Year 6 Boys Football Match at Candleby Lane
A huge well done to the Year 6 boys who played away against Candleby Lane before the holidays. Thank you Mr Rossington for taking them and to our parents for their support too. We are very proud of you.
Year 5 and 6 County Athletics final
Mr Burdes and I had the pleasure of taking a team of our Year 5 and 6 athletes to the County Finals during our INSET day before half term. It really was a special event and we were so proud to watch our children represent Rushcliffe, competing with children from all areas of the County. Our team performed incredibly well against lots of other very talented young athletes. The standard was very high, the races were quick and close and our team worked very hard throughout the event. We are delighted that our team won a bronze medal and I would like to congratulate them all on their fantastic performances and sporting attitude. A big thank you to our parents and grandparents who came along to support us on the day and to Mr Burdes for coaching and organising the team. Well done everyone!
Swimming Gala – report from Mr Burdes
Last term 18 children competed in a swimming gala against 11 other schools. The children all had to swim an individual race as well as taking part in relay races. This was the first taste of competitive swimming for nearly half our team and they did tremendously well to cope with the nerves as well as race. Our children swam so much faster than they expected and it was a delight to watch them enjoy their efforts. When all the scoring had been added up – they couldn’t believe that they had won! Beating a school which had (according to the timekeepers) had the fastest boy in the whole of Nottinghamshire – What a great team effort!
The team have now qualified for a county final. Good luck everyone and keep training.
Year 6 Girls Futsal
A huge well done to our Year 6 Girls Futsal Team, who took part in their tournament last week. Mrs Ejezie and Miss Marriot were very impressed with their positive attitude, their ability to work as a team and the improvements they made throughout the tournament, winning some of their matches. They were all a pleasure to spend time with too. Well done girls – we are all very proud of you

It was a thrilling heat with 9 brilliant teams who raced their hearts out and really worked hard in the field events.
