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.

In this section you will find information about everything that is happening in and outside of our school as well as photographs and videos of our amazing children in action.

  • Batley Library Closure

    Published 26/01/18

    On 26th January, three children from Warwick Road Primary School, Maryam Daji, Mufais Mohammed and Maroof Vachhiyat, ventured to Batley Library. Dismayed to learn that there were murmurs that the library might be closed, the children wrote a library detailing why this should not be the case.

    During the public meeting, the children were invited on stage to read their letter aloud. They received a round of applause. A copy of the letter was taken to be framed in the library.

    Additionally, a local journalistic was also at the event, and chose to write an article on it - this was published on the 2nd February, and an online version can be found below.

  • Year 3 Visit Tesco

    Published 24/01/18

    On Wednesday children in Y3 had the opportunity to visit Tesco as part of their creative curriculum topic. Children split into 4 groups and each group had the opportunity to investigate fair trade products and what they are and investigate where different vegetables are grown. Children also investigated which fruits and vegetables can be brought fresh, frozen and tinned. All the children were given £1.50 to spend in Tesco on fruit, children grouped together to buy more exotic fruit which was more expensive. At the end of our trip children were able to use the self-checkout to pay for the fruit.

We were fascinated with how they looked and moved and learnt lots of interesting facts about them!
