This week has been action packed in 5SW – we have had the second week of our arts fortnight, a trip and Anthony from the West Yorkshire Playhouse has come in to work with us.
I would like to say a big thank you to so many of the parents for coming to support the children and celebrate their successes in the arts fortnight celebration today. The work they have completed during these two weeks has been amazing and I am really proud as I am sure you are to.

On both Tuesday and Wednesday, Year 5 were lucky to visit Temple Newsam. The trip allowed us to roam around and discover the history of a building that was over 500 years old. We undertook two exciting activities that brought our learning to life. Firstly, we used the ornate decorations of the house to design and then make a fantastical beast out of clay. Secondly, we learnt about the interesting history of the stately home and took part in a thrilling murder mystery investigation.
We have also had our first session with Anthony from the West Yorkshire Playhouse, where we delved deeper into the storyline of Macbeth and began to act out some key lines from the play. We are looking forward to working with him for the next 5 weeks and finishing with a performance aimed at other children in the school.
Due to a lack of storage, please could you ensure that your child only brings to school a book bag and a draw string PE bag. Thank you for your understanding and co-operation.
Just a gentle reminder to make sure all school uniform is named, we have had a few lost items this week and it was difficult to return as the items were not labelled.
