Two teams of staff entered the Virgin Pulse Global Challenge – which encouraged participants to walk at least 10,000 steps each day for 100 days. All those who took part agreed that it encouraged them to take more exercise and consider healthier lifestyle options.
Best Foot Forward narrowly beat Potter Makes Perfect – but they were literally neck and neck until the final hour!
The summer production this year was “Now That’s What I Call Music” featuring songs from some of the most famous West End and Broadway musicals.
The children sang and danced their hearts out and the audience, made up of family and friends, had a great evenings entertainment.
Our thanks go to Branston Community Academy for allowing us to use their concert hall and for the BCA students who helped with lighting and sound production.
The staff and children had worked incredibly hard to produce such a memorable performance.
At the end of the production the Year 6 leavers were presented with a dictionary, language dictionary and a book of their choice as gifts from money donated by Christ’s Hospital Endowment. We are very appreciative of all the support the Trustees of the charity offer the school.
Parents and families were invited to attend a picnic lunch on the school playing field on Tuesday 11th July, unfortunately after a very dry spell leading up to this date the heavens decided to open forcing us to have our lunches in the classrooms. It didn’t seem to stop the children’s enjoyment of having their families with them.
After lunch the older children had organised a cake stall, face painting and a few games to play and at the end of this over £200 had been raised for our school allotment.
After the fun of the activities at lunchtime parents were then able to look at their children’s work.
Home Projects were on display.
On Thursday 6th July a team of nine year 5 and 6 children went to Branston Community Academy to play in a rounders tournament. This had been postponed earlier in the term due to wet weather; the rearranged date brought quite the opposite! A very warm and still afternoon! We played three games in total, winning two and then losing the last game by half a rounder! The children were disappointed to be so close to winning overall but accepted their second place gracefully! They were an absolute pleasure to take out of school; their behaviour was excellent and they continually supported each other throughout all the games.
We are delighted to announce that we have received the Gold School Games Mark Award. the School Games Mark is a Government led award scheme which rewards schools for their commitment to the development of competition across their school and into the community.
We are grateful to parents for their support.
Our Year 6 children were invited by Wilmott Dixon to attend a workshop at the Lincoln Transport Hub that taught them how to administer CPR in an emergency. They enjoyed a treat lunch from the fish and chip van.
We are grateful for the opportunity Wilmott Dixon have offered in supporting the children with this invaluable lesson. This may, one day, enable one of them to save someone’s life.
