One of the main aims of our curriculum is to create aspirational learners that always strive to better themselves so that they can make a positive impact in their own community. We organise exciting cultural visits to inspire our pupils, giving them the opportunity to visit stimulating learning environments and to meet inspirational people. Some of our most recent cultural visits include:
- An art visit to the Lowry Art Centre in Salford, followed by a meal in China Town in Manchester.
- Afternoon tea in York and a tour of the historical sights.
- Winter sports visit to Xscape in Castleford to undertake skiing and tobogganing.
- Theatre trip to the Cinderella pantomime.
- Horse Riding
In September 2021, Mrs Butterworth launched the first Culture Competition of the academic year. Our challenge was to create an eco-code to help us gain the Bronze eco-mark.
Here are some of our winning entries:
Fourteen children won the competition, and took part in the special prize day linked to being eco-warriors. Firstly, we planted lots of bulbs in our school grounds. You will be able to enjoy them in the Spring time (March-April):
Then we helped our local community by collecting litter along Flanshaw Road and Batley Road. We collected nine bags worth of rubbish!
Then we went for lunch and enjoyed some delicious desserts! (especially Mr Woodburn)
Finally, we visited Pugney's Country Park, where we observed lots of different birds and animals in their natural habitats. Plus we played on the adventure playground:
A great day for our eco-warriors!
Look out for out half term two Culture Competition, which will be launched at the end of November...
You've got to be in it, to win it!
