Year 3 Fun2Run – Champions…again!

We had a fantastic afternoon at Holmebrook Valley Park for the Year 3 ‘Fun2Run’ competition. Five boys and five girls from Year 3 took part in the big race! All the children were amazing, with some stand-out performances from individual runners. In the end, both teams ran so well that they won the entire competition overall, and brought back another huge winners’ cup to add to our ever growing collection. Brilliant!

Jorvik- here we come!

On Wednesday 11th April, all the children in Year 3 and 4 pupils travelled to York to visit the Viking exhibition at Jorvik. They all had an absolutely brilliant day learning about the Vikings and their influence on Britain, and trying out their archaeology skills too. It really did inspire everyone’s interest in this term’s topic.

River Models –Year 5/6

As part of their topic, ‘What has a mouth but cannot speak?’, the children have worked really hard, to create their own unique river valleys, showing all the parts of a river system. They have learnt all about the features and their names.


Once again, the Lower Juniors entertained us brilliantly with their end of term production, Ye-Ha! They sang with gusto and performed their parts and lines clearly and confidently. Every single child took part and we all thoroughly enjoyed the show. Well done to all!

Djembe workshops

During the spring term all children in Year 5 and 6 will have the opportunity to learn to play the Djembe drum with Mrs Richards, a specialist music teacher.

The children are enjoying the workshops so far and the teachers are trying really hard to get the beat too!

Dance Festival 2018

On 15th March , our infant and junior dance clubs took part in the annual Chesterfield Schools’ Dance Festival.

Our two dances were highly acclaimed and were chosen to open and close the festival. Well done everyone, you did us proud.

KS2 – Sportshall Athletics fun!

Miss Young accompanied 12 Year 3 and 4 children to the Sportshall Athletics event at Queens Park. The children had been training hard after school, for 6 weeks, in preparation for the event and their commitment and determination paid off as they all performed brilliantly! They even managed to win some of their events! Well done to everyone, you represented our school brilliantly.

EYFS/KS1 – Fairy Tale Ball

To celebrate the end of our topic work the EYFS and KS1 children had a spectacular Fairy Tale Ball. All the infants came to school dressed as their favourite fairy tale character and took part in lots of fun activities throughout the day. All the infant classes linked up together to share their favourite stories with their peers. A fun fairy tale day enjoyed by all!
