Summer Term Comes to a close



Wednesday 22nd July sees the end of what has been another positive and happy year at Nettleham Church of England Aided Junior School. We end our term with the sun shining and a magnificent group of children filling the school with enthusiasm, creativity and zeal.

Over the past term our pupils have gained a great deal from a massive range of curriculum enrichment activities – our Sinfonia ViVA project based on the Magna Carta was simply stunning – we coupled this work with a new and innovative project with the Royal Institute of British Architects, a group of Y5 children attended the preview screening of their film at the British Film Institute in London, we have been a key school in the Making History Project which is developing at very interesting view of family and heritage and included a visit to school from Dr Nick Barrett;  also we have seen theatre companies in school, art work to brighten up St Barnabas Hospice Day Centre, trips to Whisby, Scampton base, Gibraltar Point, Kingswood, Belton House, Conningsby, Lincoln Cathedral and the Holocaust Centre amongst others. Alongside these there have been many further enrichment activities including sports activities such as our athletics teams performing incredibly well at City Athletics tournaments, Bikewise, swimming, visits for Secondary School teachers and ongoing coaching in a range of sports.

There have been so many outstanding achievements, so many challenges overcome and so many massive leaps this year for our children – seeing this makes our job in school a privilege and a joy.

Fond Farewells to staff

We are so very sad to say goodbye to our wonderful crossing patrol Margaret Carter, who seen the children safely into school through all weathers for the best part of three decades – we wish her the very best of luck in the future.

Saying goodbye to our Year 6 pupils never gets any easier – they are an amazing, talented and creative group of children and we are honoured to have been part of their education. We look forward to hearing of great things from them in the future.

Wednesday 22nd July – Please note that school closes half an hour early at 3pm.

Opening on Thursday 3rd September – School begins again at 8.55am.

Wishing you a wonderful and warm summer break.
