We Will Remember

What a pleasure and an honour to welcome both Eric and Kevin into our assembly this morning.  These gentlemen were representing The Royal British Legion, Belper.  We invited them into school so that we could present the £87.15 that we collected during our Harvest collection back in October.

  The gentlemen told us that the Poppy appeal continues all year and that they were very grateful for our contribution and the money would go towards continuing to provide the wonderful service to soldier's families who have fought and are still fighting in the wars.

The gentlemen spoke to the children about the work of The British Legion and they also shared their experiences of being in the war.  Eric was 16 when he joined the Royal Air Force and served our country - he travelled to many places and said his time in service had helped him to stay young!  He was also one of the soldiers who arrived at the Normandy beaches during the Second World War in 1944.  Kevin participated in the Cold War and both his father and grandfather were soldiers.  It was so very interesting to hear their stories.

Three of our year 6 children read 'In Flanders Fields' and our children shared some the war time songs that they sang at our Remembrance service; it touched the hearts of both Kevin & Eric (who joined in too).

Class 4 shape up!

Image
Class 4 enjoyed a practical Numeracy lesson this morning , discussing all the various 3D shapes and their properties. After a brief introduction, they were split into smaller groups and given a variety of tasks and games which they all enjoyed tremendously. To conclude the lesson ,each group delivered their findings to the rest of the class. A great way of teaching the children, whilst having fun!

Letters & Sounds Phase 6

In phase 6 with Mrs Reckless & Mrs Boole, we have been looking at the different spelling strategies we can use when we come across a tricky word. These include mnemonics and counting the number of syllables in the word. Please try out this website to practise some of the skills: Image

Fun at the Zoo with Class 2!

What a lovely day we had at the zoo last Tuesday. Our children loved seeing all the different animals and asked some super questions. The weather was so kind to us, clear blue skies all day. The company was perfect and children you were a delight to take out. Enjoy the photos!
