HEALTH AND FITNESS WEEK
What a brilliant week we have had for Health and Fitness week! The British weather was kind to us, and everyone had a great time. Thank you to all the parents who joined us for a picnic on Wednesday - we hope you enjoyed it as much as we did. The children all tried their best during their sports days to earn points for their class. The overall winners from each phase were: Class 1, Class 7, Class 11, Class 17 - congratulations to you all!
And a big thank you to Mrs Aziz, Mr Malooq and Mr Pemberton for all their hard work in organising everything.
Nursery Trip to Markeaton Park
The Nursery children had a wonderful day in the sunshine at Markeaton Park on Wednesday. We enjoyed a delicious picnic, explored the woods, and challenged ourselves on the climbing equipment! The teachers were very proud of the children and their behaviour; they represented our school fantastically.
The School Council organised a drawing competition for the whole school. Thank you to everyone who took part; we received some excellent entries. The School Council and some of the teachers judged the competition, and chose the top 3 in each phase to win a prize. Congratulations to all the winners:

We have had an amazing year for fundraising, as you can see from this chart.
A huge thank you to Miss Ford who organised a number of events which raised a total of £1443.49 for school funds. The School Council also raised £65 for school funds. This money will be put towards putting a new piece of equipment in the playground.
We have also raised £1203.34 for other charities, including Children in Need, Red Nose Day and the Poppy Appeal.
Our overall total raised was £2,712.23
