Paralympic Athlete in School! 22nd June 2017
We had the pleasure of inviting Katrina Hart to our school last week. She is a Paralympic sprinter and received a bronze medal at the London paralympics. We were so excited when she showed it to us! We participated in a sponsored challenge and completed different activities for a total of four minutes, this doesn't sound long, but it was very hard work!
Well done to all the children who took part, remember sponsorship money is due on Thursday 29th June.
A thought-provoking and moving day for Year 5 & 6. We saw Jesus' life unfold before our eyes. The drama and setting was stunning. Here are a few photos from our day.
We had an amazing time at Braeside in Devizes and here are a sample of the photos from our activities.
What an amazing morning it was at the Mini-Marathon! A massive congratulations to all the children who ran it and received their medals! What a fantastic achievement!
I also would like to say a huge thanks to all the parents and staff who have supported the children in the run up to the event and during the event. It was lovely to see so many children taking part and parents staying until the end, even if it did pour with rain! A special thanks to Sarah Waddington for all her hard work-those warm-ups were inspirational! Also like say a special thanks to Fi and Rob Stahl for taking some fab pictures that you can find above! And last but not least, Vicky Robinson for her amazing 'sweeping' during the races-running the treacherous course 3 times!!
A huge well done also goes to the parents who took part in the adults fun race- Paul Goodridge, Steve Robinson, Helen Mayers and Andrew Crowe- all running amazingly well even if some people wanted to blame it on injury
Finally-some great news! Our under 9 boys category came 2nd out of all the small schools that took part! There were 14 small schools competing altogether -such a great result! Well done boys!
NEWS JUST IN! Under 9 girls came 2nd too! What a brilliantly brilliant result
Our lovely Year 1 children visited St Edmund's girls school for a skills tournament and we had a lot of fun! We were also awarded with the prize for being the best at showing team work out of lots of other different schools. We were really happy with that! :) Also, our very own Theo Brown, was awarded the prize for the child who showed the best determination. Well done children!
On Friday 24th March we held a non uniform day to raise money for Comic Relief. Some of our Year 5 and 6 girls also asked to hold a cake sale and impressively organised this themselves. As you can see this was very popular and we are grateful for all the amazing donations we received.
We were very pleased to have raised a total of £249.53 through this event.
St.Nicholas football team entered a tournament in October that had matches spread out over the school year.
So far in the tournaments we have come second both times, this was the last of the matches in this tournament.
On Tuesday the 14th of March, we went to Sarum St Paul's where it was hosted, there were 4 other schools there.
We we drew all our games which was really good, we didn't lose at all :)
There was another team who had exactly the same score as us so we had a really tense penalty shoot out to see who came 3rd or 4th! Unfortunately we came fourth but we scored some impressive penalties!
We look forward to our next appearance as a team! Well done everyone!
On Tuesday 17 January St Nicholas's football team held a football tournament at our school! Unfortunately St Nicholas came second but we did get into the finals :)
We played against Winterbourne Earls and Sarum St Pauls. This was the second tournament we have played with one more still to go so St Nicholas still have a chance to win one!
At the tournament we we won one game and lost two games. In total, we got 3 points out of all the games. We lost the first match against Winterbourne Earls. We won the second match against Sarum St Pauls. Then unfortunately we lost the finals against Winterbourne Earls. So we came second out of the three teams. It was a big and exciting tournament.
One of the best parts of the whole tournament was when we got the choice of a pear or a packet of raisins.
This year at St Nicholas' School we are trying to think more about how fortunate we are and have decided to support some worthwhile charities.
After our Harvest Festival we held a MacMillan Coffee Morning which was a lovely opportunity to chat to parents and grandparents over a cup of tea and some delicious home made cake. Thank you to everyone who made cake, helped on the day and made a donation, we are pleased to announce that we raised an impressive £133.
