Class 2 explored the grounds of Cliffe House in Shepley, discovering many species of wildlife and plants. They enjoyed a picnic lunch in the sunshine and a workshop led by Cliffe House staff.
Class 1 had a fantastic day at Manchester Airport Viewing Park. They had a tour of the outside of a plane, explored the inside of a 747 and watched planes take off and land from the viewing platforms.
We made the most of our beautiful surroundings with a walk to Denby Delf with Denby Dale Countryside Officer Dave Wilde. We all enjoyed our sunny walk, particularly searching for various insects and wildlife along the way.
Class 3 learned a lot during their visit to Colne Valley Museum. They experienced a day in the life of a Victorian child, enjoying a variety of different activities.

Our newly formed Ethos and Worship Committee have already prepared prayers with Reverend Joyce, planned and conducted an assembly themselves and chosen a charity for school to support this year.
In June, the School Council organised a 'Walk a Wacky Mile' event, to raise money for Sport Relief. They invited children and adults to walk a mile around our school grounds; however, this was no ordinary mile! We dressed in our wackiest get-ups and hula-hooped, jumped and skipped our way around an obstacle course! Children and parents showed fantastic energy and resilience as they completed the challenge. A big well done and thanks to everyone who helped to raise money for such a worthy cause.
FODS very generously funded our whole school trip to Scarborough in June. Children and adults alike had a fantastic day. We learned about sea creatures and their habitats at the Sealife Centre before heading to the beach for a spot of lunch and sandcastle-building. Thank you, FODS!
In June, our whole school visited Hindu and Sikh Temples in Bradford.
