Today Silverhill pupils enjoyed an assembly from the children's author E. R. Reilly when he shared his writing experiences and some of his novels; Harriet the Horrible, Tall Tales, The Children's Lottery, The Look Outs and many more. Children can try some of his writing ideas, listen to some of his stories and many other activities by visiting his website. Copies of his books can be ordered through school and Eamonn will be returning to school on Friday morning for a book signing.

Yr 3 Roman Day

Last Thursday (15th January) we had an exciting Roman day. We had a visit from a Roman Soldier. He told us that Romans have shoes with spikes on the bottom of the shoe so they can scrape the persons leg so the next man could kill him! Then he showed us some Roman armour like a sword, a spear, shield, helmet and a trident. I tried on a helmet. It felt very heavy. My favourite part was marching and being called Roman names and my name was Lato God of Wisdom.

It might be really cold out side but that hasn't stopped our enthusiastic Year 5 and 6 pupils taking part in their level 1 and 2 cycle training this week. The first group has passed with flying colours and the groups continue every afternoon until half term! Well done everyone - keep peddling!

Greek Day in Year 4

It was such a busy time in the run up to Christmas we nearly missed this one! Thank you to Kirthi for her bog write up!

On Monday 8th December the children in year 4 had a Greek Day. We came to school dressed in Ancient Greek style costume and did a variety of Greek activities. There was Greek dancing. We played Greek music and put Greek dance moves to it. Then there was Greek food tasting. We tried olives, feta cheese, humous and pitta bread. After the food we wrote down which one we liked best. Nearly everyone hated the olives! We also made a Greek pot and Tragedy and Comedy masks. Everyone really enjoyed the day and we learned lots of new things about Ancient Greece too.
