Events & Visits

We endeavour to widen the experience of the children we teach.  Whenever possible, subject to the availability of staff expertise, we try to provide the opportunity to acquire new skills and interests.

Special events are often held within school. The theme of the events vary – sometimes it can be to support a particular project or learning priority or to mark a special occasion or national celebration.

Visits from and visitors to school are frequently arranged for the children, in the course of class work. These vary from class to class and from year to year.

Year 6 children are given opportunities to go on a residential visit and also to take part in a variety of activities and experiences.  This gives the children firsthand experience of other people and places.  We spend a few days away at the Diocesan Retreat Centre at Myddelton Grange and also have a day of adventurous activities.

Class 2 Cricket Festival

Class 2 had a great time at the All Stars Cricket Festival. They represented our school very well and had lots of fun in the sun. 

KS2 Badminton Festival

Well done to our five participants. They all enjoyed practising skills learned at school. 

 

Class 2 visit Horbury Library and Rickaro Books

Class 2 enjoy reading a lot! We really liked seeing a bookshop and choosing a free World Book Day book. We also enjoyed finding more out about the library and what you can do there. 

Easter Egg collection

In support of Flag Fundraising, a community group who support a wide variety of charities, we have collected lots of Easter Eggs. Flag Fundraising are collecting eggs to distribute to children who are supported by charities and those who are in hospital. We are pleased that we could help others in this way. 

Scooter and Skateboard Day

Back in February, Classes 1 and 2 enjoyed a visit from a Scooter teacher and Classes 3, 4 and 5 got to try out the skateboards. We really enjoyed ourselves and most of us got to try something new and develop our skills. 

Class 2 trip to the Hindu Mandir and National Media Museum

Class 2 had a great time. Their behaviour was excellent and they learned a lot about a different religion. The museum was great fun as we witnessed an exploding balloon full of different gases. 

Class 1 visit to the Yorkshire Wildlife Park

We had a wonderful time and learned lots about all the animals in the Wildlife Park. Thanks to all who helped us on our day out.  🙂

Choir attend Young Voices

Our school choir had a wonderful day at Young Voices at Sheffield Arena. They sung their hearts out with around 6,000 other children from the area. Big thanks to all the staff that gave up their time to take the children.

Advent Art Workshop

Some of our Year 4 children enjoyed an Advent Art Workshop at Holy Family & St Michael’s Catholic Primary School.

They had a wonderful time decorating their baubles.
