Proposal to Increase Primary School Places within the Alwoodley area

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.

Meetings details:

Drop-in session dates and times:

Monday 26 June 5pm-7pm

Monday 3 July 8.30am-9.30am

Thursday 13 July 2.45pm-4pm

Dictionary work!

The children used a dictionary yesterday to find out the meaning of key words from the story Billy’s Sunflower. I was so impressed with the children’s knowledge of how a dictionary is laid out and how to use it effectively. Gust, autumn, wrinkled and droopy were some of the keywords we found!

Observational drawings of sunflowers

The children used a variety of resources including pencil, crayon, pastels and felt tip to complete observational drawings of sunflowers. The children had a go yesterday and then went again today to improve their drawing and really focused on the colours and shapes that they could see.

1EC’s Open Classroom

Thank you to all the parents who came last Friday afternoon to share in our learning. The children had great fun filling up their bucket with points by completing the challenges. It was lovely to be able to share the challenges with younger siblings too. Please look out for a letter and email with the date of the next one!
