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.
Drop-in session dates and times:
Monday 26 June 5pm-7pm
Monday 3 July 8.30am-9.30am
Thursday 13 July 2.45pm-4pm
To find out more about the proposal and how you can have your say, please pick up a copy of the consultation document from the school office, download it from here or visit the following websites from June 2017
We are enjoying our class novel SO MUCH that we decided to use it as inspiration for our writing today. We looked at the paragraph from the chapter the terrible shovels and found evidence that tells us how the foxes were feeling. We were great detectives and found lots of evidence that we used to think about what it must mean, well done 👍2SB

This week we’ve been looking at writing playscripts. We’ve used the traditional stories of jack and Jill and jack and the beanstalk to explore the speech used between the characters. We then wrote up a scene from jack and the beanstalk including all efeatures of a playscript:
– cast list
– setting description and scene details
– name of scene
– character in margin
– stage directions in brackets ( )
Ethan swapped chairs for the teaching chair this morning and spoke to us all about the history of Independnece day! Thank you Ethan! 😀
Our Super Nature Sleuths have been exploring some of the trees in our school grounds where Arron found an incredible number of caterpillars. They are in seven of the trees and they have woven huge nets to protect themselves. The trees look absolutely amazing with all the white netting hanging from the trunk and branches.
We think that the caterpillars may be the larvae of the Ermine Moth but we will have to wait until they emerge to find out. More Nature Sleuthing needed!
Please do take some time to look at the year 2 non negotiables… these are what we must know confidently and independently by the end of the year. I wonder which ones you will practise over the holidays!
Good Luck year 2!
Keep me updated with how you get on!
