Leos Junior Rugby Club are hosting a girls only training session, open to all girls in Reception to Year 6, on Sunday 28th November, with the aim of setting up a girls only rugby team in the area. Please see below for more information.
Cross country results
The results have been checked and we are very pleased to announce that following the Leeds North East Cross Country Festival last week, Ewan (2nd – Year 5 boys) and Ralph (5th – Year 4 boys) are successfully through to the Leeds Cross Country Finals. What a great achievement to match their brilliant performances.
Commiserations to Billy (11th – Year 6 boys race), Zaid (20th – Year 6 boys race), Edris (15th – Year 6 girls race), William (12th – Year 3 boys race) and Zak (17th – Year 3 boys race) who narrowly missed out on qualifying.
Cross country stars
What a great few days of cross country action! On Friday, twenty four Key Stage 2 children took part in the North East School Games Cross Country festival. It was great to be back competing after such a long break.
All the children put in 100% effort and we had some fantastic results which will hopefully mean a number of children will qualify for the Leeds finals once we hear the final results.
Thank you to parents who helped to accompany the children, to Allerton Grange for transporting us and lastly to all the children who competed so well and supported and encouraged each other.
I really enjoyed it.
I just enjoy running.
It was my first time but I just kept going.
It was tough but once I’d done it I felt like I’d achieved something.
It was really fun. It didn’t really matter where you came. You just tried your best.
On Saturday, a number of children took part in the Leeds Schools Athletics Association cross country race at Prince Henry’s, Otley. Well done to all children who took part and represented to school. Once again, it was great to hear about the team spirit and support for each other.
Living and Learning: Anti-bullying week
In this week’s living and learning session, we spoke about what bullying is and what we can do to prevent or stop it happening.
“Bullying is when you hurt someone physically or emotionally several times on purpose.”
We use the following acronyms to remember what bullying means and what to do if we know bullying is happening:
S – several
T – times
O – on
P – purpose
S – start
T – telling
O – other
P – people
If bullying is happening to us, someone we know, or if we have seen or heard it happening to anyone, we must tell a teacher or a trusted adult.
Ask your child at home to tell what you what they should do if they are aware of any bullying!
Exploring the colour wheel
In this week’s art lesson, we explored the colour wheel.
We were confidently able to identify the three primary colours and the three secondary colours they make when mixed together!
Primary colours: red, yellow and blue
Quiz your child at home to see if they can remember our learning!
In a recent art session, we looked at artwork by one of our featured artists: Martha McDonald Napaltjarri.
We closely observed the pattern within each piece of art and discussed what we could see.
We then explored our own patterns inspired by Napaltjarri and here’s some of our work.
Odd socks day
Next week is Anti-Bullying Week.
This year’s theme is ‘One Kind Word’ and we will be taking part in Odd Socks Day on Monday 15 November.
Odd socks day is to raise awareness of our differences, individuality and personal choice. Come to school wearing your odd socks to celebrate what makes us all unique.
Thank you for your support.
We are pleased to invite KS2 children to compete in an upcoming cross country race as part of the Leeds Schools Athletics Association cross country programme of Saturday morning races. Children will compete against pupils from other Leeds schools.

We look forward to pupils representing our school at this event.
