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.

Halloween Fun Run

What a spooktacular first Halloween family fun run on Friday!

It was fantastic to see so many children and parents getting involved and all the creepy costumes. There were lots of red faces and happy smiles by the last lap. All finished off with some Halloween treats.

A big thank you to our fabulous parent organisers.

Look out for more details about the next run. We would love to see you all there!

Y3 Benchball Festival

On Monday 15th October, two teams of Y3 pupils took part in a Benchball Festival at Bradfield School, competing against other teams of Y3 pupils from our family of schools.

All the children taking part performed extremely well, showing great teamwork skills, fantastic sportsmanship and represented Nook Lane incredibly well. One team even took the third place title!

It was a fantastic event and all of the children went home with red faces and huge smiles! Well done to everyone who took part and thank you to all of the parents who came along to support!

Y3 visit to the Mandir

On Thursday 27th September all of Year 3 visited the Hindu Mandir and Community Centre in Sheffield. For all of the children (and adults!) this was their first trip to a Hindu Temple so there was much excitement and curiosity as we were unsure of what to expect.

After removing our shoes, Dr Patel welcomed us into the temple and gave us a thought-provoking talk all about the Hindu religion and their beliefs. He really emphasised the importance of respecting others, particularly your elders, and told us the stories behind many of the Hindu Gods.

After questions and answers we were able to sketch some of features of the beautiful shrine which included some of the Gods we had talked about at school such as Rama, Sita and Ganesh.

We would like to thank the Hindu Community Centre for welcoming us so warmly into the temple!
