Games! Games! Games!

Breakfast Club, and Year 5 and 6 have enjoyed two Games Days led by Imagination Gaming. The games have been challenging, competitive, and most of all fun. We have purchased a set of new games for the school, and starting next week we will have a lunchtime games clubfor Key Stage 2.

Imagination Gaming are a local company. On Saturday 5 April between 10am and 4pm, they will be holding a free Family Tabletop Games event. It is a great opportunity to spend time with the family and play games. The event will be held at the IQ Games Centre, 23 Byram Street, Huddersfield, HD1 1DR.

 If you would like any more information then please speak to Mrs Simpson.

Last week we had a living willow dome constructed in the wood. Children went to watch as the pieces of willow where shaped into what looks like a frame at the moment. The willow will, however, begin to grow and sprout leaves and the dome will get stronger and stronger. It will provide shelter on hot days and be a great bird watching hide - if the children can keep quiet long enough!  

 The children have also been building insect hotels and we need your help! If you have any left over drain pipes, water pipes, garden canes or tubing that can be used for insect homes we could really do with it. If you have, then drop it off

at school and we will give a bug a home!

Once again we have been treated to a wealth of creativity with our decorated eggs and hats. The eggs have been exhibited in the hall and children have been commenting on their favourites. Here are just a few to give you a picture. Thanks to everyone who took part and to you for your support at home.


These were some of the characters we watched as pupils and parents were treated to an amaaaazing performance from the Drama Club with their play Cinderella`s Got Talent. A cross between Britain`s Got Talent, The X Factor and Cinderella it told the tale of how a disguised Cinderella competed against her stepsisters in a talent competition to win a night out with Prince Harry. The cast have been rehearsing all term for this show with Miss McKirgan and Mrs Hutchinson who wrote the play. Well done to everyone who took part. We certainly have some talented children at Cross Lane.

Easter Origami

The children who attended the Easter Origami arts and crafts events over the last 3 weeks have had an eggstremely busy time. They have been busy making origami baskets, chicks, paper daffodils, designing symmetrical egg patterns on the computer and decorating Easter eggs. A big thank you to Sarah Luckman and her assistants Kiera and Megan for their eggcellent help, advice and enthusiasm. Remember to get crafty in the Easter holidays!

We close today for our Easter break, reopening our doors at 8:50am on M!onday 28 April. When we should have our own Easter chicks in school.
