Summer Term 2013 Special Events

The summer term proved a very exciting and busy one for all of our pupils. As well as undertaking their Year 6 SATs the Year 6 children enjoyed a most enjoyable (if rather wet) residential to Castleton. The Year 4 children spent their time under canvas at Newstead Abbey and the Year 2 children "enjoyed" two very wet days at Wollaton Park.

The Early Years children were able to handle the  animals from White Post Farm when they visited school and the Year 1 children went on a super visit to Attenborough Nature Reserve.

The Year 4, 5 and 6 children entertained us and their parents/carers with their super guitar playing under the guidance of Chris Hull and the Year 2 Spanish after school club performed a super play in Celebrations Assembly.

Despite the extremely hot weather we enjoyed some marvellous  events at all of our sports days events culminating in the Year 6 Mini Marathon which was won by Kai Stewart and Cherronie Carr.

As part of their transition events the Year 3 children told the Year 2 children all about their World War II topic and this was enjoyed by all.

And who can forget our Summer Fair with the children themselves raising over £800 of the final total which was over £3200 with their enterprising activities as part of our Investors in Pupils accreditation!

We said goodbye to both Mr Hall and Mrs Usher at the end of term and a fond farewell to our wonderful Year 6 pupils. We wish both the children and staff many happy days in their new schools and will miss them all.

These are just a few of the exciting times we have had at Rise Park Primary and Nursery School this term. If you get a moment please pop into the Reception area where some of these events are on a rolling program on the screen... you are most welcome to watch. It captures so much of what the children do.

Finally our very special congratulations to Michael Ajaidoo who won the bicycle in our draw for over 95% attendance. Well done to all the children who entered into the draw - it is a pity we didn't have lots more bicycles to give away!
