On Monday 16th July, we took an intrepid and talented group of young athletes to compete in the 2018 'Going For Gold' tournament for Years 2, 3 and 4.  The event is organised by PDET and Pacesetter Sports.  Having finished 3rd overall last year and collecting a hatfull of individual awards, our journey over was a confident one!

The pupils took part in a range of track and field sporting activities, all testing their skill and endurance.  As always, our children showed commitment and excellence, whilst also demonstrating wonderful sportsmanship.  They truly had a fabulous day. The event was a huge success and we must thank both PDET and Pacesetters for a well organised, enjoyable event.  Pacesetters will be working in our school next year and I have no doubt that they will have been impressed with what they saw yesterday.

The most exciting news, however, is that this talented bunch managed to storm home again in a trophy position - beating last year's finish to end up in 2nd place for this year.  Here is our lovely new trophy - the second success that the school has been led to this term under the guidance of Mr Brown!

Freddie, who was the 3rd best overall boy when he was in Year 2 last year, retained his crown and again finished as 3rd best boy overall.

Who knows where we'll finish next year...



Fete 8

We held our Summer Fete on Friday 13th July.  The fete was a huge success with parents describing it as the school’s ‘best yet’.  Organised by the amazing 'Friends of Collingtree Primary School', the fete had loads of fun activities and games, including a penalty shoot-out, archery competition, hook-a-duck and skittles.  Inside, visitors had the opportunity to buy gifts from local craft companies or have their face painted, whilst refreshments were available from a BBQ, sweet stall and even a Pimm’s tent!  Entertainment was provided by one of the Minions and a balloon artist.   

The pupils were also able to get their revenge on us  – hurling soaking wet sponges at Mrs Bedi, Mrs Chambers, Miss Starmer, Mr Brown and even Mr Albert. When not drenching their teachers, our Y6 pupils helped run the stalls and activities, receiving glowing praise for their efforts and for being supportive to the younger participants and for showing all of the school values.

Emma Clayson, a parent at the school, said the fete “… had a lovely feel to it.”

Not only was it a fantastic event, it also helped raise over £1000 to support the school moving forward. Thank you all for your support.

We aspire to keep our children safe, at school and online...
