Year 1 Assembly
Our Year 1s performed brilliantly today in their ‘animal’ assembly doing an absolutely fabulous job of entertaining the whole school whilst sharing their learning with us.
The children sang songs in French, German, Spanish and Greek with the help of Madame Cheater and then wowed us with all of their fascinating facts about living things. I was incredibly proud of them all, they spoke really confidently and I could tell they really enjoyed sharing all of their knowledge with the school. Thank you to Mrs Wade, Miss Sellars, Mrs Thompson and Madame Cheater too!

World Book Day 2015
What a magical and exciting day we had in school yesterday celebrating World Book Day. The children and staff looked fantastic and really loved taking part in the enrichment day organised by Mrs Whittingham.
We started the day with a whole school assembly where we had a chance to admire all of the inventive and creative costumes that the children were dressed up in as well as a chance to sing ‘The World Book Day’ song.
The children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 were then mixed together into three groups and left the hall to start their world book day adventure followed shortly after by the children in Years 3,4,5,6 who had also been mixed up into four new groups. Each class teacher led a session with the different groups visiting them throughout the day.
The teacher led enrichment sessions were based upon one of their favourite books.

Deputy Lord Mayor’s Visit to Addingham
Last week, our School Council were invited to have lunch with the Deputy Lord Mayor when she visited Addingham. We had a wonderful time learning about how the council is organised and were privileged to be able to ask the Deputy Lord Mayor some questions.
Addingham Primary School Council
‘We have recently read that the Lord Mayor's charity appeal in Bradford is the 'Disability Sport and Pleasure' trust which helps to provide opportunities for a wide range of disabled people. As a school council we wondered what we could do to help support this work?’
‘We were interested to find out that you are a Bradford 'Street Angel' volunteer and we would like to ask you what this involves.’
‘What has been the hardest decision you have ever made?’
‘What is the difference between being a councillor and the Deputy Lord Mayor?’
‘What are your aspirations?’
‘Would you like to be the Lord Mayor in the future? Why?’
‘Can you tell us a little bit about your role as a councillor so we can see the similarities between your role and our school council?’
‘Do you have to wear a uniform?’
‘What do you do in your free time?’
‘Is it an enjoyable job? What is the most rewarding aspect of your work?’
‘We would love for you to come and visit our school and attend one of our school council meetings, would this be possible?’
Addingham Civic Society Feedback
‘So glad you could make it on Tuesday lunchtime. The children turned out to be quite a highlight! Their questions were brilliant.
Thanks for the effort you and Mrs Ellis put in to arrange it - much enjoyed by all, and the children behaved impeccably, well done them’
These are the prize winners in the Civic Society Poster Competition. The Theme was 'Tour de France through Addingham.'
Celebrating World Book Day
We celebrated World Book Day today with a special assembly. Children from all classes had brought in their favourite books. Some had written poems and journals. There was a theme of cycling in many of them in preparation for the Yorkshire Grand Depart in July which is coming past our school and through the village both days.
