Always one of the highlights of our year, the sun shone for children in our recent Sports Day. It can seem sometimes that we are so focused on improving our skills in reading, writing and maths that children don't get a chance to show off their talents in other areas. This day changed all of that as pupils earned hundreds of house points for demonstrating their sporting prowess. Thank you to all parents and family members who joined us on the day.
On Friday of this week (21st July 2017), children from Miriam Lord took part in a Peace Walk as a demonstration of our commitment to diversity and community cohesion. Children from across Key Stage Two took the streets of Manningham armed with banners and made their feelings about how they desire peace and love in the world. At Miriam Lord we have always tackled the bigger topics with our children, and this year has seen atrocities in the world that we feel need discussion so as our pupils understand them. We were lucky to be joined by so many of our parents, as well as Alistair Helm from St Paul's Church and the day finished with a rendition of 'One Love' by Bob Marley where we were joined in the playground by the rest of pupils in school. The idea was inspired by Miss Deciacco in Year Six and we would like to thank everyone for their support with this project. A link to the T+A story is below as well as some photos from the day.
Our super star attenders had a fantastic time on our end of year attendance celebration. We were brilliant bowlers, had a delicious Nandos and finished the day exploring Lister Park. Everyone at Miriam Lord knows that we take attendance very seriously and we hope to have many more days like this next year.
Children at Miriam Lord Primary School are doing a fantastic job at learning their times tables. Throughout the year children have competed in the Miriam Lord All Star competitions which prepared them for the final competition of the year! These competitions are a highlight of our term and our pupils work hard to not only make it to the final competition table, but to take home the spoils.
The 2017 winners have been found. We have a star of Bronze (Mohammed Ali, Year 5), a star of Silver (Abdul, Year 5) and a star of Gold (Atiyah, Year 6). There were some fantastic competitors but keeping the crown as 'All Stars Super Star' is...Nisar (Year 5).
A huge congratulations again to Nisar and a massive well done to all the children who competed in the competition this year. Hopefully there will be many more in the competition next year and we may even crown a new winner, though I'm sure Nisar will work hard to make sure he doesn't lose his crown without a fight.
