We told the children that we were going to have some thinking time to think about all the positive things in our world. School have been sent this information about talking to children, and we feel that it is useful information for parents and carers if&nbsp;your children are asking questions about the terror attack. We hope that you find this useful and&nbsp;that it offers some assistance if&nbsp;you wish to&nbsp;talk to your child about these events.&nbsp;</p> <p>{gallery-slideshow:Terrorism leaflet}</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> http://moorthorpeprimary.co.ukThu, 25 May 2017 19:50:00 GMTKey Stage 1 Reading Standard - Working Towardshttp://moorthorpeprimary.co.uk/news/latest/2017-04-06-key-stage-1-reading-standard-working-towardshttp://moorthorpeprimary.co.uk/news/latest/2017-04-06-key-stage-1-reading-standard-working-towards<p>This short video shows an exemplification of the Key Stage 1 Reading Standard. &nbsp;This is an example of the working towards&nbsp;standard for the end of Key Stage One.&nbsp;</p> <p>{youtube:w4c_DMS-3IE}</p> http://moorthorpeprimary.co.uk/images/1024x1024s/news/KS1_Assessments.pngThu, 06 Apr 2017 17:17:41 GMTKey Stage 1 Reading Exemplificationhttp://moorthorpeprimary.co.uk/news/latest/2017-04-06-key-stage-1-reading-exemplificationhttp://moorthorpeprimary.co.uk/news/latest/2017-04-06-key-stage-1-reading-exemplification<p>This short video shows an exemplification of the Key Stage 1 Reading Standard. &nbsp;This is an example of the expected standard for the end of Key Stage One. &nbsp;</p> <p>https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rEWlfQQl_Uo</p> http://moorthorpeprimary.co.uk/images/1024x1024s/news/KS1_Assessments(1).pngThu, 06 Apr 2017 17:03:16 GMTWorld Book Day 2017http://moorthorpeprimary.co.uk/news/latest/2017-03-02-world-book-day-2017-5http://moorthorpeprimary.co.uk/news/latest/2017-03-02-world-book-day-2017-5<p>To celebrate World Book Day 2017 children and staff came as their favourite character or in their pyjamas.

We were joined by a large number of parents for the day&#39;s investigation. The children visited the crime scene, examined fingerprints, read witness statements and listened to audio of conversations to work out who the culprit could be. During the day the children used a range of skills and earned tokens. The winning teams presented their findings in assembly. As the last team finished, breaking news came from Enabling Enterprise headquaters to say the culprit had confessed... Red Riding Hood was the guilty person! She admitted stealing the chocolate for her grandma who was ill and she had no money to buy any chocolate.&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>{gallery:CSI Day}</p> http://moorthorpeprimary.co.uk/images/1024x1024s/news/IMG_1265.JPGFri, 24 Feb 2017 14:47:20 GMTEnterprise Visithttp://moorthorpeprimary.co.uk/news/latest/2017-02-02-enterprise-visithttp://moorthorpeprimary.co.uk/news/latest/2017-02-02-enterprise-visit<p>{gallery-slideshow:NG Bailey Visit}</p> http://moorthorpeprimary.co.uk/images/1024x1024s/news/IMG_0566.JPGFri, 10 Feb 2017 12:15:50 GMTMayor's Visit to Moorthorpehttp://moorthorpeprimary.co.uk/news/latest/2016-11-30-mayor-s-visit-to-moorthorpehttp://moorthorpeprimary.co.uk/news/latest/2016-11-30-mayor-s-visit-to-moorthorpe<p>Today the Mayor of Wakefield, Councillor Harry Ellis, and the Mayoress, Mrs Janet Ellis visited our school! &nbsp;We found out all about what is like to be a Mayor and even had a Mini-Mayor to show them around! &nbsp;We had a special assembly, then the Mayor visited every class and had a chat with all the children about the work that he does.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>{gallery-slideshow:Mayors Visit}</p> http://moorthorpeprimary.co.uk/images/1024x1024s/news/IMG_1174.JPGWed, 30 Nov 2016 15:33:55 GMTYear 6 SAT results 2015-2016http://moorthorpeprimary.co.uk/news/latest/2016-10-12-year-6-sat-results-2015-2016http://moorthorpeprimary.co.uk/news/latest/2016-10-12-year-6-sat-results-2015-2016<p>This is a document to show how our school has done in the end of Key Stage 2 SATs for last year. &nbsp;We are very proud of the amazing achievement and effort the year 6 children have shown throughout this time. &nbsp;We would also like to recognise the hard work of all the teachers, in particular Mr Leafe who prepared the&nbsp;children for these test.</p> <p><a href="/files/Becci Website/2016_SATs_Bar_Graph.pdf">Please take a look by clicking here</a></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> http://moorthorpeprimary.co.uk/images/news/school_logo.jpgWed, 12 Oct 2016 12:19:29 GMTY6 Prom 2016http://moorthorpeprimary.co.uk/news/latest/2016-07-15-y6-prom-2016http://moorthorpeprimary.co.uk/news/latest/2016-07-15-y6-prom-2016<p>{gallery-slideshow:Y6 Prom 2016}</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Y6 Prom Wednesday 13th July 2016.
