Each year we are visited by Harold the giraffe and the Life Caravan team to help us understand the importance of looking after ourselves and others. We learn how to keep ourselves healthy, how to look after loved ones and how to be kind and thoughtful at all times. We learn about the choices we have to face and will face when we get older.
We have joined the Bradford Linking Schools project and our Year 4s are excited to work with our partner school, Iqra Primary School. The children exchange information about themselves before they visit each others schools.
As a school, we have joined the Intergenerational Linking programme with the Linking Network. Intergenerational Linking programme brings together young people with older people living in care homes, independent living. Through Intergenerational Linking, young and older people share time and stories which creates meaningful and lasting relationships between generations. We link with Earlswood Court in Wyke.
In year 5 the children are given the opportunity to attend a residential to Buckden House, in the Yorkshire Dales for 4 nights. They go caving, pony trekking, high ropes, team building, low ropes, walking, country dancing and many more. The children have lots of chances to experience new activities and lots of social time, as well as completing chores. Most of the activities involve teamwork and developing mutual respect.
To celebrate the Queen's 90th birthday we had a 'street' party. We all sang the National Anthem whilst waving Union Jack Flags. We talked about the importance of the Royal family and how the Queen has shaped our lives today.
Mutual respect for diversity is encouraged across the whole school. Children look at a variety of cultures across the curriculum. We accept that we are all different and that our differences are what makes us individuals. We raise money for a range of causes throughout the year. Here we were spreading the word about the importance of Sports Relief by parading through Wyke as a sponsored walk. We understand how lucky we are and that others are not so fortunate.
One Britain, one nation day. We had food from every nationality represented in our school! Mrs Barraclough was very busy finding recipes! Everyone enjoyed the food and most tried something different.
Unfortunately not the ones with chocolate chips.
