Lantern Learning Trust Football Tournament

On Friday 14th July, Blenheim Primary School hosted the annual Lantern Learning Trust football tournament for Year 5 and 6 children. Five schools (Blenheim, Rosebank, Brudenell, Little London and Quarry Mount) each entered two teams. The competition started with group stages and progressed into knockout games until the final. An undefeated Quarry Mount faced Blenheim in the final. After a thrilling end-to-end game finished 0-0 with some fantastic saves made by both goalkeepers, the result was decided by penalties. Two brilliant saves from Oakley led to victory for Quarry Mount! All of the children had a brilliant time, showed great sportsmanship and enjoyed singing all the way back to school in the rain. Well done to all of the children who took part and a big well done to our winners: Oakley, Harrison, Alexia, Zayn, Luqman, Harrison, Ashaz and Wadan.

Sports Day 2023

The wet weather did not stop us participating in Sports Day and the sun eventually came out! All children enjoyed the different sporting activities and they were all great team players. Our Year 6 Sports Leaders did a great job of supporting other year groups with the activities.

International Evening 2023

The whole community came together on Thursday 22nd June 2023 as we hosted International Evening. Not only did our parents & carers generously donate food linked to a variety of cultures, we were supported by Gateway Church, Woodhouse Community Centre & Leeds City Academy. Our pupils were able to showcase some of their work on their class stalls and we had a performance from our choir as well as a Bollywood dancing performance from some of our Year 5 students! Members of our community arrived in in cultural dress and shared stories of their childhood experiences.

Wonderful Performances!

Well done to our choir and recorder club who both performed in assembly this week. You all wowed the other classes and Mrs Pettman and Mr Dunderdale said the performances were fabulous! If you would like to see the choir and recorder club perform, make sure you come to our International Evening next half term!

Magical Musical Performances!

Chestra, an instrumental duo, visited Quarry Mount in April and gave some wonderful performances for EYFS, KS1 and KS2. We heard them play lots of different musical genres and we even learned about the different sections of an orchestra! We explored the music through movement and we joined in playing percussion. Some of the children even got the chance to play the harp!

World Book Day 2023

We had so much fun celebrating World Book Day this year! All year groups put so much effort into their costumes and we spent all day talking about our favourite books and stories. We mixed some classes and did peer reading together which was so fun as the children got to spend time with their friends in other year groups. Lots of the children took part in a potato decorating competition. You'll find out soon who won!

The Hobbit Theatre Production
In Spring 2 2023, we had M and M Theatrical Productions visit. They performed the classic tale, The Hobbit by J R R Tolkien for the whole school! Year 6 then had an exciting workshop where they got to look behind the scenes of the production.
