Proposal to increase primary school places within the Alwoodley area

Leeds City Council is consulting on a proposal to expand Allerton Church of England Primary School from a capacity of 420 to 630 pupils by permanently increasing the admission limit in reception from 60 to 90 pupils from September 2018. The consultation period commences on Monday 26 June 2017 and closes on Friday 21 July 2017 at 4pm. During this time we will be having some drop-in sessions at the school for parents, carers and residents to learn more about the proposal and ask any questions they may have. The format of the drop-in sessions is informal, with officers from the Sufficiency and Participation (school place planning), Built Environment and Highways teams in attendance to discuss any queries you may have about the proposals. You may attend any of the drop-in sessions between the start and finish times.

Dinosaurs, dinosaurs! An all time favorite topic for this week, as we start to learn about the animals. We talked about dinosaurs, we made fossils using play dough and then we baked it and we made some dinosaur hats out of paper. Using cereal boxes, we made some dinosaur feet and enjoyed using them for dinosaurs’ feet prints. The most excited days of the week were when we had iced dinosaur eggs and we tried to melt the ice by spraying warm water and using spoons to crack the eggs. On Friday, we explored how soda and vinegar can create a “volcano” and we spent the day on role play with our little dinosaurs and the volcano.

People who help us-Police: This week we have been learning all about police and police-officers. We made our own finger and hand-prints, we painted our own stop signs and we learned how to use them in order to be safe when we cross the street but the most excited day of the week was when we had some policemen visiting! The children got a chance to go in the police car and they really enjoyed it!

The last days we have been learning all about the community around us and the people who help us. We talked about firefighters and how they help us put out fires. We made our own paper-flames, painted fires and pretended to be firefighters. Moreover, we learned about the objects we have at home and they are hot and not safe to touch like the oven and the pan. Leah and JJ celebrated their 3rd birthday with their friends, happy birthday to you!

Gruffalo and the autumn

Very busy this week as Mr.Gruffalo visited the classroom!The children were more than excited to have a story reading under a tree in the playground and then help the Gruffalo to find some nice autumn leaves! We then talked about all the different shapes and colors of the leaves and used them for our crafts! On Friday ,our team spirit was on  fire and we made a big group collage, taking turns and sharing with each other! Well done!
