Remembrance - lest we forget
This week we will mark the centenary of the beginning of the first world war. It is important our children understand the sacrifice that men and women have given by being injured or losing their lives in wars all over the world so that we can live in peace.
We will mark the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month with a two minute silence. All our classes will form a circle and each class will plant a wooden cross with a poppy on it representing different faiths.
Remembrance day is a time to be sad, but it is also a time of hope. The hope of a better more peaceful world for everyone
Making progress, moving forward
I am pleased to let you know that we had an HMI visit this week and the inspector believes we are doing well in our progress towards getting a Good judgement at our next full Ofsted inspection in Autumn 2015. He spent time looking at teaching and learning across school and said that real progress was evident across school. He talked about attitudes to learning as being good and he saw a lot of active learning. Well done Harehills Primary. Let's keep it up!
