Kestrel’s Favourite Activity

What was your favourite actvity of our busy and enjoyable curriculum festival?

Bradford Bound!

We’re well on our way back to Bradford. We’ve been fortunate enough to have had lovely weather. Big thanks to all the staff for making the trip possible.

It’s been a tiring day. A little bit too much for some people.

More pictures to follow…

Whitby Bound

We are on our way to Whitby, exciting!

What are you looking forward to doing the most?

Tour de France Assembly

Today Year 5 Mole and Hedgehog spent all day rehearsing for their Tour de France play in front of the whole school!

It was really successful and even the teachers learned some new facts. Take a peek at the pictures.

There was even an opportunity for Year 5 to show off their dance moves!

We learnt lots of new facts about the Tour de France today. What facts do you know? Post them below.

Tour de Force

Over the weekend some of our children went to Hawes to cheer on the cyclists taking part in the Tour de Force. This included Charlie Webster from Sky Sports who had visited the Academy earlier in the week.

As you can see below it was a lot of hard work for the cyclists. They needed plenty of bananas to keep their energy levels high so they could meet the demands of the course.

Hopefully this trip may inspire some of our youngsters to take up cycling and who knows, we may well produce some future stars!

A Special Visitor

Woodside was fortunate enough today to have Sky Sports’ very own Charlie Webster visit the Academy today. She looked all around the school in particular the amazing banners that pupils in Year 4 were making.

In addition, a reporter from from BBC Radio Leeds came in to interview two school council reps and Mrs Poole about the Tour De France as well as the exciting cycling future in the Academy.

The train journey back

A few exhausted faces, but we are still really enjoying our trip!

Nile’s Holiday Highlights

I looked up things about London but I’ve never seen them in real life. These were my favourite things:

1. Beating Mr Grayson at bowling

2. 4D experience

3. London eye

Beating Mr Grayson was my favourite because he thought he would win and I proved Mr Grayson wrong.

The 4D experience was my second favourite because you could feel the weather changing and see everything in 3D. I felt as if I was touching the seagull.

Finally, the London Eye was my third favourite because I am a bit scared of heights and you had a spectacular view.
