Class 3 Derby Open Centre Trip

Class 3 had a great day at The Derby Open Centre. They visited The Derby Jamia Mosque. Then onto The Guru Arjan Dev Gurdwara where they donated food, grown in their class garden, to give to the kitchen to cook for all the people that are fed daily in the Gurdwara. After that they were treated to food prepared in the Gurdwara kitchen.

Mrs Rogers Apparently they do need to be really well washed out as Mrs Angrave has had first hand experience of this! She once made a massive cow out of milk bottles and it started to pong badly after two weeks. Glad she warned us! Just drop them off at school and we'll pass them onto Mrs Rogers. And thank you.

Week one and we're off!

Everyone has settled in really well and more importantly are happy to be at school. The children seemed pleased to be back at school and lessons started straight away. This year we have some really exciting topics across all classes which will be engaging, expressive and innovative while maintaining our high standards and expectations. For more information on what your child’s Topic is this half term click here. We all came together on Tuesday in Collective Worship to find out what we had all been doing over the last six weeks. As a school we have visited many places over the holidays and had many new experiences. We have been to America, Beamish, Biggin, Bournemouth, Canada, Cornwall, Cumb

Back to School!

With just days to go until, new and old, start the new school year at St Giles School we have messages from our Head Teacher, Mrs Forster and our Class Teachers telling us what amazing things will be happening in the classroom.
