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
The window is open for ordering new uniform for after half term. Could all orders be in by 30 January? Order forms are available from the website and the office.
Over the Christmas break our Library was transformed! New furniture was fitted and the books have now been rearranged. It is a place for children to be quiet, enjoy reading and study books. We do, however, have a lot of empty shelves as the books have been ‘pruned’ to leave only the best ones. We will now begin re-stocking with lots of lovely new books that the children will help to choose. The final touches will be new tables and an interactive board and projector which we will have to wait a few weeks for.
Lee Ambler from Halifax RLFC came into assembly on Monday to talk about his time as a player and a project that we can be part of going into the summer.
As an Elland lad himself, it was ispirational to hear how he set about achieving his dream of becominga professional and he encouraged all the children to 'follow their dreams'.
It may have caused chaos on Wednesday but ther's no denying how much fun we had in the snow!
Following last night's Governors meeting we are pleased to announce the appointment of a new community governor, Mr Jonathan Longstaff. Jonathan is a former headteacher and lives local to the school he also has grandchildren here so is keen to see the school make further progress. Welcome aboard!
