Latest updates from our School
As is the tradition, our school has been invited to take part again in this year’s Smalley Church Flower Festival, held in the village church.
The theme , this year, is a celebration of the last 100 years , with a wonderful array of floral tributes, portraying special occasions events and music since 1908. The festival begins tomorrow on the 18th, continuing through until the 26th and all visitors are welcome.
Here is our Smalley entry, Joseph and his Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat, which depicts our wonderful history of school musicals. The children each made a flower and they are all displayed on the coat and we plan on visiting the church next week to see their hard work.
Despite all the business of SATS this week, a group of our KS2 children made the trip to Curzon School in Quarndon, to take part in a Tag Rugby event, run by RS Coaching.
The event consisted of 4 other schools and ourselves, taking part in a round robin competition, playing 15 minutes in each game.
We won two of our games 8-1 and 3-2 respectively, and drew the other two games 4-4 and 3-3. The team worked hard together and looked a force to be reckoned with , as they charged forward from the roll off.
We finished in second place overall and did the school proud, as always. A big thank you to Mr Redgrave for his help and to our parents and supporters who came along.
In Class R we have been learning about lots of different minibeasts that we see in our gardens. Over the past few weeks we have been following the lives of our very own class caterpillars. They started as tiny caterpillars and grew and grew whilst munching away on their special food. After a couple of weeks we saw them change into chrysalides. We had to be really careful at this stage as the magical change was happening! About 10 days later, we discovered that our beautiful butterflies had emerged. Class R have amazed us with the amount they have learnt over the past few weeks about our caterpillars and butterflies. It has been so wonderful to see the curiosities develop and to hear that children have been telling their grown ups at home all about it!
We had a wonderful trip last week at Bluebell Dairy. Here are some photos of some of the things we did. We had a brilliant trip teacher called Kelly and she taught us lots of new facts about the animals at the farm. It was a super day and to finish off the day we enjoyed the play area and of course, tasted some delicious ice cream!
Over the last few weeks in Art, our Year 6 children have been producing some 3D models of volcanoes, in a medium of their choice. After a process of papier mache, paint and sealant, they were able to then prepare them to erupt this Friday afternoon , using a variety of methods and the results were brilliant.
