  • Inter-house football

    18th July 2018

    Wednesday last week saw the final inter-house competition of the year, the UKS2 football! It was wonderful to see lots of children representing their house.  Like the World Cup in Russia, there were some high scoring matches with four goals being scored in four of the matches. The scoring system was the same as in previous competitions: 5 points for a win, 3 for a draw and 1 for a defeat. Here are the results:

  • Choir

    17th July 2018

    It has been another fantastic year for music at our school. I was thrilled to see how far the musicians have come when I saw them perform at the concert. This is down to a lot of hard work and a passion for music so they should be very proud of themselves. The choir have had their busiest year yet. We started off with the Christmas concert and then sang for the church and the community during the Spring Term. Summer came and we were fortunate enough to be asked to sing in the Big Sing at Leeds Town Hall whi

  • Lacrosse

    16th July 2018

    LKS2 parents and children had a fantastic time on Friday morning with Lacrosse England coach Kerrie Lawler. She taught parents and children how to hold a lacrosse stick, scoop it off the floor, pass and shoot! It was a brilliant energetic, fast paced session thoroughly enjoyed by all! A big thanks to Kerrie for giving our children the chance to try the great sport of lacrosse for the first time. Thanks to all the parents who came - it gave us adults a good workout!!

    'Never cross on a corner,' said Ebony.

  • Y4 Skipping final

    11th July 2018

    Y4 Skipping finals!

    When we arrived at Leeds Beckett University, we realised how well we had done just to reach the finals!

    Nervously, our team completed their individual skipping tasks and then came the skip dance, which was to the Greatest Show.  We did amazing and although we didn’t win, we came third in the skip dance.  The children should be so proud of themselves, as they were extremely well behaved and put on ‘The Greatest Show!’

    James said ‘Skipping was very enjoyable and it was an incredible experienc

  • Sports Days

    8th July 2018

    We were treated to some wonderful competition last week at both the KS1 and KS2 Sports Days. It was great to see the children performing to such a high standard. They had been practising all the skills they were going to need in P.E lessons in the weeks leading up to the big days. The high temperatures on both days added an extra challenge for the children taking part but they dealt with the conditions very well and sensibly. Thank you to all parents/carers and grandparents for coming to support and of cour

  • KS1 trip

    5th July 2018

    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.

    Lola – “It was great! I liked it when we met Olga Von Badlass."

    UKS2 parents and children enjoyed a wonderful morning in the sun on Friday trying American football. Chris Jones, from NFL UK, came to lead the 45 minute session. Children and parents got to learn how to tackle, throw and catch an American football. There was a wonderful atmosphere as parents and children spent time together taking part in sport. A big thanks to Chris for a super morning - we all (parents and staff member especially) had a blast. After the game at the end I am sure many of us will be hobbli

  • Inter-house football.

    29th June 2018

    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.

    On Monday 18th June, Mrs Coates held a General Knowledge quiz for KS2! Two children (one boy and one girl) were selected to take part in the quiz.

  • KS1 Football

    On Monday 18th June our KS1 football squad attended the Garforth Schools Football Tournament. It was the first time we've taken two teams to the competition which was exciting. The children had trained hard for sometime prior to match day and really enjoyed the opportunity to compete against other local schools. Both of our two teams played with great spirit and determination - they never let their heads go down whatever the score was. Lots of great goals were scored and there was also some super defending.

  • School Games Day

    Wednesday 20th June was School Games Day at Green Lane. The day was designed to be a celebration of P.E learning during the year. With a carousel set up, children were able to try a range of different sporting activities. It was great to have the whole school involved from EYFS to Year 6 - the playing fields were packed full with physically active Green Laners everywhere you looked!

    Early Years had lots of balancing and stability challenges to do in a specially set up obstacle course. They showed brilliant c
