Global enrichment

Kestrels were lucky to have a very special visitor on Friday 13th July, which was Sofia's mum.  She taught us all about Russia and was extremely kind bringing in Russian food and drink for us to taste.  We had great fun doing a quiz and making a traditional headdress.  Thank you very much Olga for your time.

Picnic in the Park

Year 2 prepared a yummy picnic that they then took to Vicarage Road park.  They had great fun playing parachute games and on the play area.  Afterwards they enjoyed their picnic with all their friends and Bradley Bear too.

Track and Field finals

What a fantastic performance our squad of 12 put on at Primary Track and Field on Thursday 12th July. We competed in track sprints, javelin, shot putt, long jump and triple jump. There are too many amazing individual performances to mention bit the entire squad came home with at least one individual podium place in their heats which showed what a strong overall team we had this year. Huge thanks to Mr Turner and StrengthLab UK for preparing us for the competition. We were delighted with the final results; Bronze for girls team and Bronze for boys team! well done everyone!      

Music in Year 5

We want to say a massive thank you to Mrs Marler for visiting the Barn Owls’ classroom to deliver a fabulous and energetic music workshop, focused on reading music and exploring a wide range of instruments. Mrs Marler’s musical expertise meant that the children were able to compose their own Egyptian style pieces, building in what they had learnt about tempo and pitch. We would like to thank the talented Mrs Marler for her time and enthusiasm. A fabulous afternoon, enjoyed by Mrs McBride and all of the Barn Owls!

Year 4 visit derby Museum

On Wednesday 11th July, Year 4 went to Derby Museum for the day to take part in a habitats workshop linked to our Science topic. We had lots of fun exploring different types of invertebrates within the museum and even made our own craft dragonflies. 
After lunch we also had time to look around the museum. We recognized a lot of things from our Year 3 topics also, from the Stone Age to Vikings. 

British Heart Foundation

Thank you so much to everyone who has dug deep at various stages throughout this school year to help us support our chosen charity - The British Heart Foundation. We are so proud to have smashed or fund raising target for this year! In a special assembly we welcomed Derek to school to hand over a whopping £2525! Thank you and well done Silverhiil!
