Book Fair

We have had another hugely successful Book Fair over the last week, raising a HUGE £1288. This will provide the school with £772 pounds to spend on new books for the free choice sections and libraries. A massive thank you to everyone that made a purchase - it really makes the difference to our school. A special well done also to Ayla, Maisie and Emeila for winning our 'Write a Review' Book Fair competition, winning themselves vouchers to spend at the Fair!

Scout Award

Congratulations to Elliot who received his silver chief scout award presented to him by the Derby district commissioner.

Alternative ball sports festival

A huge well done to the Year 4 children who went along to Willows on Tuesday  28th March to take part in the Alternative Ball sports festival. They had a try at dodgeball, American football and Water polo (without the water thankfully!). Mrs Brundish deliberately chose children who had not had chance to take part in any sporting activities this year to give them a chance to try something new. She was thrilled with the effort and Silverhill SPIRIT that all the children demonstrated and is hoping some of them might be keen to join of the sports clubs available to them at school. 

Year 2 visit space!

Year 2 had a super day at the National Space Centre learning about the past, present and future.  There were plenty of fun interactive activities and amazing facts to inspire our writing.

Book fair

 Come along every night this week after school, open until 6pm on Thursday 23rd and Monday 27th during parent consultation evenings, to spend your World Book Day vouchers and buy a wonderful new book. All money spent allows the school to receive new books for the school libraries and classrooms.

Rammie visit!

We love visitors into school - especially when they cause chaos in assembly - and on Tuesday 21st March Rammie did just that! He told us all about how he stays active and reminded the children how important it is for them to do the same! Check the children's book bags parent's as a special teat, Rammie gave us some special offer tickets to the next DCFC football match.

Tag Rugby Megafest!

On Thursday 16th March, ten Year 6 children attended the Tag Rugby festival which took place at Derby Rugby Club, where we showed fabulous spirit in lots of different sports. As sport reps of the school we were even more excited to take part in the competition, where 12 schools in Derby were able to get together to play, have fun and show how well we worked as a team. 

Throughout the day, we played sports we had practiced during our training sessions, including Tag Rugby, as well as many others. The Year 6 also learnt new sports such as Netball with a Rugby ball and a running style version of Noughts and Crosses.

We started the afternoon with stuck in the mud as a warm up, followed by two full games of Tag Rugby, taking on the roles as Defense and Attack, playing to the best of our abilities. The rest of the afternoon we spent learning new sports and demonstrating respect to both our team mates and the other teams.Tiring and hard work, it was great fun, and even though we didn't come first, the teamwork, respect and communication showed by all, demonstrated true SILVERHILL SPIRIT!
