Cross Country Competition

At the start of the Autumn term we held a cross country competition for children in Years 3, 4, 5 and 6 and the first five boys and girls in each year were entered into a competition against local schools.

Well done!

Fin Canning and his mum, Ally we’re out doing a good turn before Christmas. They braved the elements to help raise money for our local, Halifax, Marie Curie fundraising group.
This in turn enables Marie Curie nurses to visit people at home in their time of need. The group were very grateful for all of their help. Maybe you could do something for charity this year?

Reception Class

Last week Reception Class looked at the story, The Gruffalo’s Child. “Later in the week The Gruffalo left us a note to explain that she had left her toy, Stickman, at school for us. The children then went on a stick hunt to find our own stick and then we chose what we wanted to do with our stick. Some of us made our own stickman/sticklady, some of us
played imaginative games, some of us played in the water and the sand and some of us even went to the playdough. We all had so much fun, choosing what we wanted to do with our sticks!” – Mrs Annettes, Reception Class Teacher
