Excellent Elmer

Elmer the elephant has proved extremely popular in EYFS 2. The children have accessed lots and lots of work in so many subjects to share their skills and it’s all based around the colourful elephant! Well done everyone, some beautiful pieces. We can all see just how much progress you are making every single day.

The Mountain Rescue Team

What an amazing morning! Members of the Mountain Rescue Team (including Mr. Knox – yes her Dad!) visited and let us all explore their Land Rover Ambulance. The siren was really loud! We all went into the hall and practised how to rescue any casualties. We had to work together in our teams to carry a patient around. We also tried to keep warm using a huge tent! Later in the morning, we were given the opportunity to try some of the equipment after playing the game, ‘guess what’s in the rucksack.’ Thank you, Woodhead Mountain Rescue Team. What a fantastic group of volunteers you are.

National Stars of Dance

We are delighted – and extremely proud – to display our two National Dancing Stars. After qualifying for the National Championships via the North West regional event, they attended the contest at Norbreck Castle in Blackpool. From Year 5, our dancing star competed against children up to two years her senior and achieved a wonderful 6th place in the national standings! This was in Classical and Modern Sequence. A fabulous achievement. From Year 2, competing in the same disciplines at her younger age group, our superstar became International Dance Teachers Association National Champion! We are delighted to share these outstanding achievements and could not be any prouder. What an amazing weekend for the girls and their lovely family.

Happy Halloween!

What a fantastic day we all had on Thursday! Together with Y4 and some Y6 children, we took part in some spooky Halloween activities. We started off the day with a game of hide and seek. All of the ghosts and ghouls had to search for the children that were hiding around the school. One clever Y4 boy managed to escape from all of the spooky characters searching for him! Our next activity was the Haunted Catwalk. We took it in turns to creep our way towards the judges – the scariest moves won a prize! A famous spooky dance completed this activity which we all really enjoyed. Following this, Year 5 took part in some maths activities and later in the day we dished out the popcorn and settled down to a spooky film. To end our Halloween day, we attended an amazing disco that our wonderful PTA had arranged for us.

Year 2 Orienteering Stars

We worked together as a team to try our hand at orienteering. We had to find different check points around the school grounds using an aerial photograph of the school. Teamwork was key as we all had different roles to play in locating the different places on the photograph.  We used our knowledge of physical features that we recognised, to locate the cards.  We needed to collect six different cards showing places within Yorkshire to complete the event.
