  • Kwic Cricket

    Published 15/07/19

    Needwood played in front of a full house at Lords! (Rolleston Cricket Club) The atmosphere was incredible.  The team played amazingly and will surely entice their fellow peers to get into the game.  Everything that was wanted to be achieved was achieved. Fun, participation and so much more on top.  We managed to score high but lost too many wickets knocking us out of the tournament.  I don’t think the England and Wales Cricket Board, and those that love cricket could have asked for anymore of our super team.

  • Mental Health Week

    Published 07/07/19

    We recognised mental health week https://www.mentalhealth.org.uk/campaigns/ mental-health-awareness-week and, despite, ironically being SAT week, we  focussed on and emphasises the importance of good mental health not just the absence of a mental health problem.  Year 6 children across the forest family enjoyed several mindfulness sessions which supported their preparation for their examinations and having an appropriate mindset to engage with them, We say well done to them for their positive attitudes towards their examinations. They started each day with breakfast, physical activity (in the form of dance and aerobics), positive affirmations and time with each other in order to discuss common fears and how to overcome them, has meant that they have entered their SATs with a positive and indeed, ‘bring it on’, attitude. We also thank our Governors for their work in monitoring compliance of SAT administration – not the most exciting thing but an important duty none the less.
