RD assembly

On Friday, the 13th of March, RD performed an amazing assembly all about the Gruffalo and what they have been doing since the start of the school year.

Firstly, a couple children stood up and said what they have been doing since the first day of the year. A couple of children showed an example of their maths and English. In maths a volunteer called Isla counted up and down to twenty amazingly. Then another volunteer wrote fox on the white board.

After that, everyone did an amazing job of a Gruffalo performance that everyone loved. The mouse especially did a great job for remembering all of his words. Everyone did an amazing job!

Easter Egg Appeal

This Year, we are once again taking part in the Easter egg appeal for the eighth year.

The appeal is for less fortunate children around Bradford. At our school, we try and help them as much as we can to either raise money or give up something for others .In past years, we have collected over a hundred eggs.WOW. It is such a fantastic effort!

We always get informed by an assembly with Mr CL that every one enjoys because we always enjoy helping others and being kind. We cannot wait to see how many we bring in. Hopefully, we beat last year’s record!

Mr Patterson’s Assembly

Today, at the end of the day, Mr Patterson did an assembly focusing on good sportsmanship. He started with one game and ended with three games. There was a lot of screaming and clapping and now we will tell you how the games went.

The first game was when he asked several teachers to stand up and he gave them two pence. Then he told them to flip the coin and whoever got heads had to sit down. After all that, we finally found a winner which was Mrs Pringle and she got to keep the pence.

After that, he told Eesa to come up and try to catch a piece of paper when he dropped it for five house points. On his last try, he finally got it and calmly went and sat down. Mr Patterson thought that it was great of him to not go crazy about him winning. All contestants did very well and had a lot of fun.

On Wednesday, all the pupils in school met their brand new teachers!

Reception got either Mrs Wardell or Miss Gardener. Year 1 discovered it would be either Mrs Scott or Mrs Pinder. Year 2 got Mr Rhodes or Mrs Roberts. Year 3 got Mr Hodges or Miss Philips. Year 4 got Mrs Hall until Miss Javed comes back or Miss Lancaster. Year 5 got Mr Sidebottom until Miss Russell comes back or Mrs Gould.

On the same day, Year 6 went to their secondary schools. They spent a whole day there while we spent 45 minutes talking about: what we do, what we’re excited about and some classes also did some activities to get ready for next year.

We’re all looking forward to starting with our brand new teachers next year.

School Disco

On Tuesday, the PTFA organised another amazing school disco. It started by all of the pupils gathering in the hall to dance to all their favourite songs. While you were there, there was a store where you could buy things from. Children could get: hot dogs, sweets, drinks, glitter, tattoos, bracelets and slap bands. We had an amazing DJ who played all of the classic songs, including Old Town Road, as well as starting a dance off which was great fun. Overall we had an amazing disco and a big thank you to the PTFA for organising the event. We certainly cannot wait until the next one!

Drumming concert

On the 28th of March, some brave pupils performed in-front of the whole school some amazing drumming. They have been having lessons for 20 minutes in the previous weeks leading into this day.

Starting the assembly off, Mrs Scott introduced the assembly and what they would be doing throughout. It started with Elana (who is in 4h) and Amber playing a warm up solo which was followed by some brave Year 2 children who performed the backing track from a song by Taylor swift. After that Elijah, played a solo with the two teachers. Other children from across school also performed which was equally fantastic.

The lady in charge explained frequently the benefits of drumming and how they can link to the classroom. One of them was that drumming improves concentration as you have to focus on what you are doing and ignore distractions. At the end of the assembly, everyone clapped loudly as they all greatly enjoyed it.

Thankfully, we learnt that the drumming sessions are going to continue after the holidays and everybody is hoping they are the next child to get a go!
