Year 6 Cricket at Oakworth CC

Year 5 waterworks visit

An absolutely fascinating tour of Headingly Waterworks, showing the treatment process our water goes through before it’s safe for us to use.

A Watery Week for Year 5

The Year 5 children managed to fit in not one but two trips out of school last week!

The first was to the Yorkshire Water Treatment Works at Headingley. The classes learnt about all the ‘baddies’ in water and the process undertaken at the Works to clean them out.

Closer to home, the children also took a trip down to the canal to learn about the history of a boat called ‘The Kennet‘ that is celebrating its 70th birthday this year. Volunteers told us all about how the boat was made, the history of the canal, locks and many other things. The highlight for most was seeing the cabin where the boat workers slept and ate – it was rather snug!

Year 4 Children Linking Up!

Year 4 have had a busy week linking up with the Year 4s from Heaton Primary School as part of the Schools Linking Project.  The Project helps our children learn about themselves and the lives of others – and develops their relationship skills…

Hothfield children in an artistic Tour de Force!

As a way of celebrating  the wonderful art work inspired by the incredible Tour de Yorkshire event  which took our town by storm a few weeks ago,  the Friends of Silsden Town Hall   invited Year 4 children to take part in an exciting new art project.   During the afternoon, children  had the opportunity to work alongside local artist, Shirley Schofield and learn first hand about the water colour  techniques she uses to create her fabulous paintings of cyclists in action.    The children were then able to  use what they learnt to paint their own pictures.

Thank you very much to Wendy and all the other people who helped make this event possible.
