Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs at Bradford Alhambra

Today some of our pupils attended ‘Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs’ at Bradford Alhambra. Starring Billy Pearce and Paul Chuckle, the pantomime was absolutely brilliant and our pupils had a fantastic time. Oh yes they did! Our children’s behaviour during this trip was impeccable and they were a credit to Siddal Primary School. Here’s some photos of us attending the performance. Click on the images to enlarge. 

Christianity and Islam Workshop at Halifax Minster

Christmas Carol Service at St. Mark’s Church

Today we held our annual Christmas Carol Service at St. Mark’s Church, Siddal. Accompanied by traditional Christmas songs, our Year 5 and 6 narrators used poetry to tell the story of the birth of Jesus. We were joined for the occasion by the Reverend Canon Hilary Barber, Vicar of Halifax Minster. The carol service was a great success and a wonderful way to end the autumn term. Thank you to parents and other family members for attending this service and well done to all the pupils and staff who performed and helped organise this special event.

Christmas Dinner at Siddal Primary School

Today we enjoyed our Christmas dinner. Accompanied by festive music and a marvellous Christmas tree, the food was fantastic. Merry Christmas everybody!

Do you want some stick insects?

Mr Battye currently has hundreds of stick insects to give away! Stick insects make great pets as they don’t take up much room and are easy to look after. If you would like to take up to 10 baby (nymph) stick insects home to keep, please instruct your child to collect a consent letter and factsheet. Please send the signed consent form back to school with a suitable container along with some privet leaves (privet bushes are abundant in our local area!). This container need not be the enclosure in which the stick insects will eventually be housed. Please see the images below for more information. Click on the images to enlarge. Thank you!

Christmas Tree Festival at Halifax Minster

Today pupils at Siddal Primary School attended the annual Christmas Tree Festival at Halifax Minster. The trees have been sponsored by different families and organisations from across the town. After learning about the significance of Christmas trees and the Christmas story from organiser Karen Lomas, we went on a Christmas tree hunt. Finally, we were asked to stand next to our favourite Christmas tree to have our photos taken. We all enjoyed attending this event and the Christmas trees look fantastic! Here are some pictures of our Year 3, 4 and 6 pupils. Click on the images to enlarge.
