Our safeguarding assemblies this week have been about keeping healthy. Following last week's sports week, Miss Atkinson was keen to talk to pupils about their healthy lifestyle choices. This included regular exercise, keeping clean, having enough sleep, feeling good and having a healthy, balanced diet.
This week, at lunchtime, we have had to remind children about eating habits. In particular, lunchtime staff have had to send some children back to their seats because they had bulging mouthfuls of food. We have reminded them about the importance of taking small mouthfuls and eating food properly. We do not want any children choking on food. We have not had any choking incidents so far. A few years ago, a young child at Anlaby Primary School lost their life through choking. We
We had a socially distanced production of the Tortoise & the Hare from Hull Truck this morning. Years 1 and 2 were delighted to watch a theatre company in school. It was the first time in ages that these young pupils have had this experience. It was a great performance that everyone loved to watch. Many thanks to Hull Truck.
We are delighted to announce that the winner of last week's reading prize, provided by the brilliant people at Ready Steady Read was Oliver in Year 4. We are indebted to Ready Steady Read and their sponsors SPS Securities (@spsteam) for their most generous donations.
Year 5 had a brilliant session this afternoon in an online meeting with Kirsty Applebaum. As a child, Kirsty spent her time playing around churchyards and butterfly fields. Since then she has had an eclectic mix of jobs including bookselling, railway re-signalling, picking stones off a conveyor belt and putting lids on perfume bottles. These days she teaches Pilates two days a week and dedicates the rest of her time to writing. In February 2017 Kirsty graduated from Bath Spa
KS1 Sports Day. Pupils in years 1-2 competed in their sports day. Owing to COVID-19, no parents/relatives were allowed to join us. Hopefully, we will be back to normal next year. Weather conditions were not as hot but still very good. Everyone enjoyed being outside and taking part in many different activities. Thanks to Mr Jones and staff for leading such a wonderful day.
For all year 4 pupils across the country, they have the opportunity to take the optional multiplication tables check (MTC), in June 2021. The purpose of the check is to determine whether pupils can fuently recall their times tables up to 12, which is essential for future success in mathematics. It will also help our staff to identify pupils who may need additional support. Over the next week, the year 4 pupils will be having practise sessions to get them used to the test. The
We have had a brilliant KS2 Sports Day. Pupils in years 3-6 came to school wearing their team colours , either red, yellow, green or blue, to compete in their sports day. Regrettably, due to COVID-19, no parents/relatives were allowed to join us. Nevertheless, pupils thoroughly enjoyed competing in a carousel of activities. Under a hot sun, water bottles, sun cream and sun hats were definitely required. Many thanks to Mr Jones for organising and leading this as well as staff

Today, we had our Record Breakers' events to see which pupils set new records for running, throwing, jumping activities. As it has been a while since our previous records were competed for, we have decided to wipe the slate clean and start again. Many thanks to our brilliant PE Coach, Mr Jones for organising and running this. We were blessed with some gorgeous weather. Please may we remind parents that pupils will need water bottles, sun hats and it would also be a good idea
Firstly, it is with regret that we are not able to invite parents and relatives to our sports week events this year. Once again, the COVID-19 pandemic is the reason for this. We had hoped that by the summer term, we would all be back to normal. Owing to social distancing, we still cannot have parents joining us for this. We have asked pupils to come in their PE kits for at least Monday to Wednesday this week.
Here is the schedule: Tuesday 8th June - Record Breakers. Pupils i
