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.

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 [...]

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 [...]
