Team Courage

Y3/4 Handball

Huge congratulations to our Y3/4 handball team. Due to illness we had a much smaller squad than usual, but despite this, our team played outstandingly well and showed incredible skills with passing and throwing for their ages and finished 4th out of a total of 12 teams! An incredible achievement on its own, but for many of these children, it was their first opportunity to represent our school in a sporting competition. Well done to you all.

If you practise, you'll get better!

The children in Team Courage have been learning their multiplication and division facts by playing Hit the Button and TT Rockstars in maths.  In our class we always say that if you practise, you'll get better.  So why not help your child to learn their multiplication and division facts by playing the games at home?  Simply click the links at the bottom of this page to visit the websites.  Have fun!

Cave painting in Team Courage using natural resources

Team Courage have really enjoyed mixing their own paint using charcoal, soil and raspberries.   Using a piece of sandpaper to replicate the wall of a cave, they then painted their own piece of cave art.  We're certainly pleased with the results and we hope that you are too.

Reading explorers in Y3

Children have been exploring  vocabulary during Guided Reading sessions over the last two weeks. They have eagerly spotted patterns linked to their phonics work and enthusiastically shared their learning with others in the group. This is really helping develop their spoken and written language in class. Keep up the good work! Guided reading

We will remember them.

Children from Team Courage have been writing acrostic poems along the theme of remembrance.  During today's remembrance assembly, Sophie and Laya read their offerings aloud.  Here are Sophie's and Laya's superb acrostic poem for you to read.

Poole’s Cavern Trip

Lower School enjoyed a very fascinating trip to Poole’s Cavern, Buxton. The children loved their guided tour of one of Derbyshire’s finest Caverns, steeped in history and intrigue. Parts of the Cavern pre-date the dinosaurs and with wonderful tales of William Poole and his mystery cat the children were captivated. A post-lunch climb to Solomon’s Tower saw lower school enjoy the sites of Buxton and surrounding area. The children were congratulated by the guides for their wonderful behaviour and super attitudes. Well done Lower School!
