Cinderella and Rockerfella


Congratulations to all our fabulous Year 6 pupils in their end of year leavers production of Cinderella and Rockerfella. 

Cinderella and Rockerfella - The Cast

Paraolympian Leon Taylor visits....

On Thursday 12th July paraolympian Leon Taylor came to Silverhill to share his Olympic experiences with the children and to show off his Olympic torch. Leon talked about his condition, cerebral palsy, which affects the left side of his body and showed children photographs from when he represented England at 7-a-side football in the 2008 Beijing games. The children asked him lots of questions and some of them even had a hold of the torch!

It's show time....

The Year 6 Leavers production is almost here and after a superb dress rehearsal for the whole school, the stage is set, the props are ready and costumes all all hanging! See the short video in the main blog from the dress rehearsal for a sneak preview! Tickets are still available so if you haven't got yours yet please contact the school office.

CBeebies in school....

An exciting day today as the CBeebies television crew came into school to film some of our Reception and Year 1 pupils for a new programme 'Get Well Soon'. The school was chosen due to our fabulous grounds so thank goodness it didn't rain!

Key Stage 2 Sports Day

A sea of Olympic colours warmed up in energetic style ready for the Key Stage 2 sports day. We weren't going to let the threat of a bit of rain stop us.... Until the lightening bolted, thunder rumbled and the heavens opened and flooded the playground! We'll keep our fingers crossed for the re-scheduled date 16th July and hope for better weather! 

Food Fayre

On 27th June the school hall was full again and smelt delicious with all the wonderful cakes, biscuits and other scrumptious delights for the Food Fayre. Thank you to all the teachers for their 'fruit based' cakes,  the children for their 'food from the school grounds' inspired cooking and the parents for supporting the children in their biscuit making. Everyone greatly enjoyed the tasting!

Key Stage 1 sports day

Despite the forcast of heavy rain, a very special Olympic Key Stage 1 was a great success. With Olympic themed events including gymnastics, javelin, running, throwing as well as the traditional egg and spoon, sack and obstacle races the children had a great time and, as ever, took part with enthusiam and good spirit. Thank you to all the parents who turned up to support and encourage the children. This year saw the red China team take 1st place! Special mention to our 'Performance of the Day' pupils....Charlie and Oliver (reception), Kian and Shannar (Year 1) and Tyra and Deborah (Year 2).
