Roman Soldier

On Wednesday 13th January the Year 3 children had an exciting day meeting a Roman soldier.  They were all given Roman names and found out about the armour and weapons that Roman soldiers used. They even had a go at marching in formation. It was a great experience for all the children and helped to give them a real insight into Roman soldier life.

Well done Elliot!

Great news for Elliot in year 5, who won a competition prior to the Christmas holidays through cubs.
2016 is the 70 year anniversary of the of the Mickleover 124 scouting group and they asked all of the beavers, cubs and scouts to design a badge to celebrate this. Elliot produced the overall winning design, which is now going on to be manufactured.  There are beavers, cubs and scouts at Silverhill who are part of the Mickleover 124 group, who will hopefully be wearing Elliot's design this year!

Mrs Crofts retires!

One the last day of term we wish a fond farewell to Mrs Crofts who, after 26 years of service, finally retires! Sheila has been a constant force in the school, supporting three headteachers and the Governing Board. She will be missed by many families, especially those children she has seen return as parents. We wish her lots of health and happiness for the future and hope she will pop in to visit us if she has any free time!
