I had the pleasure of taking ten enthusiastic children to the South Notts Academy to take part in a cricket festival after school on Wednesday. I reminded these lucky ten how they had been chosen because of their good listening skills, sporting spirit and fantastic behaviour. They didn't disappoint as they moved around the sports [...]

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 [...]

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. I'm certainly very proud of them all!

I took eight elite children to play chess in the South Nottinghamshire chess tournament last night. Building on a fantastic start to the season earlier in the year, the boys played fantastically with wins across the board. 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 [...]

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 [...]
