A day in the life of Nook Lane

What's been happening at Nook Lane?

Spanish Visit!

As part of our Spanish language learning in school we have established a link with a school in Gran Canaria, CEIP El Tablero.

Felisa Bernal Consejo, a teacher from El Tablero, visited Nook Lane last week and took part in our Spanish lessons.

Bah Humbug!

After several weeks of practice and hard work, the Y3 children showcased their many talents performing 'A Christmas Carol' to rave reviews.

Well done to everyone (narrators, actors, dancers, singers) for a series of wonderful performances that really put us all in the festive spirit.

See more of our fantastic performance on the Year 3 Yeargroup page ...

Christ Church's Baby Group Nativity

Some of the Year 6 children were invited to sing at Christ Church's Baby Group Nativity.

They did a wonderful job singing a variety of carols and songs in between the nativity story being told. They also had a a great time entertaining the babies before the nativity began.

Christmas Service

In the last week of term the whole school and parents attended our annual Christmas Service at Christ Church, Stannington.

The theme was Peace and the children read sections of the Nativity Story from the Bible.

Santa Hat Fun Run

On Friday 7th December, the first Nook Lane Santa Hat Fun Run was a great success despite the typically English winter weather!

All the children had lots of festive fun, there were lots of sweaty, muddy Santas by the end and everyone was full of Christmassy cheer.

We would like to thank the overwhelming number of parents, carers and grandparents who came out in their numbers to support the event and hope to hold similar events later in the year!

Peak Edge Multi-Academy Trust Update

It seems like a long while has passed since we last wrote to you about our progress in establishing our Multi-Academy Trust called "Peak Edge".

Since we last wrote to you, Peak Edge has appointed Trustees to govern the Trust and Peak Edge has now been incorporated as a Trust.

We expect that Loxley Primary, Nook Lane Junior and Oughtibridge Primary schools will become Academies in the Trust on December 1st 2018, that Bradfield Dungworth Primary and Stannington Infants will follow on January 1st 2019 and that Wharncliffe Side Primary will follow as soon as is possible after that.

Further details can be found in the Peak Edge Multi-Academy Trust Update letter sent out to all parents/carers on Monday 5th November 2018.
