Latest updates from our school
Take a look at team Discovery's practice session this afternoon. It's hard to believe this is only their second session with Derbyshire Music Partnership. WARNING-Ear defenders advisable!
A lovely, crisp morn in the woods that we shared with a beautiful cock-pheasant - he was pecking away at the leftovers from yesterday's Mystery Trail!
We started with an H and S recap, before exploring the wood to find different things linked to words such as 'interesting' and 'crooked' - the children had to collaborate to agree on finds and be organised to display them appropriately.
We then split up, with some cooking, others playing team-games, a few reading stories and making hedge-hog shelters and a final bunch learning about some TB tools.
As it was so cold, we started with a couple of warming team building games that focused on communication, organisation and collaboration - it was wonderful seeing how the children developed their approaches as their experience of the games grew.
We then did the blindfold trail (thanks to parents for help here) which the children found 'gross' - in a good way!
Some then carried on with instruments, made scarecrows, honed fire skills or developed a play! Great skills all round in challenging conditions!
Our forthcoming KILBURN KILOMETRES event is now taking bookings, in preparation for March 17th, so why not dust off those trainers and begin training for it with your family- no excuses, there's an event for everyone.

We started with a version of hide and seek (which the children found frustrating due to having to work collaboratively when seeking!) and the blindfold trail which they set up and ran themselves - they loved this and really enjoyed trying to freak each other out with their grousome tales (thanks to parents for supporting children with prep for this).
After this, we had children making fires, scarecrows, instruments and a table-sports-game, with a final few writing a play and then performing it to the rest of the group.
There was a real sense of purpose and determination in the wood today, with all children focused and engaged in their own learning.
Quality session this week...with bundles of focus and collaboration.
Group 1 were focusing on the book 'The Bear Snores On', constructing a den using ropes, tarps and self-made tent-pegs.
Group two were continuing work on musical instruments, with a break-away group choosing to make a shelter.
Group 3 focused on the book 'The Lonely Scarecrow', and began learning the skills needed to make their own scarecrow.
Group 4 followed a nurture approach, exploring things around the woodland, discussing emotions and creating things to support mindfulness.
