On Thursday 19th June, children from Mandarin class took part in the cluster rounders tournament. 14 schools took part with each school playing 4 games in the first round. Our fantastic team, made up of Ellie, Lilli, Dan, Nico, Matt, Toby, Heidi, Charlotte and Cody, won 3 out of our 4 games which sent us straight through to the semi final against Outwoods school. Everybody, including the spectators, thoroughly enjoyed the competition and we are all very proud of our team! Well Done!

Children from year 3 and 4 took part in races held at Water Orton and at Austrey Playing Fields.

Well done to all who took part.
On the 27th April three pupils from out school attended the Food for Life Awards Ceremony at Ryton Gardens to receive our Bronze Catering award. The children delivered a short presentation about our success with composting, which we are particularly proud of. To win the award we had to show our commitment to healthy eating and submit evidence to demonstrate that we are continually striving to keep up to date food standards in school.
