Harry Gration and Amy Garcia

Great excitement after lunch today as Harry and Amy came past school on their tandem and stopped to talk to the children. Even better was when Look North was filmed live from the turning circle outside school and the KS2 school council got to meet them.

 

Deputy Lord Mayor Visits Addingham

 Deputy Lord Mayor’s Visit to Addingham

Last week our School Council were invited to have lunch with the Deputy Lord Mayor when she visited Addingham.We had a wonderful time learning about how the council is organised and were privileged to be able to ask the Deputy Lord Mayor some questions.

Addingham Primary School Council

‘We have recently read that the Lord Mayor's charity appeal in Bradford is the 'Disability Sport and Pleasure' trust which helps to provide opportunities for a wide range of disabled people. As a school council we wondered what we could do to help support this work?’

‘We were interested to find out that you are a Bradford 'Street Angel' volunteer and we would like to ask you what this involves.’

‘What has been the hardest decision you have ever made?’

‘What is the difference between being a councillor and the Deputy Lord Mayor?’

‘What are your aspirations?’

‘Would you like to be the Lord Mayor in the future? Why?’

‘Can you tell us a little bit about your role as a councillor so we can see the similarities between your role and our school council?’

‘Do you have to wear a uniform?’

‘What do you do in your free time?’

‘Is it an enjoyable job? What is the most rewarding aspect of your work?’

‘We would love for you to come and visit our school and attend one of our school council meetings, would this be possible?’

Addingham Civic Society Feedback

“So glad you could make it on Tuesday lunchtime. The children turned out to be quite a highlight! Their questions were brilliant.

Thanks for the effort you and Mrs Ellis put in to arrange it - much enjoyed by all, and the children behaved impeccably, well done them”


 

We celebrated Sports Relief today by having a non-uniform day. We dressed as a favourite sports personality, or in our own sports kit.

These are the prize winners in the Civic Society Poster competition. The theme was 'Tour de France Through Addingham'

Celebrating World Book Day

We celebrated World Book Day today with a special assembly. Children from all classes had brought in their favourite books. Some had written poems and journals. There was a theme of cycling in many of them in preparation for the Yorkshire Grand Depart in July which is coming past our school and through the village both days.
