The new sofas look like they are a hit in the school library! This makes another new cosy spot where our pupils can curl up with a book and enjoy sharing stories with their teachers and friends. We love to see this in our school and think the new area will be perfect for it.
How great does our new Teacher Library look? And what a great resource for all staff to use so that they are sharing and talking about books with pupils. Thank you to Mrs Saunders for her hard work and passion in putting this together. We can't wait to get started.
We made our first visit to Young Voices this year at Sheffield Arena and had an amazing time. Members of the choir had learned lots of different songs and joined in singing them with 4500 other children, as well as hundreds of parents, in what was a magical evening.
We loved seeing this in our Year Five/Six classrooms last week. Pupils were doodling while listening to their class book and you can see from the photos how productive they were! We can't wait to see if this works in other year groups and pupils were so absorbed.
Mrs Harrison and the Nursery Team would like thank each and every parent who has joined us for a library session this term. It has been wonderful to look at books, share stories and see so much enthusiasm from our youngest learners. Your support is always appreciated.
It's wonderful to see so many different pupils visiting Mr Harrison's office during the day to borrow and talk about books. This is completely unprompted and is happening more and more throughout the day. Keep it up, and remember, great readers make great learners.
We are feeling very proud of our U11 football team today. It was there first time representing Miriam Lord in tournament with the other schools in the Priestley Academy Trust and we came a respectable third place. A fabulous effort and great team spirit.
We know important it is to get our pupils moving to support their physical development. That's why we are introducing yoga sessions into the EYFS curriculum, led on by our good friends at Tatty Bumpkin. It goes without saying, our Nursery pupils are loving it already!
