Seeing double!


This week, in our maths lessons, we have been doubling numbers and trying to gain rapid recall of our facts to double 20.  We have also learned how to double numbers that are bigger than twenty, by partitioning, doubling the tens and ones and then recombining.  Please use the video and the games to help to practise these skills:

Smalley reach Gregg Cup final




Having reached the semi finals, Team Smalley played last night against Mundy Juniors at the Heanor Town ground for a place in the Gregg Cup final. 

Late on a cold Friday night and wearing our new kit, the boys came and delivered their best game of football to date to win 2-1 and earn a place in the final next Friday evening. They missed an early lead when a thundering shot hit the crossbar and were then under pressure for a while, until we scored with a swirling lob over the keeper and a 1-0 lead. The team stayed in control until the last 2 mins when a last surge from Mundy brought the scores level. We remained composed and an amazing strike from 20 yards out in the last minute, saw us take the lead once more. 

After a few anxious minutes of injury time, the whistle blew and the boys jumped for joy, as did the Smalley crowd , who came to support. 

A fantastic achievement from all the team and thank you to them all for their resilience, team work and positivity throughout. Bring on the Final next week! 

French Fun!


Class 4 have revisited their French numbers and colours this half term and enjoyed a fun lesson this week of activities to support their learning and revision of numbers from last year. 

Working independently or in pairs, they completed puzzles whilst learning their un, deux, trois! 

Fantastique ! 

The Final Countdown!

Over the last few weeks, some of our KS2 children have taken part in a mini league Football event , ran by RS Coaching and our old friend, Mr Singh. 

The event has taken place each week at Kilburn Junior School and the children have played twice, in a round robin format, against each of the 5 other schools taking part, over a six week period. 

We have performed consistently well throughout, and this week was no exception. The highlight being, despite playing 3 games back to back for 20 mins each,  a 6-2 win in our last game over the already acclaimed champions Curzon.  The children finished in a commendable second place overall and on a high too! 

Thank you to each member of the team for their commitment and effort over the weeks. Their sportsmanship was, as always, exemplary and they should be very proud of their achievement.  A thank you to the parents and staff who have given their time to attend and support us throughout. 

Year 3/4 Athletics


Another busy week of sport was kicked off by a group of our Year 3/4 children attending the Cluster Athletics competition held again at Alfreton Leisure Centre on Tuesday evening. 

The children took part in both field and track events and did extremely well, in particular, in the running races winning all bar one of their races. 

The final result showed that we finished fourth overall and did the school and themselves proud!  The children had a wonderful time taking part and encouraged each other throughout.

Thank you to all the parents who attended and to Mrs Evans for her support.
