Class 3

Thursday, May 24th, 2012

We recently went for a trip to the very interesting Derby museum. We saw lots of amazing artefacts such as a Viking long ship which was made out of oak.

We found lots of information to take back to school to help us with our Derby topic .

This week as part of our Derby Fest topic, year 4 has been on a walk to Westfield. First of all we walked down Friar Gate past Derby gaol to the stone heads which marked the beheadings of prisoners. Then we looked at Joseph Pickford’s house and which  has been turned into a museum about his life. After that we walked under the old railway station to the scary Friary which was an old place of worship. Then we looked at the detailed Thomas Bass statue and we all had a go at sketching. We had a fantastic time.

Class 10, along with the rest of the year, have had quite an exciting term, apart from our revision ready for our SATs, which are in 2 school days! One of the most exciting things we have done this term is learning how to play the Steel Drums, thanks to Mr Richardson, we all worked together as a team and made our own song, it was great fun!

In the run up to our Olympic themed assembly we are going to have a very special visitor, Jenny Hinton, to come in and teach us a dance for our class assembly, this will take place during the SATs week, in the afternoon. Apart from all the hard work and revision coming up for SATs we are exited about all our upcoming events in school!

Class 2

Wednesday, May 2nd, 2012

This week has been an exciting week for 12 children in our school. 12 children (1 from each class) were chosen by their teacher to have lunch at the top table with Mr Darby and Mrs Fray. We were chosen for good behaviour and outstanding work. We were each given a place setting which had our names in fancy writing. We also had a posh, silver candle in the middle of the table and were given wine glasses to drink our juice! To finish our meal we had after eight mints, yummy! It was great fun to sit at the top table because we were able to have a joke with Mr Darby.
