Latest updates from our School
This week the children have been working hard at reading and writing captions.
We have been segmenting and blending to help us with some of the more difficult words.
Here are a few examples of what we have been reading-
pat a dog
a cat in a hat
a pin on a map
a kid in a cap
a nap in a cot
Well done Phase 2 you are working really hard!
This week in our Mathematics lessons we have been examining 3D shapes. We've had great fun stacking the shapes into super tall towers as well as finding out which ones roll and which ones do not.
We have been using some great online games too. Here are the links:
We have been using the important language and recognising shapes just from their description.
We have been using
vertex vertices faces edges curved straight
circular square triangular rectangular
To earn a merit I wonder if you can create a riddle to see if we can guess what the shape is.
Here is an example:
I have 3 faces.
One of my faces is curved and the other two are circular.
I have two curved edges and I can be stacked.
What am I?

Class 5 excelled themselves with their homework this week! Their solar system research, presentations, artwork, models and baking were all amazing and the effort invested was tremendous! Really well done everyone! I so enjoyed our time sharing and presenting your creations and I am a very proud teacher! I hope you're all proud of yourselves too! Super, super work! Thank you 😊

On Tuesday of this week, a team of our Class 4 children took part in an Amber Valley Short tennis tournament at Heanor Leisure Centre. Each child played small games against several other schools and, for their first attempt, played exceptionally well . They all proudly won games, watched by their supportive parents, and thoroughly enjoyed the event. The overall winners were Codnor and William Gilbert schools jointly. A big thank you also to Miss Tulley and Mrs Hird for accompanying the children initially and hopefully, we can look forward to more Tennis in the Summmer term.
How wonderful to welcome our Mummies and special ladies to our afternoon tea today.
We wanted to say a special thank you for all that you do, each and every day.
Mummies and other special ladies in our lives, including Grannies and Aunties, were treated to some lovely singing, presentation of special work, a poem, a gift of flowers and piano music. Our special guests also enjoyed freshly baked scones, baked with our own Smalley eggs (thank you Mrs Mason), shortbread with strawberries (thank you Mrs Straw), freshly baked cakes (thank you Mrs Pace) and of course plenty of hugs and time to chat. The children enjoyed their freshly baked biscuits made by our kitchen staff - thank you.
Thank you so much everyone for coming - it was really super to see you all. If you were unable to make it, we hope you enjoyed your special gifts.
Happy Mother's Day xx
