At the beginning of May the School Council members helped organise a challenge based around the number 100 to help celebrate what would have been Captain Tom’s 101st birthday. Each class came up with their own idea and completed it together.
On Friday, Mr Barraclough visited us to run a workshop using Phiro robots. Our first task was to work out how to make the Phiros move and how to change the colour of the lights. Then we were set the challenge of programming them to move round the mazes that were set out on our tables. We had to work well in teams, as well as using problem solving skills to complete the tasks.
On Tuesday 3rd November 2020 we held a Year 4 Multiplication Tables Check information evening . This is the powerpoint used with all the information and links to suggested websites.
Year 3 had a creative time designing, making and then testing out their volcanoes.
Year 6 made minestrone soup using their knife skills and using a bridge hold to cut red onions, red peppers and courgettes into small cubes and then adding them to the vegetable bouillon stock, tinned tomatoes, pasta stars, garlic granules and basil. Everyone tucked in and most of the pupils liked it, having second and third helpings!
Year 2 threaded their own Mediterranean vegetables onto wooden skewers and added garlic salt, herbs and vegetable oil before cooking them on a griddle pan.

Children have been busy taking part in lots of sporting events the last Term.
Strictly Pennine and Strictly Mirfield
Another year, another amazing dance performance! Our team of Year 5 and 6 dancers worked exceptionally hard to rehearse their dance to Aladdin’s ‘Friend Like Me’. They practised on Tuesday mornings before school for nearly a whole term before the performance, showing real dedication. Mrs Goldthorpe and Miss Wright are extremely proud of the team’s performances and the effort they put in to rehearsing. Thank you!
West Yorkshire Cross Country Finals
We were extremely proud to have two teams make it through to the West Yorkshire Cross Country finals this year; a team of Year 3 boys and a team of Year 5 girls.
On the race day, they were very excited and a little nervous, but they all ran well and enjoyed their races. Poppy ran exceptionally well, finishing in 11th place which won her a place in the national finals. Unfortunately, these were cancelled due to the school closures during lockdown.
The Year 5 and 6 netball team took part in a netball tournament at MFG. Although they passed and moved really well, they found it challenging to score goals so unfortunately didn’t make it past the first round.
On a more positive note though, they were very excited and proud to be the first team to wear our new Crowlees sports t-shirts and hoodies which were kindly sponsored by a parent. Thank you – we think they look amazing!
Girls Active: Stepping up for change
Some of our Year 5 girls took part in a girls’ leadership day, designed to build confidence and empower girls to take positive action to improve the PE, sport and physical activity experience back in school. This event was run by the Youth Sport Trust.
