Trent Bridge Class Presentation
Trent Bridge were very excited to welcome their parents and family members in to class to see all the fantastic work they have been doing! We started off by introducing ourselves to the parents and told them what we were going to present. We then showed them a video of all of our fantastic hard work and lessons which we had set to our favourite music (yes some of us sang along too!).
Goals Rising at The Phoenix

The Spalding Priory School 5 v 2 Ambergate Sports College
Ambergate travelled to Spalding in high spirits and full of confidence due to their previous win at The Spalding Priory School. Both teams fielded different players which set up the game to be an interesting one.
The conditions were very cold and wet, therefore it was very important that the players warmed up properly to reduce to risk of injury.
Once again the team prepared excellently with the kit and equipment being laid out in the changing rooms the night before.
Interesting Reading!This term Mrs Pell’s, upper school English group is taking part in a reading project. Each week two students from the group read a children’s story of their choice to lower school students in Trent class. The aim of the project is to increase the students’ speaking and listening skills, focussing on volume, character and projection. The students are learning the importance of using an enthusiastic and interesting tone of voice to keep the younger children engaged.
