Silverhill goes spotty for Children in Need

Thank you for supporting Children in Need. We have had a really super day with a special assembly in the morning. The “Wear something spotty” theme was very well supported and there were some imaginative costumes! Special thanks to Mrs Lowe, Mrs Caborn & Mrs Attwell for decorating the spotty cakes. The amount raised so far is in excess of £400. Well done everyone!

Book fair success

Thanks to everyone who supported the Book Fair, and thanks also to those who helped outwith the organisation and sales. Sales at the Book Fair totalled £880. This means that we are able to obtain books to the value of £468 for the school – a magnificent achievement.

Good to be Green

Well done to all our pupils who stayed 'green' last half term. All our green pupils were rewarded today with an exciting visitor who got them involved in some fantastic traditional Africa dancing. We hope they all had fun and that they continue to remember 'It's Good to be Green'!
