  • Saving Water with Severn Trent!

    3rd June 2015 - Wainwright Primary Academy

    Year 1 had a visit from Severn Trent Water where they learnt all about how to save water!

    The children learnt that:

    • You should wash your car using a sponge and bucket instead of a hose pipe.
    • When you have a bath, only fill it up to your belly button – not your chin!
    • Always remember to turn the taps off!
    • Only put toilet roll down the toilet – not baby wipes.
    • Don’t spend more than 4 minutes in the shower.


    Take a look at the photographs they took.

  • Caffiene & Sugar Dangers!

    2nd June 2015 - Strand Primary Academy

    Is has been noted that some children are arriving at school after consuming high sugar and high caffiene drinks for breakfast.

    We ask that children only have low sugar drinks such as, fresh juice, milk, tea or water before school. The dangers of drinking high sugar drinks can have the following health implications:

    • One soft drink a day increases Type 2 diabetes risk by a fifth.
    • Drinking high sugar drinks can cause obesity, heart disease, cancers, fatty liver disease, dementia and heart problems.
    • Sugar from high

  • Swap Shop Open for Business!

    1st June 2015 - England Lane Academy

    As part of our new, updated behaviour policy we operate a 'swap shop' in school.

    All children earn smiley face points throughout the day. These are recorded in the classroom and on a computer based programme. The points are earned for attendance, punctuality and displaying any of our LEARNER behaviours.

    If children don't show these they get sad face points which are taken off of their total. As the week and term progress the points accumulate and, once they have enough, children can swap their points for priz

  • The Works Skatepark

    26th May 2015 - The South Leeds Academy

    Keeping fit and healthy is important for all young people, so to encourage our students to stay active whist on    holiday, the  academy organised several trips to The Works Skatepark during the Easter break. During the practical sessions, the group enjoyed charging around the park on BMXs, skateboards and scooters. Out of breathe, but still lively, the group then learnt about the dangers of drugs and  alcohol in the classroom-based activities.  Well done to the group of girls who had 100% attendance.

    Musical talent came to the fore when Brigg students took important examinations.

    Jayne Keeler, Curriculum Leader for Music, said: “Students of woodwind, brass and piano worked incredibly hard to gain distinctions, with marks of more than 130.

  • Reduced Shakespeare Company

    22nd May 2015 - De Warenne Academy

    A group of students went to local theatre Cast in May to see the Reduced Shakespeare Company's new play "The art of comedy". The group enjoyed a show full of fun and laughter. The energetic physical style of the piece really inspired the students to use this style in their own work. They were even lucky enough to meet the cast after the show!

  • Inter House Rounders Tournament

  • Butterflies!

    22nd May 2015 - Grange Lane Infant Academy

    In nursery we have been reading 'The Very Hungry Caterpillar' and learning about the life cycle of a butterfly. We have watched our 5 tiny caterpillars make cocoons and turn into beautiful butterflies. On Friday we set the butterflies free. They flapped their wings and flew away. One butterfly landed on Miss Drury's hand and another landed on a flower. We hope the butterflies will lay more eggs and start the life cycle all over again.
