Have you Filled a Bucket Today?

i am a bucket filler webThe children in Class IH have been learning about the joy of giving and receiving. The book ‘Have you filled a bucket today?’ written by Carol McCloud has been the inspiration for a new class initiative. Carol believed that everyone is born with an invisible bucket. You can’t see the bucket, but it is there. The bucket holds our good thoughts and our good feelings. When you make someone feel special, you are filling a bucket. 1H have all been bucket fillers this week. They have been trying to spot their classmates doing kind and caring things for others. When they notice something, they fill that person’s bucket. Mrs Hewitt spotted Naomi O helping to zip up someone’s coat, and Mrs Anstey spotted Toby T being very helpful in the Dining Room. Happy bucket filling!

‘Robots are coming’ ……….to The Croft

In assembly, we were introduced to NOA, the humanoid robot.  I really enjoyed seeing NOA talk and move on the stage, do a dance and even some tai chi! 

In the workshop, we all had a lot of fun building and programming our own robot using Lego Mindstorms.  It was really interesting and everybody had a fantastic time.

Netball Masterclass Buzz!

Lucky Years 5 & 6 girls met their netball sporting heroes when they were invited to a netball masterclass at Wasps Netball, Ricoh Arena, Coventry, by Tamsin Greenway, Wasps’ Director of Netball.

The newly formed Wasps Netball team, who will play in the forthcoming Vitality Netball Superleague, welcomed The Croft and seven other local schools to their community event.  The Wasps helped the girls work on their movement, footwork and ball skills, with fun and lively coaching sessions - try bouncing a ball whilst moving continually from a standing, sitting and lying down position, it’s much harder than you think!

The girls had a memorable day with the Wasps and even had a chance to play on the Wasps’ home court.  The court will be in use again for the next home fixture when Wasps play Hertfordshire Mavericks on Sunday 5 March – new fans at The Croft will be cheering on Tamsin and the team!'
