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.

Courage TB - The Pharaoh's Spirit Fish

After a vision of Poppy and a swoosh of silver, the children found a letter from Poppy in the wood along with a Silver Spirit Fish!

The letter set us two important challenges, one of which was to provide the deceased Spirit Fish with a proper burial, worthy of a pharaoh.

We split into groups to undertake the challenge, and the final ceremony was a wonderful and fitting celebration!

Year 6 Environmental Scientists

Our year 6 pupils have been investigating electrical circuits and different electrical components using our new Hot Wires kits.

Some children have been exploring the energy generated from a windmill, testing sail size and position with an electrical fan and using a multimeter to record the electricity generated. All very fascinating.

Next time they will be comparing solar panels and windmills to see which are most effective- fingers crossed for a windy, sunny day!

Year 3 Modelling and Programming

Our year 3 pupils enjoyed working in the spring sunshine this afternoon, building and programming Lego WeDo models to perform different tasks.

They enjoyed the challenge of following plans and solving construction problems before making their model come alive.

Fantastic Gymnastics

Yesterday these fantastic Year 3/4 gymnasts took part in a school sport partnership competition in Alfreton. They tackled the vault with style, showed their self control in the body management routine and performed their fantastic floor exercise routines. They worked really well as a team and showed great sportsmanship! Well done ladies and thank you to all parents who supported the children too! EJ

Discovery TB - Pomme De Terre

Thanks for the spuds. 

We started with a spud throwing challenge which tested the children's communication and organisation - there's some great throwers and catchers in Discovery! 

We then introduced the potato challenge and found a quiet spot in the wood to consider what we were going to do - the children found this peaceful time very relaxing. 

Then to work...and how creative they were! Check out the photos and ask your kiddy-wink to explain! 

Most YOU22 pins today were for Creative, Safety Conscious and Precise - did your child get any pins? 

Next week - the marriage of Mr and Mrs Potato, lead by our very own preacher, Blayze!

Courage TB - Responsibility

We started with a staged tidy-up of the wood...who would be able to find the missing items? The children were great seekers, and used their skills well at the end of the session when it came to squaring things away.

We had a fire in TBHQ and embedded the new safety rules and then had a look at the new YOU22 display - the children used the board well and by the end we had lots of pins in different attributes. 

After assembly, we had bug hunters, munchkin-weapon makers, tree-spirit sculptors and canopic pot makers, all rounded off with a lovely hot chocky!
