A big thank you to all the children, parents and teachers who made the effort to dress up for Mytholmroyd Gala last Saturday. As last year, we ran away with most of the prizes in the fancy dress competitions.
Maya Tidswell, Lana Elliot Charlie Myers, Poppy Ogden, Jake Steele, Alex Myers, Ruby Owers, Molly Blacker, Lauren Best, Rhona Adams, Penny Brown, Jack Woodhead, Jenny Timson, Olivia Foster, Amy Ingram and Alice Timson all won prizes in the children’s categories. Tracy Hunt won a prize and the Burnley Road School teachers came first in the group competition. We also won first prize in the procession winning the best float.
Unfortunately last Friday the inclement weather meant the Foundation Stage had to hold their Sports Day in the hall. Despite this they had a wonderful time and had lots of fun.
The rain kept away for the Key Stages 1 & 2 Sports Day and we had a wonderful time with group events and finishing off with races at the end. Congratulations to the Tigers who were the overall winners and thanks for the gifts from www.valentinesgiftideas.co.uk who provided the prizes for the children.
Thank you to parents and friends who came to watch and support the children.
House Point Treat
The winning house, the Leopards, had an afternoon of baking. The younger children in baked flapjacks in school and the older children baked buns at Calder High School. We all had a wonderful time.
We said goodbye to our Year 6 leavers earlier today at St Michael’s Church. We are very proud of them and are sorry to see them go.
We also said goodbye to Mrs Robinson who is leaving us to go full time at Ferney Lee School. We send her our best wishes.
Mrs Brooks attended the service to present her trophy to Georgia Whitehouse for her talents in athletics and netball.
