  • £1612 Raised

    Published 22/07/17

    We did it! The community of Roebuck Academy has raised a massive £1612 for Scott Everett to help towards his stem cell treatment that he needs in Moscow. A huge thank you to everyone who has donated. Over £1300 was raised by July's Colour Run event and this has now been topped up with a further £252 from Gryphon House, who won this term's House Point competition. Gryphon have been trying to win for the RSPCA but have chosen instead to donate their winning money to Scott. The school is proud to hand over £1612 to the Everett's and we wish them all the success in the world in the next few months.

    Published 22/07/17

    Congratulations to Gryphon House who won this summer term's House Point competition. They had led throughout most of the term. It was a great achievement, winning with 252 House Points in total. The House Captains for Gryphon, Lexi (Y6) and Harry (Y5), have chosen to not donate the winning money to their charity RSPCA, but they wanted to donate the money to Scott Everett's stem cell treatment instead - a great gesture.

  • Colour Run!

    Published 19/07/17

    The school held an amazing Colour Run last week to raise money for one of our children's dads Scott Everett. Scott needs stem cell treatment and his family are trying to raise £30,000 so that he can go to Moscow to receive the treatment he urgently needs. Everyone at Roebuck took part in a Colour Run event, led by the RSA, to help fund raise for this worthwhile cause. We are delighted to say that we have already raised over £1000 to donate. Thank you and please keep the money coming in.

  • Year 1 Maths Workshop

    Published 05/07/17

    On Wednesday afternoon, Year 1 enjoyed a maths workshop. We practice counting in multiples of 10 and applied this when playing games such as 'Buzz'. We then used Numicon and diennes apparatus to make two-digit numbers. After this, we played number bond tennis and used ten frames to make number bonds. Mrs Elson was very impressed with the positive attitude to learning and the love for maths seen during the afternoon. It was a pleasure working with Year 1. Thank you to all the older Year 2 children who were helpers.

  • Phoenix Win Sports Day

    Published 15/06/17

    Congratulations to Phoenix House who have won this year's sports day. It was a glorious day and all of the children had a great time, competing in different events to score points for their House. In the morning, our Nursery class did a flat race, relay race and obstacle race. We then had sprint races, long distance events, tennis relays and field events where all KS1 and KS2 children took part. The sportmanship, determination and perseverance on show was exceptional.

    In the afternoon, all children took part in a round robin event where they scored points for their Houses in nine different activities. Once the points were totalled up, Phoenix came out on top with over 2700 points. Gryphon House finished in second place.

    A big well done to all of the children who took part despite the sweltering heat at times. Thank you to so many families for turning up to support and staying to have a picnic with their children at lunchtime. Thanks also to Mr Downie for organising the whole day.

  • Competition Winners!

    Published 18/05/17

    Congratulations to the eight children who were announced today as the winners of our Stevenage Football Club Supporters Association badge design competition. Lots of children through the school took part in the competition set by our local football club. They had to design a new membership badge for the SFCSA. A winner was chosen from each class by staff at the football club. The winners were announced in a special whole-school assembly this morning and were presented with a winners medal and their design by Lewis who leads on school partnership for SFC. All pupils at Roebuck are automatically members of SFCSA and this gives our families good discounts on many SFC products and in local restaurants and retailers. It gives each child a membership badge and card, as well as discounted rates to buy match tickets at The Lamex. It also gives one child each half term the chance to be the SFC matchday mascot where they get to lead the players out on to the pitch at the start of a EFL game. Please visit the community section of our website to find out more.

  • Terrific Tournament

    Published 18/05/17

    A huge well done to our greta netball team who played in the Stevenage Schools' tournament on Tuesday this week. The A team played in a round robin event playing against the top six other school teams from across the town. This included many larger schools. Our girls won the first two games, scoring fourteen goals and only conceding two. We then lost narrowly 4-3 to Peartree School and were beaten by Knebworth and St Vincent de Paul. In the final game, our girls drew 6-6 with St Margaret of Clitherow School who this year won the Stevenage league. This was a great performance and a great way to finish the season. It was a wonderful tournament and we are very proud of all eight girls (pictured above) who have been terrific competing at this level all season.

  • Cinderella Rockerfella

    Published 17/04/17

    Our amazing Year 3 and Year 4 children performed Cinderella Rockerfella in the last week of the spring term. It was a fantastic productio with top quality singing and some really good acting, speaking and dancing. The children looked great in their costumes and had a fabulous time working as a team, putting on the show for a large audience. Performances were in both the afternoon and evening and one family left saying, 'Wow! I am blown away. What talented children. What a great performance!'

    A big thank you to all families for their support. A big thank you to all of the staff who put the show together and a big thank you to the amazing children who excelled and did themselves so proud.

  • Book fair and World Book Day bring reading alive at Roebuck!

    Published 09/03/17

    Last Thursday, children and staff celebrated World Book Day by dressing up as their favourite book characters as part of our themed week based around a class book. We even had a bunch of 'Wallies' as staff dressed up as the favourite character from the picture book 'Where's Wally?' The week ended with excitement as our book fair arrived and all of the classes enjoyed time browsing through the books and creating their wish lists.

    During Parents' evenings this week, the book fair has been open and we have been overwhelmed by the support from children and parents. Roebuck school has raised a whopping £1353.76 which means Scholastic will give the school £752.26 back to spend on books. Over the next few days, children and teachers will be busy writing down their wishlists and Mrs Thomas is getting very excited about spending all of the money on lots of lovely new books!

    A huge thank you to everyone who supported our book fair - happy reading!
