Junior snooker summer holiday club programme

Posted on Wednesday 17 July 2019 by Mrs Taylor

Northern Snooker Centre will be running six sessions to introduce snooker and billiards to young people aged 10-16 this summer holiday, coordinated by a WPBSA World Snooker Coach.

These fun and engaging group sessions are aimed at new players, as part of a new national programme funded by Sport England. Each session costs only £1 to attend.

The club is a member of the national club scheme, which means it meets the governing body standards of safeguarding and equality, as well as adopting a Code of Conduct to ensure the right setup for juniors, overseen
by a Club Welfare Officer.

This is a fantastic opportunity to try an inclusive sport in an exciting and dynamic environment.

Great fun bowling

Last night, Year 6 had a lovely time bowling. Thank you for dropping them off and picking them up promptly!

Enterprising times

Posted on Wednesday 17 July 2019 by Miss Rushbrooke

This week, as you may have noticed, Year 6 have been out in the playground after school raising money for the school charity and to contribute towards their leavers’ hoodies.

They’ve thoroughly enjoyed coming up with stalls to run and have had a great time working with customers. Our last day is today so come along and try out a stall you haven’t had a go at yet or just treat yourself to another ice cream!

Love of Reading

We love reading in Year Six and Year Three. Today we had a shared Love of Reading session outside in the sunshine. Here are some pictures. 

School Savings Club paying in session

Posted on Sunday 07 July 2019 by Mrs Taylor

The next School Saving Club paying in date is 10 July 2019 at 3.15-3.45pm.

If your child opened an account in our Money Matters themed week, this would be a great chance to start their saving journey.

If you’re unable to attend in person, please hand in any money to be deposited to the office in a sealed envelope addressed to Mrs Tiffany.

This is the final paying in date for this year and dates for next year will be shared in September.

If your child would like to open an account, please ask at the office.

Residential… finally!

Posted on Sunday 07 July 2019 by Miss Rushbrooke

After much editing, emailing and formating, I finally bring you a taste of what your children experienced on residential. Apologies for the delay! Year 6 had a great time and were a credit to the school, you and to themselves. Many members of staff at Robin Wood remarked upon their manners a number times.

We did all sorts over the three days and here’s an idea of what it was like.

Sports day 4th July

Posted on Wednesday 03 July 2019 by Mrs Taylor

We are looking forward to welcoming you to our annual sports day tomorrow. Here is some information about the day.


Our sports day will take place offsite at Roundhegians Rugby Club (LS8 2AT).  Access to the club is off Chelwood Drive and there is some parking available. Children will be walking to the field, escorted by adults. Thank you to those parents/carers who have offered to help with this. We will be leaving school at 9:05am for KS2 and 1:05pm for Reception and KS1.


The Key Stage 2 Sports Day will begin at 9.30am ending at approximately 11:30am and the Reception and Key Stage 1 sports day will start at 1.30pm ending at approximately 3 pm.

Normal lunch time and end of school collection arrangements will still apply on this day.

PE kit

Our teams will be: green, blue, white and red and your child/children has been told their team colour by their class teacher. If possible, please could your child wear a t-shirt to match their team colour. If your child does not have a coloured t-shirt, they should wear their white PE top and they will be given a bib to wear.

Children should come to school in their PE kit to be worn for the whole day.

On the day

Please could you ensure your child has their water bottle and a cap/hat at school; it would also be useful if you could apply sun cream before your child comes to school.


The format of this year’s event will be competitive races and field events (KS2) with children having the opportunity to compete for medals. These will be awarded by staff and sports leaders from Allerton Grange, who will be placed on the finish line. No VAR this year, unfortunately!  However, all children will be rewarded for taking part.

We expect each child to take part in at least two events. Some may take part in more depending on how many children are in their team. As far as is possible, we have tried to place children in events of their choice.


No seating is provided so please bring a rug or your own chairs if you come to spectate.


Thank you to those parents/carers who are able to bring gazebos on the day. Any additional gazebos would be welcome, to shade the children, if you can help with this.


The PTA will be selling refreshments for parents and carers on the day.


You are welcome to take photos on the day. These should be for your own use and as we have children in school who cannot be photographed please do not share these photos on social media.


For safety reasons, please do not cross the track to where the children are seated – thank you.

Living and Learning: healthy choices

Posted on Monday 01 July 2019 by Miss Rushbrooke

This week, we’re focusing on healthy choices – this could relate to maintaining good mental or physical health.

I can make healthy choices.

Can you encourage your child to make a new healthy choice every day this week? Or think about one new healthy change your child can make? Try to help them by making sure the choice is a realistic, achievable one, such as avoiding being on an electronic device after a certain time to help sleep, or adding one extra daily portion of vegetables to their diet each day.

Living and Learning: relationships

Posted on Monday 01 July 2019 by Miss Rushbrooke

In Living and Learning, Year 6 have been discussing relationships. Here are the statements we’ve been discussing each week:
  • I see things from other people’s points of view.
  • I know the difference between laughing at and laughing with someone.
  • I tell the truth and say sorry if I need to.
As well as this, Year 6 have recapped their learning from Year 5 on Relationships and Sex Education. This was a useful session to iron out any misconceptions the children had and allow them the opportunity to ask any questions – of which there were many!

Showcase of skipping skills

Posted on Wednesday 26 June 2019 by Mrs Taylor

Thank you to all parents, carers and family who came along to see the fantastic skipping skills on display at our recent skipping assembly.

Jodi, from Skipping School, provided skipping sessions for Reception class, Year 1, Year 3, Year 5 and Year 6 throughout the day and it was great to see all the new skills learnt. Year 2 and Year 4 have already been involved in their skipping projects this year and have taken part in festivals representing the school.

Skipping is one of the ways we encourage the children to achieve their 30 active minutes at school by providing short and long ropes at playtime and lunchtime.

If you didn’t get chance to buy a skipping rope after the assembly, we do have some available for sale.  Please come to the Year 2 classroom on Monday or Tuesday, after school, if you would like to purchase one.
