Latest updates from our School

Sporting friends!



Despite the weather this week, we were able to get together with our friends from Kilburn Juniors for some friendly fixtures and fight off the cold. 

On Monday, we went to Kilburn for a Basketball meet, prior to the Borough finals in January and the children had a great time. On Wednesday, we returned the favour and held a Dodgeball event here at Smalley ran by  Mr Wildig, and the children were in great spirits.

Thank you to all concerned, including Mr Whiteman and Mr Wildig and of course to the children, who had a ball! 

Basketball practice with our Embark friends at Kilburn!

It was a privilege to watch children from both Embark schools practice their Basketball skills earlier in the week.

Thank you Mr Whiteman and Mrs Shaw for making this happen and to all parents for helping with transport.

Liam conquers Mount Snowdon for Gold September

It was a real pleasure to lead Gold Book assembly at the beginning of the month as we had a special presentation to make. 

Liam in Class 5 had managed to walk up Mount Snowdon, the highest in Wales, to raise money for Gold September charity which is very close to all our hearts at Smalley. 

He raised a massive £301 and presented the cheque to trustees of the charity Mrs Longdon, Mrs Evans and myself.

It was lovely to welcome Liam's family to the assembly on this special occasion. I have since handed the cheque over and everyone at Gold September are very appreciative of such a kind gesture. 




Final Christmas Cake Club!

Wow! What a busy few weeks we've had! Today was the final session of Christmas Cake Club and we are very proud of the children's effort and enthusiasm. We have produced 20 fantastic Christmas cakes, all unique and special :-). We hope that you enjoy cutting your cake and enjoying it over the Christmas time. Huge well done children!!! And a big thank you to the grown ups at home for providing the long list of equipment and ingredients. It is much appreciated by the children and staff, helping us to provide this wonderful experience for the children.

Team work reading and spelling!



In Class R, 1 and 2 we are all working together to learn how to read and spell all of the tricky words from our phonic and English lessons.  These are those words that don't follow the normal segmenting and blending way of reading.  We help the children to recognise these by sight.

In Class R, the children are working hard on the Phase 2 words.

In Class 1, the children are working hard on the 3 & 4 words.

In Class 2, the children are working hard on the Phase 5 and the Year 2 exception words.

Please help your child to read and spell these words.

Many thanks

Money, money, money!


This week in our Maths lessons, we have been working hard on counting the value of a different amount of coins.

We have been looking at amounts up to 20p, 50p and £1.00 and £2.00.  We have been counting in 10 pences, 2 pences and 5 pences.


Here is a link to the slides we have been using to help to practise these skills:

Good luck and happy counting!
