21st March: A BIG “THANK YOU” to all of you who have returned your sponsor money so swiftly. So far we have raised over £1,400! If you still have money to collect please note that MONDAY 31st MARCH is the final day we can receive it into school. After this, anything else collected will need to be paid directly to Sport Relief by you. Well done to everyone who took part in our 1 mile obstacle course and for the money you have raised. We are very proud of you all!
Congratulations once again to our football team who secured an impressive 7-0 win against local rivals, Cranham Primary. The team’s dominance was best summed up by our very own goalkeeper, Tom, who said “I was frozen rigid with my feet glued to the spot as the ball very rarely came near me. I only got a touch of the ball about 3 times!”
Our netball team also put in a sterling effort this week but were unfortunately defeated by Oldbury Park.
We were impressed by the good sporting conduct shown by both teams. Well done to all of you.
Building Work Update
We now have viewing windows, much to the excitement of the children, the staff and even the OFSTED inspector! The construction company have purchased a set of hard hats and high-visibility jackets for the children - this is not because they need a larger workforce to meet the deadline but so that we can organise site visits for the children over the coming weeks. Very exciting!
Again, our football and netball teams have been out and about representing our school.
Our netball team did us proud in their efforts against Perdiswell Primary School this week, even though we conceded defeat with a score of 4-3.
Our football team have been in action twice since our last newsletter. In a very hard fought game, the team ground out a 1-0 victory over Oasis Academy, Warndon. The team showed plenty of character and tenacity to take the three points. Despite earning their first win of the season, the children could not carry the momentum into this week’s fixture against Northwick Manor. Sadly the 8-1 score-line did not reflect the hard work and team spirit shown by all those involved. The team will look to bounce back when they take on Cranham Primary next week.
