Derby and Derbyshire School Library Services .

 

Dear Headteacher,

 

Derbyshire and Derby School Library Service are holding several Open days in October and November to give schools across Derby and Derbyshire a chance to benefit from some of the resources before the service is decommissioned at the end of March 2019.

 

On receiving this sad news, Mrs  Stanley Wainwright and I went to choose some  amazing artefacts that will enhance teaching and learning across the school . This was bitter sweet, we have been using the service for many years and have a lot to be thankful for. 

 

Exploring the boxes from Derbyshire Library Services was so much fun.

We did some sequencing, problem solving and artwork to finish off the day.

Seven men plotted to blow up the Houses of Parliament. They made a tunnel but didn't get close enough. 

 

The children used the tables and all crawled underneath to mimic tunneling ,  then the rest of the story unfolded.

 

Afterwards, the children verbally retold the story and then sequenced it.

 

Guy Fawkes... remember, remember ...

The children answered many science, literacy and numeracy questions throughout the day:-

  • what do trees give us?
  • how many apples do you think you can see in the tree?
  • what do trees need to help  them produce food?
  • what are the collect nouns used for groups of: cows, sheep, crows, owls and hedgehogs?
  • how many different sounds can you hear?
  • can you tell me a food chain that would exist in the ECO garden?
  • what is 6x100=?
  • what is 600 divided by 100 = ?
  • If there were hundred children in the school how many apples could each child have?
  • how many grams in a kilogram?
  • how much do you think this apple weighs?

Plus more throughout the day because the children asked questions too. smileyno

Letters to Iron Man - great homework, and we loved listening to them.

An Autumn Day. A lovely hour of sketching of what we could see in our beautiful ECO garden.

Time for a quick hot chocolate break!

Building up a sweat.

Counting the apples, teamwork and a physical workout :)

Let's harvest those apples. Let's get picking!

Approximate how many apples you can see in the tree?

Children designed and made, in teams, a boat. They watched to see if their boat would float. Cubes (animals smiley) were gradually added to see how much mass the boat could take before it sank and the forces acting on their boat became unbalanced.

We are learning to write a letter of complaint. The children have been shown a scenario, thank you to our actors and actresses that helped with this, it was great.

 

The pasta was under cooked, the beans were cold and black hair was found within the food. Revolting! The fish didn't smell good either.

Appalling food, unhygienic tables and implements... not to mention the terrible service!
