Quarry Mount's first parent coffee afternoon was very successful with 14 parents (both Mums and Dads) attending! We talked about volunteering and training opportunities as well as about what they would like to see from their community and how we can support them to help achieve what they want from the coffee afternoons. Our second afternoon saw us focus on mindfulness to mark World Mental Health Day. Parents expressed an interest in Art Therapy as well as meeting with a Community PCSO to discuss social issues and these sessions are due to take place in the coming coffee afternoons-all parents and carers welcome! The coffee afternoons are held fortnightly on a Wednesday at 2:45pm
Thank you to Adanna, Joshua,Kiera and Shara for carrying our school banner in the 'Pitch Parade' at half time at the match between Rhinos and St Helens on evening of Friday 3 July. A big thank you also to their parents for being so supportive.
On Wednesday 11th March, the great and the good of the mathematics world joined together to compete in the inaugural Quarry Mount Multiplication Medallists Competition. The competition proved to be a tense affair, with lots of close battles against some superb mathematicians - a packed audience of children and staff were on tenterhooks as the drama gathered pace. Eventually, winners were crowned and challengers fell at the final hurdle. However, there were no tears or tantrums and every competitor was very supportive of their opponents. WELL DONE GUYS! I would like to say a big thank you to the medallists, audience and Rooa for taking the pictures; you all played your part in this brilliant event. All that's left to say is get practising kids...you may find yourself in the hotseat at the next competition! Congratulations to our winners, who were... LKS2 Bronze - Hanin (Y4) LKS2 Silver - Giovanni (Y2) LKS2 Gold - Maryam (Y3) LKS2 Platinum - Adnan (Y4) UKS2 Bronze - Charlie (Y5) UKS2 Silver - Yosan (Y5) UKS2 Gold - Tigran (Y5) UKS2 Platinum - Kadija (Y6) Mr Hunter
Children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 worked together to retell the events of the Christmas story using drama and song. We were so pleased so many parents were able to join us at this joyous occasion.
The children in Years 5 and 6 performed their own version of 'Alice in Wonderland.' Alice (or was it Rooa) met a variety of wierd and wonderful characters on her travels through Woodhouse, including crazy caterpillars, disco divas and brilliant basketballers.
On Saturday, Miss Myers and three lucky children went into Leeds City Centre to watch the Grand Depart of the Tour De France! It was a great day, there were thousands of people lining the streets, but Miss Myers, Raqib (Y4), Lavell (Y4) and Ruell (Y2) luckily got to sit in some special seats - the VIP Grandstand area - they had the best view in the city! Here is a look at some of the pictures where you can see just how close they were to the action and some of the fun they had.
