The week at Spire Junior we are pleased to host a sponsored read. Your children will have the opportunity to read for 30 minutes each day. They can read a variety of books from school or from home. All money raised will go towards purchasing new books for our library.
Beat the street!
The fun has begun! We had Libby in from Beat the Street for assembly today to explain to our great children how Beat the Street will work. All children
seemed energised and excited to get started which is amazing.
How to play:
1. Use the Beat the Street map to find the beat boxes.
2. Tap the box using your fob or card, it will make a noise or light up (one is right by the top gate of school).
3. In order to get your points you have to make it to another box within the hour.
POINTS MEAN PRIZES! As this is being released, we are at number 41, so we need to step it up (literally). Get yourselves active, get out and about, get finding all the beat boxes.
Parents - the cards need registering online using the website that is on the front of the card. You’ve got to fill in all the details - link it to
SPIRE JUNIOR SCHOOL and tap away.
In order for us and you to gain extra points, there is a health survey that needs completing - you will earn yourself 100 POINTS! The survey is simple and takes a matter of minutes (I promise).
Get yourselves active, get out and about around Chesterfield.
On Thursday 6th February, Y5 went for a walk in the local area to survey litter hot spots. We were lucky that it was a beautiful sunny afternoon. Children collected data on the way to Queens Park and in the park itself. Next week we will be looking carefully at our data and producing bar charts.
Just before the Christmas Holiday, both Y5 classes performed in a traditional Victorian Carol Concert. The children sang a selection of Victorian carols and also presented information about different Victorian traditions, that we still participate in today. One of the highlights was asking parents and Mr. Shaw to take part in a traditional Victorian parlour game, often played at Christmas. This game is called 'Ha,He,Ho' and is much harder than it looks !
What an amazing event full of great activities. The children did things from archery to blind fold leading, shuttle runs to bullseye launching. There were so many great activities ran by selected children from Parkside. All the children taken to the event represented the school brilliantly and even won 48 teamwork tokens! So proud. Well done everyone.
