Competition winner!

Congratulations to Johan in Year 1

It was show and tell morning at school today when the Cadwell Park rally and firework competition winner, Johan had some pretty unique things to show his school friends.
The Cadwell Park Safety Car was joined by the ‘Group B’ Metro 6R4 of Dan Ellmore, and after a quick recce, 5 year old Johan showed each class around both cars.
After that, Johan was presented with a framed image of his rally car livery worked up on to an actual rally car.
As if Johan and his friends weren’t excited enough, Cadwell Park also revealed that Lincoln-based RACE Performance and Allen Signs Ltd were currently working on a
real-life version of his winning rally car design, which he’ll see on Sunday at the big season finale at Cadwell Park.
We hope that we inspired a few budding motorsport stars and engineers of the future with the visit.
A big thanks to Dan for taking a morning out of preparing the Metro 6R4 for the rally on Sunday, where he will make his competitive debut in a car which is synonymous with the rally heritage at Cadwell.
Now, the countdown begins.
Tickets for the Stage Rally and Firework Spectacular are still available from
Check out their Facebook page for more information.

Junior children will be allowed to attend the junior fair unsupervised from 2.30pm to 3.15pm, when they will be dismissed. If you wish to meet your child, please arrange a place with them as they will not be in their classroom when the doors open. As always, the fair will be extremely busy.

Cinema Visit – Friday 20th December
We will be visiting the cinema on the morning of the last day of term. More details, with permission slips, will be sent when we know which films are available to us.

End of Term – Friday 20th December
As we have done previously, we are offering parents the option to collect their children (or them making their own way home) at 2.00pm on the Friday that we break up. A letter will be issued nearer the time. As has happened previously, some families will take advantage of this opportunity, whilst other children will stay to the end of the school day, completing festive activities and playing games.

If you require any further information about any of the above, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
