Autumn Walk

What a beautiful day for an Autumn walk! Class R got their wellies, boots and coats on ready to look for the signs of Autumn on our walk. We found some beautiful leaves, berries, fungi, conkers and acorns. We had to think carefully about what we should and shouldn't touch as we saw lots of prickly leaves, berries and fungi and we talked about why we shouldn't touch everything we see. 

For the very last part of our walk we enjoyed an exhilarating run all the way across the field! 

Take a look at us on our walk and the things that we saw and found!

Grubby Club Week 2

More fun this week in Grubby Club! We have been cleaning out the chickens and filling their water and food,  picking up litter, looking after the environment, making bug hotels, weeding the vegetable beds and planting red onions... and of course not forgetting, finding lots of wiggly worms! 

Just a reminder that there is no Grubby Club next week as it is parents evening. Grubby Club will carry on the week after. Thank you everyone for your enthusiasm and your help! 

Enjoy the photographs! See you in 2 weeks 😊🌳🌿

Superhero day 2017

Our annual superhero day for Gold September was another huge success this year.

The children looked amazing and we raised £396 by selling badges and wearing non uniform for this fabulous cause.

Well done to our super children!

Thank you BMWMAN

It was a real privilege to accept a huge cheque for Gold September today.

A parent at Smalley Helen Wright has been busy all year with her business and raised a whopping £1044.45 in exchange for free software upgrades for BMW cars.

This is such a generous act and the cheque was presented to myself, Mrs Evans and Miss Longdon as trustees of the charity.

Massive thanks to all at BMWMAN for such a kind gesture.

Thank you BMWMAN

Embark Federation - Forest schools training

All staff from Embark Federation received excellent training last night on Forest Schools/Outdoor Learning.

This was led by our very own Mr Goodburn at Kilburn Juniors and it was such an inspiring session that even the rain didn't dampen our spirits!

The staff took part in a number of well thought out activities that suit the outdoors rather than the classroom. What made the session even better was the enthusiasm of all of our staff and the creative thinking of how these can be adapted and used for different subjects and ages.

This is all part of our commitment to give our pupils a wide range of opportunities and a first class education.

Huge thank you to Mr Goodburn and all our staff for a memorable training session.

Enjoy the pictures below!

First Gold Book

Today was the first Gold Book Assembly of the year and it was EYFS and Key Stage 1's turn. This is a special assembly where the class teachers choose 6 children to celebrate something fantastic. 

This week all of Class R had a mention in the Gold Book for settling in well and being independent at lunch times- we are very proud of them all.

There were also 6 children chosen for their hard work with reading at home and their super self-portraits. They got to stand at the front of the hall and collect a sticker from Mrs Mason and Mrs Reckless whilst everyone clapped. 

Class R sat and listened very well to the assembly and we sensibly walked back to our classroom whilst the rest of the school sang us the Embark song. Well done Class R on another super week! :-)

Welcome back!

As you may have seen, the Smalley school hens have been  away over the summer. They have had a holiday at Miss Tulley's house so that they could have some refurbishments on their coop. They are now back at school and ready to see everyone on Monday 😊
