What makes our school special?

This term the children in school have been talking about what makes our school special.  Reception and Year 1 had ideas that included our wonderful playground and field, our friends and being near to the church so that we can visit on special occasions.

Millie James
Our school is special because all of the children are friends. We are like a family and people are kind to one another. The adults are kind and thoughtful and they help us if we are hurt or not feeling well. They look after us and help us learn, they also help us be a smart church school.
We are close to the church.  Mr Welsby and Reverend Alison come to visit, so we learn about God. We have many church governors and they are interested in the school. We have lots of interesting visits and visitors like scientists, Chinese ribbon dancers, Shakespeare days, Santa, Bolton Abbey and a chocolate factory.

Lydia Bradley
Our school is special because we have kind teachers that help us to learn interesting things. We are all kind to everyone, so it feels like a family. If we are hurt or have fallen over then one of the teachers makes us feel better. Our school is special because we are next to the church and our vicar, Reverend Alison, comes to visit us. We also have Santa who comes to visit us at Christmas.

Sophia Barlow
Our school is special because we are all friends and the children are kind to each other. The adults help the children when they hurt themselves and they help the children when they are stuck in lessons. We get to go on school trips and sometimes people come to the school, so we feel really lucky! Our head teacher is really kind to us and always says hello.

Freya Linegar
Our school is special because we are a church school. We have governors and visitors who come in sometimes and do collective worship, this is really fun. Everyone in our school is friends so it feels like a family. On our playground we have a hopscotch game and in the hall we have a stage. We also have a faith garden with mosaics which we have designed. We have visitors and school trips.

Rose Staniforth
Our school is special because we go to church to pray and we have a vicar. I’m very proud to be at our school because we all work hard and we all work together to be a good school. We have lots of visits and we do music. The adults are the most caring because they are always here for us and they help us when we are hurt. Our Head Teacher is good because she is part of the family, we are like a big family and you are very welcome at Kirby Hill, all of the time.

Thomas Salvini
Our school is special because we have lots of visitors coming in and we have Shakespeare days and science visits. They are all very good. We have a church close to us; it is called ‘All Saints Church’. We are all friends and we have a big field and a big adventure playground. Our adults are very kind and thoughtful, we are very pleased with the school. Our school is the best!
