 Science Quiz Semi finals
Shlok SB, Chima A, Euan D and Matthew M travelled to Solihull to represent the school at the semi finals. The team were in second and third position for much of the competition. The game changed at the end when the children didn’t score enough points in the 37th-40th question of the quiz (40 questions in total). Their point score was very close to the winners the whole way through the competition.  The children worked extremely well as a team and took their time to think about the questions and select their answers. I am really proud of their achievement – they are an asset to the school.

Notts FA Indoor 5-a-side – Our U11 five a side team narrowly lost out last night finishing joint 2nd. But for an equaliser conceded with the last kick in our first match, we would have finished 1st. This still was a magnificent result, especially considering George E and George T had to pull out due to illness. Our replacement, Cholan S did fantastically well and got better as the tournament went on.

The tournament was so close that the team that finished in 5th place were only 3 points from finishing top. Our record: P5 W2 D2 L1.


Student of the Week
Sara N T for growing in confidence and making good progress in her swimming lessons this half term.
