On Thursday, 5 Year 4 pupils travelled down to Ireland Wood to take part in a writing workshop with well known author Terry Caffrey. The children were fantastic role models for our school and took part in a range of activities from performance poetry to writing their own short book.
Last week, Years 3 and 4 were invaded by a Roman visitor and he brought a legion of battle hardened, well disciplined and extremely well trained soldiers with him. Children learnt about the Roman invasion of Britain, the wars they had to keep control of Britannia and their battle tactics. I'd like to thank all the children (and staff) who dressed up, it added that little bit of magic to the day.
After weeks of work, the reading shed on the playground is now finished and open for pupils at break and lunch times. Kitted out with new rugs, beanbags and books, it provides an excellent reading resource for our children to sit, enjoy and love reading. The artwork on the walls is fantastic and Miss Farrell deserves a huge thank you for all her time and effort in creating the fantastic murals found inside.

The Leeds Book Awards came to a conclusion today with the awards ceremony at Pudsey Civic Hall. The children got to see the winner crowned, which was 'Murder In Midwinter' by Fleur Hitchcock. Mr Gamble and Raj Sharma were even chosen as volunteers to go on stage to act out a children's book read by compere Jason Beresford. See if you can spot them through their 'costumes'. Children then got the chance to meet the authors, get their autographs and pose for photos. It was an excellent end to our Leeds Book Awards journey and we are already excited about next year's shortlist!
As some of you are aware, Miss Farrell has been extremely busy this week painting the soon to be furbished and open reading shed on the playground. Here are a few early pictures to give you a sneak peek as to what is happening. Further photos and news will follow shortly.
