ECO worm hunting

The Eco committee have been very busy this past week searching for worms in the school grounds and fields. They found around six different types and a worm specialist came in to help them.
They have also planned, designed and this week will be making a habitat hotel. They have also done lots of other exciting things in the past including helping with our school allotments and tidying up the school grounds.

Do something funny for money update!

On Friday the 13th of March Silverhill Primary was 'Funny for Money'. Everyone made a fantastic effort to look funny from clowns and 118 men to superheroes and barbie girls - and that was just the teachers! Mrs Parr lead a super assembly where we learned about the children in Africa that we were raising money for. Mrs Parr was joined by Mrs White, Mrs Turner and Mrs Mitchell to do a spelling test and our year 6 pupils announced the results of their fund raising competitions. It was great fun, we had a lot of laughs and even did some bottom racing!!! The total raised from the day was £295 - well done everyone! by Lucy, Web Club

Year 3 trip to Snibston

On Tuesday 10th 2009 Year 3 went to Snibston Discovery Park in Leicestershire. They left at 9:00am and left the coach in 2 groups, doing different activities at different times. Group 1 had a tour in a coal mine first then went to a gift shop to spend some money. Towards the end of the day, they went to an “explosive room” where they pressed lots of buttons and made loud noises. They finally arrived at school at around 2:00 am. They all enjoyed themselves very much. By Web Club

Year 2 Trip to the Gurdwara

On Wednesday 4th March Year 2 went to the Gurdwara Sikh temple. The children were impeccably behaved as they sat and listened to a talk on the temple and heard all about the Sikh religion. The children visited the prayer room where they were all given a sweet gift before they went downstairs to the kitchen to taste a range of traditional food. The trip back to school was good fun as they ate their sweets on the top of the double decker bus.

Fair Trade Day

On Tuesday 3rd of March our school went 'Bananas for Fairtrade'. Our giant inflatable banana travelled around the classrooms all day and brought with it a fair-trade banana for every pupil.
Fairtrade is to help farmers in third world countries get fair prices for their crops. Fairtrade doesn’t just focus on food. You can get Fairtrade clothes, footballs, cotton wool & other things that farmers in third world countries can produce.
Later on at 3:00 pm we held a Fairtrade café. We sold tea, coffee, juice and cereal bars. All of them were Fairtrade and were sold for 20p.
