Music To Our Ears!

Crich Junior School were delighted to be awarded a Music Quality Mark in January 2008 at the Assembly Rooms for the excellent provision and opportunities we are able to offer our pupils. As a new Derbyshire award we

We would like to give you a flavour of music in our school. Music is an essential ingredient of our ethos as we believe it raises children�s selfesteem, increases confidence and brings enjoyment from being able to perform together.

As part of Derbyshire County Council�s Wider Opportunities in Music programme, all Year 5 and 6 pupils as well as the staff in class have been learning to play the trombone or trumpet. This has been a bit nerve-wracking for the staff but good, as it reminds us what it is like to be a learner again. The class provided a short after-dinner rendition of Jungle Bells to the Infant School when we held our joint Christmas Lunch. This was enjoyed by all and we hope we are producing budding players who will aspire to join Crich Brass Band.

What music means to us:

Emelia Wild

�It feels exciting to play because I really like loud things! The teachers are funny and kind, and learning to play an instrument is a new experience for those who have not done it before�like me!�

Calum McKenzie

�In brass lessons I really have time to think. They help me concentrate and extend my musical knowledge.�

Demi Ball

�The lessons make me want to play more instruments.�

Sarah Glover

�We get to make up lots of different rhythms and put them together.�

Ainsley Walker

�It�s fun because you get to express yourself through the music. It�s really good being one part of a big group when everyone comes together.�

Ellie Hopley

�It�s good being able to work with other instruments and not just guitars!�

Matthew Birks

�I enjoy playing in the orchestra because I get to make up different beats to go with different musical pieces. Drums are important to keep the whole orchestra in time together.�

Mrs Coppen

�I�m not finding it too easy, but the kids are giving me lots of support and enthusiasm.�

All pupils also have the opportunity to play within our school orchestra or recorder club. Children can learn to play the recorder, violin, drums, trombone, cornet, guitar, and flute. As those who were able to see our Christmas performance, the orchestra supported La Nativit� with great success, playing pieces such as Rudolf the Red Nose Reindeer and Silent Night.

We will hopefully be playing during the coming months at events in the village. Please come and hear us.

Our Great Potato Taste

The English Kestrel Wins By A Whisker.

On September 19th Crich Junior School children took part in the great potato taste. We compared three different varieties, English Kestrel, Irish Kerr�s Pinks and English Golden Wonders, all grown by our own fair hands in our vegetable patch on the school field.

Earlier this year with lots of help from the local horticultural club, three trenches were dug on the bottom of our school field. We planted beetroot, carrots, green beans, onions, and of course our potatoes. We were all very proud of the vegetables that we harvested. Some of our onions were used to make Quiche Lorraine with Mrs Howard.

At last the day had come to dig up our potatoes. We plunged the garden fork into the earth and lifted up the roots and there they were, pounds and pounds of fabulous potatoes.

We couldn�t wait to taste them! Mrs Howard helped us scrub the skins clean and we put them in the oven to bake. It seemed like an age before they were ready but finally one by one we began to taste all three varieties.

We had to vote on the colour, texture and flavour of each variety. Some children enjoyed the powdery texture of the Golden Wonder others preferred the more moist texture of the Kestrel. Most thought the Kerr�s Pinks were the nicest colour.

These are some of the comments received about the potatoes.

Soft fluffy texture - Timmy

Sweet buttery taste - Ryan

Soft in your mouth, rich creamy - Lucy

Light brown with pink smooth eyes - Sammy

All sorts of sizes and shapes - Emma

Smooth light brown with pink eyes, long thin eyes - Sarah

It was generally felt that the Golden Wonder "smells nice" while the Kestrel potato has a waxy taste.

All the votes were counted and verified by an independent adjudicator, (Mrs Packard) the results were: In third place came the Golden Wonder. Second place went to the Irish Kerr Pinks, but in first place it was the English Kestrel.

Our potato growing has also inspired us in our music lessons. All Year 5 and 6 children are learning to play the trumpet or trombone and we have named our music groups after different potato varieties.

We would like to take this opportunity to say a BIG THANK YOU to everyone from the Cliff Inn Horticultural Club for their help and inspiration.

Now we are all looking forward to next years planting and perhaps growing three new potato varieties.

Bonjour tout le monde. French activity day

On Thursday 19th April the whole school took part in an activity day based on the French language and culture. Some children have visited France on holiday and one or two have lived there, but for most children it was a new experience.

The day was split into 4 activities and the children moved round each activity in groups of 14. The activities were cross curricular and included many aspects from both the foundation and core subjects.

One activity required the children to use their ICT skills as, in pairs, they had to produce an A4 information page on either a famous person, place or event in France. Once their choice had been made they used the Internet, pictures and writing to produce a colourful and informative piece of work.

�It was interesting to learn about somewhere new. I didn�t realise Mont Blanc was so high� � Conor.

We all need a passport to visit foreign places and so the children had to make their own . Their passport however was somewhat unusual in that it included their eye and hair colour along with their name, age and address. There was also a section for them to write comments on the other activities as they went along.

Shopping for delicious food is an important part of French life so the children had to visit a French shop and buy goods using euros. All the products were labelled in French and the children had to ask for what they wanted, along with using merci et s�il vous plait.

The final activity was food tasting. Each group had a selection of typical French food to try � such as camembert, crepes au chocolat, baguette and cr�me fraiche.

Tiffany said �I enjoyed tasting the different foods but didn�t like the cheese!�

The day was very successful and the children got a lot from it. Robert thought that the French were very lucky to have such lovely food.

Since the start of the summer term the children have been studying the French language and culture each week. They have enjoyed the outdoor activities and videos in particular and some have commented on how good it is to learn a second language. Bonnes vacances.

Flamborough Head

Early one Thursday morning in June the children waited eagerly for the coach to arrive to take them to the seaside for the day. The weather forecast looked promising but only time would tell.

We managed the 3 hour journey without any toilet stops or sickness, an amazing feat in itself !

Once there, the children had a variety of activities to do � sketching, interviewing locals and tourists, rock-pooling, sand castle building and a beach survey.

Lunch was eaten on the beach whilst the sun shone and at the end of the afternoon there was an ice lolly for everyone. Visitors to Flamborough Head commented on the excellent behaviour of the children which rounded off a brilliant day. It was only when we had set off for home that the rain started.

During the following days the children produced work about their trip in the form of a collage and a report. It was an excellent day out that was thoroughly enjoyed by everyone involved.

Music at Crich � a musical report by Robert, Conor & Adam

Thumbnail of Photo of Junior School orchestra

We all enjoy music at Crich Juniors, whether it�s practising singing, or having a great time playing instruments in the school orchestra. Those are both things that are encouraged very much by our Headteacher, Mrs Julian, as she has always loved music.

We also have a never ending list of music lessons including:

  • We will always remember all of you (we hope you do too).

The orchestra have recently performed a concert in aid of the Luncheon Club which was thoroughly enjoyed by parents, friends and members of the community.

Crich Market Place Traffic Survey Report

On Thursday the 30th of November Crich Junior School conducted two traffic surveys on the Market Place. A year 3 pupil gave us the idea in her school council manifesto as she was concerned about the amount of traffic travelling through our village.

picture of traffic surveyYear's 5 and 6 sorted themselves into groups. At 9am and midday we went up to the Market Place and positioned ourselves in sensible safe places to carry out the survey.

We put groups positioned at:

Bowns Hill, The bus stop, Bottom of Sandy Lane, Near the bakery

We were only interested in traffic travelling into and parking in the village square.

In our 9am survey there were lots of cars travelling through the village and delivery lorries double parking making it difficult for cars to get through. This also made crossing the road more dangerous for pedestrians. We saw only one lorry coming into and out of the quarry.

During our survey at midday, the amount of cars travelling through the village was about the same, the biggest difference was in trucks and vans, there was a decrease in the number. The amount of pedestrians increased. Other vehicle figures stayed much the same.

picture of traffic survey

As a result of our survey, we think more organised parking areas, speed bumps and a pedestrian crossing would make the Market Place safer.

The best part of the geography report was doing the traffic survey because we got to work outside and it was fun. I have learned that even though I live in Crich drawing a map of the Market Place is very hard. - Zoe B

I have enjoyed doing the counting of the questionnaires because we got to see how many sheets we got back, and I got to write on the board. I have learned that the Market Place is more dangerous than I thought. - Bruce

Report and results of the questionnaire

Following comments made by one of the youngest pupils in school, we investigated the hypothesis that - the market place is dangerous for pedestrians. This was part of our geography topic.

First of all we came up with some questions related to the dangers on the market place e.g. yes/no questions, tick box questions and 1 to 10 questions. All the year 5 and year 6 pupils took home 4 questionnaires to ask people in the village if they thought that the market place is dangerous. We asked people like those that go to Luncheon Club, family and friends. On regular visits to our friends at the Luncheon Club, we talked to them about their experiences and what they think should happen. We found that they had similar ideas to us.

81 questionnaires were returned and 90% of these people think that it is a dangerous place. On a scale of 1 to 10, 58 people thought that the market place was very dangerous.

Here are some of our other results: % of returned questionnaires agreed that these features made it a dangerous place:

  • Lots of vehicles - 77%
  • Poor visibility at the junctions - 73%
  • Narrow roads - 48%
  • Dangerous parking area - 75%
  • Speeding - 73%
  • Parking in dangerous positions - 80%

Other dangers indicated were; double parking, lack of clear road markings, too many large vehicles, poor driving (lack of indication), a very complicated road junction.

% of returned responses which considered that these features would improve safety:

  • traffic lights - 43%
  • speed bumps - 35%
  • zebra crossing - 84%
  • speed cameras - 38%
  • reduced speed limit - 46%
  • school crossing patrols - 51%

Additional suggestions which would improve safety are: wider pavements, warning lights on approaches, island in the middle of market place or a roundabout, pedestrian crossings.

From this questionnaire we have discovered that something should be done for the safety of pedestrians of all ages as well as drivers of various vehicles. Many accidents have occurred causing broken bones. Maybe next time, some one won't be so lucky.

We would like to thank everyone who helped us by filling in our questionnaire.

Supermarket vouchers

Dear Villagers. A big thank you to you all for all the vouchers you have collected over the post year from Sainsburys and Tesco. It has been lovely to see so many of you coming into school to pop your vouchers in the box. Your efforts have made a real difference to the amount of equipment the children have been able to choose for the playground. We have just taken delivery of our new games 'bought� with the 6694 vouchers that were collected during the summer.

Thank you for...

  • All the games because it makes playtime fun - Timmy.
  • The jump ropes. I like them because it gives me more ways to skip - Neve.
  • The cats cradles because Mrs Denman teaches me different tricks at dinner time - Emelia.
  • Giving us lots of different games to play even if we don't want to play football - Emily.
  • Lots of games so we get more exercise to make us healthier - Jamie.
  • The toys they get better and better and they help us improve our skills - Katy.
  • The Pogo Sticks. I like jumping up and down - Bruce.

  • Giving us so much fun. It makes everyone really happy! - Sarah
  • Our future Andy Murray says I like the tennis rackets and balls because I never get bored of tennis and can even get a game in at Breakfast Club! - Andrew

It is very heart-warming to see how much the community is supporting our children and citizens of the future. Thank you once again.

Yours faithfully, all the Children at Crich Junior School


It�s a dog�s life

Can you remember a previous article we wrote in the Spring 2007 issue, reporting on the traffic situation on the Market Place? Well, we have now gone a step further. With help from the Infant School, parents, and children, we have compiled a school travel plan. All of the children, parents, and staff were asked to fill in a questionnaire regarding their means of transport to and from school. We found that the majority of children walk to school.

However, some parents displayed reluctance in letting their children walk due to the consistent dog fouling on Crich�s pavements and paths. The responsibility of cleaning up dog foul lies with the owner, and we hope that this article will bring to the attention of owners the importance of clean paths, especially those leading down to the school. As such, we plan to raise awareness through various tasks during the summer term, with a little help from a certain member in school.

Peggy readingAs those with relations in the school will surely be aware, we have a recent addition to the staff, serving the position of Counsellor, Reading Partner, and Cuddle Administrator. Her name is Peggy, and her most famous features include a wet nose, waggy tail, and cheeky personality.

The benefits of having a school pet, and especially one as social as a dog, have proven successful in areas across the board. Initially a play-time treat, the three-times-a-day �Peggy Duty� opportunities have taught pupils about care, responsibility, and respect for animals. As the months have passed, Peggy�s working days have steadily filled up with reading time, during which she listens to individuals who require informal and comfortable surroundings to enhance their confidence, and positive play time, involving play with pupils experiencing illness or anxiety.

Peggy in the playgoundPeggy�s presence in the school is received with excitement and interest. Her role was commended in our recent Ofsted report, praising her for her contribution to the �exceptional care� the school provides for pupils. Peggy has also benefited personally from life within school, having become familiar and comfortable with a variety of adults and children. Her place here has encouraged a healthy approach to pupil involvement with animals, and she has become a significant feature in promoting cleanliness, safety, and tolerance; she�s a real bonus to school life!

Our Valentine Surprise!

Our Valentine message from our recent Ofsted Inspection was that Crich Juniors is an �exciting place to learn�. Our whole school community is thrilled by the outcome of our recent Inspection because it highlighted as outstanding the areas we most value as having the greatest impact on children�s learning and life outcomes.

  • The curriculum, including all our extra-curricular activities, is outstanding. The Inspector wrote in his letter to the children that their �Valentine Musical Concert, in the Chapel, is something I will remember for a long time. It was brilliant�.
  • Our children really enjoy their education � one of our children said to the Inspector, �I�ve been to lots of schools and this is the best.�
  • Behaviour is excellent which confirms the feedback we receive both from visitors in school and when we are out on visits.
  • Our ethos that �every child is gifted and talented�. When learning is �new and difficult� we tailor the activities to match the pupils individual learning styles. Did you have a wiggly bottom at school? Were you always told off for not sitting still? Here we enable children to concentrate on the task in hand by being able to stand at the computers or in class rather than focussing on sitting still.
  • A school that is at the centre of its community.

Leashaw Woods part 1

Thanks to Dave Wright of Holloway, the children at Crich Junior School have been given a wonderful opportunity to extend their learning out from the traditional classroom. He has given us permission to use his 45-acre ancient woodland, Leashaw Wood, to develop the creative curriculum. We intend to visit the woods several times a year not only to appreciate the seasonal changes but to enjoy a wide range of activities.
Here are a couple of thoughts from our children about their first visit.
On Monday the 23rd of June we went on a trip to Leashaw Woods. We had the privilege of being the first school to go there as it is a private wood.
At about half nine we set off on the long trek. It took about an hour but we got there eventually. When we arrived a man told us about the rules. Then we went out to do what we had planned. Make dens in the wild!
We had already decided who we were going to build our dens with back at school, and me and my group set out.
We found what looked like a good spot and started collecting materials. But then things started to go wrong. While I went off to collect materials the rest of the team wasn�t able to construct the den. Eventually they decided to move location. I thought that this was going to crush our hopes of getting the best den. But I was wrong. We were able to start on a brilliant den. While I foraged, they built. After lunch we made the inside comfortable and were starting on final touches.....when we heard a shout. The judges were coming!

We went into a frenzy. We used communication and a viewpoint to learn the judges� location. We prepared ourselves when we saw them, only a group away! As we finished, the judges approached. They began
the inspection. On the whole they liked our den, and we only lost one point for bad teamwork at the start. We gave final warning to Neve�s team, and then relaxed. We�d done it!
We were forced to demolish our dens, but it was worth it! After that we had to do descriptive words on the wood for a story but we did not do very well.
Finally we went home. It had been an exhausting day!

On the 23rd of June 2008 Crich Juniors went to Leashaw Woods to learn about building shelters with natural materials. We walked there and Mr. Orridge accidentally walked past the entrance, so we had to walk back the way we came to find the woods!! When we got there we went over the safety rules.
We learnt what the difference was between fern and bracken. Fern has little balls on the stalk, which we were allowed to use, and bracken�s stalk was smooth, which we weren�t, because it can cause medical problems. Mr. Orridge meanwhile had set out the boundaries for us to build our shelters in. We were given about three and a half hours to construct our shelters. We got to work straight away building the walls first, and then we started to do the roof. We were called for dinner after about one and a half hours (we had all brought packed lunches). We then carried on with our shelters. When we�d finished we were judged on our shelters and how good our team work was. We received seven out of eight for our den, due to a small disagreement we had at the beginning, which was where to build our den, but we were so excited and happy to be free, it was very hard to think straight. Our den proved to be strong and had a good roof. Finally, we had to break down our dens, to leave no trace that we had had so much fun and excitement, but it was important that we left everything as we found it, so other people could experience the fun we had enjoyed. It was really fun and I would love to do it again.

It was lovely to welcome back two ex-pupils.

Work Experience at Crich Junior School by Luke and Ollie

On the 12th of May, we started our work experience placement. At Anthony Gell School, which is the school we have been at for the past four years, every Year Ten student has to do two weeks of work experience at a placement of their choice, and we were no different, and we, of course chose to work at Crich Junior School.
As past pupils, it was quite strange walking back into our old school, after four years of being at Secondary School, but as expected, there were a lot of things we recognized, and a lot of things we didn�t. The school had obviously changed for better, as far as we were concerned.
Because it was the beginning of SATS week for the Year Sixes, and routine testing for the rest of the school, we didn�t have an absolute plan as to what we were going to do on our first day, but we knuckled down straight away with helping putting out test papers and reading questions to those who were stuck with their maths reading. Of course the highlight of the day was lunch time, sandwiches, of course!
At the school, the current theme was on Africa, so one of our tasks was to create some information sheets about some famous African people for the school�s �African activity day�. We drafted some ideas of the people we could write about, and these included Nelson Mandela, Kofi Annan and Wangari Maathai, the 2004 Nobel Peace Prize winner. All of these people had contributed something great to their countries and deserved in our opinion some recognition.
At the end of the first week, Mrs. Coppen very kindly took all the Year Sixes and us up to the park for ice creams, which were positively delicious! We had the pleasure of Kev the Basset Hound�s company as well!
We were told at the end of the first week that there was a �special� task waiting in store for us for the coming week, and we only found out on the next Monday what it actually was. Helping to make the homework diaries.
As we soon found out it was a huge job, and one that the kids didn�t really see, so it was good to get involved in some behind the scenes work, and it made you appreciate the little things that go into making school life smoother and how sometimes we take things like that for granted.
We had to use guillotines to cut each bit of paper for the homework diaries from A4 to A5. This took rather a long time but we felt we�d done a good job and helped reduce the workload. The Africa Day was excellent and everyone enjoyed it.
We had a great time whilst at Crich Junior School and it brought back memories of why we�d enjoyed it so much when we were Juniors. A big thank you to Mrs. Julian and the staff for making us feel so welcome.



In our last article we wrote about the fantastic opportunity we have been offered by local landowner Dave Wright to use his wood for our outdoor learning work.
We have taken him up �big time� on this offer so that this term all children in Y4 and Y5 have been working in the woods each Friday morning on an environmental project. The children are studying the various layers of woodland � ground, plants and shrubs and the tree canopy.

Today me and my class mates went to Leashaw wood. We went to learn more about the habitats and plants to be found there.
First we looked for some plants and we found a yellow mushroom surrounded by Dead Man's Fingers (that is a kind of fungus).
After that we saw a hazel nut tree, so we looked under it and there were cracked nuts left by a squirrel or a wood mouse.
Then we went over to a stream and we saw something surprising. It was a newt which was brown and spotty.
Before we left we saw a Robin, Forget-me-nots and a Leopard slug.
I liked seeing the newt and the mushrooms. The woods are a great place to learn about plants and animals especially when we have got Mrs Varty who is an expert on wildlife
Emma Lawrence, aged 8


Today my class went to some nearby woods. We got split into groups. We were going to look at habitats. We were all very excited. At last we were there! People crouched up in a corner to look at a mouldy football (it was for a dog to play with.) Mrs Varty told us what to do if we see any poisonous fungi. The first thing my group studied was some holly. My teacher told us to sketch a picture of it and then write "holly" next to the picture of it. Then we studied ferns.
I did not do the best pictures because I had to crouch down to draw. I saw a little stream but there was a giant slug near it. We saw some fungus growing on an old log. Mrs Varty said it was a type of fungi called Black Elf. Unfortunately the fungi we were looking for (called dead mans fingers) we did not find. We saw some wood ants crawling all over a pine tree. The wood ants went on to Andrew's coat. Oliver told me that wood ants can sting if they bite. He also told me if they were threatened the wood ants would spray acid. Andrew did not get sprayed by the wood ants. We looked at some berries in the woods (I could not work out what type of berries they were). All I knew about the berries were that they were red. Then it was time to go back to the bus. We retraced our steps over stones, stepping on the brambles, past the fungus log (the one which did not have the elf fungi on) and back to the bus. We got our seat belts on and went back to school.
What a great way to spend a Friday morning.

Charlotte Hand, aged 7


Today year 3 and 4 went to Leashaw woods. We went to learn about habitats by looking around the great big woods. We were put into four groups and set off to look at all the different things and it was very sunny and warm.
First we went to look for things that live under the ground, like wood lice and beetles and I found an earwig.
After that we went to look for an ants nest. We were looking all over the place it was very enjoyable (but we didn�t find one!).
Last of all we made our way back whilst looking in mice boxes to see if there where any nesting in them. The only thing that was in them was grubs, slugs and some feathers.
The conclusion I reached was that many creatures live under the ground.

Alex Wild, aged 8

We found lots of things in the woods. Can you identify these four from the clues?
What am I?
I am black and red.
Lots of us live together in a nest.
We have a motorway up and down the wall.
We can bite and spray acid.
There are thousands of us in the wood.

I grow on a tree in autumn.
I grow in bunches.
I am red and round.
Birds love to eat me because we are juicy.
People think I am poisonous but I am not.
We can be made into medicine or wine or jelly.
My name mixed up is REAR BROWNY.

I am a fungus.
I grow in grass and rotten logs.
I am black.
I am long and pointy.
I am quite fat and a bit cylindrical.
My name suggests you would find me in a graveyard.

I am small.
I am wiggly.
I have lines on my back.
I am slimy.
I have four legs and a tail.
I like to live in the water.
I am an amphibian.


The wind in t�woods
The furious wind travelled through the damp wood.
I wonder what it sees.
It spies a tree as large as an elephant.
It sees some rotten acorns on the leafy floor.
The angry wind roars through the cold wood.
I wonder what it hears.
It hears a red breasted robin singing in a tall apple tree.
Ethan and Kiran

Thank you as a community for supporting our children by giving them opportunities to develop their citizenship and life skills through gardening; using money for shopping; raising inter-generational awareness through Luncheon Club; playing in Crich Band; and for the support we get from all the churches. Finally thank you for reading these articles. Over the years they have provided a potted history of the school
