Last week I was told all about an earthquake that had affected the annex building and caused disruption for Mrs Goodlad when she was marking after school. Year 4's theme is 'Natural Disasters - Would YOU...

'Safe as Houses'

Keeping one another safe is so important at the moment as we continue to live with coronavirus, so it couldn't be more apt that last week was the annual launch of our "Safe as Houses' initiative. This year's focus is on safe relationships and what they look like, especially within school. Who is it that you should trust and how do you know? So much work goes on in classrooms...

We are still living in difficult times due to the coronavirus pandemic and as we started a new term it reminded me just what an amazing source of support the Harehills Primary family offer. Children, staff,...

A bit of festive magic 🎅🎄✨

On my advent calendar it says, "Kindness is like snow, it beautifies everything is covers" and I have seen so many acts of kindness during last week, carried out by staff and children.

Throughout the week I could hear the children from F2, Year 1 and Year 2 practising the songs for their Christmas performance. I love to pop in to watch and join...

Manner weeks

Last week it 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. Visitors will often comment on how polite our children are. When they are out of school on trips, members of the public often stop staff to speak about how well behaved the group is and staff at the venues say what a pleasure...

A week full of special moments 😊

I am finding it hard to choose just one highlight from last week.
The Remembrance Day class circles poignant 2 minutes silence always gives me goosebumps, especially when the sun shines.

Then as a member of the Year 6 Gryffindor house, I got to enjoy their treat on Thursday afternoon because they were house of the week. We went out of school for a...

Another happy start to a half term 🙂

It's been another very happy start to a half term. We may have seen a whole range of weather and it is getting dark before we leave, but the positive, busy vibe across school helps to put a smile on everyone's faces 🙂

All classes spent time talking about ways to keep themselves safe if they were intending to go to a bonfire or fireworks...

Wonderful experiences

I continue to be wowed by the exciting learning opportunities teachers offer our children. From owls to sleepovers the list of experiences is endless and the smiles on children's faces tell me just how much they love taking part.😁 Staff are very conscious of the many things children missed during three national lockdowns and they are determined to try and recover...
