Handball practice for Embark Federation!

I was lucky to watch a fantastic Handball session after school which was our first inter-school session for children at Smalley and Kilburn. 

This was a great chance to link together as two schools and practice before the competition in a couple of weeks time. This will hopefully give the children a slight advantage over the other schools attending but more importantly have fun and make friends
with others from the Embark Family.

A huge thank you to Mr Whiteman and Mrs Shaw for organising this and we are looking forward to the next inter school sports session in December. 

Well done children and good luck in the competition.

Premier Sport Archery Competition

Twelve of our years 3 and 4 children were offered an exciting opportunity to compete in an  archery competition held at our school.

Well Done to our Brownlee Triathlon Competitors

Congratulations to all of our Brownlee Triathlon competitors. What an amazing experience the children had, and to cap it all off they were able to meet two-time Olympic and Commonwealth triathlon champion, Alistair Brownlee. What an honour! Many thanks to all the parents and staff who also attended the event to support the children.

 

 

Dig For Victory Garden Party at Markeaton Park

Attention all year 5 and 6 children!

As a brilliant introduction to upper school's World War II topic (which we will start when we come back to school in September), the Friends of Markeaton Park are bringing a 1940s themed family festival including a craft fair and entertainment to Markeaton Park on 27th of August. There will be loads to see and do and should be fun for all the family. Let me know in the comments anything you learn whilst at the festival, should you be able to attend.

AVSSP Tough Runner Event

Here are some photos from the first AVSSP Tough Runner event. The children all had a fantastic night running around the obstacle course and taking part in the team challenges. Straight after this, most of the children rushed back to school for the school disco too. What an exhausting day!

Y5 John Flamsteed Health Day

An exciting morning out for Y5 who were able to experience a wide range of activities at John Flamsteed. Children enthusiastically  undertook taste tests (including crickets) investigated different food groups, and created potions made of natural ingredients. This was an enjoyable way to begin to understand the expectations of Secondary education.

Some of us were happy trying everything!
