Reviews 2019/2020


Here you will find reviews written by the pupils on the various events they have attended throughout the year.


Cross Country - September 2019

Year 3, 4, 5 and 6 children went to cross country on the 18th of September 2019. There were 46 children in all representing the school. The first race was year 3 boys then year 3 girls, and last was year 6 boys then year 6 girls. The top 8 children in each race went through and we had 9 children in the top 8. It was the year 3 children’s first time doing cross country and they all did very well. The children who got through in the top 8 qualified for the Craven finals on the 3rd October 2019. Year 3 and 4 had to run one full lap of the course and year 5 and 6 did 1 and a half laps. The course was hilly and bumpy. It started going up a hill then we ran to about half way down the hill and came back round to the start line again. The second lap was all the way down to the bottom of the hill and back up again, it then had a sprint to the finish. Overall, it took about 2 hours for all of the races to be run.

For the second round our 9 children went to Giggleswick School to compete against other children.  4 out of the 9 are now through to the Dalby Forest race on the 5th November 2019: Ethan, Oliver, Holly F and Holly E.

Well done to everybody that took part wherever they came.

Ilkley Literature Festival  - September 2019

On Tuesday 1st of October 2019, Years 5 and 6 went to Ilkley literature festival to see Robin Stevens - the author of the Murder Most Unladylike Mysteries. It was in a theatre in Ilkley. When we got there, some of us bought one or two of her bestselling books; it took her about a year and a half to write her first book called A Murder Most Unladylike. Her newest book is called Top Marks For Murder. Robin Stevens was telling us all about her life and what inspired her to be an author. She was telling us why she decided to write murder stories. The authors that inspired Robin Stevens all wrote murders and have come out to be bestsellers all around the world. One of those people is Agatha Christie. She was asking us some questions to make up a story using clues. The clues were some reading glasses, a black glove and a button. We had some suspects and had to work out who was the murderer. We are very thankful that we got to go and see a real life author. When we came out of the main theatre and went in to the reception, people who bought books got then signed by her.

Crucial Crew - April 2019

On Tuesday the 2nd April, the year 6's went to crucial crew for the day. When we arrived we got a leader chosen for us, also we got a map and a list of numbered activities of where to go. Our first activity was about consequences of crime. We did a bit of acting whilst learning about how the police can find out who has committed the crime by DNA and fingerprints. We also learnt about water, electricity and fire safety; what to do when something happens or to prevent certain things from happening. When it came to the end of the day, the instructors chose 2 winners for the poster competition, that we made back at school, Lulu and Jessica won. There was a choice of a football or a Frisbee, they both chose the football. Altogether we had a wonderful day and we learnt a lot.

On Monday 8th April, 7 year 6 pupils went to Greatwood Primary School to participate in the first basketball tournament.  We took part in 5 matches against 5 local schools.  We won 2 games, drew 1 and lost 2.  Only 5 people were allowed on the court at the same time so we had 2 substitutes.  We worked well as a team and made sure everyone got the ball.  We all enjoyed playing and hope to get the equipment to play basketball at school.
