If you haven’t already, take a look at the information about a new healthy lifestyle opportunity coming to Crossdale this term:
Roll of Honour
Hamish (in Reception) scored his second hat-trick in two weeks at football on Saturday - well done Hamish! We hear that your goal celebrations are rather fantastic!
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'.
Mr Cresswell and Miss Seedhouse
For the summer term, choir practice is moving from a lunchtime session to Mondays straight after school (3.30pm to 4.15pm). This is to enable our rehearsals to be a little longer, in preparation for our performances at the Crossdale Music Evening and the Keyworth Show. We will be performing songs that we sung at the Young Voices concert in January, and also some new ones.
Should your child wish to join choir this term, please feel free to call into the office to collect a copy of the letter below, or see Mr Brierley. Please ensure that the permission letter is returned to school before our first practice on Monday. We are looking forward to some more great performances!
On Thursday 30th March, 4 of our Year 6 pupils went to Heymann primary school to join up with other Year 6 children from schools within the Equals Trust, as part of a story telling event. This followed on from all Year 6 children taking part in story telling workshops at school.
The children performed their story incredibly well in front of an audience of parents and they should be very proud of themselves (we certainly are!).
