Latest updates from our school
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!
It's been another epic week in our school Achievement Assembly, with pupils and staff being recognised for their effort and hard work.
Pupils were awarded the Mathematic's Star of the Week award for their progress in maths, especially in arithmetic and mental maths strategies.
Tallulah and Ellie (a 3rd time recipient) were awarded the Headteacher's Award for helping look after the site by litter picking every day. Alicia and Lexi were presented with the Headteacher's Award for producing stunning, extra work at home. Miss Jennings received her YOU22 award for finishing 8th in the Ultimate Frisbee National Team Competition and Mr Walters received his YOU22 award for his vision and immense effort in coordinating our very first Kilburn Kilometres fun run.
Well done everyone, were are really proud of you.
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!
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
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!
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!
