Thank you to everyone who enjoyed this years Pumpkin Parade. Despite the rain, we still had a busy hall full of children, parents and carers looking at the wonderful creations and enjoying hot chocolate and cookies.
Well done to all children who entered the competition and a special mention for the 3 winning pumpkins. It was very tricky to choose!
Thank you to the PTFA for organising and running another fabulous event!
Thank you so much to everyone involved in our Harvest assembly today - what great TEAMWORK! Together, everyone gave a valued contribution which shared our special Harvest message of thanks, working together and thinking of others.
Thank you for all of the kind donations of spare mugs which will head towards The Padley Centre in the next few days; luckily our assembly was 'smashing' for many reasons and not because of broken mugs!
MONDAY - 299 mugs + one more from Mrs Mason = 300 mugs to donate!
We are thrilled to announce that 300 mugs will be heading towards The Padley Centre this week - that's a whole days worth of hot drink containers for the homeless people of Derby - thank you.
How wonderful to catch up with Theo and find out about his continuing Blue Peter badge collection. Here are the badges that were awarded for Theo's tennis playing and also for his cake baking to commemorate the Blue Peter tortoise retiring from the show. Thank you for sharing Theo - which one will be next? Toby told me that he is busy working towards his first Blue Peter badge too - can't wait to see it Toby!

Thank you to our wonderful PTFA for funding this experience for all of our children today.
Can't wait to see what else we learn in Space Week - enjoy everyone!
To infinity and beyond!
Class 3 had the fantastic opportunity to visit the National Stone Centre to support their 'Rocks' Topic. They had a brilliant time and learnt lots about the properties of rocks, and were fascinated to discover how different rocks are formed.
Panning for gems was great fun, although harder than it looks! The fossil trail was very interesting too, who would have thought there were so many fossils around to see?
The Class were then able to create their very own fossil! What a fantastic day.
