School update!

This week, in school, is Healthy School’s Week – we have the MAD team in (Military Active Days) and we have children taking part in various Sporting Events.  We have our Enabling Enterprise Days and our British Values Day this week also!

We have D-Side working with Year 4 on Friday and Year 1 are visiting Yorkshire Wildlife Park.  We have a group of 10 Year 3 girls taking part in a Tennis Competition at JCCS.

Danny Gough (Class Dynamix) is working with Year 6 on their end of year production – watch this space!

Last week we went to Cober Hill – the children had a fantastic week – the sun was shining and they took part in a variety of activities – a day on Scarborough Beach also (pictures will be put on our website – so check them out!).

We only have 3 weeks left of this academic year – how time flies!  We still have visits and visitors taking place over the next few weeks (updates on School Story) – Reception will be visiting Temple Newsam and our Gardening Club will be planting planters in and around the new housing in Middleton!  Next week – Class 10 will be going to Lineham Farm for the week – we hope the sun will shine as it will help the week be even better than we know it will be!

That’s the latest update from me – have a great rest of this week and a great weekend!

Busy! Busy! Busy!

We had a very busy week, last week with children being involved in all sorts of things!  It was Arts Week in school last week and the children took part in a variety of Arts activities.   We had a number of visitors to school – singing and composing with our children, amongst other things!  Total Dance worked with KS1 and Back Chat Brass Band worked with Years 3 and 4.  A Poet was in school working with Year 5 and Year 6.  Danny Gough was working with Year 6 on their end of year DVD and LUFC – Primary Choices – were also working with Year 6!  Year 2 went to Armley Leisure Centre to take part in the Skipping Festival and on Friday, Alison Wain, from Middleton Baptist Church came over with a group of musicians who worked with classes across school – getting them to sing and move to their music!  In the afternoon, all classes shared their work – there were a number of brilliant performances (these are on School Story).  Mrs Hurst led our orchestra – children were playing – the cello, violins, flutes, recorders and the glockenspiel – it was really wonderful to watch them perform as an orchestra!  Yesterday – some of our Year 4 children went to Ilkley Trophy – to watch top tennis players playing tennis and had some coaching sessions also!  Next week – children will be going to Cober Hill for their week-long residential – busy times indeed!!
