MINI-POLICE - MARCH 2018
Niamh and Dan from Year 5 visited the control room at Nottinghamshire Police Headquarters as part of the mini-police scheme. Here is a picture of them inside a police van.
Some more of our children are visiting the Police Headquarters on Tuesday. We will let you know what they get up to in next week’s newsletter.
A huge congratulations to Years 3 and 4 for all their hard work throughout the rehearsals and also during all four performances of their Ye-Ha show. It was a “mud-flinging, gun-slinging, hip-swinging, song-singing” finest hoe-down in the West!! Also, a big thanks to Mrs Cowling and all the staff who have helped her throughout. It wouldn't be possible without you!!
We were also lucky to have the script writer, Mr Craig Hawes, watch the show on Thursday evening. He said “it was the best school play I have ever seen”. Wow!!
GLASSES RECYCLING BOX - FEBRUARY 2018
As you are aware, we have an unwanted glasses collection box in school reception. This is part of a scheme being run by Specsavers, who are working closely with Vision Aid Overseas, to help transform access to eye care for people living in developing countries. The box has been emptied today and pictured here is Mr Cunliffe with Tilly from 1BD, who suggested the box for school, Sophie the Manager of Bingham Specsavers and Amit, who is a fully trained ophthalmologist. If you do have any unwanted glasses, please keep sending them into school. Thank you.
RUSHCLIFFE LEARNING ALLIANCE - PUPIL PARLIAMENT - FEBRUARY 2018
Two of our School Councillors - Jacob and Ruby from Year 6 - visited Rushcliffe Arena on 16th February to meet with people who work for Rushcliffe Borough Council.

GOODBYE MRS LIDDLE - DECEMBER 2017
Mrs Liddle spoke to Cecilia, Ruby O and Ruby T from Year 6. They asked her some questions and the following piece was written by the children:-
Mrs Terena Liddle has been working at Carnarvon Primary School for 18 years as a Teaching Assistant and is now sadly retiring. Even though she will miss us so much she will have a very exciting time, due to the fact she and her husband are taking up Scottish dancing. She has actually been dancing for 8 years.
She will look forward to spending more time with her family, especially her grandchildren. Mrs Liddle has loved her time here and will miss the children and staff the most. She has loved watching the children learn. She especially loves it when they have a ‘lightbulb’ moment.
What she has loved most about Carnarvon is everyone helping everyone else. She has worked with Mrs Marriott the longest and has loved working with her and will miss her time in the Year 6 team with both Mr Hall and Mrs Marriott.
She says she and Mrs Niebylski have had a good laugh making props for all of our plays together.
On a scale of 1-10 on how much she will miss Carnarvon? She said 15!
We will miss you so much Mrs Liddle. Good luck and thanks for all you have done for Carnarvon. Xx
