Panto – What Fun!

Thursday 18th January

Thanks to everyone who made it possible for our school to watch a special performance of Cinderella at the Kings Theatre.  It was fantastic and we all laughed a lot, even the Jambo’s in the school!

Well done everyone your behaviour and manners were a real credit to yourselves and the school.

Extra lovely as we saw a few ex pupils – Stephen, Michael and Scott!


Bring on next year’s panto……

Patron of Reading visits…

Today the author John Fardell (our Patron of Reading) came into school to make up stories with some of the pupils using his well-known character Manfred the Baddie.

Chase, James, Lewis & Robert had a great time.

They each worked on a story. James’s story had boys with propeller hats travelling to the moon to eat cheese! There were aliens, robots and UFO’s. Chase had made an amazing lair for Manfred with many inventions such as a secret spy hole and a place to store his loot! Lewis designed a new car for Manfred to rob a bank – it had propellers, booster rockets and many other inventions. Robert drew some fantastic illustrations for his story that involved an evil cake and a boy called Tom.

Here are some photos of their fantastic work

Thank you very much John and what marvellous inventions and stories you created boys.

Rowanfield had 2 Special Guests last week ….Recognise them?

Bakers Delight!


Members of the Zone, their Cake & Card were tweeted across the globe this week when long time friend of the school, Angus Hogg retired from his role as Chair of the CarnegieUK Trust.

CarnegieUK Trust have supported the Nurture Zone in many initiatives to raise attainment and achievement – not least with our state of the art kitchen, all of which have also impacted greatly on the rest of the school.

Pupils from the Nurture Zone baked a cake  and designed a card especially to celebrate Angus’s retirement and to say thanks for all his visits to and interest in the Zone.

It is not every pupil that can say  they made a card that has been held and read by such famous Scots.file2

Thanks Angus & Good Luck!


STAY TUNED for our next exciting venture supported by Carnegie #bookbuddy
