A day in the life of a paramedic
Thank you to Richard (Indi’s dad) for talking to Year 1 and 2 about his job as a paramedic. We learned lots and were even able to try out some of the equipment!
It was lovely to meet you all properly at Parents’ Evening. Thank you for taking a strong interest in your child’s learning. Many parents were keen to help even more at home. I hope the handwriting example has been helpful. Examples of what your child is expected to know by the end of Year 2 will be sent home shortly. Also, thank you for coming to see our assembly. I know the children loved showing you all what they have learned.
As you know, Year 1 and Year 2 went to Eureka museum in Halifax on Tuesday 15 November. The main focus of our day was in the learning area known as “Me and My Body.” Our learning included the way our mouths work, how fast we breathe and how our skeletons move.
What a tiring day…
…just time for a snooze on the way home.
It is not only children who are involved in learning. On Tuesday, all of the teaching staff were involved in a Art workshop and some super sculptures were produced.
Check out the new member of our school community, Sebastian.
Mrs Burke, Mrs Weekes, Mrs Maver and Miss Hewson worked together to sculpt using newspaper and modrock and this is the result.
Look out for him in the middle building.
… Thursday 10th November!
It’s our class assembly. We look forward to seeing you there at 2.40.
Hobby Half Day
Check out our fantastic photos of our first Hobby Half Day!
Children from Year 1 to Year 6 had the opportunity to participate in an afternoon of learning something new. The activities ranged from everyday baking and cooking to the unusual: creating their own carbon footprint.
Staying safe around dogs
You’ll know that as a school, we monitor attendance closely. Last year, we met our attendance targets, which is great news.
The attendance record for your child’s class – last year’s Y1 class – was broadly the same as Leeds overall, but there were two areas we’d like to improve this year:
- the class’s attendance was lower than other schools of a similar nature,
- the amount of unauthorised absence was significantly higher than similar schools, and even higher than Leeds overall – sadly, this was caused by a few individuals taking term-time holidays.
Please keep an eye on your child’s attendance. Research shows that too many absences affect not only learning but a child’s social and emotional aspects of learning.
