This week we were very fortunate to have a special guest come in to school. Scott from Multiverses spent his day showing our children the future of education and learning. In the morning children from year 3 and 4 had the opportunity to explore an underwater coral reef leading to fantastic descriptive writing. In the afternoon children from year 5 and 6 had the opportunity to explore art in a 3D space using Google's ‘Tilt Brush’ software. This technology has proved to be inspiring, educating and engaging within a school setting.

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!

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!

Class 5's 'Human Timeline'

In history today, we made sense of BC/AD and BCE/CE, chronology and where the Anglo-Saxons 'fit' in time.

Type a post explaining what you learned for a merit! For example, why do the Romans and the Anglo-Saxons both share the fourth century?

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 😊

Chick news!

Yipeeee exciting news today- One of Mavis' eggs has hatched. Welcome to the world little chick! As you can see it isn't a yellow chick, but yellow and brown. The breed is called a Cream Legbar hen. Lovely addition to our last week of school :-)

Smalley's Summer Show 2017

Well done children, what a super show.

Thank you for all of your hard work and effort.

 

 

'Eggciting' times ahead!

As you may have seen, we are expecting chicks in the last week of term! Mavis currently has a clutch of 7 eggs that she is incubating and doing a very good job with. Today she has been moved into a separate hutch so that she can incubate in peace and get ready for her chicks. 

Incubation and chick development takes 21 days which is amazing that a new life can be made in just 3 weeks. Today is day 10 so we have carefully checked the eggs development. This is called 'candling'. To candle an egg you need to shine a torch at the bottom of the egg in a very dark room. As you can see, by day 10 the egg will show lots of veins and blood vessels- this is called mapping. 

Mavis has done a good job so far and her chicks are developing. The eggs are half way there so keep your fingers crossed for the due date! 

If you have anything you'd like to know about the hens, or Mavis and her eggs just remember you can ask Miss Tulley or Mrs Reckless :-)
