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!!
