Australia Crisis

admin on: School Blog

15th January 2020

Both children and staff are very aware of what has been happening in Australia concerning the bushfires. The School Government have come up with a fundraising idea to raise money to help all the animals that have been burned or injured. The WWF-Australia say that it has been estimated that around 1.25 billion animals have been killed across Australia to date. This includes thousands of koalas and other iconic species such as kangaroos, wallabies, kookaburras, cockatoos and honeyeaters burnt alive, and many thousands more injured and homeless. For more information visit https://www.wwf.org.au/get-involved/bushfire-emergency#gs.rrws96.

As a school, we are planning to walk the equivalent of the distance from Sydney to Canberra, which is 288 km or as close to this as possible across next week. We will be collecting donations on Friday 24th where we will see if we can fill an outline of Australia.  

We really would appreciate the support and keep your eyes peeled for updates on our school blog.

Thank you,

The School Government

Christmas Reading Bingo Challenge

admin on: School Blog

Today in assembly, all the certificates were presented to the children who participated in the Christmas Reading Challenge. It was a pleasure to announce that a total of 52 children took part and received either bronze, silver or gold certificates. Half of the 52 completed every square in the challenge and were entered into the prize draw. Miss Kelly drew Daniel Millington's name out of the hat and he received a £10 book voucher for Read in Holmfirth. Well done Daniel and thank you to everyone who had a go - it was brilliant to see the range of reading that went on during the festive season. Watch this space for an exciting Easter challenge in the coming months.

Jack and the Beanstalk

admin on: School Blog

All the children and staff were treated to an amazing performance from M&M Productions yesterday (oh yes we were!). We had lots of laughs with Jack and Jill, the evil Baron and a giant baby! The children all got into the spirit of things - singing along with all the songs and hi-fiving the actors. Thank you to FONS for helping us to bring these experiences into our school.

BBC Children in Need 2019

15th November 2019

Today, we supported Children in Need by taking part in the Big Morning Move with body coach Joe Wicks. Children came dressed in sports clothes and exercised along side Joe Wicks. We managed to raise a massive £170.46, which was counted by our Chancellor of the Exchequer! Thank you so much for your support. Look how active we have been!

We would just like to thank everyone who brought in any Aldi stickers to help us complete not one, or two but three posters! For every poster we have completed, we are going to receive some free sports equipment for our school. Our school name will also have multiple entries into the random draw, giving us a chance to win £20,000. 

Well done!

Visit from the Mayor and Mayoress

admin on: School Blog

21st October 2019

Today, we had a visit from the Mayor and Mayoress of Kirklees. They came and gave an assembly about their roles and even showed the children the mace. They had a meeting with the school government, who then gave them a tour of the school. The children asked very interesting questions during their time with us. We would like to thank them both for coming in and spending time in our school.

World Mental Health Day

admin on: School Blog

10th October 2019

Myself and the Minister of Health and Wellbing would like to thank everyone for their generosity and support today. From the sales of the yellow ribbon badges we managed to raise £42.40 all the proceeds are being donated to Young Minds. Throughout the day, every year group learnt about what mental health is and discussed this topic. In the afternoon, years 2 - 6 joined in a live lesson from the BBC by Katie Thistleton and clinical psychologist Dr Hazel Harrison.
