Samaritain's Purse

This year Silverhill is proud to again support the Samaritan's Purse 'Operation Christmas Child' appeal. Pupils have brought home information leaflets on how to fill a shoebox as a Christmas gift for a child in a third world country but if you still need a leaflet please see the school office. Previous years have seen us send over 50 boxes to Romania and Mozambique. This year, with your support, we would love to donate even more. To find out more visit Thank you for your support.

Year 5 and 6 visit Cadbury World

On Friday 9th November all our Year 5 and 6 pupils went on a trip to Cadbury World as part of their chocolate theme topic this term. The children explored the Aztec world of Mexico where chocolate originates from and how the name Cadbury began back in 1824. They watch the production line and heard how chocolate bars are designed, created and advertised. The children had a wonderful day out and may had sampled a little bit of Cadbury magic along the way!

Year 1 visit Pickford's House

On Thursday 8th November our Year 1 pupils visited Pickford House, Derby, where they learnt all about life before electricity. The children particularly enjoyed learning about the toys children would play with in Victorian times and how hard the servants had to work.
