Class 11

Wednesday, March 21st, 2012

What a busy term we have had! Nearly every day had something special for someone; year four had a China day and learnt some fantastic dancing and year five had a Ghana day where they learnt to play the drums. But the whole school enjoyed the story-telling workshop. Each year had a different story told to them, depending on their topic, and afterwards was given the chance to act out some of the characters roles with a prop (e.g. a wig). Also, today, eight children from year six, who are talented in the netball department, have gone to Chellaston School to play against St John Fisher and Chellaston. We know they’ll win but good luck!

In addition, our school is proud to say that we support the charity: Mary’s Meals. If one of our pupils eats a school dinner, a fraction of the money that they paid for it goes to Mary’s meals. This amazing charity helps all around the world in country’s in poverty, and provides a meal for young children who aren’t as fortunate as we are. So for £2.00 not only would you feed your child; you help feed another hungry child somewhere else in the world

What a fun week we have had!


Starting this week in school, we began our book topic. We are reading ‘The Tunnel’ by Andrew Browne. It is about a brother and sister who’s relationship is put to the test when the go through a tunnel! We won’t say any more as we strongly recommend you read this book.


On Tuesday the school were treated to a story telling day, where each year group had the chance to share a story from the culture of the topic they are learning about. As we are learning about Ghana, our story was about an African village that had become overrun with Baboons! It was such good fun acting it out and finding out about their culture.


On Thursday, Joseph Wright a famous artist, who was from Derby, came to visit us in school to share his journey of how he became a famous artist. He was not the real Joseph Wright but it was fun listening to him.


Next week is year 5’s Ghana Day so we are really looking forward to that!
