Keeping you informed

  • Santa visits EYFS

    Published 01/07/19

    On Tuesday, 18th December, a very special visitor came to see us.

     

    This visitor wore a bright red suit and arrived on his sleigh, which was being pulled by reindeer. Yes, that’s right…it was Santa! The Reception children had created a special chair in Santa’s grotto and left milk and cookies in anticipation for his visit. They were very excited when they heard the bells jingling from the outdoors.  Despite their excitement, they were very well behaved when he came around the corner with his huge sack full of presents. The children told him how hard they’ve worked so far this year and said they had all been nice.  Each child waited patiently for their turn to meet Santa and receive a gift. Thank you for coming, Santa - we hope you come again next year.

  • YR visit Hyrstlands Park

    Published 01/07/19

    On Wednesday, 28th November, the Reception  children set off on an adventure to discover the signs of autumn.

     

    This half term’s trip was to Hyrstlands Park, the children walked up to the park with one goal in mind: to find as many signs of autumn as they could.

     

    The children had been learning about the current season throughout the half-term and were excited when they had the opportunity to investigate and discover the world around them. Though many of the children had been to this park before, it was as if they were seeing it through a new set of eyes. The children had a check list of things they could find and were very keen in using newly acquired language such as ‘bare’ to describe the trees. The children collected souvenirs to bring back to school such as conkers, which they used for counting and leaves to create autumn pictures.

  • A Christmas Carol

    Published 17/12/18

    On Tuesday, 11th December, it was Christmas Eve in Victorian Leeds, but the cold-hearted Ebenezer Scrooge hadn't an ounce of festive cheer.

    For this half-term's trip, children in Year 6 travelled to Leeds to watch a Leeds Playhouse production of 'A Christmas Carol'. Children had been studying the novella throughout the half-term and were clearly delighted to see it brought to life. Though it was two hours in length, children responded enthusiastically (and one or two were perhaps even frightened by some of the ghostly goings on).

    In October 2018, children from Year 1 to Year 6 took part in the first whole-school write of the year. Each half-term, all children will come together to watch a clip from a video, and afterwards they will write their own paragraphs about what they have watched. The video for this year is called 'First Date'.

    Year 1 - Rumaysa Rumi Bulsari
    Year 2 - Romana Fatima
    Year 3 - Zainab Kazi
    Year 4 - Zuha Shaheer
    Year 5 - Muaaz Patel
    Year 6 - Arsalan Nawaz
     
    Please have a look at the work produced, and check back next half-term for the second paragraph.
