Our Gymnastic squad have been bringing home the silver ware after a superb performance last weekend. It is nice to see a mixed team of boys and girls of various ages, supporting each other and sharing success.
We are very proud of our sports teams who have been enjoying great success in recent competitions.
Our Girl's Table Tennis team made their coach, Mr Mapletoft , extremely proud by winning the regional ESTTA event and progressing to the national finals putting them in the last 4 of over 300 schools.
The children thoroughly enjoyed World Book Day this week. Our visiting story teller, Chip, spent the day in school spinning yarns and stories in whole school assembly before holding story-building workshops with each year group in turn.
Chip used songs, music, humour and the children’s ideas to develop stories and then worked with the staff after school in a follow-up workshop. The day was extremely valuable and certainly allowed us to enjoy World Book Day from a different angle.
A group of children from Years 5 and 6 took part in the Grantham and District Sports Hall competition at The Grantham Meres Leisure Centre last Friday. The children took part in a variety of track events. Our team of 22 children impressively displayed their talents. Their dedication and hard work was rewarded by achieving second place in the competition and they proudly returned to school wearing their silver medals.
Representatives from Year 3, 4, 5 and 6 attended the Meres Leisure Centre on Thursday to take part in the Grantham Swimming Gala. Seven other schools also took part and we achieved third place overall and first place in the relay races, returned to school with a trophy. We are extremely proud of their achievements. Not only did our children represent us exceptionally well with swimming, we were contacted by a local headteacher who had been impressed by the way in which our children had congratulated the other team and showed such a positive attitude. Our wonderful children are a credit to our school.

This morning we held our Harvest Assembly with songs and readings about Autumn, Harvest and helping others. The children took turns to present their offerings which are going to support the Grantham Foodbank.
We finished with a blessing for people of any faith and went back to class knowing that we have done a small thing to make a big difference to people in need.
Thank you so much for your kind donations.
Thursday 21st April, 2016 - It's DISCO time again and what a lovely, sunny evening it was! The younger children had a very happy time joining in all kinds of musical fun and games and they looked fabulous in their outfits!
The older children participated in a different set of games and threw their shapes to different tunes but they looked just as fabulous and just as happy doing so!
Thank you to our PFA for organising this evening and giving the children such a lovely, happy time - it is much appreciated.

The Bronze Ambassadors from The National Junior School visited us today to hand over the Legacy Torch which is making its way around local schools.
We heard about the Olympic and Paralympic Values and watched several films which inspired us to achieve great things and filled us with anticipation for the summer of sport ahead.
The torch was handed over to our Bronze Ambassadors who will take it to Belton Lane Primary School tomorrow so that it can continue on its journey. We were given a replica to keep as a reminder of the values: friendship, respect, excellence, determination, inspiration, courage and equality.

Our guests of honour this morning were our Mayor, Jacky Smith, and several parents who joined us for a very special assembly to get our week off to a celebratory start.
Our School Council members were each presented with a special, green sweatshirt which they will wear to identify their role in our school. Their parents were with us to watch the special moment when each of them met the Mayor and received their sweatshirt.
We are very proud of our School Council and the Mayor reminded them of how significant it is to have been elected by their peers.
They look extremely smart in their green sweatshirts.
After counting up all the House Points and Merits, awarded since September, the children were very excited to find out which House had won for the first time.
The House with the most House Points was:
Congratulations - what a great team effort.
The year 5 and 6 dance club have been working hard on a fantastic routine over the past few weeks and last night they put on an excellent performance for the parents and teachers.
We are proud to introduce our new Play Leaders who have successfully completed a training programme which has given them a wide range of skills and ideas to help our younger children play well together.
Play Leaders will be easily identifiable, at play times, with their smart tabards and baseball caps and we all look forward to the support they will bring to the playground.
