Pupils as published writers.
Recently some children from Crossdale entered Young Writers' national writing competition 'Ancient Adventures'. The pupils' mini sagas were inspired by history and had a 100 word limit. We are delighted to have found out that Erin Hughes, Isabelle Freeman, Jasmine Goodman and Holly Winter have all had their stories chosen to be published in a book titled 'Ancient Adventures – Nottinghamshire'. A huge well done to the children for their hard work and creativity – having work published is something to be incredibly proud of and we hope that they continue to develop their writing talent.

Morning Drop Off
Please could we ask all parents dropping children off in the morning to take extra care not to drop children off on the corner of Crossdale Drive near the school. On a couple of occasions it has been reported that children quickly opening car doors when being dropped off at the corner has been hazardous to children walking on the pavements. Thank you for your support.
Lego League Junior Expo
There is a Lego League Junior Expo for 6 to 9 years old at Loughborough University on 22nd June.
Here is a brief cut and paste info from the website below:
“The programme is designed to introduce young children to science and engineering concepts and teamwork, whilst engaging participants in valuable STEM experiences relevant to the world around them.
The Expo will involve teams of up to six children who will research and solve real-world issues, design and build a LEGO® model with moving parts and present their research on a poster.” http://www.lboro.ac.uk/internal/news/2016/may/lego-expo.html
Roll of Honour
* Rosie Glasgow passed her Primary Theatre Craft / Dance exam in April, with the Keyworth School of Theatre Dance. She recently also passed her Primary Tap Dancing exam (with distinction).
Please contact the school office, preferably by email marked ‘Roll of Honour’, if you would like to share the achievements of your children with the rest of the school community. We love to hear about what they have been doing outside of school.
