 Year2 and 6 SATs


The children in Year 2 will take tests set by the government throughout May so it is vital that they are here every day so they do not miss them.

The children in Year 6 will take tests set by the government the week beginning 13th May. It is important that they are in school every day between now and then to give themselves the best chance of success.

 

School Meals


All children in Reception Class, Year 1 and Year 2 are eligible for a free school meal every day regardless of your household income.

This could save a family up to £420 a year.

If you would like your child to start school meals, please let the office know.

 

Year 5 Tag Rugby

Some of our Year 5 pupils took part in a Tag Rugby Tournament run by Leeds Rhinos and Active Leeds. As you can see by the photos, they all had lots of fun.

Important information for parents

 

Dear Parent/Carer,

 

I am writing to you as we have had an increased number of pupils coming

to school wearing smart watches. I understand that smart watches are now

a feature of modern society but the increasing sophistication of smart watch

technology presents a number of issues for schools.

 

The high value of many smart watches and the camera can lead to potential

child protection and data protection issues. Therefore, we have decided that

all smart watches should not be brought to school under any circumstances.

 

Please see below examples of smart watches that should not be worn in

school:

S watch         S watch 1

 

If you require any further clarification on this matter, please do not hesitate

to contact your classroom teacher.

 

Thank you for your ongoing support.

 

Kind regards, 

 

 

 

Mr M Lumb

 

Headteacher

Walking Bus


If you find getting the kids to school on a morning tough, why not bring them to our Walking Bus? It meets every day at 8.20am at Woodville Mount (opposite the Sorting Office) and our staff will walk your children safely to school for you. It is free and great excercise?

 

After-School Clubs


All of our After-School Clubs will begin again during the week beginning 21st January, except Ace Club, which will continue to run as normal every Friday. Look out for a letter on Friday 11th of January to see which clubs are available this Spring.

We are going Water Friendly

 

Hunslet Carr Primary School is going Water Friendly from this week

 

Before the summer holidays the teachers and the governors at school made the

decision that from this September children in school should drink cold, fresh water to

keep them hydrated throughout the day.

 

We thought this would be a great idea because when Year 5 and 6 took a healthy

lifestyle survey last June it showed we need to do more.

 

Children from Hunslet Carr

Children in the rest of Leeds

Drink at least 1 sugary drink a day

85%

75%

Drink 1 fizzy or energy drink a day

Brush their teeth twice a day

We also know that the time of the day when children are most likely to not follow the school rules is about an hour after lunch when the children’s bodies and brains find it hard to cope with the sugar leaving their system.

 

How will we help your children to make healthier choices…

 

From today, the children in the hall drinking water are being rewarded with house points or Good to be Green behaviour points to encourage healthy choices. We are also providing water on the table for all children at lunch, including the children who bring a packed lunch.

 

We hope you will support us in helping your children make healthy lifestyle choices.

 

 

 

Why Water?

 

How does drinking water link to health?

 

  • Drinking adequate amounts of water regularly throughout the day can protect health and contribute to well-being
  • Drinking adequate amounts of water can help prevent a range of short and long-term health problems from headaches, bladder, kidney and bowel problems to cancer
  • Water has none of the health problems associated with drinks containing sugar, additives, sweeteners, acids or caffeine

 

  How does drinking water improve learning?

 

  • Keeping well hydrated throughout the day can help to boost learning capacity
  • When we are thirsty, mental performance deteriorates by 10%
  • Drinking water has also been linked to improved behaviour and concentration in the classroom.

 

Why is water the best choice?

 

  • Sugar sweetened drinks can cause tooth decay
  • Fruit juice should can be a healthy choice but only when consumed with a meal and no more than 150ml per day
  • Too much sugar in the diet can contribute towards weight gain
  • Sugar free and diet drinks can still promote a sweet taste preference and some can be acidic, which causes tooth enamel to weaken
  • By implementing a water only policy for all pupils across the whole day, this will promote
  • equality and consistency across the school
  • Finally, drinking water will provide financial benefits for parents who will no longer need
  • to purchase drinks to include in lunch boxes.

 

 

Last Coals to Leeds

P1070126    P1070121    P1070125

 

This year sees the 50th anniversary of the closure of Middleton Broom Colliery, which was a major
 
part of the local community for over 100 years.

 

To commemorate this event, Leeds City Council and Middleton Railway Trust have organised a
 
series of events under the banner of “Last Coals to Leeds”, which has been funded by the Inner
 
South Community Committee led by local councillors Kim Groves, Judith Blake and Paul Truswell.

 

As part of this project, a booklet entitled “Middleton Broom Pit – Canaries and Ponies” has been
 
produced.
 
Some of our Year 5 pupils attended a  special ceremony and were presented with their books at
 
the Moor Road station at Middleton Railway.This was followed by a train ride on the railway to
 
Middleton Park, very close to where the Broom Colliery used to be.

Our Year 6 pupils attended their prom tonight and did us proud. They all looked fabulous in their prom suits and dresses. They danced and laughed the night away. In our eyes they are all prom kings and queens.

Election Day 2018

A huge well done to Leah Megan Sargent and Haruna Sonko, our new Head Boy and Girl for 2017/18.

Our Election Day Assembly was an exciting affair with a very special vistior. To read more and see more

photos from the day, visit our School Council Page.

 

Wear your colours day

Here at school, we are busy getting into a sporty mood with our sports days and the World Cup.

 

One person who is really looking ahead to a sporting challenge is Callum Rushworth in Year 5. Already

a multiple World Champion, he has been picked to represent England at the World Mixed Martial Arts

Championships later this year.

 

To help Callum with his expenses, we are asking all the children and staff to wear their favourite

sports kit on Tuesday 10th July and to make a small donation of 50p. We will also be selling buns at

playtime for 20p.

 

With our help Callum could retain his World title and prove Impossible really is Nothing!

 

High Expectations, Caring, Positive Attitudes and Successful (hopefully Callum can

be too!)

Faith and Culture Day


We celebrated Faith and Culture Day with some very special visitors. Iain Cunningham from West Grange Church came to talk to the children about Christianity. The children heard about the Bible and the life of Jesus. Year 3 made collages about Noah and discussed the 10 commandments and Year 4 researched religious symbols and investigated British Values.

Helen Michael from Sinai Synagogue visited Reception, Yr1 and Yr2. The children learnt about the Sabbath and why it is so important to Jewish families. They even got to taste the special Challah Bread

Yr1 continued their day by learning about other important festivals and celebrations, like Eid.

Yr2 designed their own covers for the Challah Bread using the Jewish symbols Helen had told them about.

Jodie ran a Bollywood dance workshop for Reception, Yr1, Yr2 and Yr3. Everyone enjoyed putting the dances together with the exciting music.

Adam ran a Gamelin workshop for Reception, Yr4, Yr5 and Yr6. It was very noisy but great fun. The children got to experience a completely different form of music

Nabilah Karim from Leeds Grand Mosque visited Yr5 and Yr6 earlier in the week, where Yr5 investigated geometric patterns and designed their own prayer mats. Yr6 investigated religious symbols and their meanings. Later on they used Venn diagrams to show the similarities and differences between a variety of faiths. They were glad to see so many similarities, especially regarding respect, tolerance, sharing and being kind to others.
