Kate and Sophie made a pyramid house of all the pets that belong in their extended family!
The whole school enjoyed a lovely harvest service. We all came together as a school to sing harvest songs and celebrate and be thankful for all the lovely food we have. Rev Ruth Crompton led the service and was extremely complimentary of the children’s great efforts and ‘beautiful singing’. All the children were noted also by their fantastic ‘assembly rules’ making sure they were sitting beautifully and were listening at all times. The year 2 children participated greatly by reading a short Harvest poem and finishing with a prayer reading which they read with expression and ease. It was a lovely service and something Rev Ruth Crompton said ‘we should be very proud of as a school’.
The children had a surprise and had to follow footsteps hidden in the KS1 outdoor area. It was very exciting as we didn’t know which animal’s footprints they were. We then found hidden in the vegetable patch a cardboard box and inside was a letter and a very special little puppy. We took him back to class and we read the letter. It was from an old lady who lived near Silsden Park, she was unable to care for him as he was too energetic for her. So we have been looking after him. The children wrote a letter back to her to say how they are going to care for him in class 6. He has joined us for many activities in school such as learning to fetch in PE, taking him for walks in the playground and even puppy training him, the children signed him up for the vets in our role play area too! Next week the children are going to design a dog agility course (he’s even been practising to jump through hoops).
Class 8 have learnt the story Hairy Maclary. Here they are performing it for you!
They then wrote their own class versions of the story. I think they should write to the author to see what she thinks! Fantastic!
