Reception – Outdoor Learning Week

During our ‘Outdoor Learning Week’ the Reception children took part in lots of large scale art projects and practical challenges around the school grounds. Look at the children developing their observational art skills on the school field!

Arts Week – EYFS

During Arts Week, the EYFS children learnt about English Folklore Tales. We used the story of Tom Thumb and Robin Hood as inspiration for our creative activities throughout the week. The children took part in ‘Maypole Dancing’ workshops and a musical ‘Spoons’ session. The children had lots of fun and developed a range of new skills. They also made a small Tom Thumb puppet and a shoebox house / garden for him to live in! Well done to all the EYFS children for all their hard work and creativity throughout the week.

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.

Ye-Ha!

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.
