Teachers PE staff meeting

On Wednesday, some of the staff from Siddal Primary School took part in a PE staff meeting. Here are some images of what we did: 

Dough Disco Day

On 14th June the whole school enjoyed a Dough Disco Day. We started the day with a whole school dough disco.

In the afternoon Early Years took part in a parent workshop. We made playdough with our grown ups, had fun playing with it and then had a go at Dough Disco. Thank you to all the parents/grandparents and family that attended the event.

 KS1 enjoyed taking part in Dough Disco outside in the playground !

What was your favourite part of the day?



Tudor Workshop

Rhino class had an amazing day yesterday learning all about Henry VIII and life as a Tudor. Year 3 completed many tasks from code breaking Mary Queen of Scots code, learning a traditional Tudor dance to handling Tudor artefact’s and weaponry.

The  children enjoyed themselves immensely and it was a great starter to our new topic, the Tudors.

Using modelling to write

Last week the children used a description of the witch from ‘The lost happy endings’ to create a  model. They then used role on the wall to write descriptive words of the horrid old hag before turning these descriptions into a paragraph.

Rainforest fun


Year 4 thoroughly enjoyed their work on the rainforest. They have spent the last half term leaning about the different layers of the rainforest, the animals that live there and the devastating effects that deforestation has  on the world.


Eco Council Vegetable planting and picking

Eco council have been very busy over the past few months growing and caring for our vegetable patch. The children brought in seeds kindly donated from home and we successful grew radish, lettuce and peas. Our carrots and potatoes are still growing and we cannot wait to taste them too.

Thank you to all the parents that donated seeds and remember if you have any unused gardening equipment at home, eco council would be happy to give it a home.


Love is your soul being happy….

Rainbow week in Panda Class got off to a brilliant start on Monday with a discussion all about love. We talked about what love is, how we show love and the people we love. We also thought about ways we could love ourselves. We made our own paper dolls and wrote positive words on each others. They are displayed in our classroom because we feel really proud of them!

We also talked about our families and thought about the similarities and differences between ourselves and others. We realised that the most important thing is love, it doesn’t matter what a family ‘looks’ like-there is no right or wrong.

We are looking forward to the rest of the week! 

Year 3 met the Siddal chicks!

Year 3 had some very cute visitors today.

Everyone really enjoyed getting to hold the adorable chicks even though one had an accident on Tyler’s leg! Luckily, Tyler is very used to chicks, having one of his own, and was able to keep everyone very calm. He saved the day! Especially when one decided to have a jog around the classroom towards Mrs. Newham who was really scared of it!

KS1 ICT Carousel

This week in carousel the children have been making their characters using modelling clay for their Animation projects.  They had fun making a range of characters including, princesses, unicorns, chickens, a rainbow horse and aliens.

Next week they will become film directors and producers when they begin to create their films.

Year 4 trip to York

Year 4 thoroughly enjoyed their trip to ‘The Dig’ in York yesterday. We took part in two workshops, where we learnt all about life as a Viking and how their different weapons were made and used. We then had the opportunity to become archaeologists and had a go at unearthing different towns and artefacts from the past.

Keep an eye on our page for more photos from our amazing trip.
