Y6 emotional wellbeing

In PE in Year 6 this half term, we are learning the practice of yoga. We are hoping that this will help us to manage our stress and anxieties associated with the preparation for SATS. We then had a PSHE lesson and during circle time we discussed our worries about the upcoming tests. The children were very honest and appreciated the opportunity to share their feelings with their friends. It really helped the children to understand that everyone has similar feelings and that it’s ok to feel worried. We then discussed strategies to help us manage our worries and stress, which we will continue throughout this half term.

Overgate Christmas Jumper Day

This week, Sarah Kissack from Overgate Hospice visited school and we presented her with a cheque for £132 which was the kind donations made by the children on our Christmas jumper day in December.

NSPCC Sponsored events

On Wednesday, KS1 took part in a keep fit session for their NSPCC sponsored event. The children kept going for 45 minutes, and although they were very tired at the end, they all really enjoyed the event.

On Thursday, KS2 took part in a local walk for their NSPCC sponsored event. The children walked along the cycle path to Mytholmroyd and then back to school. The whole event took around 1hr 45 minutes and the children worked really hard to achieve their goal.

Choir visits Higgins Close

The choir ventured out on their Christmas rounds once again, this time visiting residents and visitors at Higgins Close.

They performed their brilliant repertoire of songs, and used fantastic props for Jingle Bells and Christmas in Waikiki that encouraged the audience to sing along.

Choir at Luddendenfoot Community Center

The choir performed their Christmas songs beautifully at the community centers annual Christmas Dinner, singing classics such as Jingle Bells alongside more modern carols like Nazareth from Nativity the movie.

Year 5/6 Boys football match

On Thursday 22nd November, 9 boys from Year 5 and 6 represented Luddendenfoot Academy in an inter-school football match against Field Lane. It was the first time that all the boys had played together as a team, and with some great football skills and a fantastic team spirit they won 3-0! They all played really well and should be really proud of their efforts.

 

Rememberance Day

After our key stage assembly, where we discussed the meaning of Remembrance Day and why we wear a poppy, we put our fine motor skills into action to create these beautiful tissue paper poppies. We have displayed them in our classroom window for all to see.

A Victory for Eco Club!

We have finally received our Green Flag! Well done to everyone in Eco Club and all the staff and pupils who have worked so hard to make Luddendenfoot Academy a green and pleasant school! All our recycling, energy conservation, composting, wildlife managing, tree-planting, badger saving and litter-picking has paid off and we can now proudly display our flag to the whole world. This is just the beginning, however, as a brand new eco club is going to undertake more exciting projects this year….

Y6 Head Boy and Head Girl.

Last week we held our annual elections.  Children from year 6 presented their election speeches in an assembly for the rest of key stage 2.  All of the candidates gave very impressive speeches as to why they felt they had the desirable qualities for the role.  All children and staff then had the opportunity to vote for one boy and one girl.

We are pleased to announce that Matthew and Ffion were elected as the Head Boy and Girl.  Supporting them in their roles are Finley and Evie.

Well done to all children who participated in this event.

Rabbits for Easter!

Today we had some special visitors in school in the build up to Easter – 5 baby rabbits!

We were able to observe them and ask questions about their age, colour, food, life cycle and even about their features!

It was very interesting and all of the classes agreed that they were the cutest visitors we have had.
