    5th July 2018 - Green Lane Primary Academy

    This week Key Stage 1 children visited the Rainbow Factory in Pudsey.

    KS1 enjoyed a trip to the Rainbow Factory to investigate the case of the missing story staff. They used finger printing, e-fits and worked out the Gingerbread Man’s clues to find out who committed the crime. They also got to meet famous story characters like the Big Bad Wolf and the Fairy Godmother.

  • Inter-house football.

    29th June 2018 - Green Lane Primary Academy

    Inspired by the fantastic football we are being treated to at the World Cup in Russia, LKS2 held their inter-house football competition on Wednesday. There was some really good football played in some very warm conditions. It was great to see children revelling in the chance to play for their house - for many it was the first time they had done so this school year.

    The tournament saw all the houses play each other once and get 5 pts for a win, 3 for a draw and 1 for a loss.
