We are incredibly proud of our wonderful badminton team who did us proud in an inter-school tournament.  They put 100% in and really impressed us with the progress they made in their badminton skills over the course of the training sessions.  They really shone throughout the tournament.  Well done, team!

Ancient Greece Day

UKS2 pupils enjoyed a day learning all about Ancient Greece. They were visited by the Hands On History workshop where they became history detectives tasked with the job of finding out all about the past though a range of Greek artefacts. They learnt about the Olympics and participated in a mini Olympic Games; the winning girl and boy were awarded with medals designed by the children. They also got to taste many Greek foods they had never tried before and many now have these new food items to put on their shopping lists! Finally, they got to design and make a clay pot using the coil method. They will be decorating these pots next week. This was a great day for all the children and it will be one to remember.

Keep Dancing!

Our Y6 pupils completed the Clifton's 4,2,1 Step Challenge. Keith and Judy Clifton, former world dance champions and parents of Kevin from Strictly, were impressed with their dance moves. We think our pupils were A-MA-ZING and FAB-U-LOUS! Their video can be seen on Facebook/Instagram at Cliftonsdanceacademy86 and Twitter at Cliftons_dance.

Multi-skills at Healing Primary School

Year 3/4 are enjoying their multi-skills sessions, learning to fence with Mr Bakes.

Science Technology Engineering Maths

On Monday 10th September, the children in Magnolia Class were visited by a lady from a construction company in Leeds. She taught us all about the different roles of people who work on a construction site. She has let us borrow some resources for building in our outdoor area. We have had lots of fun working together to try to recreate famous structures such as Big Ben.

Key Stage 1 Hook Day

Our topic question is 'Did children in the past have more fun?'

To help us to answer our topic question, we are thinking about how toys have changed. On the 13th September, the children in Key Stage One were asked to bring in a favourite soft toy for our hook day. We worked in groups of Year 1 and 2 children to complete four exciting activities. In Mr Greenwood's group we used watercolours to paint our toys. With Mrs Knight we learnt about the history of the Punch of Judy show and made puppets. In Mrs Taylor's class we used a computer programme to make a bar graph about toys and with Mrs Pratt we played playground games from the past. What a great start to our topic work!

Tag Rugby Champions!

Year 6 entered an inter-school tag rugby competition.  Both teams were amazing and really did us proud.  One team managaed to make the quarter finals, whist the other went on to win the competition!  We are extra proud of the winning team as they proved themselves to be good sportspersons by giving their medals to the runners up, as the final was such a close game.  Go Team Healing!
