Over the next few weeks there will be a number of different events happening in school, particularly with the Christmas period fast approaching. Here is a handy list to help you keep track of when the events are and what we have on offer for parents and carers to come and support their children.
Following last season’s promising performances, the Crabtree Farm football team started their competitive season with an indoor tournament at Harvey Haddon. 5 schools played a round robin format, with the top 2 going on to a grand finals event taking place in December. The team put in an amazing performance, seeing them top the table with 4 wins out of 4. The first place finish was fully deserved not only due to their footballing performances, but also thanks to their fantastic sportsmanship and respect for the game and their opponents. The kind comments made by the organisers suggest that they certainly did themselves and the school proud.
We followed that tremendous performance up with our first league game in a couple of years. We matched a strong Rufford team on the pitch, and began to show our dominance by racing into a 2-0 lead. Rufford got a goal back before half time, which could have proved to be a setback. However, the boys’ resilience shone through, as they went and scored...
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.
Welcome back, we hope you had a lovely half term. This half term, our topic will be the Vikings. As part of this topic, we will be going on a trip to the University of Nottingham to learn about them. We will be taking part in lots of exciting workshops to extend our knowledge of the topic.
This trip is on Friday 29th November and will take place during the school day. We will be leaving at 9:30am on the day and will return to school by 1pm so the children can be dropped off and collected at the usual times. The cost of this trip is £2 and this will need to be paid before we go on the trip.
