St Anthony's Catholic Primary School

Growing together on a journey with Jesus



A School of Faith

Our Year 4 class had an incredible time on their very first residential experience at St Anthony's. This took place at Herd Farm, Leeds from Monday 8th January 2024 to Wednesday 10th January 2024. Every single child in Year 4 embraced every opportunity to work in co-operation with each other, had lots of fun and made many lasting memories.  They took part in special activities such as "The Zip Wire", "Crate Challenge" and "Leap of Faith", as well as taking part in many challenges, walks, quizzes and group tasks. Have a look at what they all got up to!

Rise Schools Project

Our year 5 children were extremely lucky to be given the chance to work with Northern Ballet as part of their Rise School Project. It was a wonderful opportunity for the children to be taught about Mental Health and the importance of expressing their feelings through different outlets including dance. Northern Ballet were so impressed by the children that they asked to film them for their promotional video! We hope you enjoy!

The intent of our PSHE Curriculum at St Anthony’s

Personal, social, health and economic (PSHE) education at St. Anthony’s aims to develop the whole child. We hope to equip children with a sound understanding of risk and with the knowledge and skills necessary to make safe and informed decisions, tailoring our lessons to the needs of our children. With ever growing pressures on young people, we nurture children’s emotional development and give children space to ask questions in a safe and supportive environment. We will promote the spiritual, moral, social, cultural, mental and physical development of children and prepare them for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of later life.

Year 6 - Leeds United Spotlight Session

Still image for this video
On Monday 28th February, Vicky (from Leeds United) visited Year 6 and led the Primary Spotlight workshop. During this session, the children thought carefully about the positive and negative choices they can make in life, especially as they think about transitioning up to high school. It was great to see Tyler Roberts (striker) and Liam Cooper (Captain) via video spreading this message too. After listening intently, the children were given the chance to act out different scenarios about positive and negative choices; it was wonderful to see their maturity and teamwork during this time. Well done, Year 6!

Year 6 - Weighing up risk

This half term, Year 6’s PSHE lessons have focused upon ‘Weighing up risk.’ At the start of the topic, we could all name a few risks associated with taking drugs. However, after participating in mature discussions, reading different scenarios and completing a workshop with Dave from D:Side, our knowledge and understanding of medical and non-medical (legal and illegal) drugs is excellent. I have been so proud of the maturity the children have shown throughout all these lessons and their work certainly demonstrates their superb understanding now. Well done, Year 6!

Year 6 - Mental Health Awareness

To commemorate Mental Health Awareness month, Year 6 have focused on the theme ‘Bringing Nature Back into our Lives.’ We began by discussing all the different feelings and emotions we can have when we begin to feel nervous or anxious and then discussed in detail about all the different ways we can help these feelings and emotions to be reduced. Many ideas already linked back to nature and the importance of getting fresh air away from our anxieties. We all created wonderful posters to evidence how people can bring nature back into their lives….

Year 5 - Leeds Children's Mayor Manifestos

Leeds Children’s Mayor (LCM) is an annual citizenship project for primary schools that is now entering its 19th year. Run in partnership between the Democratic Services and Voice, Influence and Change Team at Leeds City Council, the project aims to actively engage children in the process of democracy and promote an understanding of their rights and responsibilities. Year 5 children are asked to write a short manifesto about how they would make Leeds a better city for other children, starting with the following line:

“If I were Children’s Mayor of Leeds I would…”

As a class, we voted for our favourite manifesto which become St Anthony's candidate for the year. A panel of children and young people helped to shortlist them down to a final 12 yesterday, selecting who to move forward to the citywide election and voting stage. We are thrilled that our school entry has made it into the final 12! Let campaigning begin... 

As part of our PSHE curriculum, Year 5 were visited by Dave from d:side. During our session, we learnt about the dangers of solvents and the different products which contain solvents. We also explored how to deal with peer pressure.

Year 5 - Bringing nature into our lives

Mental Health Awareness Week helps us all explore what we can do to look after our own and each other’s mental health. The 2021 theme is ‘Nature’ and how it can help us all to feel well. Being able to access nature and the natural environment is incredibly important in looking after our mental health. Year 5 explored how spending time in nature or bringing nature into our lives in any way can help us! We all created wonderful posters to show how people can bring nature back into their lives....

Year 5 are very proud of their home learning achievements!

Year 5 - Internet Safety, Be SMART!

Take a look at our 'Little Book of Hope' inspired by our Collective Worships and 'The Book of Hopes' edited by one of our favourite authors, Katherine Rundell. Our book contains pictures, prayers and words to comfort and inspire.

As part of our PSHE curriculum, Year 4 were visited by Dave from d:side. During our session, we learnt how alcohol affects the body and discussed why people might decide to drink. We found out about different types of alcohol and explored how to deal with peer pressure when dealing with issues to do with alcohol.

Year 4 Acts of Kindness

As part of our Collective Worship on the kindness, we reflected upon and recorded examples of where we see this virtue in our daily lives.  We have made it our mission to  praise others when we see them showing kindness to others.

This half term in PSHE, Year 3's PSHE topic is 'Careers, financial capability and economic wellbeing'. Today, we were exploring and discussing various ways that we can pay for items. The children worked in pairs to match up payment methods to their definitions.

Year 2 - Staying Safe in a Fire [May 2021]

Still image for this video
Year 2 had a very special virtual visit from the Hunslet Fire Service this week. Within our discussion with a fire fighter, we discovered so much about how fire spreads, how to prevent it and what to do in the event of a fire. We talked about many different scenarios which could be unsafe and shared ideas on what to do in these situations. I was so impressed with how sensible Year 2 were, when asking Fire Fighter Scott about his role as a Fire Fighter and how to stay safe within our own homes.
Take a look at some of our pictures from our visit!

Year 2 - A Huge Thank You!

Year 2 were delighted to return to school after lockdown and it was wonderful to hear the laughter and see the smiles as the children were reunited with their friends and teachers. We spent time discussing our feelings (which were all extremely positive) and sharing our worries about how to keep everyone safe. Afterwards, we spent the morning writing poetry for our grown ups to say a huge thank you for all the love and support.

Reception - Mental Health Awareness Week

Still image for this video
We have been learning all about how we can look after our mental health. To start our day in a calming way we participated in a mindfulness session. We used breathing buddies and tissue paper butterflies to help us to focus on our breathing and taking long slow breaths. Then we focused our minds by completing finger labyrinths. Some of us even worked together outside to create a giant outdoor labyrinth that we could walk around taking calming breaths. We talked about how we were feeling today using our mood stars to help our discussion. Then we made our own mood star badges to demonstrate our emotions. We listened to the story of 'Silly Billy' by Anthony Browne and talked about what we can do if we are ever worried about something, before making our own worry dolls to take home. What a busy day we have had learning lots of very important techniques to keep our minds healthy!
