A Busy Start

We are now ready to break up for two weeks half term, the first part of the autumn term seems to have gone very quickly. It has been a busy few weeks  across school, we have taken part in ‘No Pens ‘day, celebrated harvest with families at St Mathews church, raised money for the breast cancer care unit at Halifax hospital as well as class trips .

Year 6 impressed everyone with their whole class assembly on Roald Dahl celebrating 100 years of his books and rhymes whilst the children in our Early Years were kept entertained by Mrs Molly and her story time sessions.

This week everyone in school thoroughly enjoyed the African rhythms and dance grooves bought to us by Drumroots as part of our work to celebrate black history month. The musicians were very impressed by pupils confidence and musical ability as well as the warm welcome they gave to the visitors.

A big thank you to all the parents and extended family members who have helped us in school over the least few weeks and families for their on-going support.

The blog is now working again and we hope you  enjoy looking at the class blogs to see what has been happening across school. We have introduced some new things over the last few weeks including our new ‘Golden Rules ‘ you will see the posters up  around school. There are golden rules for playtime too and these are also displayed around school. Children throughout school are being given golden tickets for making good choices, being kind , caring and helpful and having a positive attitude . Tickets are drawn in Praise assembly on Friday morning and pupils can choose their own prize. We are keeping a record of who is given golden tickets and a merit system is being developed with the school council .

Lunchtime helpers look really smart in their new outfits ,they help in the hall at lunchtime and together with our team of play leaders work alongside staff to provide help and many activities at lunchtimes for pupils across school.

We have also changed the format of our Friday praise assemblies, come along to one and let us know what you think.

We have sent out a list of diary dates this week and look forward to seeing you a the events in school over the coming weeks.

Blog update

As you may have realised there’s been a few problems with the blog the last 2 weeks. It started off with teachers not being able to upload photos, and then people have not been able to view the blog at all.

Luckily we have now managed to fix it! It’s got a new look now so is slightly different.


We’re looking forward to getting back to blog-business as usual and keeping you all up to date.


Please let us know if you spot any problems in the future

A Busy Week

We have had a busy week here at Field Lane . Pupils in Y2 and Y6 are working hard as they prepare for their SAT tests which will be taking place over the next few weeks. Our Eco club have decided that they would like to plant an orchard here at Field Lane ,they had the idea after we found out about Earth Day on 22nd April, this aim of the day was to encourage people to plant trees. We are looking forward to growing fruit and been able to make jam in the future here in school. To raise funds to buy the trees and fruit bushes the Eco club organised and ran a cake stall in school this week and raised over £200.

Friday was the ‘International Day of Dance and to celebrate everyone has taken part in the dance workshops , pupils have been finding out about different dances from around the world and have also made paella. We will be continuing the international theme throughout the Summer as we look forward to the Olympics and world cup.

Our ‘Seeds from Space Project’, is going well , some of the seeds have germinated and have started to grow . We will keep you informed as the project continues.

Super science


Our science week was a great success across school with al pupils taking part in daily science activities. Science lessons for older pupils were based in a ‘Crime Scene Investigation ‘ context. Pupils across school had been asked what science they would like to do and were pleased that teachers did give them these opportunities. ‘ I couldn’t believe that we actually all got to make and launch our rockets , I didn’t think Miss Hoyle would do this in school! ‘ Nathan Copp in Y5

Thank you to the ‘Field Lane Association of Parents and Staff’ who helped us to purchase extra resources for the Science week.

All Year 5 pupils recently too part in two days of Bike ability training .We were all really impressed with their determination to pass  the assessments . Bike ability staff were very pleased with the engagement and positive attitude of the pupils .There are more courses available at the fire station in Halifax and Illingworth over the Easter and Summer holidays , you will need to contact 01422 392800  for more information.


Assemblies this week

We have had two interesting class assemblies this week On Tuesday both Y2/3 classes re-enacted the legend about a small boy called Arthur becoming King by removing a sword from a stone. Y2/3 children impressed everyone with their drama and narration skills. At the end of the week pupils who recently went on our first residential trip to London shared their experiences with families and the rest of school complete with a detailed slideshow .  We have already booked our next trip to London for Summer 2017. Look out for the London display which will be put up in school shortly.
