Willow Brook girls chess team do themselves proud!

By |2018-11-30T09:02:50+01:00November 30th, 2018|Class 4, Class 5, Class 6, Front Page Slider, Whole School|Comments Off on Willow Brook girls chess team do themselves proud!

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!

Chess Champions!

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 [...]

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 [...]

I had the pleasure of taking sixteen of our fittest, strongest and most determined Willow Brook children to the Rushcliffe cross country meeting last week. Both our girls and boys teams ran their socks off. Although we didn't bring home any silverware, lots of experience was gained and several children managed to squeeze our a [...]

The children in class four have had quite a magical week. On Monday we met three experts in Roman history who brought with them two huge crates full of artifacts. The children got to handle genuine Roman coins, pottery and jewelry as well as have some fun with some very high quality replicas. The children [...]

Roman Sculptures

By |2018-10-05T17:32:04+01:00October 5th, 2018|Front Page Slider|Comments Off on Roman Sculptures

We have been learning about how vain the Roman emperors were. Not unlike the current generation of world leaders, they seemed obsessed by their own image, and managed to secure their fame and notoriety by having their forms forever captured in the finest carved marble. The children were very excited when I told them that [...]

Sunday morning looked grey and gloomy as I left my house, but by the time I arrived at Crossdale, the sun had come out and it looked like it would be a beautiful day. Any how could it have been anything other than a beautiful day when there were over thirty keen Willow Brook athletes [...]
