Roll of honour
Rocco Jobson (Y1) has been offered a place on the men's artistic boys squad at the Notts Gymnastics Academy following a trial last weekend. We are very proud of the hard work and determination he has shown. What a fantastic achievement Rocco!
George Rhodes (Yr2) has just passed his 5th belt in kick boxing and is now a blue belt. Well done George.
On Saturday Ava Kitty decided that she was going to make a cake by herself for the first time. She weighed, mixed, iced and decorated. She did it all (other than the oven, and the washing up)! Ava then cut up her cake and sold pieces to her family, including her sister. In total she raised £11. Ava then cleared her money box putting this with the money raised. In total Ava donated over £16 for Children In Need. What a thoughtful act of kindness Ava – well done!
We are always keen to hear about children's achievements outside of school; if you would like these sharing in the Crossdale News then please email the school office with the subject heading 'Roll of honour'.
