Latest updates from our school
A huge thank you to all the people who donated items for our Macmillan coffee morning; thanks also to all the parents, family and members of our local community who supported the event by coming along and digging deep into their pockets!
What a fantastic morning we had! The hall was buzzing with activity and, as you can see from the total below, we made a whopping amount of money for this amazing charity. Click on the picture below for some more pics from today's event and for more information on how the money will be used by Macmillan click here.
A huge thank you also to the year 6 children from Team Endurance for running the stalls along side the members of staff who all made the day such a big success!
Well done to all of our Achievement Assembly winners this week. You have all been recognised by your teachers for your hard work and effort in English over the last two weeks. A special mention also to Freddie, who was recognised by the midday staff for his help and support at lunchtimes, and Jaimee for her brilliantly written story- for this you both won the Headteacher's Award.
After an introduction to the challenge, children split into groups and commenced construction.
Collaboration was high, and children used the full range of tools safely and with Precision.
Some incredible rafts are taking shape; thanks to parents for supporting children with appropriate kit.
We'll finish next week and let you know how they all got on.

Team Equality have been developing their ball skills throughout this term through a variety of games including basketball.
Today, the children took part in some matches in their owl teams and showed fantastic communication, teamwork and a positive attitude. As well as this, the children all took ownership for their learning too during different segments of the lesson. For example, if a team felt that they needed to work on their shooting tactics, they used the equipment that was made available to them to develop their own team-led practice activity to develop this skill. It was particularly nice to see sportsmanship too at the beginning and end of games as the children wished each other luck and celebrated everyone's successes.
Our lower school boys and girls took part in the Amber Valley Athletics Tournament this afternoon, competing in a variety of events including sprints, throws and jumps, demonstrating speed, agility, strength and endurance.
Everyone tried their best and represented the school brilliantly which made us all really proud.
