We have been so busy these last two weeks Miss Lucas forgot to post about our exciting adventures last week!
On Wednesday 9th February it was Day 1 of our Local History Project. We took a trip to the Discovery Centre in the morning where we looked at maps and artefacts linked to Moor Allerton. In the afternoon, we carried out more research about the area our school is located, in Leeds Library using books and newspaper clippings on a projector! What fun we had! Unfortunately, Day 2 had to be rearranged due to the weather this week but we are looking forward to learning even more about our very interesting local area.
Last week, we celebrated Women in Science week. I was very impressed when the children were asked to draw a scientist how many female scientist there were (and this was before they knew it was Women in Science week). We looked at a variety of Women who made an impact in Science but we focused on Mary Anning, the fossil collector.
We had a very exciting visitor last Friday 11th February from author Serena Patel. What an inspiration she was! Serena told us all about how she became an author, the challenges that came with it and her successes.
Year 3 have been working collaboratively as a Year group over the past two weeks to perform an Ice Palace dance choreographed by Miss Allison.
This week was a very exciting week in school as it was Round 1 of our annual Spelling Bee competition. I know how hard the children have been practicing for this and I was so proud of them all for their efforts. We reached a tie breaker round but our overall champions were Elijah and Evelyn. Huge congratulations to you both.
My learner of the week last week was Huw, this was for always contributing meaningful ideas to class discussions and I was particularly impressed with his questioning and making links during our History trip. Thank you for always working so hard and trying your best Huw. Keep up the good work.
My learner of the week this week was Caitlyn. Caitlyn is my learner of the week this week for being a wonderful member of the class. She is so kind, caring and has lovely relationships with the other children and staff in school. Despite having some time at home, Caitlyn has came back and jumped straight back into her leaning. What a fabulous member of the class you are!
Our Home Reading Champions last week were Hawa and Noor and this week it was Pippa. Well done for all the reading you are doing at home!
Lexia Legends this week were Sara, Hawa, Eseohe, Noor and Huw

I want to wish you a lovely half term break. Thank you for all of the support over the last seven weeks. I look forward to seeing the children again on Monday 28th February when school returns as normal.
