Another busy week at Old Basford.
Special thanks this week to all who came to the coffee and cake morning. The children raised £100 for playground equipment, well done to Miss Wardle and School Council for the organisation.
Well done to the Year 3/4 Athletics team. They won their City Heat and go into the semi-finals, always good to beat our local rivals!!
It was great to see our Year 5/6 Gymnastics team do so well in the City competition, they were very proud of their bronze medals. Miss R is certainly a great coach for all the children in school.
The Basketball team were named County team of the month by coach Jimmy "jumpshot" Smith, well done for the unbeaten run in the last two competitions. Mrs Shaw is very proud of you all.
Hard luck to the "A" Football team who just lost 3-1 to Ambleside, hopefully we can get out a little more as the weather gets better.
We checked the children's reading diaries this week and can I thank everyone for supporting their children so well. Hearing your child/children read 3 times a week makes a massive difference.
Attendance for week ending 5th February is 96.2%.
Have a great weekend and I'll see you all on Monday.
The school football team were back in action this week, after the winter break. Unfortunately we lost a very competitive City Cup match away at Ambleside - going down 3-1. See the Football page for details of forth coming fixtures.
