Ozzy the Octopus starts a Flash Dance

Lots of fun was had yesterday when our sports cluster mascot Ozzy the Octopus from Opengate arrived in school.

Inspired by Shonette Bason-Wood who is going to replicating the 'Perth Train' flash dance on YouTube Ozzy started dancing and everyone else soon joined in!

There were some brilliant dance moves as we are very lucky to have Miss Elizabeth with us who has recently graduated from a New York University after studying dance for three years.

We wish Shonette the best of luck in her latest venture from all her friends at Smalley!

A massive thank you to Miss Elizabeth for her skill and brilliant coaching and to Ozzy of course. What a brilliant way to end the half term!

Jiving in Class 5!

It was great to walk into the hall this afternoon and see our Year 5's dancing the jive together. They showed off some fabulous moves and I was glad to pick up some tips.

A massive thank you to Miss Elizabeth from Opengate for her wonderful coaching.

Opengate training at Smalley!

We were proud to host an Opengate Training session this morning for the coaches that come into school.

Our Year two and four classes were able to receive specialist coaching and it was lovely to have all the fabulous coaches from Opengate in school with us all at once.

Our children had two brilliant lessons and we are very grateful to Mr Ozenbrook and the coach Ant.

Draughts Club!

Alex W and I both share a love for the game of draughts! After a conversation a few weeks back we came up with the great idea of a draughts lunchtime club.

Today was our first one and around 30 children turned up! We had a great time and I am pleased to say that I am still undefeated!

Singing Summer School

Brilliant opportunity for our pupils from the music partnership. Please see poster below for more details.


 Singing Summer School

Singing al fresco - wow!

It was a real pleasure today to go outside at playtime as the children were singing beautifully ready to open the Summer Fayre this Saturday.

I could have sat and listened to them all day and it is no surprise that the sun has come out this afternoon!

If you get the opportunity please do not pass up the chance to hear the lovely singing this Saturday! They will open the Summer Fayre at 12:00 noon.

I think it may be a good idea to have singing outside every day Mrs Mason?

Beautiful children, it made my day. thank you.

Our Last Climb

 

We've had a fabulous few weeks climbing. I hope everyone has taken something from our time there.

Climbing Club

Climbing Poetry

 

Elyse climbs first, Heidi secures her on the wall,

Harness’s checked, she climbs so tall.

Mark shouts, “Where’s your sports car steam?”

Here we all are, working in a team.

Heidi climbs second, she climbs so high,

She tries so hard she can touch the sky.

Amelie makes sure she checks her rope,

She’s nice and warm in her purple coat.

Leonie pulls hard on the belay,

“I’m going to get to the top!” she might say.

Max keeps the helmet on his head,

When they reach the bottom they all look like they’re dead.

Matthew checks his harness is secure and tight,

It definitely is, to get out is such a fight.

James grabs the bright, colourful hand hold,

Nearly time for home before we get cold.

Today is over, we’ve enjoyed our lesson,

We can’t wait for next week’s session.
