Dear Parents and Carers,



The Year 3 and Year 4 children played brilliantly at the Hockey tournament in Tideswell yesterday afternoon despite the cold weather! We entered two teams into the tournament and one of our teams won all three games in their group, making it through to the semi-finals! It was a very close match with one of our goals not being picked up by the referee (where's VAR when you need it?!) meaning we lost 1-0. There was some great encouragement shown by our children towards the other teams too, cheering them on and showing excellent sportsmanship throughout the afternoon. Well done everyone!


Clarinet workshop

Class 3 have been to Buxton this morning to play alongside some other schools in a wind instrument workshop. The children were accompanied by a band from the Peak District Music Centre during the morning and it was great to listen to clarinets, trumpets, trombones and saxophones being played in unison! Great job, everyone!


Class 3 International Schools link

We are working to develop our children as global citizens and help them think about how we can look after our world. As part of this work, the children in Class 3 have been involved in a very exciting international project. They have had the opportunity to develop a partnership with a school in Quito, Ecuador. Class 3 have written letters to say 'hello' to their new friends in Quito and enjoyed sharing stories about their school and community.


We are excited to announce that we will be bringing the two classrooms together virtually and are thrilled to be meeting our friends from Quito next week! Class 3 look forward to gaining a deeper understanding of different cultures, lifestyles, and global issues as this project progresses. We have included some samples of the letters that we've written from our display in case you'd like to take a look.
