What's been happening at Nook Lane?

Slimy science week!!

Last half term we celebrated all things 'sciencey' with a 'Super, sticky, slimy science week!'. It gave the children the opportunity to do hands-on, fun experiments - the children had a fantastic time as they took part in a carousel of activities.

Our 'Super, sticky, slimy science week!' also involved focussed, classroom-based, morning activities to spark curiosity and discussion and lunchtime science demonstrations were led by the science curriculum council members!

Citizenship Award Assembly

On Monday 3rd April we held our end of term Citizenship Award Assembly.

The children chosen for this exceptional award were described as being great ambassadors for Nook Lane and have shown incredible kindness, support and understanding towards others in the school, local area and wider community.

Guide Dogs

Our Wednesday assemblies are pupil led and recently, Katie Harrison, one of our Year 5 pupils, asked if she could invite her grandmother into school, with a friend, to talk about guide dogs.

SEAL update

Gabby Manning in Year 6 has done an absolutely amazing job of updating the pupil help poster that was designed many years ago by the first SEAL Curriculum Council and recently this was shared with the whole school during a pupil voice assembly.

Y6 boys Football

Congratulations to our Y6 boys Football Team, who have been confirmed as winners of their football league, which they played in the autumn term.

We'd like to say congratulations to each of them - we are so proud of their achievement! Well done, Y6 boys!

Nook Lane Netball News

The Year 5 Netball Team went to the Sheffield High School Tournament towards the end of the Spring 1 half term. They played brilliantly and qualified for the semi-finals.

They beat Ashdell 4 - 2 which earned them a place in the final, in which they played Sheffield High School and despite an excellent performance, lost 2 - 0.

A huge thanks to Caroline Graham (Nook Lane's netball coach), Mrs Parkin (who organises the netball club) and the wonderful parental support we received. Congratulations to all involved!

Peer Mediator Conference

We took 8 of our peer mediators (children specially trained to help solve playground conflicts) to the annual Peer Mediator Conference earlier this month.

The children joined with peer mediators from many other schools to celebrate and share their ideas and experiences.

The day finished with a visit and show by a children's entertainer, who kindly posed with our Nook Laners, before we returned to school.

To find out more about our Peer Mediatiors and the role they play, see our Peer Mediation page ...

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.
