Countryside Day - Sandford
Sandford had a fantastic day at The Countryside Day. We took part in lots of different workshops including orienteering, mini-beast hunting, Go Get Riding and pizza making. Here are a few pictures showing what a great time we had!
The circus came to Crossley Street this week! The whole school enjoyed an entertaining assembly and learnt circus skills throughout the day. It was lots of fun!
Year 3 children were given the opportunity to put their needle and thread skills to the test during the Spring Term. They all agreed that re-threading those needles was the most challenging part!
The children learnt several yoga poses and tried really hard to join in and give them all a go.
We have just finished our incredible International Day, where the children have, in their house teams, visited 5 countries from across the globe: Russia, Mexico, Australia, Japan and Senegal. They have sampled food from each of the countries and had a go at some traditional practices, including Japanese writing, African drumming, creating Faberge eggs, Aboriginal boomerang art and making Mexican mirrors. It was wonderful to see the children having such a great day, whilst learning about the cultures and traditions of the countries they visited. Everybody had their own passport, which was stamped in each country.
Sanford enjoyed learning all about meditation and skills they can use to help them relax and calm their minds! On the final day we made dream catchers, they looked amazing!
World Book Day 2018
It may have been a week late due to the snow and it may have snowed really heavily again on the rescheduled date, but that didn't stop our children (and parents) putting in an amazing effort for this fun day at school! The costumes and ideas were fantastic, so well done everyone!
Book Character Potatoes!
Despite the snow disrupting our planned 'World Book Day', school was open on Friday and lots of the children brought in the most amazing potatoes, which they'd made to look like book characters. The creativity was fantastic! So many different ideas! Thank you so much to everyone who took part.
Leeds Rhinos Rugby
Years 1, 2 and 3 have been taking part in weekly Rugby lessons with Vila, our Leeds Rhinos coach, who has also been running a lunchtime club for children in Years 4, 5 and 6. The children have learned a range of different skills and some of them are well on their way to becoming very accomplished Rugby players. Keep up the hard work everyone!
Children from Year 4 and 5 have had great fun at Lego Club. They have created amazing structures and completed some tricky challenges. Can you spot the blindfold challenge in the photos?
Touch Typing Club
Touch typing is an exciting new after school club for upper Key Stage 2 children.
