Story time

On Friday Foundation Stage had a special visit from a storyteller. We joined in singing songs and enjoyed listening to a traditional story performed by the storyteller. 

Forest School

Children from Sycamore went to Judy Woods on Thursday. We learned about the different trees in the woods, the seasons and how they affect the trees. We also played in the water and got muddy.

 Little Movers Make Giant Strides. 

Weavers enjoyed their introduction to their new IEYC Topic Little Movers Make Giant Strides. They took part in activities under and on top of their tables.

‘Lost in Translation’

The European Day of Languages was first set up by the European Council in 2001. Now, it takes place every year on 26th September.

To celebrate that we live in a rich continent full of interesting languages, we have recreated a book called ‘Lost in Translation’ which is a compilation of words/phrases in different languages that don’t have a literal translation in any other language.

Hope you really like it!

Lullaby Story Year 2

Year 2 Forster have learnt the lullaby in their story by using action to help retell the story.

Nurture Group 17/10/19


This week the Nurture group has been helping out in Reception. Mrs Wilson asked if we could build a Mud Kitchen, we were only too pleased to help. The children read the instructions and learned to use new tools. At the end of the session we had created something really stunning.

Bike-ability 18/10/19


Today,s Bike-ability lesson took us to Halfords, where we bought tools and spare inner-tubes, to repair the remainder of the school bikes.  We also purchased some new helmets for the children in reception.

The highlight of the day was when one of the team members managed to ride their bike unaided for the first time.

Lego - Full Power
Children in year 6 had an awesome day learning about energy and electricity for their I.P.C topic Full Power! Children were asked to build their own Lego house, which was then used to form part of a street. Children then connected their houses up to electricity to power lights in their houses, street lights, cars and even trains in their Lego City!
A big thanks to Stephen from Creative Builder Workshops for delivering the sessions.

Bedtime Stories Competition Winners

These are our winners for the Bedtime Stories competition. The children in Year 5 had to create a new character for the new Shaun the Sheep film Farmageddon. Our winners were Subhan, Matej, Yousaf and Fatima. They will be entered into a draw against all the other BD5 schools and could win free tickets to see the film. We wish them luck.



Due to the bad weather today, bike-ability moved indoors.  Mrs Fisher ask if we would help build a mud kitchen. All the children worked extremely well together and we all thought the end result was amazing. 

Nurture Group 03/10/19

To celebrate a child in the group's birthday, the Nurture Group made birthday cup cakes and shared them with all the teachers. Afterwards we sang Happy Birthday. Everyone had a great time. Mrs O'Brien said they tasted lovely!


Mr Calcraft visited Weavers today, we built a tent and had loads of fun. We hope he comes back next week!

Spanish Club

Hope you really like it. 
If you want your child to practice Spanish, here you have a list of songs Miss Molina have been using across the school to teach Spanish:

Taiko Drumming Workshop


Year 5 and 6 took part in an exhilarating Taiko Drumming workshop last week. It was a great stress reliever and very loud! Thanks to Bradford Music Service for providing this experience!


Children from year 5 and year 4 have been fixing and cleaning the school bikes. Over the next few weeks we will be learning how to fix punctures and how to ride safely.

McMillan coffee morning

To help raise money for McMillan coffee, children from Sycamore building have been baking cakes and buns. These will be sold to all the children, at St Stephens, for 50 pence each. 

Nurture Group

Children from Lister class have been very busy this week. With the help of a year 5 ambassador, they have been helping to tidy up the outdoor equipment store.  All the children worked together and manage to accomplish their tasks.  Now all the school can benefit from their hard work.
