Dexter, Ciaran and Ibti were lucky enough to accompany Miss Humphries to visit Slaithwaite CE this week to deliver some stories. They had a marvellous tour of the school and met the schools resident dog, Chester!

Visit to Slaithwaite


Today we opened a very special box given to us by Mojgan. We read her story together, along with some parents/carers and collated some curiosity questions. We are very excited for the Summer term when Mojgan will be coming to visit us in school! We will also be putting our drama skills to the test and acting out her story later in the year. 

Thank you to the families who joined us today, as always your support is greatly appreciated!

As part of the Carry My Story Project we have been looking at our own identities and what makes us, us! Children were encouraged to bring in something that was personal to them and we created a safe space to talk about these items. Children then went on to write some AMAZING poems, I will share these when we have written them up in best!

In the ground we added daffodil, tulip and grape hyacinth bulbs which (fingers crossed) will flower in late February and early March

We welcomed some new school councillors from Year 3:

Update September 2021


We have now made our donations to three charities using money raised at the bun sale.

These charities were:

The Welcome Centre

The Forget me Not Children's Hospice

The Yorkshire Children's Centre


We have also ordered a variety of new play and sports equipment for playtimes which will be arriving later this week!

Children had been keen to have a fun event to raise money for school and a charity so a Pyjama day and bun sale was organised for Friday 9th July.

This was such a happy day for all the classes. School councillors for each class organised a cake stall at break time, and lots of children from classes bought in and made cakes to sell.


The day raised £392.63.  Wow!

School Council have decided to give £180 to 3 local charities. The Forget Me Not Children's Hospice, The Welcome Centre Food Bank and the Yorkshire Children's Centre. 

The remaining money will be spent here in school to buy equipment for children in class and at playtimes.

Chewbacca homemade biscuits!

Cake stall and seller ready for action!
