  • Great start for Spanish students at NFS

    Here is a peak at what our students have been up to in Spanish recently...

    Year 7: what an amazing start year 7 have made! We have been learning numbers, greetings, classroom phrases and family members. So many students have already got off to an amazing start with memorising their vocabulary and enthusiasm is exemplary. Well done!

    Year 8: we have been learning to talk about who we get on well with, feelings and daily routine. Many year 8s have performed some outstanding Spanish role plays on the topic of making arrangements to out. Keep up the good work!

  • Reading Journals

    All students now have reading journals!

    As another way of helping to develop reading at Nottingham Free School, we have issued every student with a reading journal. In it, they must record the book they are currently reading and what page they are on. Staff are checking these during DEAR. Some students may also wish to write reviews of books or give them a star rating. The students will have these journals on them at all times and they will be going home with them so if parents would like to keep up to date with their child's reading they can have a look at them too.

    Happy reading!

    Encourage your child to represent the school in the Nottinghamshire Cross Country League!

    We made a HUGE first impression at last year's Nottinghamshire Schools Cross Country League!

    Whilst some people could not think of anything worse than running 3k and 4k Cross Country on Autumn/Winter Saturday mornings, some of our amazing students did exactly that and have achieved nothing short of an outstanding set of results to reward them for their efforts.

    Proudly, our students achieved:

    Y8 Boys - 4th

    Y8/9 Girls - 2nd

    Y7 Boys - 2nd

    This year...we are chasing more! If you think your child might want to participate, please get them to see Mrs Singleton-Jones for a perm...

  • China!

    NFS now has a link school in China

    We are really excited to embark on a four year project to link with a school in Ningbo, China. Our participation will ensure that students in both schools will be able to form friendships, share learning experiences and have the opportunity to visit each other.

    Our first event is for our students to write a pen-pal letter to one of their peers in Ningbo.

    Don't forget to hand this to Mrs Brown by 4th October.

    Lucky schools' ballot tickets!

    We had an amazing time with 8 students who were lucky enough tot be drawn out of the hat to attend Court 1 at Wimbledon, on men's Quarter Finals Day!

    Lucky us were able to watch Marin Cilic beat Gilles Muller in a 5 set thriller, followed by the brief but great game of Djokovic vs Berdych, where Djokovic unfortunately had to retire through injury.

    Fingers crossed we will be lucky enough to get more tickets next year.

    We even got to mingle with the presenters - see our photo with John Inverdale!
