A great first week back in Class 1

We’ve had a lovely (and busy!) first week in Class 1. Thank you children for all your hard work!


Keeping Fit at Home.



To try to provide a chance for students to stay active at home, Amber Valley School Sports Partnership are opening up access to our DTF Fitness resource FREE of charge to all students and schools.


This includes hundreds of activity cards, fitness challenges and work-out ideas to help keep our children active, engaged and occupied during their time away from the regular curriculum.


To access the resources simply click the link below:



Activity cards are labelled with a recommended age group starting with Fun Fitness (Rec, Y1, Y2), Fitness Friends (Y3, Y4) and Personal Best (Y5, Y6).

All the activities require basic or limited equipment and can be done in a small space within most households.





For more ideas on staying active at home and supporting your students with PE resources check out some of the links below:

Movement to music in Class R

Today Class R have been using their listening ears and changed the way they move to match the music they could hear. We expressed the feelings felt through the music by using ribbon wands. 

First of all we practised our ribbon and body movements and when we were ready we applied it whilst listening to Four Seasons by the composer Vivaldi. We also finished our session with responding to Bohemian Rhapsody by Queen. 

The children performed beautifully and listened so carefully to the change in tempo, volume and timbre in the pieces of music.

"Olympic Trail" taster morning

On Friday morning this week, several of our classes were able to sample a variety of Olympic sports, delivered by one of our sports club providers, Premier Sports.

To celebrate this year's Games, to be held this summer in Tokyo, the children got the chance to take part in Boccia, Fencing, Archery and Athletics and enjoy something different to our usual school sports. Definitely some potential athletes for the future!





Year 6 World Book Day!

Class 6 have had a fantastic day dressing up as their favourite book characters.


We were also lucky enough to be the first class to work with the fabulous West End star Alastair Crosswell. We had a fantastic time learning all about the West End production of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and great fun learning one of the Oompa Loompa dance routines!
