Who is your hero/heroine?

Please see SeeSaw for all our up to date pictures and videos of what is happening in class! We love to share a glimpse into our world at school.

Our first PE lesson!

today we had our first PE lesson in the hall. We talked about the importance of staying safe in the hall, how to warm up our bodies before exercise. We worked in our house teams today and played 'pirate treasure'. The children really got the hang of working in their team to collect as much treasure as they could. 

Getting changed for PE is always tricky but the children did really well and tried hard. Any help at home with independent dressing and undressing would be appreciated. 


Reception will be starting PE this term! Northdene have PE on a Thursday and Bankhouse have PE on a Friday.

PE kits- each child should bring in a labelled PE pump bag to school (no backpacks please), this bag will be kept in school and sent home at the end of term for the contents to be checked for size and washed. 

Your child's PE bag should contain:

-house coloured t-shirt- Wainhouse= red, Calder= blue, Savile= green, Hebble= Yellow (this could be a plain coloured t-shirt or a Copley logo shirt. If you need to find out which house your child is in please ask your class teacher. Siblings are always placed in the same house.)

-dark shorts 

-dark joggers/leggings

-PE pumps (Velcro/pull on pumps please, no lace up trainers)

-spare pair of socks 

PE will start w/c 10th January, if you need any help with PE kit before then please ask.

Christmas party!

More photos from our second Nativity performance

We have been doing our Nativity this week. The children sang beautifully and performed really well

In Geography we have been looking at making maps of our local area and particularly focused on the journey we take to Bushcraft. We discussed the things we saw on the way to the woods which we would class as significant points of our local area such as the park, the crossroads, the canal, the viaduct, the rugby club, the bridge and St Steven's church. 

Bushcraft 15.11.21

Diwali 2021- the children really enjoyed learning all about Diwali 'the festival of light'. We talked about how Diwali was celebrated by people all over the world but was a particularly important festival in India. We found India on the map and talked about the similarities and difference between the culture there and ours here in England. We looked at Rangoli patterns, read the story of Rama and Sita and compared this festival to others we might have experienced. We even made our own Diya lamps out of clay. What a lovely celebration. 

Remembrance Day- the children all made their own poppies and wore them to take part in two minutes silence. We were very proud of how respectful they all were. 


The first group to go to Bushcraft had a wonderful time on Monday. We can't wait to do it all again next week!
