This morning children in main school wrapped up warm and set off for St Mary's Church in Bulwell for our annual Carol Concert. The concert is a true highlight of Crabtree's Christmas celebrations and it was wonderful to see so many adults there to support the children.
Today we were all a little excited, teachers included, when Santa Claus took time out of his busy schedule and was the star attraction at our Christmas Fayre. Alongside Santa, we were also joined by loads of smiling people who were busy enjoying the festive activities organised by our fantastic Parents' Group.
It was really nice to see so many families embracing the Christmas spirit together and we would like to thank you all for helping us spread the Christmas cheer that Crabtree is famous for.
Over the next couple of weeks, we will be participating in an anti-bullying week as well as our Well-being week.
Anti-bullying week takes place next week (w/c 11th November) and to support this we are asking that all of the children wear odd socks on Tuesday 12th November and to bring in 1p and 2p to fill the odd socks that will be in their classroom.
We will also be supporting Children in Need, which is taking place on Friday 15th November. On this day, the children will be able to come to school in non-uniform and will have the opportunity to purchase biscuits at playtime.
Our well-being week will take place the following week (w/c 18th November). During this week, the children will take part in a variety of activities. We will launch this week with a visit from the NSPCC.
All money raised will be donated to the following charities: Children in Need, NSPCC and the Anti-Bullying Alliance.
Tonight's Fireworks Night was a great success and we’d like to say a massive thank you to those of you who came out and supported this fantastic community event. Now in its fifth year, this year’s event was bigger than ever and there were more amazing things available to see and do than in previous years.
This would not have been possible without the stallholders and fairground rides so we must take this opportunity to thank them for the key part they played in the success of this Parents’ Group event.
The Fireworks Night really is a community event and we would like to thank Crabtree Farm Community Centre for once again offering their support. We also must thank our amazing Parents' Group who worked tirelessly to make the whole event happen; their dedication is nothing short of amazing!
Today the pupils, parents and staff here at Crabtree Farm Primary School got behind Macmillan Cancer Support's annual Coffee Morning and managed to raise an impressive £1208.83 for this good cause.
We'd like to say a massive thank you to everyone who supported today's fundraising event. We wouldn't have been able to raise this incredible amount of money if it wasn't for those of you who baked a cake, joined us for a coffee or wore non-uniform. You should all feel very proud of yourselves!

Cups of water and sun cream were on hand today for our KS1 & 2 Sports Day and the fun was evident from the smiles on the faces of the children and their parents/carers. We’d like to say a massive well done to all of the children for rising to the sporting challenges they faced in true Crabtree style. It was really nice to see a lot of parents and family members on the school field cheering the children on and we thank you all for joining us.
Once again our Easter Egg competition proved very popular and the entries brought in to school were fantastic. It was clear that our pupils and their families had put a lot of effort into the designs and choosing the winners was a very difficult task indeed! As well as this, we also had our Easter Egg Hunt and we must congratulate everyone who took part in the eggcellent Easter fun we’ve experienced at Crabtree this week.
It is that time of year again where we invite all the special grownups in our lives to come and have a Mother's Day Breakfast with us and we were truly delighted to see so many smiling faces sitting down to celebrate this very special occasion together.
We would like to wish you all a very Happy Mother's Day on behalf of everyone at Crabtree Farm and we must also say a massive thank you to all those who made today happen.
Over the weekend, have a go at hard boiling an egg with an adult and decorating it. Bring it into school on Monday 1st April and it will be judged on the morning of Wednesday 3rd April. Please ensure entries are in by the morning.
On Wednesday, each class, will be taking part in an Easter Egg Hunt with their class teacher. Good luck to everyone.
On Thursday, there will be the Easter Disco with an Easter Bonnet Parade with prizes. Get your tickets this week, sold in the office area before and after school.
Today the children and staff at Crabtree Farm got behind the Red Nose Day Conk Jester and raised a lot of money for Comic Relief. The fundraising frenzy kicked off very early this morning at Breakfast Club where Minnie Mouse, a few scientists and the odd pirate were spotted tucking into a slice of toast!
For one day only the school uniform was abandoned in favour of fancy dress costumes and we would like to say a massive thank you to the grownups out there who must have worked tirelessly on the fantastic costumes that were on display today.
We haven’t finished the count yet, but so far together we have managed to raise an amazing £800 pounds for this fantastic cause and we couldn’t have achieved this without the support of all of you. You should all be very proud of the difference your donations will make to the lives of people both in the UK and worldwide.
