Last week we welcomed special visitors into school. Members of our “Smalley Old Boys” and representatives from the Richardson Foundation came to school to enjoy lunch in Class 6. They then met children from Year 5 and 6 and enjoyed a presentation, by the children, of our Remembrance service, which was then aired on the BBC news the very next day.
It is always a privilege to watch the children and adults sing ‘Abide with me’ together in our school hall. Welcoming our wider community into school always gives our children a valuable experience and it is greatly appreciated by all of our visitors too.

Today, our children continued to make us so very proud. Our Remembrance Service, led by Year 6, and supported by Key Stage 2 children was just beautiful. The children were so very respectful as they reflected on the soldiers who have lost their lives fighting for the freedom that we have today.
Smalley's Remembrance Service is always a special event in our school year and this was captured by the BBC news team today, who came to film the pride that we have in our past and the hope we have for our future.
We will remember them.
Wow! What a fantastic turn out for our first ever Smalley school Pumpkin Parade. We enjoyed seeing the amazing pumpkin creations and drinking yummy hot chocolate after school. A wonderful event for everyone- thank you to the PTFA for organising! Here is a video for your enjoyment 😊🎃🎃🎃
Thank you for all of the empty 2 litre plastic bottles that have been sent into school so far, for our whole school Remembrance Memorial.
We'll be recycling your bottles in two ways:
1 - Creating a whole school memorial marking 100 years after the end of the First World War
2 - Class 1 will be using the parts that we cut off in a project later in the year.
If you have any more bottles to bring in, please do so. If you have any spare, please bring those in too - we want to create a beautifully fitting tribute in our playground.
Friday saw the last part of our two week Harvest Celebrations at Smalley School. We started with our visit to the chapel, then our Harvest assembly and finally our sharing of the Harvest gifts.
Thank you to everyone for their generosity.
Wishing you all a safe and happy Autumn time.
