Well done to all the children who took part in our annual decorate an egg competition. As always, the ideas and creativity were fantastic and the standard was very high. A special congratulations to all our winners who received an easter egg each.
On the last day of term, FS2 went on a trip to Ash End House Children's Farm near Tamworth. We had a fantastic day meeting lots of different animals - we were able to hold tiny little chicks and collect our very own eggs to take home, as well as feeding oats to the goats (which was very funny!) and stroking the huge shire horses. We were lucky with the weather and were able to run off some energy in the playground (including the giant bouncy pillow!) before getting back on to the coach to come home. Our teachers were really proud of us as we were a credit to Silverhill!
On Tuesday 4th April Year 5 went on their trip to Cadbury's World! Surrounded by the delicious smell just in time for Easter, the children discovered the connection of chocolate to their current topic when they learned all about the Aztecs. They looked through the history of the development of chocolate and the chocolate making process. A superb learning experience and a great day out!
In the build up to the Easter holiday the pupils in year 2 were very busy. They welcomed their parents into class, so that they could look at all the splendid space vehicles that the children had created for their homework project.
They then greatly enjoyed themselves completing various measurement tasks, which included making cup cakes! Yum yum!
On Monday 3rd April, in three stages throughout the morning, the whole school walked to All Saints Churc in Mickleover village for an Easter church. Listening to the story of Easter from some fantastic reading by Archie, Raheem, Eloise, Reece, Abbey and Sriya, we also paid respects through prayer to other religions within our school.
