A day in the life of Nook Lane

What's been happening at Nook Lane?

Y6 boys Football

The Y6 boys have now completed all their league games and are awaiting their league position.

The boys have demonstrated excellent sportsmanship and have enjoyed visiting a local school to play their games this season.

Thank you to all the parents for their continued support and encouragement and to Brian Smith (WisewoodF.C.) for coming to train the boys each week.

On-line Safety Parents' Evening

Towards the end of the summer term, Nook Lane hosted a parents' evening on Online Safety.

A very informative presentation was delivered by Sue Finnigan, an eLearning consultant from Sheffield's Primary ICT and eLearning team.

The information provided was found to be of great benefit for those attending. A parent commented: 'A really good presentation with lots of useful info to help me feel more in control of my children when on line.'

During the evening, several useful websites were mentioned, which can now be found on the Online Safety section of our website. We hope to be running this successful event again next year.

Year 6 Netball News

Earlier this term, the Year 6 netball team went to Lowedges Primary School to play a friendly league. We played six other schools.

The commitment, hard work and team spirit of the Nook Lane team was exceptional. We drew our first match and won the rest.

Our determination and excellent netball resulted in us winning the league. Well done!

Three Peaks Challenge

Two Nook Lane pupils have achieved something very special at the start of the new academic year.

These model pupils (sisters in Year 6 and Year 3) inspired the whole school to raise funds for a cause that was very dear to them - the Bristol Bone Marrow Transplant Unit - by taking up the Three Peaks Challenge.

Citizenship Award Assembly

On the last Monday of the summer term Nook Lane celebrated the pupils who had been nominated for the Citizenship Celebration Assembly.

Nook Lane are so proud of the fabulous citizenship skills demonstrated by the children who are so kind, caring and empathetic. The celebration assembly was well attended by proud parents and other family members.

Excuse Monsters 2017

The Excuse Monster competition has become an annual event at Nook Lane.

This year there were so many fabulous entries across the school.

After an assembly about not letting excuses get in the way of achieving goals, the children were invited to design a poster to help children understand this and to have on display in class to help them focus on what they want to achieve.

The winners from each year group have now had their work made into a poster for their class.

Well done to everyone who took part, the work was fantastic!
