This week we have had a series of Tour de France activities taking place
in school with baking
and making as well as
research by the older children. Nursery, in particular, had a fabulous time taking part in our mini Tour de France morning. The children raced against each other on their bikes in a knock out tournament leading to a grand final. Congratulations to Harvey Robinson our winner, Max Okezie who came second and Ezrah Wooding who was third. !
Sunday is the big day and we hope all the children will get some chance to be part of this once in a lifetime event
Cross Lane Rocks 2015 was a showcase of the future of pop music. Fourteen excellent songs were performed live on stage and the winning song (with the loudest and longest cheer) was The Worst Child performed by The Little Naughtys. The Hall was packed with over fifty visitors and the school went wild. Thanks must go to Mr E for working with the children on the songs and doing such a brilliant job with them. A CD will be available of all the songs in May.
Some of the songs will be entered into the national Young Songwriter’s Competition which will be judged by the likes of Tom Odell and Naughty Boy. We will keep you posted on progress.
Once again we have had a brilliant response to both our decorated egg and hat challenge. Below are some of the wackiest creations.
We reopen on Monday 13 April. Have a good break!
We are really working hard in school to promote the children’s love and enjoyment of reading. Following on from our reading questionnaires, workshops and World Book Day activities we are now running a reading photograph competition. The idea is to send into school a photograph of your child reading in an unusual place. The more imaginative the better! There will be prizes for the best photographs from each key stage, so get snapping! The deadline for photographs is Friday 17th April.
We have to say a huge ‘well done’ to our choir for last Friday’s performance at the Elland Rotary Choir Festival. The choir opened the evening (never the best spot to have) but set it alight with their performance of Doe A Deer, I’d Do Anything and a mash up of Swing Low Sweet Chariot, When The Saints, I’m Going To Sing and This Train. Every choir performed really well and it was a great celebration of music in our cluster. Thank you to everyone who came along.
The choir will continue with Mrs Brown on Monday evenings after Easter with plans to have an evening of music later in the year along with guitars, rock bands and possibly some rock and roll!
All the chaos of this week has not got in the way of other things happening and yesterday the drama club put on its annual show for both the school and the parents. It was a great performance once again. All credit to the children and to Mrs Hutchinson, Miss Isles and Miss McKirgan who have been producers and directors this year.
