As part of our celebrations for World Book Day, this week we have had: lots of reading activities, a visit from the author Andy Seed and on Thursday we all dressed up as characters from our favourite books.
This week Year 5 had a brilliant morning finding out about LUFC and the Trust who they will be working with in order to 'Write for a Purpose'. The Academy featured in the Yorkshire Post the next day!
Today (Friday 27/01/17) We have been celebrating Chinese New Year with Cre8tive Dance Company. The children have really enjoyed the dance workshops, especially created for the Year of the Rooster celebrations.
The Department for Education has launched the National Teaching Service, a new programme designed to match top teaching talent to schools that need it most, and it is now open for applications!
The programme will not only be helping support those schools that are struggling to recruit but will also support motivated teachers to take on a new challenge and progress their career.
National Teaching Service teachers will have access to a prestigious package of support and training to help you progress your career. They will be part of a much larger network of teachers as the government intends for their to be 1500 National Teaching Service teachers across the country by 2020.
The roles offered will be on permanent contracts (so jobs will be secure). If you need it, there will also be support to help you relocate.
The National Teaching Service kicks off in the North West in September 2016, later expanding across the country. Applications are open to teachers and middle leaders across the country until March 11 2016.
