Saint Anne's Church
Saint Anne's Church worked hard to celebrate the lives of soldiers who fought and died in World War 1 on Remembrance Sunday. Ambergate Primary School were involved in creating arts and crafts to decorate the church. Class 1 drew poppies, Class 2 created a plaque and Class 3 made a war memorial statue. We will be visiting the church to see the community's efforts on Monday 12th November!
Lest We Forget 1914 - 1918
Ripley All Saints - Shadow mime Performance
On 8th November 2018, Class 3 performed at All Saints Church. They had two workshops to learn how to shadow mime and create the props beforehand. The children were focused and their performance was superb! Well done to all of the children involved, the entire show was powerful and moving. Thank you to all who came to watch.
Rolls Royce Engineers!
Class 3 spent a morning at Rolls Royce learning about what it means to be an Engineer. We learned about the history of Rolls Royce; the job of an engineer; how aeroplane engines have evolved to the jet engines we use today; how aeroplanes fly and so much more. More pictures to follow!
We completed a Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) challenge today that comprised of making a roller coaster with a limited number of resources.
The children worked in mixed aged groups of 4-5 children and this mixed up the whole school as children could work in any room and in any space.
Have a look at our roller coaster pictures from this afternoon!
Class 2 have been working really hard sorting all of the items brought in for the Harvest Festival. We have been busy making and organising hampers, delivering them in the village and have had a visit in school from the Padley Centre in Derby! The volunteers were taken aback by the amount of food and the generosity of the village. They asked us to pass on a huge thank you on behalf of the charity.
Our Harvest Festival consisted of Flower songs from Class 1, Egyptian Harvest facts from Class 2 and a George Ezra cover and WW1 facts from Class 3. Reverend Phil Horner closed our service with thoughts and prayers at this special time.
Thank you for attending and donating so kindly.
Class 2 Trip to Derby Museum October 2018
Class 2 enjoyed visiting Derby museum as part of their Egyptian topic. It was a great day, which included looking at artifacts, preparing a mummy and making a sarcophagus.
Years 3, 4, 5 and 6 all went down to the West Midlands for a residential next to the safari park. They stayed in glamping tents and practiced their bushcraft, before enjoying a day on the theme park.
