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.

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.

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 [...]

We had a wonderful two days at Beaumanor Hall, enjoying climbing, shelter building, hide and seek and plenty of running about in the fresh air. The children were fantastically well behaved and learned an awful lot about how to look after themselves, their things and their friends. I hope that the parents enjoyed a brief [...]

Just a quick update to say that I had the pleasure of taking ten delightful children to the area final for sports hall athletics. We battled against five other schools who had also qualified for the finals. Events included relay racing, throwing, jumping and sprinting. The children were polite, organised, determined and competitive. With five [...]
