KS1 Cross Country – 24.03

For all of those in Grasshopers attending Thursday’s (24th March) cross country, we have been asked that parents do not arrive on site (Oldbury Wells School) until after 15:40 – to allow for Oldbury school transport, parents and children to leave at the end of their school day.

 

The first event (which will be year 1 girls) will be beginning at 16:15, so please ensure children arrive before this to allow for getting ready/ in position for race start.

 

Myself (Mr Harley) and Miss Lewis will be in attendance to help organise children to their races. Once your child has finished their race, they can leave (if you wish), but please inform me when you do.

 

The current race order is Y1 Girls, Y1 Boys, Y2 Girls, Y2 Boys, and the last race is due to finish at 16:45.

 

Any questions before then, please feel free to email (scorpions@brownclee.shropshire.sch.uk).

Request: Spare Shin Pads

We have a girls’ football competition this week  – which requires players to wear shin pads. A lot of our players do not have shin pads. If anyone has any spare or do not mind lending a pair (to be returned), it would be very much appreciated!

The tournament is on the afternoon of Thursday 17th March, so any pairs brought in before then would be fantastic.

ESSP Swimming Gala – William Brookes

Ten Pupils from Scorpions and Fireflies took part in the East Shropshire Sports Partnership swimming gala at William Brookes School this Thursday.

 

All the swimmers showed fantastic determination, team-spiritedness and confidence in helping Team Brown Clee to eventually finish in an incredible second place overall – an especially impressive feat given the small size of our school!
