Latest updates from our school
Well done to our pupils for winning the class achievement award this week . They have all worked hard both inside and outside of school and achieved great success.
Well done also to Ellie, Jessica and Bella who won the Headteacher's Award for their work to improve our school environment
We are so proud of you all.
After a couple of games in the wood, some children got creative with flour, while others made ballistic missiles with the aim of bettering the 45 metre record set by Y4 yesterday.
The flour children were creative and focused, working well in their groups. The missile children had cunning ideas and showed great skill with the tools used...and their missiles were phenomenal...all punched past 75 metres, with the winning missile sailing to a staggering 90 meters!
A group of nine plus a little stow-away took on the mighty Eyes Meadow orienteering course. Split into two teams, the children battled the searing heat, scorched ground and extreme distances to pull in 5th and 8th-ish places.
The children showed great determination and a canny ability to interpret the map and plan their routes; they were a real credit to the school!
Thanks to parents who transported children and supported at the event.
The children had a wonderful night at the school disco dancing and singing their hearts out. The hall was sweltering but it didn't stop the children from throwing some shapes and having a great time. Many thanks to the PTFA and the parent helpers who came along to support the event and thanks also to the lads from Gazza's Disco Hire for putting on a great show.

A fearsome flour-beast was spotted in our wood this morning; he left his dragon-like footprints on the TB HQ steps, through the wood and disappearing down his burrow.
Inspired by these footprints, a group of children used sieves and flour to make their own marks on the forest floor - they had an exciting time and created some wonderful patterns.
Whilst this was going on, another group made ballistic rockets and a launcher, just incase we needed protection should the flour beast return; the rockets were incredible, flying 50 + yards, with the accuracy to hit a hay-bail; if he comes back, he stands no chance!
Our talented team of cyclists finished 3rd in today’s County Go- Ride Competition at the County Finals, representing Amber Valley against 9 of the best teams from across Derbyshire.
They have been training hard at school for the event and with the guidance and support of Coach Whiteman, performed brilliantly.
As a School, we are so proud of your huge achievement.
Well done to our Tough Runner Teams of 2018 for competing with such enthusiasm on one of the hottest days of the year! The course was tough (as you would expect from the name) but the children all pushed themselves and had fun leaping walls, crawling under cargo nets, carrying medicine balls and racing over a gruelling 20 metre duck walk! A huge thank you to the AVSSP for putting on such a great event and helping our kids make memories.
Well done to our pupils for winning the class achievement award this week . They have all worked hard both inside and outside of school and achieved great success. Well done also to Amber, who won the Headteacher's Award for her attitude, effort and craftsmanship in the construction of her bat box and to Lewis who embodied everything we would like from our pupils during the Go Ride event when, after a crash on the first bend, he picked himself up, dusted himself down, got back in the saddle to take overall first place. What an achievement.
We are so proud of you all.
