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 :-)

Year 5's special Maya day

We had an amazing day on Monday when Partake theatre company visited to bring the Mayan civilisation to life! The children handled artefacts, sampled Mayan hot chocolate, created clay glyphs and played a Mayan ball game. Such fun! Hope you all enjoyed it Class 5! Post a comment about what you learned for a merit.

Kwik Cricket

Last week , several of our Y5/6 children took part in the area Kwik  cricket competition , held at Denby Cricket Club. We played in a mini league , losing the first game by 27 points but went on to win our second game 62-18 comfortably. The team played really together and were extremely supportive of each other throughout.Sadly, we didn't make it to the finals but the children were a fantastic credit to the school. Thank you to the parents who came along to watch in the sunshine.  IMG_1808
