Yesterday,the whole school had a penalty shoot out outside of the dining room. The penalty shootout was lead by Bradford City F.C and we managed to raise lots of money for charity and school.People who tried to raise money got to take four penalty’s against the chicken Billy Bantam from Bradford city and people who didn’t raise any money still got a chance to take a penalty at the end of the shootout. At the end of the shoot out of course no-one wanted to be left out so the teachers had a shot at Billy Bantam too! if you are wondering if you raise at least £3 you will get a medal and if you raise £20 or over you will get your a self a Bradford city football and maybe a medal! But the best… if you raise the most money out of the whole shootout you will get a unique Bradford City F.C football signed by Bradford city footballers!thnk you for putting in the effort to raise money and we are very grateful for your conturbiton to our fund today. The charity’s and our school are very delighted with all the money raised today and soon we may edit this post to tell you the grand total of money raised yesterday! We are all looking forward till we get our prizes.
The children in Key Stage One are really enjoying their trips to the Sculpture Park this week. They have spent time looking at the Henry Moore pieces as well as some of the more modern sculptures hidden around the beautiful park. During the day they have enjoyed doing their own sketches and taking photographs. As we walked around the site, the children collected pieces of natural resources to construct their own amazing sculptures.
Back at school, some of children who went on Tuesday have already begun to recreate their designs using clay.
I think all the staff and children will agree that this has been a wonderful trip which has built upon the work they have already been doing about Henry Moore and the skills involved in sculpting with a range of materials.
All children and staff attended our Easter Worship yesterday some Governors also visiting too. Our recorder club started our worship by performing Peace Perfect Peace. Despite their stage fright they impressed everyone with their first performance.
We sang a number of songs including Servant King and Hurray for Jesus. Everyone was given their palm cross and held them carefully during our Easter prayers. Some of our Year 6 children had prepared their own video version to accompany the hymn See What a Morning.
As the children left the hall they were also given an Easter Egg treat!
Year 1 children had a very interesting day when the Police came to visit them in Year 1. They thought about how their register time was similar to the Police morning briefing session and learnt about how we each have a unique finger print. The children were even allowed to use the Police radios and put on some of Police Officer Steve’s uniform!
PCSO Steve was particularly concerned about the reports about the missing robot from the Year 1 classroom. He took some statements about everything the children knew and asked for a photo fit to help him find it. He has been able to put a poster up in the Police Station and at the morning briefing the following day his fellow Police Officers were also briefed about its disappearance.
Sadly this hasn’t resulted in the robot’s safe return yet. If you see the robot, please let someone in Year 1 know where it is!
