Our Harvest Festival 2018

Friday saw the last part of our two week Harvest Celebrations at Smalley School.  We started with our visit to the chapel, then our Harvest assembly and finally our sharing of the Harvest gifts.

Thank you to everyone for their generosity.

Wishing you all a safe and happy Autumn time.

Gold September's Grand Total!


We're very proud to announce that our

school community raised an amazing


for the Gold September charity.


Thank you again for your kindness.


I do love Smalley School;  I love it when I'm surprised by children and adults in our school!  I love it when there's a buzz in the air.

At lunch time today, I looked through Class 5's classroom door and the room was in total darkness.......I was intrigued....what was happening?  As I opened the door to peer inside - this is what I saw......


Mr Redmond reading by lamp light, children listening so carefully to the story.  I later found out that these were spooky stories and the dark room was setting the scene.  How wonderful... thank you for the excitement Mr Redmond and Class 5 and thank you for inviting me to come and share a story another week....keeeeeep reading.

After the story time, children were invited to read their own books.......here they are enjoying them:


Boogie Beats at Smalley Hall

A beautiful Autumn walk in the sunshine, collecting leaves, conkers and twigs all the way to

Smalley Hall and then a great Boogie Beats session with Becky and the residents.

Thank you children.  

Beautiful singing, super listening, great movement and terrific behaviour - what a pleasure to take you out of school.

 Thank you for making us proud.

Happy National Poetry Day 2018!

Can you remember why the girls received the Eddy Parry Cup of Courage

in our Gold Book assembly today?

Class 1 went hunting in the sunshine to find real and nonsense words hidden around the playground. Great team work everyone!
