Pinnochio Theatre Production - 8th February 2016

Children in school were delighted to be treated to a pantomime version of ‘Pinocchio’.

The stage setting, lighting and sound effects gave the children a fabulous insight into the world of theatre.  The excellent actors and actresses have provided our children with role models for story-telling and drama. We hope to see some stars of our own in future learning!

Quotes from children:

It made me feel sad when I thought Pinocchio had died when he drowns. I nearly cried.

It was good because the characters were just like the ones in the story I read.

I wondered how the puppet turned into a boy, then a puppet and then a boy again. It was strange!

They did funny dances like street dance. It was good.

I liked it because there was only 1 bad character and lots of good ones.

Lampwick was really cool.

It was funny but then it went serious and sad and I didn’t like it because I thought Pinocchio had died, but in the end it was happy.

RSPB Birdwatch - 28th and 29th January 2016

Children in school and their families enjoyed 2 days bird-watching in our school grounds and the local area. Thank you to everyone who supported us, especially our Year 1 families who didn't let the very heavy rain stop them from coming along to help. We are grateful to Groundwork and Living Streets who helped us in securing a grant to buy more rain suits.  Click into the Learning Links tab for each year group and then in the Gallery for more photos.

Go Walking Project

With our Partners, Groundwork, we opened up our school grounds for Autumn activities in the outdoors.  We were overwhelmed with the fantastic turn out of 87 parents, pupils, ex-pupils and younger brothers and sisters. After the success of this event, we hope to organise more. Other local places where our parents can go to be active are: East Ardsley Reservoir, Caulms Wood, Oakwell Hall, Pugneys Country Park, Newmiller Dam, Judy Woods, Yorkshire Sculpture Park, Cannon Hall, Dewsbury and Batley Park.

January 2016

We have secured a grant to help us buy more waterproof clothing for children in Y1 and Y2 so that bad weather does not prevent us from working outside.  Our next event involving Groundwork and parents  will be 28th and 29th January to prepare for the RSPB Garden Watch weekend.

 

Message from Mrs Drury, our Headteacher

"Working together, valuing and nurturing children"

Welcome!! Shaw Cross Infant and Nursery is a friendly and caring school. Our staff and governors take pleasure and pride in helping children to develop into confident and happy learners. We take our responsibility very seriously as we want to give children the best possible start to their education and equip them with the knowledge, skills and attitudes to succeed in their future lives. We strive to ensure that children have a broad range of experiences and take every opportunity to involve them in the wealth of cultural experiences available to us in our country.   We firmly believe that education is a partnership between home and school. We place a strong emphasis on developing the personal well being of each child as we feel that this provides the foundation for successful learning. We have developed strong links with other agencies and organsitions including our colleagues at the Chickenley, Earlsheaton and Shaw Cross Children's Centre and Stay n Play Childcare to support us in our work. We liaise closely with local schools as we believe by working together we can make a positive impact on the lives of the children, young people and their families within our community.  Stay n Play now offer free nursery places for eligible two year olds on our site. Click here for more information.

We hope that these pages will be informative and provide you with a taste of what we have to offer.
