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. Showing great tenacity and perseverance the eldest sister managed to complete the entire twenty four miles challenge in under twelve hours, whilst the youngest sibling displayed admirable determination to complete the Whernside Peak (seven miles) in just three and a half hours.

As part of the appeal, children from Nook Lane were encouraged (for one day only) to wear non-uniform and to bring in a monetary donation for this worthwhile cause.

The total raised was an impressive £243. Thank you to everyone for contributing and special congratulations to our intrepid pupils for going that extra mile (literally) to make a difference to other people's lives.

We are so proud of them both!

Citizenship Award Assembly - Summer Term 2016/17

On the last Monday of the summer term Nook Lane celebrated the pupils who had been nominated for the Citizenship Celebration Assembly. As usual, it was very difficult for class teachers and Teaching Assistants to only nominate up to 3 pupils for this prestigious award. The exception this term being a fantastic group of 4 Year 6 boys who beautifully supported a pupil from the Integrated Resource.

The celebration assembly was well attended by proud parents and other family members. Nook Lane are so proud of the fabulous citizenship skills demonstrated by the children who are so kind, caring and empathetic. We hope that the children enjoy spending their book tokens over the summer!

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!
