Cross Countyr Excellence

Thursday, 28 January 2016

Yesterday pupils from year 5 and 6 took part in a cross country race at St Michael’s School. Many schools took part in this qualifying round; there were 70 children in each race boys and girls. The pupils ran around St Michael’s and Nicholas Chamberlain’s school fields (it was a long way!) and two of our pupils managed to qualify for the next round, with one of our year 5 boys winning the boys race.
Well done to everyone who took part.

Tally Chart of Houses

Thursday, 7 January 2016

Year 1 were out this morning looking at the different types of houses to be found on Burbages Lane.

They were looking really carefully at the buildings to see what type they were.

Initially it was thought that this was a bungalow until someone spotted the windows upstairs.

Why no roofs we wondered!
