This Friday it’s Pudsey Bear Day AKA Children in Needs. Everyone came in yellow or spots if they had brought a donation. Not everybody did but that is fine. We do it every year to celebrate when Joanna Ball made the first event called the children hour in 1985.
Today was a fun, exciting day and hopefully everyone enjoyed it. It is certainly one of the best days of the school year. We are sure we will have raised lots of money for a good cause and hope we continue to keep up the tradition of raising money.

This week has been a very upsetting one because our fantastic PE teacher, Miss Dobson, is leaving!
Since she came here, she has been doing clubs, multi sports, competitions, PE, and been swimming with last year’s Year 4. Miss Dobson joined Year 6 on their adventures at Robin Wood last year.
She’s being leading these activities for one and a half years and now sadly she is leaving to get a different job, in Leeds,which hopefully she will enjoy and thrive in.
We have loved having Miss Dobson make our PE lessons so fun and action packed. She is funny and has really helped us become more confident.
Good Luck Miss Dobson!

On Tuesday the 15th we had an exciting neon disco that was organised by our PTFA. There were sweets, hot dogs, refreshments, flashing lights, and lots more!
First , it was Key Stage 1 from 5.00 to 6.00 then it was Key Stage 2 which was from 6.15 to 7.15. It was two pounds entry and we had lots of fun with dancing, singing and flashing disco lights. In Key Stage 2 we could buy friend ship bracelets, neon glasses, flashing fruit rings , flashing finger lights and lots of other things. Everyone looked funny wearing their neon accessories while they danced.
We had lots of fun dancing and singing with our friends in our bright clothes. We enjoyed it so much we can not wait for the next one!

On Tuesday, Year one went on a fantastic trip to the Bradford Industrial museum. This trip started of with the section Jowett cars, where they looked at the first ever Jowett car to be made. They also got a chance to see the first Bradford van that was used to deliver the daily newspaper.
Secondly, Year 1 went to see the textile industry where they saw how the Victorians made clothes out of wool. This helped them to understand how the Victorians provided themselves with clothes.
Thirdly, they experienced how the Victorians used the printing machine of their day to print the daily newspaper. This was extremely different to what we use now in modern day.
Later on, they took a look at how workers and mill owners lived back then. Their houses were also different to modern day. These houses were made out of brick and stone, which is different to how they build them now.
Finally, they learnt how to wash clothes with a pillar designed by the victorious . They all got to take part in this event. It sounds like a great day and I am sure they had a brilliant time.

On Wednesday, Year 2 went to the church in Idle where they met Mr and Mrs Frowd. Firstly, they read the Bible but they had to wear white gloves. They then looked at other things that are precious to Christians like the thorn crown and wine glasses.
After that, the children got a little rest before learning about new things. They first got told to sit on the floor and listen very carefully before the person started telling a story about Mary Jones. She wanted a bible but she couldn’t because there were non in welsh. So she walked 25 miles just to get a bible in welsh. She was also saving money for 6 whole YEARS!
It sounded like a fascinating trip and we’re sure Year 2 had a great time!

On Tuesday afternoon the whole school had a nice surprise – Mr Froud came and sang some songs. The whole school loved him and clapped along at some of the songs and even joined in at the actions. All of the reception children loved him because they laughed along with everyone and to be honest they all laughed the most! Every teacher who was there clapped along and had good fun too. Also the teachers adored the younger ones laughing.Thank you Mr Froud we look forward to seeing Mr Froud again.
