On Monday 19th November pupils from Y4 travelled to St Michael's Environmental Centre at Hathersage for a week long residential trip. The following has been written by Luke in Class 7...
I had the best time at Hathersage. My favourite bit was walking up Stanage Edge where we went in Robin Hoods Cave. I also liked it when we went to see Padley Gorge with Miss Burgin. It was great that we got to watch a movie every night and we also played bingo in Little John's Hotel. I liked it when we went to Treak Cliff Cavern on the way back to school.
We supported Children in Need with a huge cake sale and non-uniform day and are delighted to report that we raised an impressive £484.40! Thank you for your generosity and donations of cakes and cookies.
During the October half term we have been asked to make a poppy to commemorate the end of the First World War (100th year Anniversary). We have used tissue paper, pencils, ribbon and beads. We have all had a great time making poppies. You can see a selection of them below.
Written by Abigail and Imogen, Class 11.
Those poppies judged as 'Highly Commended' will be displayed at Kirkby Library along with a selection from our calloboration of schools. Why not take a look?
A terrifically terrifying time was had by everyone attending the Halloween Disco. Children had fang-tastic fun dancing and taking part in competitions and there was a spook-tacular performance of 'Thriller' by the children from Dance Club. Thank you to our wonderful PTA members who put in so much hard work decorating the Centre and serving food.
Today was the turn of the children in Class 1 to invite their parents/carers to join them for lunch. The children really enjoyed sharing their lunch time with their adult and parents commented on how delicious the food was.
A very special visitor joined us for dinner today... Spiderman! The children enjoyed a delicious lunch of Nottinghamshire or quorn sausage with mash potato and Yorkshire pudding followed by a choice of iced sponge, banana custard or fresh fruit. You will see from the pictures below that the children were captivated by their visitor.
The Book Fair will be arriving in school soon, with hundreds of new children’s books to browse and buy. It will be held in The Centre, starting on Tuesday 9th October until Friday 12th, from 3.30 -4.00.
There are over 200 titles to choose from, with prices starting from £2.99. Don’t forget that every book you buy helps get free books for the school.
School dinners are very popular with the children at Morven Park and during the course of the year we will be inviting parents/carers to come in to share the lunch time dinner service with their child. Parents/carers of children in Rec 1 and Rec 4 came in on Tuesday 25th September and it was so nice to receive all the positive feedback given on their feedback forms. One parent said "I really enjoyed having lunch with my son, it was lovely to join him in his environment and see what he's actually doing at lunch time. The whole experience left me smiling, it was wonderful. Well done to everyone!" another parent said "Very nice food, good portion size, the children enjoyed it".
On Tuesday 18th September children took part in a Religion and Belief Workshop aimed at promoting equality, respect and non-discrimination. The St Philip's Centre provided a 'marketplace' of faith and belief with their colourful stalls of religious artefacts, cultural foods and items of dress which the children were able to try on.
