Latest updates from our school
Team Equality have been working hard making decisions about the Whigby project in English recently. Everyone had to make a careful decision about whether a bypass should be built in a small village. After that, the children wrote some powerful speeches using fantastic vocabulary to persuade others to support their viewpoints. Today the children spoke up about their beliefs in the outdoor classroom. Well done team!
Well done to our pupils for winning the Mathematics Star of the fortnight award. They have all worked hard both inside and outside of school and achieved great success in Mathematics. A double headteacher’s award was also presented today to Logan, who has been terrific in and out of school this week and Preston, who has been improving our locality by litter picking on the way to school- doing the right thing because it is the right thing to do. We are so proud of you.
Many thanks to all the dinner staff for creating such a brilliant atmosphere during our party celebration of the Royal Wedding today. All the children and the school wish Prince Harry and his new bride, Meghan, a long and happy life together.
Also, many thanks to Simon from Frost’s Hallmark in Heanor for supplying us with the balloons to help to make our day a bit more special.
We reflected on our personal development and highlights since September and chose our own top Trailblazer; it was lovely hearing the children speaking about their peers with such admiration and pride.
After this, we made sculptures to represent our Trailblazer journey - post construction, the children chose a partner and shared their design and personal reflections.
While all this was going on, Mrs Fox knocked up a batch of delightful doughnuts with four of the children...deeeeeeeeeeelicious!
Thanks to the children, Mrs Fox and Blayze for a great run of TB!
A chilly morning in the woods - coats and wooly hats were needed!
We started with a game of hide and seek before looking at some locusts and crickets kindly donated by Sheila - the children found them fascinating and this prompted us to do a bug hunt in the TB wood; we found a diverse range of little critters, but voted a centipede the top find.
After this, some children cooked, others created nature art whilst a final group made a dream catcher for our resident brown bear.
