Our girls chess team played in the first girls only Nottinghamshire chess league and performed very well indeed. Nearly all of the girls came away with some points and even those who didn't manage to create any checkmates, still had a great time and gained valuable tournament experience. I'm certainly very proud of them all!
It was that fun time of year again for Class 1 and Reception to pull on their wellies and go for a walk around Keyworth. We spotted how Autumn is changing our landscape, along with a little bit of autumnal mud! !
On Monday Class 1 and Reception got very excited when they voyaged on a coach all the way back to Medieval Sherwood forest. Here we met with Maid Marion and Robin Hood. We also spotted lots of wintry woodland treats along with learning about Christmas traditions from Medieval times. It was a cold, bright sunny [...]

The children in Class 5 thoroughly enjoyed creating poppies using collage for our contribution to the Willow Brook wreaths to be displayed at the church and in our school grounds to remember those who died in World War 1 and the conflicts that followed.
Today has, indeed, been a fun-filled Yabba-Dabba-Doo day! Again, there’s a great community spirit on days where we are working together to support others. The playground always looks amazing when it’s full of costumes and smiles and today was no exception! From cavemen to veloceraptors, Pudseys to pyjamas… and even a prehistoric fire, the [...]
The girls played their first cup match of the year against Tollerton, who had already had a very successful start to the season. Our Willow Brook team took a while to get settled into playing away, with the wind in our faces and went two goals down before half time. After a little chat and [...]
