School Council

We are in the process of setting up a new SMART School Council which will allow all pupils to have a voice in school about decisions which affect them. We would be grateful if you could click on the link and complete the survey. This will help us to tailor our School Council to our school needs as viewed by pupils, parents, staff and governors. Thank you for your time and support.

Friday, 10 November 2017


This morning Silverhill Primary paid their respects to the fallen during our Remembrance Service. Lead by Mrs Nash and our Year 6 pupils the school welcomed parents and families to join us at our service in the playground, next to our outdoor classroom and spectacular poppy waterfall. Year 6 read some examples of their letters from the trenches, sang songs from war and their fantastic trenches were on display. The choir lead the school to sing 'Keep the Homefires' and a minute of silence was perfectly respected by all.

Year 1 welcome Winnie the Witch

This week our Year 1 children enjoyed working with their special visitor 'Winnie the Witch' who came in to see if we could help her to make some Slime Soup for Wilbur the Cat! The children tried the soup - some of them thought that it tasted lovely- others were not so keen!

Fire and Light Enrichment

On Friday 3rd November the whole school took part in a wide range of activities to celebrate Diwali and also to consider the events of  the Gunpowder plot in 1605. Wearing the most colourful outfits we could find and making the most of our fantastic outdoor learning spaces, many classes visited the fire pit to read, listen to stories, dance around the fire or simply to watch and listen to the flames. Classes welcomed many visitors who share their Indian cooking or talked about their faith and their traditional dance and costume while other classes debated the events of 1605. This rich and varied Learning Adventure was then shared in a wonderful assembly on Monday morning.
