Keeping you informed

We want to keep parents informed of their child's progress, and about other activities in school. We recognise that good communication benefits the whole school community.

  • Y3 Workshop Day

    Published 25/06/19

    Year 3 had an unforgettable Greek workshop experience today. We learned a lot about the different Greek cities like Athens and Sparta. To understand different types of people and their roles, we participated in many drama and craft activities - it was so much fun! We learned that different Greek Gods were known for different traits such as Athena who was the Goddess of warfare and wisdom. In the afternoon, we created coins with personalised Greek symbols (like Medusa or the Minotaur) out of clay. We also discovered how democracy came into practice and the importance of people power – the right to vote for our leader and the choices they make. Take a look at what kinds of games, acting and craft activities we were involved in!

  • Step into the Future

    Published 21/06/19

    On 20th June, in order to celebrate what is wonderful about out local community, Year 6 children took part in 'Step into the Future' - an annual event in which children from the local community come together in order to celebrate the many things we all have in common.


    After being giving our own coloured t-shirts at Batley Market Place, children walked to Batley Bulldogs Stadium. On the (somewhat rainy) walk, it was lovely to have some of our former pupils join us. While there were many possible activities at the stadium, Warwick Road took part in cricket, football and 'capture the flag' games.

    Once all the activities had been competed, children from all schools came together for a group photograph. Afterwards, Warwick Road’s own Irfaan Soni took to the stage to reflect on his friendship with Reverent Mark Umbleby, discussing the many things they have in common.
     
    Kim Leadbeater, in a closing speech, reminded us of her late sister Jo's now-famous words - 'We have more in common than that which divides us.' This was abundantly clear today.

  • Forbidden Corner

    Published 28/05/19

    On Thursday 23rd May, Y2 enjoyed a trip to the Forbidden Corner.  The children had a great time exploring the temple of the underworld, the labyrinth of tunnels, the extraordinary statues, and the many passages that lead to nowhere.  The children were very brave as they navigated through some of the attractions darker labyrinths.  At every turn, there were decisions to make and tricks to avoid. 

    Although we were fortunate enough to have dry weather, the waterfalls, stepping stones and water features ensured a wet day was had by all.

    Our trip to Magna the Science Adventure Centre!

    Year 3 were extremely fortunate to experience the wonders of nature in Magna, the amazing Science Adventure Centre. As part of our Creative Curriculum topic on ‘Tremors’, we learned about the natural formations on Earth and the forever-changing landscapes (due to eroding rocks and melting lava). We discovered a lot of information about rocks, volcanoes and earthquakes through 4 main pavilions: Earth, Air, Fire and Water. Take a look at our photos to see what we got up to!
