A day in the life of Nook Lane

What's been happening at Nook Lane?

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.

Achievement Assembly - 12th November 2018

Every Monday we celebrate children's achievements in a short assembly.

Children are given a certificate to showcase their success (with an emphasis on core values and their learning, especially reading).

New Look for School Railings

Some friends of Miss Bagnall, who work for British Gas, kindly offered their volunteering services at Nook Lane for a project to paint the school railings on the playground.

The volunteers kindly gave up some time during the summer holidays to do the tricky but important preparation work and to start the paint work and then they came back during the half term holidays recently to finish painting the railing a lovely Nook Lane green.

The school is extremely grateful for the volunteers for giving up their time to do such an impressive job.

Y6 at Kelham Island

The Y6s enjoyed a fabulous day out at Kelham Island Museum in October learning about life on the 'Home Front' during WWII.

They enjoyed learning about evacuation, air-raids, enemy aircraft, the Home Guard as well as life in the motions factory making 'Sheffield Steel' which was used to make crank shafts, explosives and lots of other important equipment used in the war.

Year 4 at the Sheffield Jewish Centre and Synagogue

Just before half term Year 4 had a highly informative and interesting visit to the Sheffield Jewish Centre and Synagogue.

Our guide told us about the history of the synagogue and the importance of the religious artefacts such as the Torah scrolls and the Ark of the Covenant.

Year 5 trip to the Sikh Gurdwara

Y5 enjoyed a wonderful trip to the Sikh Gurdwara in Sheffield.

We were all touched by the kindness shown to us and came away with a much greater understanding of the Sikh religion and beliefs. Thank you to all the wonderful people who made this possible.

Y3 Pharaoh's Promise

Year 3 have been learning all about Ancient Egypt.

They have learned so much about the geography and history of Ancient Egypt and had a lot of fun doing so!

They have developed their clay skills creating replica canopic jars, danced like Egyptians and even mummified tomatoes!!

Bradfield Parish Council Visit - Summer Term 2018

During the summer term, our School Council made the annual visit to Bradfield Parish Hall to hold one of their meetings.

As always, everyone had a really lovely time. We were really well looked after by Pam Burgoyne who has enabled us to visit the hall for many years now.

Find out more about the discussions that took place at the meeting on our Pupil Voice page.
