School Saving Club

Posted on Sunday 09 October 2016 by Mrs Taylor

Does your child have a School Saving Club account in association with Leeds Credit Union?

account2

If so, our next paying in date is this Thursday 13 October 3.15-3.45pm. If you can’t make this date, then the next one will be on Thursday 08 December at 3.15-3.45pm.

Children must be accompanied to the sessions.

If you can’t attend the date, you can bring money to the office in a sealed envelope marked School Saving Club for the attention of Miss Hale.

School Saving Club accounts can still be opened.  Please ask at the office for an application form.

Children who are in Year 3 will have their account credited by Leeds City Council with £10 once opened.

Class assembly 12 October

Posted on Sunday 09 October 2016 by Mrs Taylor

We are enjoying our new big topic based on the Katie and… stories, with lots of English, Maths, Science, History and of course Art learning so far.

Ask your child to tell you about the Katie books we have read so far.

  • Which is their favourite?  Why?
  • Who were the characters?
  • What were the main events?
  • What changes would they have made to the story?

We look forward to sharing the children’s learning at our class assembly this Wednesday. It’s at 2:40pm and we hope to see you then.

Scoot the Route

Posted on Thursday 29 September 2016 by Mrs Taylor

We’ve had a great response to the Scoot the Route scooter promotion this week with lots of names in the draw for one of our five prizes tomorrow.  There is one more chance tomorrow.

We’d love to see the children continue to use their scooters, alongside walking and biking to school, to prevent congestion, improve safety and have a happy, healthy and active start to the day!

Yorkshire’s Rio Heroes

Posted on Sunday 25 September 2016 by Mrs Taylor

Welcome back Yorkshire’s Olympic and Paralympic athletes with a special homecoming parade!  On Wednesday 28 September, a carnival atmosphere will take hold of Leeds as the athletes are welcomed home in true Yorkshire style.

A host of athletes have confirmed their attendance, including triathletes Alistair and Jonny Brownlee; World, European and Paralympic champion Hannah Cockroft, MBE; diver and gold medallist Jack Laugher; and rowers Andy Triggs Hodge and Paul Bennett who both claimed gold.

There will be a lively parade, with samba bands, brass bands, colourful performers and of course open top buses and vehicles carrying the athletes. Parade celebrations will start at 5.15pm, and we would love to see the people of Yorkshire come out in force to line the city centre route and cheer on these inspiring men and women.

 

 

Date for the diary

Posted on Sunday 25 September 2016 by Mrs Taylor

Looking ahead to the end of this Class Novel topic, we would like to invite you to view our own art gallery on Tuesday 15 November, in the dining room, from 2.45pm – 3.30pm.

This will be an opportunity for the children to show you some examples of their own work and other learning from our Katie and… topic.

We hope to see you there.

 

 

Katie and…

Posted on Sunday 25 September 2016 by Mrs Taylor

Our first book, from the Katie and… series, to launch our Class Novel big topic was Katie and the Dinosaurs where we found out about Katie and her antics in the Natural History Museum.

Then, before we launched into creating some of our own art, the children suggested what to test when given the following paints.  Lots of the suggestions were based around colour mixing so we tested them out.

Well done to Will who could tell us these were the primary colours.

After some mixing and experimenting with the three primary colours we focused on how to make secondary colours.

This video helped us to understand all about primary and secondary colours.
