Macmillan Magic

This morning we hosted our annual Macmillan fundraiser and raised a new record total of £1376.83. 

Thanks go out to everyone who supported the event, both before, through contributions for the stalls, and to those who came along today. It really was another lovely community event for such a worthwhile cause.

Thank you also to the children and staff who baked and crafted items to sell on the stalls and also to Mr and Mrs Edwards who coordinated the event.

Trailblazers Y3/4 - sneaky, sneaky squirrels

After playing our sneaky squirrel game, the children helped move our new logs to the wood store - they decided to make a human chain and all worked hard till the job was done.

We then played a memory game which saw them scavenging around the wood for natural items. 

We finished with a hot chocolate, a roasted sweet chestnut and a play on the challenges in the wood. 

I was struck today by how kind the children were to each other - several 'squirrels' shared their scavenged nuts with other 'squirrels' who had found none...even though it was a competition.

Trailblazers Y5 - risky business

After our new nutty game where Molly B was crowned top squirrel, some kiddies looked at risk management whilst others cracked on with their roundhouse - I've been really impressed with these children's continued engagement in their project.

The Halloween lanterns are coming on well, and the children were very impressive when it came to identifying and mitigating the risks inherent in the manufacture process.

The Great Kilburn Bake Off

The lower school children thoroughly enjoyed learning how to make bread with the help of Warburtons today. We hope you liked tasting their ‘breadghog’ as much as we enjoyed making it!

Trailblazers Y6 - looking after your nuts

We started with a game involving sweet-chestnuts; we had to be squirrels - hide a few, steal a few and then remember where we'd hidden our own. The game involved cunning, secrecy, slyness and memory...turns out KB is the top squirrel, retaining all of his own nuts and pilfering 4 others!

Some then focused on managing risk, producing a risk-assessment for the manufacture of a Halloween lantern - they did a great job. Others worked with Mrs S to make mini-zip wires for the munchkins - this involved teamwork, testing / evaluation and the use of tools. 

Thanks to parents for the cans.

Restart a Heart Day

Derbyshire’s emergency services have been working with the children today, delivering life saving CPR training as part of the British Heart Foundation’s (BHF) ‘Restart a Heart’ campaign.

World Restart a Heart Day is an annual initiative which aims to train as many people as possible in CPR in one day, so that more people know these life saving skills.

The children really enjoyed learning these important life-skills and were fascinated by the Fire Engines on the playground.
