This week our year six pupils will be having a well deserved few days of fun. After working hard in their SATS last week it's time to let their hair down and enjoy all the activities on their residential.

Let's hope that everybody (including the staff) have a great time.

Acorns trip to Eureka

On Thursday 9th May our Reception class visited Eureka.  They walked to the train station and waited excitedly for the train to come. Everybody was a little bit wet when they arrived at Eureka but that didn't stop anyone having great fun! After looking round the museum and eating lunch on the static train, it was time to get the train back to Sowerby Bridge to meet parents or walk back to school.  There are more photos in the gallery.

Extreme Reading


Some of our pupils (and staff) have been reading in some unusual places.

There are more photos in our gallery.

Reading Apps!!

Together as a school we are encouraging children to read at home

as often as they can.

There are plenty of free resources, free ebooks and activities linked to your child's reading to encourage them to read at home on a laptop or computer!

Good recommendations are: Oxfordowl.co.uk - RisingstarsUK.com - Topmarks.co.uk
