What fun! Thank you everyone!
A lovely evening to be outside!
Well done children, what a super show.
Thank you for all of your hard work and effort.
It was a privilege to attend tonight's Tag Rugby competition and watch the skill, determination and teamwork of our year 5 and 6 pupils. They played really well, scored some wonderful team tries and came third in their group.
A huge thank you to Mrs Shaw as always for organising the team and to our parents and grandparents who braved the cold to support the team!
Well done to all, I hope Wales show as much skill this Saturday!
Finishing second overall in our group , we went on to play in a nail biting game, , which went to extra time and penalties, the boys valiantly gave their all but lost out on a golden goal shoot out.
Finishing 7th overall out of 12 teams, the boys linked some great play together, and as always showed excellent sportsmanship throughout.
A big thank you to our sports coach Mr Wildig , for pre - tournament training and his constant support, and to Mr Strode for his support on the day.
Apologies for the delay in this post, as we wanted to show everyone our new football strip , supplied to us by Mr Riggott. Think you will agree , the boys look impressed.
After our early morning yoga sessions the Year 6 children enjoyed a lovely breakfast each day.
Toast tastes better at school apparently!
For our final day this morning the children enjoyed bacon baps which went down a treat!
A huge thank you to Mrs Drury, Mrs Boole, Mrs Shelton, Mrs Annabel and all other staff who helped this week. It was very much appreciated and the food was lovely.
Thank you also to our staff who swapped and covered gate duties and gave our children such support this week. It was a real team effort and I'm so proud.
Enjoy the pictures!
SATs at Smalley means the return of yoga again for our children. Every year for the last five years our children have took part in a four week programme led by Naomi Smith from YogaBeamz. A huge thank you to Naomi as always for her expertise and hard work.
During SATs week Mrs Shaw and Miss Hill led the children with great skill and ensured the children got their day off to the best possible start! A huge thank you to them both.
The children worked through a series of yoga postures, breathing techniques and positive affirmations which helped them to remain calm in class.
Well done to the children for taking it so seriously and learning the techniques well.
All together......."I am fearless, I am confident, I am special, I am calm and relaxed!"
Team Smalley, this Thursday, attended the Amber Valley Large Schools Cross Country event at a new venue, Alfreton Park .
We had four teams of Y3/4 girls, Y3/4 boys, Y5/6 girls and Y5/6 boys, all of which gave 100% commitment throughout. The course was quite challenging and difficult underfoot, due to the recent weather but all our children ran with a smile on their face and enjoyed their individual races. We ran against teams from 13 other schools so there were at least 60 competitors in each race to run against and almost everyone completed the course with some excellent individual performances from William T (4th), Heidi T (6th), both in Yr 6, and Mason C (7th) from Yr 3.
Well done to all our children who did us proud as always and showed great sportsmanship. A big thank you to our parents who came to support us and to Mrs Shaw, Mrs Rawlings and Mrs Boole for their help.
Congratulations to Mundy Juniors who ran out overall winners.
