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!!
