Proposal to Increase Primary School Places within the Alwoodley area


Proposal to increase primary school places within the Alwoodley area

Leeds City Council is consulting on a proposal to expand Allerton Church of England Primary School from a capacity of 420 to 630 pupils by permanently increasing the admission limit in reception from 60 to 90 pupils from September 2018. The consultation period commences on Monday 26 June 2017 and closes on Friday 21 July 2017 at 4pm. During this time we will be having some drop-in sessions at the school for parents, carers and residents to learn more about the proposal and ask any questions they may have. The format of the drop-in sessions is informal, with officers from the Sufficiency and Participation (school place planning), Built Environment and Highways teams in attendance to discuss any queries you may have about the proposals. You may attend any of the drop-in sessions between the start and finish times.

Meetings details:

Drop-in session dates and times:

Monday 26 June 5pm-7pm

Monday 3 July 8.30am-9.30am

Thursday 13 July 2.45pm-4pm

Bombay Potatoes and Bug Biscuits!

3DC made pear and strawberry crumbles.

3WB cooked Bombay potatoes with FFS ingredients.

They invited their classmates to the cafe to try their dish.

Which was given the ‘thumbs up’!

RLS joined me this week to bake for their celebration event.

We baked some caterpillar cookies.

And some shortbread to make into ladybirds.

It was very exciting.

And we can’t wait until next Friday!

Adventures at Harlow Carr Gardens

Today we have had a great trip to Harlow Carr Gardens to support our learning about plants in science.  In the morning we had a plant workshop.  We found out about the different parts of a flower and their roles.  After that we played a team game, where we pretended to be bees pollinating flowers.  Then we took a stroll round the gardens and collected different parts of the flowers to add to a ‘scrap book’ page.  When we got back to the classroom we labelled the different parts that we had found.

We enjoyed lunch in the lodge, before heading back out to explore the gardens in our groups.  Surprisingly, we found the playground and I was really impressed with the team game of hide and seek tig that the children decided to play!  What a fabulous day.  Well done Year 3!

RSPB Visit

The class enjoyed a visit from the RSPB on Tuesday.  We found out lots of information about the work they do.  We explored the school grounds to carry out a ‘Bio Blitz’ and spotted a Red Kite, millipedes, woodlice, ladybirds and snails (to name but a few!)
