Congratulations to Rosie and Yutaro for their election to the school council. I’m sure they’ll do a great job.

Also, well done to all the other children who stood in the election.

TAG rugby

Posted on Thursday 24 February 2011 by Mrs Taylor

For the next half term, Year 6 will be taking part in five weeks of tag rugby coaching on Monday afternoons.  The programme has been set up by Leeds Carnegie and we are one of a small number of local schools selected to take part.

Please ensure children have their outdoor PE kit at school for these sessions.

Class Poetry

Posted on Thursday 27 January 2011 by

As you know, Year Six studying a unit of work where they are imagining they are ‘Snowbound’ in school. As part of the topic, we have been studying different writing genres.

Today the class worked together to share ideas about writing poetry.

We wrote a poem about sleeping in school that compares the noises, thoughts and fears you may have at night in school to those you may have in a jungle.

Here is our poem.

Classroom Jungle

Darkness… all around.


Wailing wind lashes windows,

Tiger-claw branches scratch.

It whispers: let me in.


Blinds are shadow makers,

Moonlight is squeezing through.

Transforming everything.


Children are snakes,

Tables are fallen trees,

Door keys are panther eyes:


Staring….. staring.


Caged animals line the walls,

Clicking and groaning.

Bat-like paper draped from the ceiling…



To pounce?



A drawer falls, eyes open, hearts pound, screams of fear,

Night is disturbed.

The classroom jungle has awoken.

A Review of Last Term

Posted on Wednesday 12 January 2011 by

Last term was very successful with lots of learning taking place in all curriculum areas and SEAL. When we asked the children what their favourite learning was, many said it was the opportunity to dress up and experience Victorian Day. The children have also enjoyed the opportunity to use the Year Six Forums on the website.

Here’s looking forward to another busy, eventful and successful half term!
