  • Benchball

    14th June 2018

    Yesterday saw the Inaugural KS1 inter-house bench ball competition. It was great to see lots of fantastic catching and throwing - the children have clearly been working very hard at developing these skills during the year in their P.E lessons - well done everyone!

     he winners of the tournament were the team in blue - Dalby! Well done to all those who took part and represented their house with pride.

  • The Big Sing

    14th June 2018

    For the last two months, the GLPA choir have been rehearsing for their biggest concert so far - The Big Sing.

     Twenty seven children from Year 1 to 6 have been working hard to learn songs that were written one hundred years ago to commemorate the century anniversary of World War One. These songs were hard and not typically the kind of music that we have been singing recently in the choir. The children were so interested in the

  • Tennis

    5th June 2018

    Our Year 4 and Year 5 tennis teams were in action last night - they played some super tennis in the Garforth tennis heats. A number of the children have been working hard on their tennis techniques, especially forehands, backhands and volleys with Mr Wales at the after-school tennis club. Their hard work was really clear to see as they played to a high level. The children played to the best of their ability and enjoyed the chance to take part in competitive tennis. Our Year 4 team came runners up in their g

  • Golf at Green Lane

    4th June 2018

    KS1 had a treat on Friday May 25th as Steve Carlisle, Head of Garforth Golf Club Junior section, came to deliver a golf taster session for some KS1 children (and parents). The indoor hall proved to be the ideal putting and chipping surface! Children got the chance to putt, chip and shout "fore" (when needed). The session ended in a dramatic putt off between the boys and girls - each player had one shot where they had to get the ball inside a hoop. The boys held the lead throughout thanks to a Christopher C

  • KS1 Sport

    25th May 2018

    It's been a busy week of summer sporting fun for KS1! On Wednesday All Stars cricket came to visit GLPA to give our Year 1 children the chance to experience a cricket taster session. The children absolutely loved the sessions - the feedback from staff was phenomenal. A big thanks to Tom Bates from All Stars cricket for delivering such high quality sessions - we look forward to him returning next year.

    This afternoon we held the annual KS1 inter-house football tournament. It was great to have lots of parents

  • Leeds Book Awards

    25th May 2018

    On Tuesday 22nd May 2018, we went to Leeds Book Awards 2018 with Mrs Martin and Miss Paterson. Sadly, four authors couldn't make it so that only left two authors; Stephanie Burgis and J.R.Wallis (John Rupert Wallis). There were just under 500 people from different schools. After, we watched a game show which was all about books by different authors; it was called 'Aim High or You Might Get a Pie!' Then, we found out the winner! The winner was... Letters from the Lighthouse. Next, we went to the book signing

  • Cricket competition

    23rd May 2018

    We were very proud to take two team teams to the Garforth heats of the UKS2 cricket competition for the first time on Monday. Our boys and girls played with great determination, focus and enthusiasm. Whilst many members of the squad have been developing their skills by attending the after-school cricket club with Garforth cricket coach Pete Dawson, for most this was their first time playing cricket in a competitive situation. On another glorious May day , Green Lane recorded their best result against Strawb

  • Lower KS2 football

    16th May 2018

    Monday afternoon saw Green Lane take two teams to compete in the LKS2 Garforth Schools Tournament under glorious blue sky. The boys played with tremendous determination and resilience (especially when defending) and really grew in confidence as the tournament progressed. The tournament operated in a league format - there were two leagues. The two teams who finished top  of the leagues would then play against each other in a final.
