The two teams responsible for preparing and presenting their Leeds Lights Project enjoyed a fabulous day at Northern Powergrid. Both teams designed imaginative sets of Christmas lights for the competition against other schools. The prize was for the winning design to be made into an actual light display for Dortmund Square in December 2015. Needless to say, they were thrilled to win and can't wait to see their design constructed and lighting up the Leeds skyline at Christmas.

The majestic Malham Cove is a spectacular curving cliff formation of limestone rock.

The children in Year 6 enjoyed a wide variety of sports when they spent the day at Leeds Beckett University. They took the opportunity to look around the buildings and grounds to give them a taste of university life and inspire them to work hard and go themselves one day.
