Democracy In Action

What a fantastic opportunity for the children in Year 6 when they were invited by Councillor Lucinda Yeadon to visit the Civic Hall.  They were able to sit in the Council Chamber and conduct their very own debate - should mobile technology be allowed in the classroom?  A great way to learn all about the democratic process.  (I wonder if you can guess who won the debate?)

Leeds Lights

The children in Year 6 won a city wide competition to design a light display for the Christmas lights in Leeds city centre.  They were invited to visit the factory to see their creation brought to life and were able to watch some of the other displays being made.  Sorry folks, but we are unable to show you their design until the unveiling at the great 'switch on' !  

Yorkshire Wildlife Park

Year 3 enjoyed an awesome day out at the Yorkshire Wildlife Park.  In class they are studying the continent of Africa and what better way to understand the magnificence of the African wildlife than to see it for themselves in real life.  They saw giraffes, buffalo, antelope and of course the king of all animals, the lion.

The Tortoise and the Hare

We are very proud of our relationship with Northern Ballet and delighted that they invited our Year 1 children to be their test audience for their latest production for children 'The Tortoise and the Hare'.  At the workshop following the performance, the children shared their feedback which was overwhelmingly positive. What a brilliant afternoon of culture!

Leavers Assembly

It was an emotional time for Year 6 as they presented their final assembly.  Many important visitors attended including governors, local councillors and special friends to the school.  There were four awards for academic achievement, citzenship, contribution to school and music. The talents of all the children were celebrated and parents and families were able to join in the day.
