Learning , laughing and loving in abundance 

Year 3 amazed us with their snapshot into learning assemblies. Through acting, singing, showcasing writing they took us on a journey not only to different countries through the use of film clips but through every subject and aspect within the curriculum that they had visited since starting in year 3. The breadth of knowledge, skills and understanding on display was fantastic and I know that their families watching were as impressed as the rest of school was.

After all the hard work and excitement that goes into putting on a performance of that high standard I was delighted to see them back to work the very next day when I toured school with our new parent governor Mrs Khalil. Everywhere we went were classes of children totally absorbed in learning and showing exemplary behaviour. 

And it wasn't just the boys and girls enjoying learning last week! On Thursday the teachers put on their aprons and joined in staff training on Food in the Curriculum with great enthusiasm. Siobhan Mahoney from the School Health and Well-being team guided us through excellent practice for this key aspect of the Design and Technology curriculum. I know that under the leadership of Mr Khan this is part of our Harehills curriculum that is already in place but after the training our team are ready to release their inner chef and develop the core knowledge, skills and understanding in cooking for all their little learners.

Another wonderful week 👍
