Stencil your own Christmas T shirt workshop
Year 5 pupils from Hollybush Primary School travelled to Lawnswood to participate in a ‘stencil your own Christmas T shirt workshop’ led by Mrs Tweedy and ably assisted by selected 6th form students as well as Miss Boldra and Mrs Hawkins.
The workshop provided the Hollybush pupils with the experience of a practical Textile activity in one of Lawnswood School’s specialist Textile rooms, starting with a practice print of their favourite Christmas stencil and building up to stencilling their own T shirt with the added addition of glitter if they wanted to add it (of course most did!) whilst listening to Christmas songs to get them in the festive mood! As well as the stencilling exercise the young pupils were told about the after care of the T shirt, including ironing on the reverse to fix the dye, so will hopefully have some gained some life skill knowledge for the future? The majority of the Hollybush pupils also said they were planning to wear their T shirt to school the following day for ‘Wear a Christmas jumper to School Day’ which is high praise indeed.
We hold an annual sporting competition which brings together our
cluster of Primary Schools to compete at Leeds Metropolitan University.
year's event is celebrating the amazing athletes who herald from Yorkshire.
Parents and carers are invited to come and spectate at the event and hopefully
see the next generation of Yorkshire Champions.

Tour de France Workshop
On Wednesday 27th June the Modern Foreign Languages department delivered a KS2 Tour de France workshop.
On the day
pupils came together from Weetwood, Ireland Wood, Iveson, Hawksworth
Wood and Spring Bank primary schools, to take part in our Tour de France
The workshop allowed every pupil to take part in a French themed treasure hunt, which involved them working as a team to collect the most points. Each station was named after a Yorkshire place that was on the Tour de France map which was designed on our hall floor.
What has been remembered about the day
‘’Our children really enjoyed it and it is always great for them to experience a different school and get the chance to meet other teachers and pupils.’’ - Ireland Wood primary
‘’They all came back to school even more excited about the Tour de France’’
A special thank you goes to Ms Gilbank and Ms Melia for organising the Tour De France workshop and bringing everyone together for such exciting day.
