Manners week 2022
Last week was Manners week in school. We pride ourselves on our children having good manners and this is something that we have fostered over the years.
Elford 2 (Year 4) focused on Manners in their class assembly on Tuesday. I was so impressed with how confident they were in performing. Their assembly showed that the children have so many skills including acting, singing,...
Anti-bullying and Children in Need 2022
Every November during Anti-Bullying week we focus on supporting children to be aware of how we can stop bullying, and if it does happen how they can get help. We have a zero-tolerance approach to bullying at Harehills Primary school.
Throughout the week classes have been engaged in a range of fun activities which have allowed for plenty of time to...
We will remember
I am finding it hard to choose a highlight from last week, but the main focus was on remembrance.
Sandhurst 2 class assembly all about Remembrance day was wonderful and it was great to see so many parents come to watch. On Friday, the Remembrance Day class circles poignant 2 minutes silence gave me goosebumps, especially when the sun came out briefly from behind the clouds....
Bonfire Safety and Year 6 journey celebration ðŸŽ†ðŸ”¥ðŸ—º
It's been another very happy start to a half term. We may have seen a lot of rain and it is getting dark before we leave work, but the positive, busy vibe across school helps to put a smile on everyone's faces.ðŸ™‚
We invited Victoria and Hannah who are local PCSOs to our family assemblies on Tuesday. They talked...
As we are approaching the final week of this half term, I have been reflecting on the wealth of educational experiences we offer at school. For families living on tight budgets, in the current economic climate it is very difficult to do anything beyond feeding and clothing their children. This makes it even more vital that we can offer all those life experiences,...
Celebrating Black History month
October is Black history month and last week Mrs Marshall led our family assemblies. She spoke to the children about famous black people that they already know including, Marcus Rashford, Meghan Markle and Oti Mobuse. The focus of the assembly was then shifted to make the children aware of lesser-known black people who have had significant impact on the world...
Thank you for the Harvest ðŸðŸ‹ðŸ¥¦ðŸ…ðŸšœðŸŒ½
One of the highlights of last week has to be the Harvest assemblies when children gathered together and brought food to share. This year we asked year groups to bring in different items including, pasta, soup, tinned fruit, jam, fruit juice all of which we will give to local foodbanks. The message in our assemblies...
A high quality environment
The Strategic Leadership team completed environment walks over the last week and we shared the feedback at our weekly meeting. Everyone was very impressed with the high-quality environments that staff have created both inside classrooms and in shared areas. It takes commitment and a lot of hard work to keeping up this high standard.
We want to maximise the learning...
Queen Elizabeth 1, the ultimate role model
As I reflect on our first week of a new school term, I recognise how momentous it was for the country and the world. We are living through another unprecedented period of history. To witness the monarch welcome in a new prime minister two days before sadly dying at the age of 96 is a huge amount to process.
In school we have been and will continue...
The perfect end to the year ðŸ˜Š
This week started with school sweltering in the heatwave, and we had to make the decision to close after lunch to keep everyone safe and cool. The sensible way our children dealt with the high temperatures was so impressive and the support given by families was very much appreciated.
Faced with the challenges this loss of time created, the Year 6 team...
