An outward facing school

It is enjoyable and important to share best practice from our school as well as listening and learning about what is effective in other schools. Snapshots into the life of our school have included school food and lunchtimes,...

The power of a story

Year 1 children from Bexley 1 used a very old story to deliver an important message in their assembly. Using Talk4Writing actions they told the story of The Three Little Pigs demonstrating confidence and enthusiasm. They added their own twist to the story...

Time to explore 'Moving on up'

In March our Year 6 children will find out which high school they will transfer to in September. An effective transition is so important at any stage of a child's learning journey but especially when the next step involves a change in school. Our Assistant Headteacher Mrs McMullen in partnership with the Vice Assistant Principal from the Co-op Academy has put...

Using our imagination

We had several visitors in school during last week working with our children to inspire them to use their imagination and be creative. East Street Arts began an artist project with 30 of our Year 6 children. Their creative ideas will be used along with those from children in other CHESS cluster schools to contribute to a huge sculpture to be sited in the grounds of the...

Ready to learn

I really enjoyed visiting classrooms last week. Everywhere I went I was greeted by happy, smiling children who were very enthusiastic to talk about their learning. From Romans, tornadoes and number sentences to finding out about Outer Space, every class was inspired and engaged. In assembly we took time to think about the many things we are proud about at Harehills Primary...

A bit of festive magic

I joined the F2 children on their trip to Stockeld Park where we all escaped for a few hours into a world of fantasy, magic and mystery which happens at this time of year. Our children behaved perfectly and the conversations inspired by this visit were a joy to listen to.

On Sunday members of our choir joined children from other CHESS schools as part of the Advent...

Make a noise about bullying

Last week was National Anti-bullying week and we launched our week with an assembly aimed at clarifying what bullying actually looks like. All too often our children and sometimes their parents are quick to label an incident as bullying when in reality it is friends teasing one another, being unkind and falling out or children making the wrong choices. 

Our Year...
