Modern British Values

Mrs Whiteley talked about the Rule of Law and how the police are here to help us.


The children had fun dressing up as police men and women!

Mrs Taylor's workshop during 'Modern British Values day'!


We learnt all about democracy; played a board game and did some debating.

West Midlands Safari Park visit

We had a fantastic day yesterday. The children were fascinated by some of the unusual animals that we saw. In particular we were amazed by the length of the giraffe’s tongue when it licked the coach window, surprised by how much the hippos enjoyed eating cabbages and a bit perturbed by how smelly the bats were! The children behaved impeccably and year 5 and 6 children impressed the zoo staff with their knowledge of endangered species.

I was very proud of them all!

Making a speech for the school council elections....

Mrs Taylor and a group of children enjoyed an arts day at the Town Hall working with artists from the Wirksworth Festival. The children behaved beautifully and were a pleasure to take.

Look at these lovely mobiles we made for the Stoney Wood Celebrations!

Today Y6 showed off their Samba drumming and percussion skills to the rest of the school and invited Y6 parents.
