YEAR 4 REMEMBRANCE ASSEMBLY

We were so proud of all the children in Year 4 as they delivered an assembly on the theme of Remembrance to the whole school. Every child had a speaking role. They talked about why we have a national day of remembrance each year and explained why the poppy is an important symbol. All children had written poems on the theme of remembrance in their English lessons and some children read theirs out to the school.

A TRIP TO THE CINEMA!

We took part in the Into Film Film Festival by taking a trip to the Showcase Cinema in Derby to see the film 'Abominable'. The children's behaviour was excellent and they really enjoyed the film. The teachers were very pleased to hear whispers from some children as they recognised names such as Everest and Himalayas from the work we had done as part of our Indian Adventure topic! On the way home, they were also amazed to see how high the River Derwent had risen in Derby after the recent flooding. It was a memorable visit!

ASPIRATIONS WEEK

Mrs Rhodes invited her daughter Sophie, who is a GP associate, to come and talk to the children about working in the NHS. Sophie arrived with her friend Hannah and the children had a lovely afternoon finding out about their jobs in a medical centre. There was a lot of excitement as Hannah and Sophie allowed them to try out some of the equipment they used! I think we have some budding doctors in Year 4! Thank you very much to Sophie and Hannah.

NON UNIFORM DAY FOR THE CHOCOLATE TOMBOLA

Thank you so much for all of the chocolate you donated for the PTA Tombola. The children could hardly carry the bag down to the office as it was so heavy! It will help to raise a lot of money for school. Why not come and have a go on the tombola at the Heanor Xmas Lights switch-on on Monday 2nd December? You might be lucky!
