P.S. We're pleased to report that we now have 12 little easter chicks and they are all doing well.

Gold Book for Team 2!

Mrs Rhodes and I are proud of all of the children's achievements this term and we wanted to thank them all in a special way in Gold Book, so we dedicated a special poem to them.

Would like to say to you

An enormous thank you

For all the hard work that you do.


Team Two have been busy

Each and every day

Filled with fun and laughter

And challenges all the way.


You all make us very proud

with the efforts that you show

A sensible walk to church

And felt puppets that you did sew.

Gentle with the precious chicks

Looking after your friends at play.

Let's pray for lots of sun!

Keep up the good work children!

Our canvas art in the style of Mondrian

As you can see from this video, the children produced some wonderful art work.  Thank you so much Team 2 - we know you are all so proud of your work.  Thank you to your families for coming to view the gallery and purchasing your masterpieces.




Phase 5 Week beginning 26.3.12

This week has been an assessment week and all of the children have worked so hard - thank you.  The children have looked at the tricky words in phase 5 and thought of ways that they can remember the 'tricky' part.  The children have worked so hard on making sure that they can read and spell them.

oh     their     people     Mr     Mrs     looked     called     asked     would     should     could

Try these over the Easter holidays - have fun!



Look out for the Derby Evening Telegraph today!

Just a little message to say that the photograph of Class 2 on 'World Down Syndrome Day' should be in the newspaper today (31.3.12) - we're really looking forward to seeing it.


Year 6 church visit

It was lovely to accompany Year 6 to Church earlier in the week. All of Key Stage 2 took part in the 'Easter Experience' session at the church which involved lots of creative activities whilst looking at the Easter story. 

Many thanks to all the ladies at the Church for giving up their time and for such super activities. The children really enjoyed themselves and it was lovely to hear their positive comments back at school. 

Our children were so well behaved and a credit to the school - well done!


Art Exhibition

Thanks to all who attended the Art exhibition this afternoon. There was a lovely atmosphere in the hall and it was great to hear such kind comments about the childrens work. Thank you to the PTFA for organising and to Mrs. Shaw and team for displaying the work. Of course thank you also to the staff for their ideas and art lesson and most important of all thank you children for all your beautiful work!

Enjoy the video!


Thank you PTFA

A very special thank you to the PTFA for their generous donation.  The Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1 decided to purchase guided reading materials and reading books with their money.  The new books have recently arrived in school and the children have loved using their new resources.

We appreciate all of the time and efforts that you give when fundraising for our school and wish you lots of luck for future eventsl.  Thank you again.
