Year 6 – Crucial Crew

Y6 visited the Lifewise Centre today to participate in the Crucial Crew programme. The Lifewise Centre provides the children with essential knowledge and skills to be able to keep safe in the local community.

Some of the different scenarios included road safety, transport safety, fire safety and a mock trial in a Magistrates’ Court! All of the scenarios are taught by volunteering experts from South Yorkshire Police, South Yorkshire Fire and Rescue and the South Yorkshire Safer Roads Partnership.

The children participated in all of the scenarios showing real maturity and thoughtfulness. Check out the slide show below.

Supporting Motor Neurone Disease Day 2024

Jake, in Year 6, approached the school and his crew with wanting raise awareness around MND. Being a big fan of Leeds Rhinos, he has been inspired by Rob Burrows’ bravery and the superb effort of his ex-team mate, Kevin Sinfield. As a crew, we have planned a MND day for Friday 19th April for the whole school.

We are encouraging all children to wear something white, yellow or blue for a small donation that will go directly to the MND association.

Spectacular Spoons!

I can’t believe the amount of wonderful character spoons we had fetched into school as part of our World Book Day competition! The creativity and effort that has gone into each and every one is amazing!

The Learning Council judged the spoons this morning but it was such a hard choice that we have ended up with 8 winners instead of 4!

Watch this space to see the winning spoons tomorrow …

Here are just some of the fabulous characters!

Year 6 Learning Club

In Year 6 we don’t let a busy morning of 2 maths SATs papers and an afternoon of writing stop us – we power on and show exceptional HOWLs at learning club too. Mrs Rafferty and I were blown away with the hard work and dedication of the group of children that stayed after school yesterday to practice their maths reasoning skills ready for this morning’s final maths assessment. Well done guys – you are awesome!
