Restorative Practice Development Day

On Monday 20th March we held our second Restorative Practice Development Day. There were visitors from Darton College, Brigshaw High School and Wetherby Young Offenders Institute.

The visitors sat with certain Coaching groups in the morning and had a tour of the school before meeting with a selection of our Restorative Practice pupils.
Pupils spoke to the visitors about Coaching, Character for Learning, Crew Characteristics and how Restorative Practice benefits them being representatives and the school on a whole.

The visitors were very impressed with our school and RP pupils and had a very informative day.

Thank you to all pupils involved.

Leeds Wall Climbing Competition

On Monday 20th March, 7 pupils took part in the Leeds Wall School Climbing Competition.

In the over 14 boys competition, Ian (Year 11) came 3rd and Adam (Year  10) came 1st overall.

We took a very young team and everyone had a great time and gave it their best.

Well done to all pupils involved for their fantastic efforts on the day.

 

Trampolining Competition

On Monday 20th March, the Key Stage 3 trampolining team, which consists of Riley, India, Gemma and Ellie, travelled to Huddersfield Leisure Centre for the West Yorkshire Games.

All competitors completed the same set routine to a great standard with Ellie leading from the off. The pressure seemingly increased in the more difficult voluntary routines but all pupils showed great courage in-front of around 150 spectators and competitors.

A big 'well done' to the four squad members.

BBC School Report

This year we were involved with the BBC School Report, where our Year 7 pupils created their own news recordings and articles which were sBBC News School Report logo rectanglehared by the BBC on their dedicated School Report page.

Pupils were given a selection of topics, such as Brexit, the Donald Trump travel ban and social media, or they could choose their own issues they felt passionate about to report on. It gave pupils the opportunity to make the news for real and develop their journalistic skills by interviewing each other and working to tight deadlines.

Last year over 1000 schools took part from across the UK with the BBC hosting the content on their website.

Please visit the BBC School Report page for more information and to see our pupils work. You can also see our pupils videos and articles on the BBC School Report section of our website here.

World Book Day

World Book Day was celebrated on Thursday 2nd March and our Primary Phase pupils came dressed up as their favourite book characters. Pupils and their parents/carers put a lot of effort into their costumes and they all looked amazing.

We had Peter Pan, The Gruffalo and Hermione Granger in school to name just a few!

Pupils also attended a 'book at bedtime' event where they came to school in the evening dressed in their pyjamas and were told some lovely stories from our Primary Phase teachers.

Year 1 1960’s Dress

Year 1 pupils’ big learning project this half term has been ‘Would The Beatles Have Won The X-Factor?

Pupils came to school in 1960’s clothing and experienced what life was like in the 1960’s. They were transported back to events such as England winning the World Cup and the first man landing on the moon. Year 1 have been really ‘getting into the groove’ with their new topic and discovered lots interesting facts about The Beatles.

Table Tennis

On Wednesday 18th January the Year 8 and 10 boys travelled to the final table tennis competition of the year at Cardinal Heenan. Both teams had some great individual performances and won their first match. In the final match of the Year 10 game, Allerton Grange were the only opponents who stood in our way from gaining a place at the Leeds Schools Finals in February.

The final score in the match was 10-9 meaning that we drew on matches won overall. We had to wait to see if we qualified, and thankfully the next day it was confirmed that the boys had made it through to the Leeds finals on Thursday 9th February!

The boys, who are actually Year 9 pupils playing against Year 10 teams, came 3rd overall at the finals so it was a fantastic effort and we are really proud of their achievements. As they were playing up a year group, we will have the opportunity to compete in the competition again next year.

Rudding Park Cream Tea

On Monday 6th February, the winners from our Year 9 Study School of Industry were treated to an afternoon of 'Cream Tea' at Rudding Park Hotel.
During the Study School Showcase, pupils in the Year 9 School of Industry were presenting their business models to fellow pupils and staff.

The winners from the event were treated to as much as they could eat at Rudding Park Hotel, ranging from a variety of sandwiches, to scones with jam and cream and an amazing assortment of cakes!

Afterwards they were then treated to a visit to the kitchen to meet some of the chefs.

It was a lovely afternoon and a well deserved treat for the pupils.

Vista Live Brief

Well done to all pupils who attended the 'Vista Live Brief' challenge on Friday 3rd February. Carr Manor Community School had two teams, and pupils were working against Lightcliffe Academy, Roundhay School and Leeds City Academy.

One teams event brief was to organise BBC Radio 1's Big Weekend whilst the other pupils had to organise the Season of Sound festival.

Whilst planning, pupils had to consider how advertising, weather and security can all effect the events.

Well done to the group who organised BBC Radio 1's Big Weekend for coming 1st place, and the group who organised the Season of Sound festival came 2nd! We couldn't have asked for better results!

We are extremely proud of both groups and well done for your fantastic involvement on the day!
