Words, words everywhere 💬

Everyone in Harehills Primary dressed up to represent a word as part of our World Book day. Miss Pallas and Mrs Mann who take a lead on promoting reading within school had planned a fun-filled assembly which included a very enthusiastic cast of adults acting out the Jolly Postman story. What a wonderful way to remind children of the enjoyment they can get from reading stories 😁👍Miss Pallas also launched our own in school challenge to see which class can read the most stories over the rest of this month. I know this will be very competitive because she has given prizes which offer money to the winning classes to allow them to choose books for their classrooms.

Meanwhile, there were no shortage of words for Year 6 children to read during their mock SATS week. They amazed and astounded me with the true grit and determination they showed when approaching the tests and the wave of support created for them by our staff team was just fantastic. I would like to put a 'shout out' for Mrs McMullen and the Year 6 staff team who have masterminded this massive operation so that it runs smoothly; vital in ensuring that every child feels confident to do their best 👍

The command of vocabulary was certainly an element needed for success for our Debating teams in this year's heats. Well done to our year 6 team who have secured a place in the final 🙌 🌟 ​
