On Friday the children proudly presented their Inquiry projects to their families. There was such a range of ideas for investigation and presentation – from technology to construction and even cooking . . .
Well done everyone – your projects were beautifully displayed and you explained your learning so confidently and in such interesting ways.
A perfect Spring day and the sun shone warmly on the large crowd at the Derby Day fete. Father Dillon played his favourite Abba songs while the ‘Heavenly’ Hot Dog stall did a booming business and Mr. Sol’s coffee provided time for a relaxing break between snapping up bargains at the stalls, enjoying the rides or a wide variety of other activities on offer. Thanks to the enormous number of people and businesses in our 4 schools Parish Community who contributed in any way to help make this event so successful.

Halloweenis a holiday celebrated in the U.S., Canada and the British Isles on October 31st where people dress in costumes and children go door to door asking for candy. An example of Halloween is when children dress as ghosts and witches and go to neighbor’s doors saying “Trick or treat!” (Dictionary definition)
Pumpkins are commonly carved into decorative lanterns called jack-o’-lanterns.
