Dear Parents

I hope you had an enjoyable half term and are looking forward to the lead up to Easter. I would like to share with you some of events that have been happening in school

Class News

Nursery Children have been enjoying many traditional stories including The Three Pigs, Jack and the Beanstalk and the Gingerbread Man. They have baked gingerbread men, planted beans, made models and pictures and acted out the stories. They recently had a visit from the road safety team and many children and their parents attended the session.

Reception Pupils have been learning about polar animals and made some super pictures of winter art. They are enjoying their new construction toys and have made some great models.  

Year One Children had a fantastic day at Skelton Grange taking part in lots of activities outdoors including problem solving, having marshmallows by a campfire and learning survival skills.

Year Two Class two also enjoyed a survival adventure day at Skelton Grange where they made dens, built camp fires and took part in problem solving. Their recent assembly about the Hare and the Tortoise and the Squash and Squeeze stories was brilliant.

Year Three In history the children have really enjoyed learning about the Stone Age and the Celts. Next they will be learning about the Romans and are looking forward to their trip where they will be a Roman soldier for the day. As part of their art work on sculpture they made some brilliant paper sculptures.

Year Four Children learned about life saving as part of their swimming sessions last week. They had a fantastic time on their residential trip at Lineham Farm before the holiday where they were taught bushcraft, climbing, animal care and how to make their way around a circuit using ropes as a guide. Many thanks to all the staff for taking them.

Year Five Children are continuing to enjoy their Victorians topic and have been looking at jobs people did as well as learning all about the characters in Oliver Twist. They have been having a Spanish visitor to teach them new vocabulary each week too and recently led a whole class assembly about Spanish including acting out a whole story in Spanish.

Year Six Children have been writing letters presenting two sides to an argument about graffiti and have looked at graffiti in the area. Children have also visited Thwaite Mill as part of their history topic about World War Two and the effects it had on Leeds. They have enjoyed two visits from visitors who have shared information from World War Two about evacuation and morse code.

Other News

Football Once again Mr Robertson and Mr Leigh have entered into the league cup with the school football team and the team are currently in 2nd place.

Governor Visits Governors have visited school to talk to children and look at their books and have been really impressed with the good manners and polite way the children spoke to them. Pupils showed real enthusiasm about their work and are very proud of their achievements.

Lent fundraising This year we will be raising money during Lent by having a sponsored walk at Roundhay Park. We will be sending information about this soon and about the two charities we are supporting this year.

Attendance Congratulations to all our families on excellent attendance so far this year. Since September our attendance stands at 98.9%.

Rotary Recital Award Our final for the recital took place before half term with fourteen finalists performing their poems in front of a panel of judges. A huge thank you to everyone who encouraged their child to learn a poem for our Rotary Recital Competition. Their recitals and the singing from the children in school were excellent and it was a wonderful way to finish the half term. The winners were Blyth Carag for KS1 and Medhin Medhane for KS2. All finalists received a poetry book and certificate.
