Tuesday 1st May - Visit to RERF (Recycling and Energy Recovery Facility)

What a fascinating building the RERF is! The children had a very informative visit finding out about how Leeds deals with the waste created by its residents and it is aiming to be a zero waste city. Our visit will be the stimulus for lots of work in class so keeping asking your children about it. 


Friday 9th March

We really enjoyed our rescheduled World Book Day today. Our focus was the fabulous book 'How to Train your Dragon' by Cressida Cowell, we thought about designing our own dragon and what it would be like to meet it for the first time. The children were really enthusiastic about the 'Drop Everything and Read!' sessions, listening eagerly for the bell so they could delve back into their books!


Tuesday 20th February

We would like to announce the winner of our Reading Challenge from last half term. Well done Lewis! Proud picture coming soon...


Please check your child's planner for their Reading Eggs password which will be sent home this week. We have re-assessed starting points and pupils will be allocated reading homework on the site each week.


Wednesday 7th February

Victorian Mining Class Assembly

We celebrated our Victorian Mining topic with our parents - we were keen to share all that we had learned on our visit to the National Coal Mining Museum and in school. All the children showed great courage to speak in front of the adults. 



Here are a selection of learning photographs from last half term.
