Lower School musical instruments

As part of our Lower School science topic, the children in Year 3 and 4 have designed and made their own musical instruments.  Here are a selection of photographs showing our proud Year 3 children with their fabulous creations.  Thank you all for helping the children to design their instrument and providing them with the materials that they needed.

AVSSP Cross Country Competiton

Last Wednesday, pupils from across the school enjoyed a cross country competition at Eyes Meadow, Duffield. The competition was organised by the Amber Valley School Sports Partnership.  A video of this competition can be viewed using the link below.

Thank you to Mr Kirby for once again passing on some amazing photographs of our children enjoying the competition.

Sing2gether performance

Yesterday morning, our Year 3 class were fortunate enough to join with pupils from Horsley C of E Primary School, Horsley Woodhouse Primary School and Richardson Endowed Primary School for a mass choir performance.  This was the culmination of a project called 'sing2gether' which was led by Melanie Pearson of the Derbyshire Music Education Hub. The project aimed to teach the children a selection of songs over the course of just three lessons at school.

The pupils and staff at all schools have worked incredibly hard to learn the songs and their parents were rewarded with a performance which was a wonderful celebration of their children's talents. 

We would like to thank Melanie, Rachel and Christina from the Derbyshire Music Education Hub for making our performance such a memorable occasion. 

I have attached some photographs of the event for you to enjoy.

Mini Mukker Killer Kilometre

Well done to all the children who took part in the Mini Mukker Killer Kilometre today! Everyone got very wet and muddy in order to raise money for Comic Relief. What an incredible day! 

Thanks to all the parents and family members who came along to support the event and to all the people who helped to run the event and make it such a memorable day for all the children.
