The Brilliant Club Graduation

On Tuesday, the children who have attended Brilliant Club visited Leeds University for their Graduation ceremony. The group have worked with a PhD student from the University over the last 10 weeks on a project where they learnt about the Healthy Heart and completed a 1000 word, university style, assignment based on an investigation they carried out.  The Graduation day included a tour of the University (even a visit to the Halls of Residence); a question and answer session with several students currently studying at Leeds Uni; pizza lunch and a ceremony where every child was presented with their graduation certificate. Two children from our school, Isabel and Molly, were also chosen to speak about their experience of the Brilliant Club at the ceremony in front of over 150 people.

Musical Production Club

Our Musical Production Club performed an amazing concert tonight for their families. We were astounded by the amount of talent on the stage – singing, acting, dancing and electric guitar playing! We are very, very proud of the children.
Huge thanks to Mrs O’Hora, Mrs Murphy and Mrs Crowe for all of their time and effort that has gone into running the club and organising the show.
Have a look at the video for a small taste of what was showcased tonight.

Royal Wedding 2018

We had a wonderful day celebrating the Royal Wedding today. All of the children and staff wore red, white and blue clothes or wedding themed outfits. We began the day by singing Jerusalem in assembly.

During the afternoon we had a Royal Garden Party outside in the sunshine. We began by standing together to sing God Save The Queen.

We then enjoyed a wonderful picnic with our personalised picnic bags.

Mrs Bainbridge announced the winners of the best dressed girl, boy and member of staff.





And the winners of the Name the Teddy Competition and Hamper Raffle.





In Reception class, two chicks hatched during the day and were of course named Harry & Meghan!

We all had a really fabulous day and can’t wait to watch the Royal Wedding tomorrow!
