Thank you HelloHipHop for an inspiring singing assembly - teaching us the different elements of HipHop. The main take home message - express yourself!

We were entertained with beatboxing, rapping, vinyl, graffiti and dance! Please ask the children about how amazing Phil was - remember kids, eat your vegetables (another take home message from the assembly).

Today we were visited by Conrad Burdekin; a poet and author from West Yorkshire.
He shared some of his poems with us and then we joined in with some hilarious performance poetry.
Conrad then helped us to write some of our own poetry, we tried Limerick style poetry as well as list poems.

It's a close battle for the top this week!

Access some free Leeds ghost stories!

It's now only 1 week until the launch of the FREE Leeds United Centenary story written by the fantastic Tom Palmer- the same author who wrote Loidis, Ledes, Leeds!

From 14th-18th October, a new chapter will be released each morning for you to read - www.tompalmer.co.uk/leeds-SLS


 

Kofi, Meera and Tom are on a school trip to Elland Road. But only one of them supports Leeds United. When they start an argument about Leeds' football club and the city itself, they are visited by a mystery ghost, who sets them challenges to guide them through Leeds United's centenary week. A week that will make them rethink their city and its football team. Celebrating the rich multicultural history of Leeds and how Elland Road has done its bit for internationalising the city, will the trio meet all their challenges and find out who their ghost really is?

Click on the year group you have just finished and bring in as many of the answers as possible on a sheet of paper. You can do one question or all the questions! There will be some prizes for children who return their work in September.

There will be prizes awarded to children who achieve the most points on TT Rockstars over the summer holidays. Miss Armitage will check the results in September.
