Making a film!
Children from Year 5 have worked with children from Ashover Primary School in Derbyshire in producing a DVD, alongside Derby City and Derby County FC, which promotes reading, writing and maths. Our children interviewed children from Ashgate Primary and Pear Tree Infant School about why reading, writing and maths are important. Also Derby County player Simon Dawkins came to talk about his experiences as a child.
Simon Dawkins brought an autographed Derby County shirt to be used as a raffle prize for children in KS2 during the Summer Term 2015.

Bowmoor and Kirkland arranged for Phill Hogg, Paratriathlete, to come into school and talk to the children about road safety. Bowmoor and Kirkland also provided all the children in school with florescent vests so they can be seen in the dark.

Never be afraid of taking a risk and enjoy being part of a team was the message he gave to the pupils. At the end of the talk Brandon answered many questions for the children, and left a very big impression with them and their teachers. After Brandon had finished the ever popular Rammie answered questions on his job with the Rams with the help of Isaac his driver.
