Years 3 and 4 have been busy building roundhouses today as part of their project on Romans and Celts. To help with the construction we were joined by our friends Julie Swift and Chris Sutcliffe from Calderdale Countryside Service. The final buildings were great as you can see but maybe not up to 21st century building regulations! Many thanks to the PFA for their contribution towards the cost of the day.
The fun continued back in the classroom with more Roman art activities. It was a thoroughly good day for all.
Children from KS1 had a marvellous day on Monday with Paul from Rhythmbridge. As part of their topic on Africa, Paul introduced them to many different types of African drums and songs. At an assembly in the morning it was amazing how much the older children remembered from his last visit so we’re sure this will live long in the memory too.
Well, the weather’s doing its best to stop our tree planting but we finally got the first of our fruit trees into the ground this week. The PFA have funded the trees which have been adopted by each class. Later we will be planting fruit and vegetables in our class planters so expect some green fingers at home, too.
The performance of Beauty and the Beast was a real success. The actors from M&M Theatre took the children on a magical journey through slapstick, dancing, singing and drama in over 90 minutes of entertainment.!
Many children have been doing follow-up work on the play and we hope to have a display of this very soon.
We open the school doors to children at 8:50am and ask that children do not arrive in school before 8:40am. We have been alerted to the fact that some of the older children are not coming directly into school but are congregating on Cross Lane or surrounding streets. We have been out to gather up those we can see but it is an issue that we felt you needed to be aware of. Your child should be leaving home and coming directly to school. Whilst they are outside the school grounds their safety cannot be guaranteed. It would help if all parents whose children come to school by themselves reinforce the importance of coming straight into the grounds. We want to keep everyone safe.!
The school closeson Thursday 20 February for Half Term. We reopen on Monday 3 March at the usual time. Have a great half term break!
