Year 6 Leavers Assembly

Today our Year 6 pupils said their final farewell to Siddal Primary School as they move on to their respective high schools. In time honoured fashion, this moment was marked by the Year 6 Leavers Assembly. A smorgasbord of songs, dancing and comedy, the performance left the audience in tears of laughter as well as tears of sadness. It was a terrific assembly! Well done to all of our Year 6 pupils! You smashed it! Good luck for the future and don’t forget to come back and see us all!

End of Year Honours Assembly

In this special assembly, the hard work and many talents of pupils in each year group was recognised and rewarded. It was a tough job for teachers to decide the recipients as there was so many worthy pupils to choose from! This assembly also marked the final visit of the Reverend Linda Maslen in her current capacity as curate of St. Mark’s Church, Siddal. We will miss the Reverend Linda and her dog Dougal! Well done to all our award winners!

Reverend Linda’s Last Assembly at Siddal Primary School

Today the Reverend Linda Maslen delivered her final assembly at Siddal Primary School. She is leaving St. Mark’s Church, Siddal in order to set up a new church in the centre of Bradford. Reverend Linda has visited our school on countless occasions since arriving at St. Mark’s in 2017 and has helped us celebrate important Christian festivals as well as delivering many amazing assemblies and after-school clubs. Her enthusiasm and energy will be missed! We are very sorry to see her go and wish her good luck in her exciting new position. We will get a chance to say a final goodbye when she attends our end of year honours assembly this Thursday. Meanwhile, here’s some photos of today’s assembly with the Reverend Linda leading the singing and dancing!

Key Stage 1 and 2 Sports Day

Today we held our annual sports day at Siddal Cricket Club. Attended by parents and other family members, pupils took part in a series of sporting events in their year groups. Everybody tried their best and a good time was had by all! Well done to everyone! Here’s some photos of some of our competitors (including some very competitive members of staff during the tug-of-war!).

Meet the Teacher event at Siddal Primary School

Today pupils, parents and other family members had the opportunity to meet the class teachers ahead of the new academic year. Attendees were provided with food and drink as they completed a quiz matching the teachers with little known facts about their lives! This was followed with several rounds of bingo with the lucky winners receiving goody bags. It was a great event enjoyed by all!

Tough Mudder at Siddal Primary School

Today our sports coach Max organised a Tough Mudder event for children in Key Stage 2. Pupils were required to negotiate a series of obstacles around the school grounds, some of them very muddy! Tough Mudder provided pupils an opportunity to try a new experience, build resilience and stamina and develop social skills. It was also great fun! Here’s some pictures of some of our pupils completing the course.

Olympic athlete James Kirton comes to Siddal Primary School

Former Great British Olympic Swimmer James Kirton visited Siddal Primary School today. James represented Great Britain in the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games in the Mens 200m Breaststroke. Today he visited our school to lay down a challenge… complete his fitness circuit to raise sponsorship for our school and other sporting charities. Every year group took part and worked up a sweat! James then delivered an inspirational assembly by explaining how being an Olympian didn’t come easy – it took years of dedication and hard work. Thank you to parents and other family members who have already sent in sponsorship money.
