Reaching new heights!

Rhino class had a great PE session on Monday developing their strength, balance and co-ordination.

Tudor Rose

Here are just a few examples of the amazing Tudor Roses made in clay.

The children worked hard to incorporate all the detail on their design.

Well Done Year 4

Thank you to all the parents and carers that came to watch our class assembly last week. The children were delighted to be able to share all the information they found out with you and the rest of the school.

We appreciate your continued support and Mrs. Braime and I are very proud of the children and how well they preformed. Keep it up year 4.

The Thackray Medical Museum

Last week year 4 visited the Thackray Medical Museum in Leeds. The children were lucky enough to take part in two different workshops based around life as a Tudor.

This proved to be the perfect opening to our new topic on Henry VIII. The children came backed bursting with knowledge and hungry to find out more.


Well done Year 4.

Battle of Bosworth Field!

Attention all of Siddal, today Year 3 have witnessed a nail biting scene from The Battle of Boswarth – The War of the Roses.

Rhino class were split in half to represent the two families that went head to head in this battle.

The Lancastrians (Red Rose)were led by Mrs. Newham, aka Henry VII. They were against the Yorkists (White Rose) led by Miss Sunderland, aka Richard III.

Rhino class witnessed an epic battle where sadly, Richard III (Miss Sunderland) perished!

We then saw Henry VII marry Elizabeth of York to unite the families and bring the two roses together, making the Tudor Rose.  

Friend or Foe

This week, Year 5 have been exploring the text Friend or Foe by Michael Morpurgo.  Today’s session focused on David and Tucky’s dilemma (hiding two German airmen during the war) and whether they should tell the person who was looking after them or continue to keep it a secret.  Here you can see our pupils in role as they prepare a new scene for the book.


Outdoor learning

Elephant class had a fantastic morning searching for Pokémon in the playground. The children used their knowledge of addition and subtraction of 4 digit numbers to complete Pokémon word problems.

Tin forest

The class are very excited to start their new literacy unit based around the story The Tin Forest by Helen Ward.

Yesterday, the children created an amazing piece of artwork with oil pastels, using only a section of the text.

Today the children used their knowledge of the authors use of language and an illustration, to predict the next part of the story.

Self Sustainable Siddal

Eco council had an amazing afternoon yesterday digging up and cooking their potatoes. The children grew two types of potatoes; rocket and regional. The children also had the pleasure of picking some of the peapods that were ready.

After cooking the potatoes with Mrs. Harper our Eco warriors were given the opportunity to taste them and then kindly brought them around the school to allow other adults and children to sample their home grown produce.

Tudor workshop-update

Here are a few pictures from Mondays workshop. As you can see we all had an amazing time learning all about Tudor time.
