Derby County Community Trust U11s tornament

Well done to our Year 5 and 6 football team who took part in the DCCT Under 11's competition at the Powerleague Soccerdome  on Thursday 18th January. We started really well with 2 wins against Derby High school and Redwood. We then faced Rolliston and Ashbourne and unfortunately lost both games. This meant we came 3rd in our group and did not go through to the quarter final stage. This was the first time that the boys had played together and they were absolutely superb. Mr Turner and Mrs Brundish were incredibly proud of every one of them . Special mentions go to Karum for a superb Captains performance and Harrison Pollard, who was chosen by Mr T and Mrs B as player of the tournament for his key role in each game.

PDSA visit

 Many thanks to the staff from the Derby PDSA for visiting all our pupils to talk to them about the importance of looking after their pets.

British Heart Foundation

As many of you know, our named charity this year is the British Heart Foundation, as several families in school have been helped through difficult times over the last few years by this very worthwhile charity. The collections after the Christmas performances as well as fundraising done during the Christmas fair have added up to an astounding £1,242!
Thank you so much for your generosity - this money will make a real difference. We hope that we can add to this total throughout the year so we will let you know about our next fundraiser very soon!

Merry Christmas...

At the end of another year we have finished with many lovely Christmas events that we hoped you shared with family and friends. Our last day of term has started with a whole school rendition of The Twelve Days of Christmas and finished with a very calm and reflective Christingle Service from our Year 2 pupils. May we wish you all a restful break, a Happy Christmas and prosperous New Year. We look forward to seeing you in 2018.

12 Days of Christmas and more...

If you're sat with a new phone or tablet over the festive period why not take a few moments to visit our Twitter feed or You Tube account where you see see lots more of what happens here at Silverhill in video form. In the exciting build up to Christmas the children have all been involved in lots of sports, singing and performing, snippets of which can be seen on these social media channels.
