Foundation Two enjoyed a day exploring the minibeasts and birdlife at Old Moor Reserve. We spent the morning pond dipping, then used binoculars to look for different species of birds from a bird hide. We even spotted a Lapwing, just like our class mascot, Lilly!
After our picnic, we went into the woodland habitat to hunt for more minibeasts! We used large nets to catch the flying minibeasts and looked at them closely through a magnifying glass!!
We had a fantastic time; Old Moor Reserve is definitely worth a visit!

Newsletter : Picture This! June 2018

Dear Parent/Carer,

‘Picture This!’ Is a Rotherham wide art project that focuses on a particular art style or art work that schools are invited to use as inspiration for cross curricular work.

This year the chosen artist is Edward Tinga-Tinga and our school have produced some fabulous pieces of artwork that will be displayed at Magna, along with all the other schools that have taken part.

The exhibition will be open in the Red Hall at Magna from Wednesday 27th June until Tuesday 10th July, during normal hours. Visitors from all over the region will be able to see the high quality work produced by children and young people in Rotherham.

Why not go along for yourselves and take a look at Kimberworth’s display and the work that other Rotherham schools have done too!

The School Games Mark is a Government led award scheme launched in 2012, facilitated by the Youth Sport Trust to reward schools for their commitment to the development of competition across their school and into the community, and we are delighted to have been recognised for our success.

We are extremely proud of our pupils for their dedication to all aspects of school sport, including those young volunteers, leaders and officials who made our competitions possible. As part of our application, we were asked to fulfil criteria in the areas of participation, competition, workforce and clubs, and we are pleased that the hard work of everyone at our school has been rewarded this year.

A special thanks to:
