Enterprise Cake Sale

Thank you to all those families who took part in our Enterprise cake sale this week. The children all spoke of how much they loved baking at home and really enjoyed having the opportunity to visit our cake sale.


We could clearly see, from the creativity of the cakes, people had spent so much time and effort in making the buns, with the children and the children were eager to share with their friends, which buns they had made/brought to school. We were overwhelmed by the amount of buns received and very grateful.


The children all had an opportunity to visit the shop, choose their buns and pay for them. They were also involved in enterprise work in the classrooms, including working as a team and product service and design. The children had a lovely day.


The rest of the cakes have been on sale at the end of Wednesday and Thursday and have raised the grand total of £203 for school funds.


This money will used to support learning, in the classroom, and give children opportunities that they would otherwise be unable to experience.

Goodbye and Good Luck Mrs Palmer

Today we have said a fond Farewell to ‘Our Queenie’ Mrs Palmer. We hope you all enjoyed our impromptu Flash Mob for her yesterday, I know she did. Today, in Assembly, Mrs Palmer showed great restrain through the Queen’s speech and a visit from her royal servants and specifically enjoyed the cream tea and watching her movie, we managed the whole assembly without a tear (not that the other staff did!).

We would like to say a huge thank you to Mrs Palmer as she moves into her retirement. Mrs Palmer has worked in school for a long time, firstly as a parent helper, a teaching assistant and more recently as a teacher (for 11 years). We will miss Mrs Palmer’s cheery disposition and positive nature. However, Mrs Palmer is leaving behind her a better school, for having worked here for all those years.

Thank you Mrs Palmer from all of the parents and children here at Bolsover Infant and Nursery School, past and present and please do not be a stranger in the future. x

Sports Relief 2016

Children had great fun on Friday, doing their part for Sports Relief. Nursery and Reception children enjoyed the sponsored walk to Hornscroft park and especially enjoyed the ‘Paint Waddle’ on their return. Key Stage 1 children had a fabulous time taking part in the ‘Sports Relief Tough Mudder’ event and all managed to go home cover in paint. Early indicators show that the school has raised over £1500 so far in sponsors. This money will be split between the school and Sports Relief. The children will be spending the school money on outdoor play equipment for playtime. Thank you to everyone who got involved, by attending or sponsoring, and a great big thank you to the staff who worked hard planning and arranging the event.

International Week and French Breakfast

This week we have all taken part in lots of International Learning, as part of our International Week. Children have learnt, as part of International Day, about Fairness and Equality. Across school children have visited a range of churches, as well as working together to learn about fair trade bananas, sharing and turn taking. Many families also made an early start of Thursday to join us for our French breakfast. The breakfast was a great success and the children were very grateful for their parents attending with them. Thank you to the ladies in catering for making it possible.

Open Evening

We would like to say a huge thank you to all those parents that attended our Parents Open Evening, on Wednesday 2nd March 2016. Attendance was high and we felt the event was really positive. Parents had an opportunity to think about and discuss how to help keep their child stay safe, how they can support them in being happy and healthy and develop their learning skills so that they can be successful. They also had an opportunity to ‘Meet the magician’, practice their goals scoring and develop their bag of dreams. As part of this event parents and children had an opportunity to share their dreams for the future of the school. We are very grateful to those parents who took part and we be ensuring those parents dreams are part of the future plans for the school. A great event!
