2016 - 2017

In November 2016 we held a whole school art exhibition to raise money for the Derby Diocese Kolkata Appeal.  Each child painted a picture in school based on one of the Christian Values and then these were sold.  We raised £217.


This painting was used for the front cover of the Derby Diocese Church Conference booklet that year. 

For our joint project that year in Year 6 we looked at people in the past who still influence our lives today and we looked at the work of William Morris.


In January 2017 Mrs Bladon Visited Kolkata again with Mr Cuddles (The bear in Year 1).

During our time in Kolkata we ran a CPD day for all the teachers.  At the end of the day one of the teachers said, 'You have given us diamonds.'

In July 2017 we held a Kolkata Celebration Day at Derby University. 

Six children from each school attended the event and learnt an Indian inspired dance and a traditional Indian song.

At the end of 2017 Mrs Bladon helped create a Kolkata resource pack for all schools in Derbyshire.
