quite nervous to begin with, all walked away with smiles on their faces. But [...]
