Young actors shine on professional stage

Hot on the heels of The Lion King Musical, our KS2 Drama Club gave an outstanding performance of Twelfth Night at the Shakespeare Schools Festival 2019 in central Leeds! Following four months of after-school rehearsals, they acted, danced and cartwheeled brilliantly in front of 200 paying members of the public. Well done to everyone (including parents) who helped to make it happen!

Year 4 residential

We had a brilliant (and very muddy!) residential at the award-winning Nell Bank centre in Ilkley in March. The children took part in a variety of fantastic outdoor activities, including pond-dipping, orienteering, a nature trail, den-building and a magical night walk followed by hot chocolate!

Danelaw Trip

We had a fantastic day out in September - living the life of Vikings at the Danelaw Centre for Living History, near York. Throughout the day, the children learnt to farm the land, guard their village from Anglo-Saxons, grind flour, bake bread, collect firewood, create their own pottery... and much more besides! One child commented: "I wish we could be Vikings every day!"

Year 5/6 trip to Eden Camp

Years 5 and 6 had a fantastic trip to Eden Camp in Malton for their WW2 topic. This unique modern history museum is built on the grounds of a former prisoner of war camp. The children experienced the sights, sounds and smells of life on the Home Front and the Front Line - including the Blitz, a German U-boat and a 1940s music hall.

Balanceability and Bikeability training

Children of all ages have been building confidence on two wheels - as part of their Balanceability and Bikeability training. Reception and KS1 have focussed on improving their balance, while Year 6 have developed their knowledge of road safety with professional coaches - cycling all the way to Guiseley and back!

World Book Day

Well done to children and staff for their fantastic outfits, celebrating World Book Day! The children enjoyed a day of fun book-related activities - including a parade in the hall - while some classes also visited Yeadon Library. Thank you to parents and carers for all your help with the brilliant costumes! 
 

Outdoor adventure at Herd Farm

Maple Tree Class had a fantastic residential in October at the Herd Farm outdoor activity centre. The screams and laughter were heard for miles as they tackled a variety of activities, including crate-stacking, assault course and archery!
 

Water Sports at Yeadon Tarn

Maple Tree Class have had a fantastic time enjoying their weekly water sports training at Yeadon Tarn. They have used a variety of boats and faced up to their challenges with great determination!

 

ART CLUB

Year 2 have been enjoying Art Club with Mrs Stephenson! The children in this group had fun decorating a 'Helping Hand Bag' and then presented them to teachers in their Art Club assembly. Teachers can now keep their essential equipment in one place ready to carry to other classes!

Run by our Learning Mentor after school, every child in Year 2 enjoys half a term of free classes. Children are introduced to great artists from different cultures and learn to explore different media and methods.
