What's been happening at Nook Lane?

Christmas Tree Walk

On the most beautiful winter's day imaginable, children from every class in school walked to The Sheffield Christmas Tree Company's farm in Dungworth. It was truly magical! It is a sustainable, ecologically friendly way of buying a tree as all of them are locally produced and involve no air miles, thus no carbon footprint.

We selected our Christmas tree from the 20,000 which had been planted there over the last 10 or so years! It wasn't easy, but we narrowed it down to two, then one! We also had a bounce on the Bouncy Castle and enjoyed watching the reindeer and her fawn!

A new face for On-line Safety

We are pleased to inform you Mr John Thornton (Year 4 teacher) will be taking on the responsibility of On-line Safety, previously known as E-safety, from Mr John Chadbourne (Deputy Head).

Mr Thornton will be taking forward the excellent work Mr Chadbourne has already put in place and ensure the children receive the very best education upon staying safe whilst on-line.

Guitar Lessons at Nook Lane

We have a visiting guitar teacher, Paul Hawksworth who attends the school on Thursdays and Fridays.

Students of all ages and abilities are welcome to take up the guitar and have the option of either shared or individual 20-minute lessons on acoustic, electric or even the ukulele.

Paul is a Sheffield Music Hub accredited tutor and can offer bursaries to help cover a portion of lesson costs to eligible families.

More information is available on our Afterschool Activities page.

2016 Halloween Disco

The children at Nook Lane thoroughly enjoyed the Halloween Disco organised by our fantastic parents group Friends of Nook Lane (FoNL).

Fragile X Syndrome

One of our pupils, Gabby in Year 6, presented an assembly to the whole school about Fragile X Syndrome, a condition that affects 1 in 4000 boys and men and 1 in 8000 girls and women.

For the Fragile Xpedition, Gabby is planning to row every night over a period of four weeks. The total distance over this time should be around 12-13 miles.

A total of £242.41 was raised in school. Well done to Gabby!

We have 'WILL' power

In celebration of World Book Day, Nook Lane celebrated in style by studying the plays of William Shakespeare.

Children dressed up and took part in an exciting carousel of activities. It was such a memorable day for all who took part.
