Sharing best practice
Over the last couple of weeks our staff have been outward-facing and sharing best practice across the city. Two weeks ago Mrs Marshall and Mr Matthews shared a case study with an audience of more than 57 schools detailing what we have done to achieve such impressive outcomes in Maths. Last week Mrs McMullen and Miss Melling shared best practice at a PSHE event attended...
A 'Dahlicious' week
Books can offer so much enjoyment and allow us to escape into a world of imagination which has no bounds.
Our children were inspired by focusing on one of the many books written by the amazing Roald Dahl. From "The Enormous Crocodile", "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory", "Matilda" and "Boy", there is something for everyone. On Friday assemblies all classes shared what...
Back in style
Our first week back whizzed by and whilst conducting a learning walk around school, Mrs Lee and I were delighted to see children in all classes so eager and ready to participate. We loved the creative displays in every classroom which have been put up to inspire our children to ask questions and engage in the chosen themes for this half term.
We will be celebrating Roald Dahl's...
Welcome back to another school year. Our Harehills staff team is excited about all the opportunities we have planned to ensure our children continue to learn, laugh and love every day.

School's out for Summer; ending the term in style
This has been an amazing year for Harehills Primary school which has seen the school achieve many successes, with the highlight being the fantastic judgements given as a result of our Ofsted inspection in November 2015. But we are a school that continues to look forward and last week saw two teams reach the finals of the Leeds Primary school...

At 3pm families met their children and then together they were invited to spend at our stalls, buy food and drink, take part in fun activities, have...
Moving on up!
Taking the next step in life can often be scary and lead to a mixture of emotions including, worry, excitement, fear and apprehension. Last week our children had the opportunity to spend the afternoons in their new classrooms meeting their new teachers to help them prepare for the changes in September 2016. During the afternoon they participated in a wide variety of activities...
Sharing best practice
Mrs Lee and I attended a celebration event for our Recently qualified teachers (teachers who are in their first 3 years of teaching) last Wednesday at Carr Manor Community school. We were privileged to watch Mrs Caldwell, Miss Johnston, Miss Green, Miss Tremayne and Miss Shaw share examples of their own teaching which has had a real impact on learning within their...
How? Why? When? What?
Science is.... amazing, exciting, unpredictable, mad, brilliant are just a few of the adjectives children used to describe Science during our Science week last week. It was great to see every class absorbed in investigating, experimenting, predicting and having fun with Science.
A huge thank you to Mrs Sharif (now known as Sharp-minded Sharif) and Miss Leckenby whose...
