Pilsley Primary School Boys Team - Fantastic Result as Runners Up! Well done for all your hard work!
May 2016 - Rocket Seeds Experiment Complete
We have completed the final day of our Rocket Science experiment - we had to record the percentages of seedlings alive in each tray. Our results indicate that 90% of the blue seeds are growing well, but only 72% of the red seeds are still alive. Does this indicate that the red seeds were in Space? Or could it be that seeds, which have been in Space, grow better and hence the blue seeds were in Space?
We are all waiting now to hear from the Royal Horticultural Society who will let us know their results in due course!
RESULTS ARE HERE . . . .
IT WAS THE BLUE PACKETS WHICH HAD BEEN INTO SPACE!

A massive CONGRATULATIONS to our school basketball team who came joint first in the school cluster competition. They then went on to compete at the district final and came joint first again but became runners up when it went to number of baskets scored.

September 2015 - Y5/6 Bath University School Visit
The children stayed in a YMCA youth hostel and participated in physical activities at the university every day - they were taught by university coaches and participated in activities such as swimming, badminton and athletics.
The children enjoyed racing around the 400m outdoor track and also enjoyed jumping into the sand when learning how to do a long jump and triple jump.
The Australian rugby team were at the university at the same time.
During the visit, the children also visited Longleat Safari Park which everybody thoroughly enjoyed.
Overall, it was a fantastic week, the children's behaviour was incredible but everyone was ready for a 'lie in' on Saturday!
Well done to our Y2 children who took part in the 'fun run' at Morton - they ran brilliantly!
POLICE CRIME & FORENSIC DAY - Friday 25th September 2015
Year 6 were visited by the Police and Forensic experts (CSI – Crime scene investigators) – it was fantastic.
The year 6 children had their fingerprints taken, footprints analysed and they even found fingerprints on jars and identified them. WOW what a day. They talked to the police officers and forensic team about careers in the force, and even dressed up in police uniforms, including the stab vests, hi-vis vest and jackets, plus helmets and hats.
The children were very excited about the equipment that they got to use such as truncheons, handcuffs, batons etc. they also had the opportunity to compare this equipment with that used by the Victorian police.
To end the day we asked the children if any of them would like a career within the Police Force or Forensics, and almost every child agreed that they would love to work within this area.
We want to say a big thank you to the Police ladies that came and to the Forensic team - it was super.
