Gurdwara

As part of our RE work on Sikhism, children visit a Gurdwara and see and hear first-hand how, where and why Sikhs worship and live the way they do.

Aspirations Day

Aspirations day is an opportunity for the children to discuss some of the options available to them when they finish school. The children learnt about some of their options through class-based and outdoor learning, having the chance to speak with professionals and through written information and practical sessions.

   

                                        

 

   

Magistrates

We are fortunate to have magistrates come to our school and teach our children about the criminal justice system. After some class based learning, children visit a court and take part in a mock trial at Dewsbury Town Hall.

Parent Workshops

Throughout the year we invite parents to come and join us in classes to find out how to help their child achieve even better. We love it when parents come and join in and judging by their comments our parents enjoy them and find them useful too.

"I found the maths workshop very useful."

"The teacher was kind and informative."

"Very interesting way of teaching. My child is more confident than before."

 

Dance

Every year we have Miss Lucy come and teach dance to the children in year 6. Last year the children made a dance based around the subject of Vikings, focussing on daily life, travelling and settling.

They also learnt to do the Hakka.


 

Drugs and Cyber Bullying

PC Whitehouse is a regular visitor to school to talk to the children about drugs and cyber bullying. Year 6 had their first visit in October as part of their Blood Heart project, learning about the effects of drugs on our bodies.
