Category: Uncategorizedsethi.gk @ 1:26 pm

Year 5 have been practising their Science investigative skills by planning for a new investigation. They had to choose which question to investigate; Which is the bounciest ball? or Which is the ‘best’ mopper upper? They worked in groups to plan out their investigation. They came up with some super ideas which they stuck on their planning board sheets. Well done year 5!

Yr 6 Poetry

Category: UncategorizedMr Simpson @ 2:21 pm

This week Year 6 have started to look at poetry and how we can use language to create a vivid picture. We used the painting The Scream by Edvard Munch as our inspiration; we discussed how and why the person in the picture may be feeling that way and how we could use the picture and its imagery to convey the feelings. Here are some of the wonderful poems written.

U11 Football Karnival

Category: UncategorizedMr Simpson @ 4:05 pm

Our U11 football team finished runners up in the Nottingham City School Karnival 2017. We fought our way through a tough group winning all 5 matches, although luck was on our side in a couple of matches. We then beat Cantrell school 1-0 in a closely fought match. In the final, we dominated the opening exchanges, but Forest Fields scored with their first attack and scored again against the run of play. We led the onslaught and scored a reply with a minute remaining but could not find the equaliser.

In reaching the finals we have qualified for the Notts City School Finals Night held at the City Ground in May/June.

Group stage:
v Rosslyn W3-0 (Prestwick, Emerson, Tadious)
v St Teresa W1-0 (Prestwick)
v Hempshill Hall W1-0 (Phoenix)
v Brocklewood W1-0 (Prestwick)
v Claremont W2-0 (Emerson & Thompson)

Semi Final:
v Cantrell W1-0 (Prestwick)

v Forest Fields L2-1 (Prestwick)
