Today we said a sad goodbye to Mrs Mathieson who is leaving us after an incredible ten years at Crabtree Farm Primary. Mrs Mathieson joined us in 2010 as a Teaching Assistant in our Early Years Setting and rapidly became a key part of the Crabtree family. Mrs Mathieson, who has also worked in Year 5 & 6, leaves us to take up a role in the local authority and we are sure you will join us in wishing her all the best for the future.
Red Nose Day 2019 is just around the corner and we’ve decided to join in the fun.
To raise money, we’re going to have a non-uniform day.
So for just £1 you can come dressed as your favourite Disney character/Pirate or Mad Scientist to coincide with our Science week.
We will be selling Red Noses in the office from tomorrow.
They will cost £1.25 each this year!
The money we raise will be used to change countless lives, both here in the UK and worldwide. In fact, just £3 could pay for crayons, pencils, paint and paper for children living in a Serbian refugee camp. And £10 could cover the cost of 10 hot meals for a homeless person in the UK.
We’ll also be using Red Nose Day as a learning opportunity to help our pupils explore the issues facing young people across the world, and how the money we raise can help.
We really appreciate your support and hope that you’ll have fun helping us raise lots of money for Red Nose Day.
The children in Key Stage 2 have all been taking part in ‘The Crabtree Daily Mile’. During lunchtime break, the children have a choice as to whether they walk or run the mile and are joined by members of staff to support and encourage this.
We initially trialled this back in November during our well-being week where we looked at the Sherriff of Nottingham’s challenge to get every child in Nottingham to complete a mile’s worth of steps every day. This challenge has been rolled out as a national initiative and we are proud to say that Crabtree Farm have risen to this challenge!
Today a group of sporting superstars got changed into their sports gear and headed off to Harvey Hadden to take part in a Boccia Tournament.
Boccia is a game of attack and defence with two sides competing over a set number of ends. The aim is to score as many points as possible by placing their set of coloured balls closest to the white jack ball. We are delighted to say that the children have reached the semi-finals and we could not be prouder of them. Well done!
