Youth Voice Summit

Posted on Wednesday 11 July 2018 by Mrs Taylor

Recently, our Year 5 and 6 school councillors attended the third annual youth voice summit for primary schools in the banqueting suite at Leeds Civic Hall. During the event, the children:

  • Learnt how to run effective social action campaigns in their schools and communities
  • Learnt about influential historical and current campaigns such as the suffragettes and American civil rights
  • Learnt about how to write to the government and local council
  • Had the opportunity to come up with their own campaigns and create placards
  • Had a full tour of the Leeds Council Chamber

Their chosen campaign, to work on back at school with the rest of the school council, is all about clearing up litter.  We look forward to seeing how this campaign will develop.

Brownlee Centre

Posted on Thursday 05 July 2018 by Mrs Taylor

Earlier this week, a group of upper Key Stage 2 children had the opportunity to attend the schools Tour de Yorkshire celebration event at the Brownlee Centre.

The structured coaching session involved different cycling skills activities and was a great chance for the pupils to test out the cycle circuit.

As a result of the positive feedback from the children, we hope to participate in future events at the circuit.

The next pop-up ride at the centre is this weekend, Sunday 08 July 12:00pm – register to take part using the Let’s Ride website.

Sports day 2018

Posted on Wednesday 04 July 2018 by Mrs Taylor

Yesterday, the whole school enjoyed a sun soaked sports day at Roundhegians.  Well done to all the children who took part and demonstrated School Games values of passion, self-belief, respect, honesty, teamwork and determination.  We believe that sports day is an ideal context for children to explore these values.  For example, learning how to handle success and defeat, believing in their abilities, respecting others and working with others to achieve success.

Special thanks go to:

  • Roundhegians for providing excellent facilities and hosting our sports day
  • Excellent sports leaders from Allerton Grange who ran the field events for Key Stage 2 and supported the younger children with their races in the afternoon
  • PTA for providing refreshments for spectators
  • parents who supplied and assembled gazebos to keep the children in shade at the event
  • Year 5 sports leaders and Year 2 helpers too
  • All staff who helped out on the day

Health fair

Posted on Wednesday 04 July 2018 by Mrs Taylor

Thank you to all parents, carers and pupils who came along to our first health fair at the start of our Being Healthy themed week.  Our goal was to promote the many great organisations that are in our community and to raise awareness amongst parents, carers and children about the range of activities and health opportunities available to them locally.

We hope that parents, carers and children will build on the contacts made at the fair.

A big thank you to all the organisations who attended.

It was great to see more children buying skipping ropes -hopefully to practise their skipping challenge at home.

Skipping ropes will be available for sale next Monday and Tuesday after school, outside the Year 2 classroom, for a subsidised price of £2.

Look out for a guide to local physical activity opportunities coming home in book bags soon.
