We are very proud of our school and all of the opportunities that we give our pupils. We value all individuals, pupils and adults, and seek to ensure that everyone reaches their full potential, leaving them ready for the next stage in their learning journey.

We believe that we are an open and welcoming school and have excellent relationships with our parents. This is very important to us.

Latest updates from our school

Fire Service Visit

Many thanks to George from Derbyshire Fire Service for his excellent talk in school today. The children have learned all about the science behind combustion, how to prevent fires in their homes, how to make an escape plan and the consequences of hoax calls to the emergency services. All children in year 6 have also taken home a 'Home Fire Safety Survey' to fill in with parents to ensure their homes are fire safe (I have included a link below to these resources and a video from Derbyshire Fire and Rescue which will reinforce the messages from today's session).

This week in TB - W/C 16-05-22

What a phenominal down-pour we had this week - Resilience were out for it and we had a blast exploring the puddles and using pipes and guttering to move the water about...we made our own fountain with the water draining from the MUGA.

Most classes this week started proceedings with a game of Baby Bird - attract a partner (great dancing by the boys here), build a nest, hatch and feed three chicks whilst fending off marauding magpies.

We used the game to deepen our understanding of evolution and through it, we developed a sense of respect for what birds (and parents) have to go through in order to raise successful offspring!

Children have had a lot of choice in their undertakings this week, and as a result we have focused on Self Control and Respect for equipment.

Some have practiced sewing skills, adding the finishing touches to their floral wall hangings - these are looking awesome.

Others have honed fire skills, culminating in the toasting of marshmallows. 

The Jubilee Memorial is now at full hight, awaiting jam jars before the dome and sculpture can be added.

Additionally, we have had mini-beast exploration, leaf rubbing, crown making (parents: thanks for the craft resources), drama based around pollination, Roman Fort construction and clay leaf-printing (we've recalled the process of photosynthesis here too, giving our thanks to the leaves for the oxygen they provide!).

Changing Temperatures

Team Equality have been doing some powerful maths over the last couple of days. Working in groups of 2 or 3, they used clues to help them calculate the temperatures of ten different cities in two months. They then had to answer six intricate questions using their mathematical reasoning and problem solving skills.  It was great to see some fantastic collaboration and communication in class!

Reading with confidence

This morning, the children chose a section of their reading book to read in different ways. We practised reading aloud to ourselves and reading to a partner. The children did a great job of giving feedback on how other children could further develop their delivery too. Let's keep up the good work and remember to use appropriate intonation and expressions and maintain a strong pace.

Team Endeavour's English

Today in English, we kick started our new unit of 'A letter to my future self' by reading an example one!

The children enjoyed looking at the pictures, reading the letter and playing the games which were mentioned within it such as: Cat's Cradle and hand clapping games. 

Here they are, very excited, whilst exploring our new genre of writing! 

Over the coming week, the children will be writing their own letter to future versions of themselves!
