HTAFC Football Competition

Congratulations to the boys that took
part in the football recently. We are lucky 
enough to have won and therefore get to 
represent Huddersfield Town and 
compete against premier league teams
around the country. 



The children each made a Christingle and went
to Saint Bart's church to sing their hearts out for
our Christingle service. As a class, we sung 'We wish
you a merry christmas'  in French, which the
children really enjoyed.



 Culture Day

On Tuesday 20th December, the
school celebrated different countries
from around the world. In our class,
we learnt about New Zealand. We
drew Maori pictures and in the
afternoon, we learnt the haka. 
Watch the video on the home page
to see us in action.


Year 6 Open Event

Wow - what an amazing event. Thanks to all of our parents
who supported us. We worked really hard to impress you with
our learning and we hope that you learned something new too. 
Your parental comments were lovely to read and it was clear that
we impressed you with our coding skills, our music and dance,
our cooking and our Egyptian and River knowledge.

Last Friday, we mummified fish - which was so cool but smelly!
We also looked at homework, there were some amazing projects. I especially liked William Morrissey's because he made a tomb with
a Mummy inside! On Wednesday we had our Open Event which
was about Egypt. We all had different stations like: scratch games,
lego building, making necklaces and food tasting. There were
loads of parents that came and we really enjoyed teaching them
about our topic. Also, we made our decorations for the school
Christmas tree. Our class made characters from the movie,
'The Christmas Carol' we made them out of pegs which was
a really cool idea. This Friday (1st of December!) We are
holding a Christmas fair, our class is creating Santa's Grotto,
me and Beth are being Santa's Elves. Hope to see you there! Bye.

This week we started to make our Death Masks. We had to make
them so we could be recognised in the Afterlife. It was amazing
working with mod-roc and we can't wait to see the finished products.

We also wanted to thank our parents for coming to our 'Workout for
Water' session. As well as it enjoying it immensely we raised enough
money for half a pump for an African village.

Egyptian Embassy Letter to the children 

Fish Mummification 


The fish was smelly and cold - but I LOVED IT! (Beth)

We cut the fish open and pulled out its organs - gross! (Amy)

I found the fish intestines, it was disgusting - yeak! (MIchel)

 Workout for Water Fundraiser 

Year 6 children have been fundraising. They were raising money for UNICEF by working together with Born to Move to provide water to villages, who don’t have access to water by providing pumps.   We raised £162.50 which is fantastic and will go towards the purchase of a water pump. The children invited their parents along for a born to move sessions, which they thoroughly enjoyed. 


PC Whitehouse talk on Anti-Bullying

The Year 5/6 children had a talk by PC Whitehouseto promote Anti-Bullying. This is to raise awareness of anti-bullying with the children. 

River Building

The children, in Geography, are learning all about rivers. They recently built their own rivers, in the school garden, during their outdoor learning time. The children thought it was great and wanted to stay out there all day. They all had an upper, middle and lower coarse and made some tributaries with water.



Born To Move

The children, in PE, are enjoying learning about health and fitness with Mrs Noonan. This is a great opportunity for the children to practise different styles of workouts and relaxation techniques.

WOW Wall

Jack has shown us a clip of his phenomenal gymnastic skills. 

If you are proud of anything extra curricular that you do, please bring it in to show off.  



A huge well done to the Y6 children that took part in the Primary Maths Challenge on Friday 17th November. The children tried so hard and, as a school, we are so proud of them!

  In Science, the children have been learning about the body.  They even had the chance to dissect a heart (cow's heart). Although they thought it wasn't pleasant, the children were fully intrigued. 



Village Walk

The children recently went on a Village Walk around Marsden. They had to find clues based on the Marsden landmarks. They thoroughly enjoyed their trip, courtesy of Lisa, and couldn't wait to answer the questions. 


The children had a fantastic time at Robinwood this year. They all took part in a number of different activities, such as: canoeing, raft building, trapeze, climbing, caving, zipwire, giant swing, knights quest, archery, piranha pool, obstacle course, etc. 

The children were a delight and represented to school tremendously! 









The children are loving our new book corner, where they are able to sit and read. 

 Fidget Spinner Investigation

In Science, the children were investigating fidget spinners and which type spun the longest. They found that the heavier the fidget spinner, the longer it spun. After that, they had the opportunity to create their own fidget spinner. 




A big ‘HELLO’ from me, Mrs. Wood. I’m really excited to be working together with the support of Mrs. Garside, Mrs. Burhouse and Mrs. Pollard. The majority of teaching, during the morning, will be through team teaching, where we can target children, using teacher intervention. The children will have Miss Adamson for Literacy and myself for Maths.

All the children have settled into their classes very well and are enthusiastic and raring to go, which is great to see. If you have any issues or concerns, please do not hesitate to make an appointment with me. Alternatively, send me an email to or Mrs Adamson at
