The Stone Age – Y3 & 4

As part of their history topic, learning about ‘The Stone Age’, all the children in Year 3 and 4 have worked really hard at home to produce their own artefact or project. They were all amazing and very original. Here are just a few of them. They are finishing their topic by performing a great show all about the stone age called ‘Rock Bottom’. Watch this space for photos coming soon!

Red Nose Day 2019

For Red Nose day 2019, the School Council organised a brilliant talent show to entertain us all. There was a range of interesting acts, including: magic, gymnastics, singing, dancing and a surprise performance from the staff of ‘Baby Shark’. In the end we raised just over £400 for this very worthy cause, and felt like we had done our little bit to help others. Thanks everyone.

Let battle commence!

The children in Key Stage 1 have really enjoyed learning about Castles. As well as learning lots of interesting facts about castles, they have been busy planning, training and making amour ready for battle.  In their English lessons they have written adverts for the ‘perfect knight’, instructions on how to make strong shields and a diary extract about being a knight on the battlefield.

A great topic everyone –you know so much- well done.

Emergency! People who help us

Children in Reception have been learning all about people who help us. They recently had a visit from Derbyshire Police and learned how the police help to keep us all safe. They tried on the clothes and even sat in the police van!

The Fairy-tale Ball 2019

Children in Reception and key Stage 1 have been reading and learning all about traditional tales. At the end of the topic, they held an amazing Fairy-tale Ball. Everyone came dressed as a character from their favourite tale (even the staff) and took part in lots of fun activities, including making a mask for the ball and fairy-tale maths!  Well done everyone.

The Great WHPS bake off!

As part of their topic work this term, all the children in Year 3 and 4 took part in an enterprise project. They began by working in a team to pitch their idea for the ‘bake off’ to Mrs Palmer-Coole (AKA Alan Sugar) and were then give the money to make their chosen products.

They spent a whole day baking and the results were truly amazing. On the afternoon of 7th February, they invited Parents and Carers to afternoon tea in the hall. They decorated the tables and served the tea and cakes. It was a brilliant project and at the end they made a healthy profit too. Well done everyone. Good luck with the next enterprise project!

A Royal Mystery!

All the children in Key stage 1 helped to make a giant chocolate cake for their Royal party. They are studying traditional tales and fairy tales in English and are reading a fantastic story called, “Small Knight and George and the Royal Chocolate Cake.” Now the cake has gone missing and the mystery must be solved… Good luck everyone!

Table Tennis Champions 2018

Our new U11 table tennis team played brilliantly at Springwell School, to win the competition. In a closely fought championship, they eventually won by one point. Well done team! They are now through to the next round and we all wish them good luck.

Children in Need 2018

Our assembly theme for this term is ‘compassion’. As we are always looking for ways to help others and care for those less fortunate, supporting Children in Need was a perfect opportunity. This year, the School Council organised a great day of fun for us. We all came dressed in yellow and in the afternoon the staff took part in a game show to entertain everyone. At the end of a fun day, we had raised £473.25, which we have split between Young Minds and Children in Need. Thank you everyone for your support.
