The final day of term was an exciting one for our star attenders who took part in Chinese Dancing Workshops. This was open to everyone who had an attendance of above 98% and the photos clearly show what an enjoyable event it was.
We will be hosting an Open Day on Monday 17th December for new parents and families. This is a great opportunity to visit the school, meet members of staff and see what we have to offer at Miriam Lord. Please spread the word throughout the community and encourage people to visit us at anytime during the day. The leaflet below has more information for new families.
Today has been one of the most memorable days I can remember at Miriam Lord as we celebrated our first ever Dream, Believe Achieve event. Mrs Saunders (Year Six Class Teacher) has worked so hard to make this event a success and has been relentless in trying to get as many inspirational visitors as possible to speak to our pupils. All that hard work paid off as we were lucky to be visited by some truly inspirational guests from a range of careers and backgrounds.
A special thanks must go to Naz Shah MP who took time out of her busy schedule to kick off the day with a fantastic assembly. In the assembly she talked to our pupils about her background, how hard she had worked and about how the choices she had made that led to her becoming a Member Of Parliament.
This has then been followed by assemblies and workshops from a range of visitors including: an Apprentice finalist, a Bake Off contestant, vets, civil engineers, solicitors, doctors, police officers and lecturers. On behalf of everyone at Miriam Lord Primary School can I say a huge thank you to everyone who has very kindly given up their time to inspire our pupils, it is much appreciated.
As well as this, we encouraged the pupils to come dressed as someone they aspire to be in later life. As you can imagine, we have had an abundance of footballers; but we have also had children dressed as: fire officers, doctors, teachers, pilots and vets. It is reassuring to know that the future is in good hands when our pupils grow up and start these new roles and careers.
Keeping children safe is our most important job at Miriam Lord. So we were delighted to be joined by colleagues from the fire service who visited school to talk to our Year Five pupils. Whilst they were on site they also gave a lovely talk to our youngest learners in Nursery and Reception who were thrilled to have a look in the fire truck and play with the hose.
Thank you to so many children who came to join us for our latest Movie Night. It was lovely to see so many of our pupils enjoying either a screening of 'Boss Baby' or 'Trolls' and tucking into some popcorn. We also raised approximately £400 which will be donated towards our Buckden Residential this year to enable as many pupils as possible to attend.
After a lot of speculation, and many visits to the see the eggs, one of them finally hatched. I don't think anybody was expecting what hatched from the egg as the whole school was visited by a T-Rex! It's not often we get to see a dinosaur in Manningham, but our children showed a great amount of bravery when confronted by him. Luckily, 'Jam' turned out to be quiet friendly and the children had the chance to work together in workshops to find out more about him. It was a day we won't forget about in a hurry.
