Wise Owls visit to school 

The pupils  were given the opportunity to find out about habitats and  food sources of the owl. The older children leant about the evolution of the owl too. 

Our Whole School Pilgrimage

To Celebrate God's Gift of Water

We all enjoyed our trip to Blackmoorfoot Reservoir and we used it as a stimulus for some quality writing.

Scarecrow Trail

Each class made a film-themed scarecrow to 'hide' around Linthwaite and discover, as a fun holiday activity for our families. Can you guess which film Y5 chose?

Curry making

As part of Y5's British Empire topic they researched food of the Commonwealth and then planned and made their own curry.

Bagshaw Museum Egyptian day

Year Three saw Egyptian mummies and enjoyed a history-packed day including mummifying a class member!

Oakwell Hall Tudor Life

Year Five spent a day undertaking various cooking, writing, artefact handing and games activities in the amazing Tudor mansion Oakwell Hall.


MP Jason McCartney's visit

MP Jason McCartney visited school to meet our School Council and help them plant a tree, one of fifteen donated by charity The Woodland Trust. Pupils had written to the MP inviting him to conduct the tree-planting ceremony, as part of the national Queen's Green Canopy initiative celebrating the Jubilee.

World Book Day 

We reviewed books, had a whole school 'Guess Who?' quiz, a handwriting competition and designed our own favorite book covers. 


We were the first school in Kirklees to receive the BRONZE award and now have achieved GOLD status. Well done everyone! 

Y6 Bikeability 

Y6 pupils undertook 'Bikeability' training to ensure that they are all safe and confident when riding around our local area.

Whole School Health and Wellbeing

This special day went ahead despite the school closure due to coronavirus. We decided it was more important than ever to focus on our mental health and wellbeing.  Activities focussed on feeling good about ourselves,  relaxation, having fun and sharing with others. 

Internet safety week 

Children told us they learnt lots! Older pupils focused on the dangers of social media and the younger pupil on the dangers of sharing information. These are our poster competition winners...
