Useful Websites

Help encourage your child's love of reading! Log onto Bug Club by using your child's very own password, which can be found in their planner. On Bug Club you will find interactive stories with activities that can be completed to win coins!


My Maths was very popular with the children last year. The children can be set a range of activities linked to their year groups learning and if there are no activities there are maths games to play independently or with others. Again, log in information can be found in planners.

Purple Mash is great fun, with lots great activities. The children all have passwords, which they should have stuck in their planners.

P.E. and Swimming Information

Swimming has now finished (08-02-17) and I'm glad to hear the children enjoyed their lessons. I hope you will continue to build on the skills they have been working on.

P.E. will now be on a Tuesday and a Thursday. Tuesdays, where possible, will be outdoors. Thursday will be a dance session and will be inside. Please make sure your child has the appropriate kit. We are also hoping to start running our mile again as the weather improves, so it would be useful for a P.E. kit to be in school every day.,

Wish us luck!

Well done nursery, year 5 and us! We won the Aspire Performance Poetry Competiton. Thank you for everyone who came to support, I'm sure you would agree that the children were brilliant. 

It it has been a great week with a lot of practising for poetry and for our summer concert which is coming up soon - you will not be disappointed. 

The children have worked hard and I'm sure will continue to do so in our final 5 weeks. 

Enjoy the weather this weekend.

This week we took part in our Asquith Performance Poetry Competition and we won! This means we will now take part in the final stages against other year 3 and 4 classes across our Aspire schools. The performance will take place on the 15th of June at Morley Town Hall. It will be in the morning. 

Letters will be sent out after the half term break to confirm all the details. 

Well done Alder Class. 

It has been a busy last week, children all working hard. 

The children have grammar and maths homework to complete for the first Wednesday back. 

Have a wonderful break, fingers crossed the weather stays hot hot hot!

Rain Rain Go Away

Although the weather has not been on our side, we have achieved a lot this week.

We have been practising our poem A LOT, ready to preform to the rest of the school Wednesday morning. The children are amazing! 

In Science, we have begun to look at the digestive system. The children have learnt many scientific names to label the I'm portent parts. 

We seemed to find our spelling test harder this week.  Keep practising! 

On Monday we are having a visit from an author. A letter was sent home Thursday with more information and a link to his book. 

Thank you for your continued support.
