There are strong and supportive relationships across the whole school community (SIAMS 2016) and we believe that it is very important that this extends in to the community in Shelf and beyond.
Over the last few years our school have delivered and shared handmade angels in the local community at Christmas time. The angels have a prayer attached to them and we take great pride knowing they were spreading love, hope and happiness. We receive some wonderful feedback from the school community and they really make a difference.
Thank you to everyone who knits and crochets angels, it is greatly appreciated and we can't do the project without your help.
We have a school choir for Years 4 and above. They meet to rehearse at lunchtimes and enjoy performing at any opportunity. They have performed in school assemblies as well as at St Michael's Church during their Christmas Angel Fest.
Our choir relished an opportunity to sing at The Big Sing at Victoria Theatre in Halifax and at a showcase event at Brighouse High School.
They can not wait to be able to get singing together once again and spread some musical joy in our local community!
Pupils researched soldiers and decorated poppies with their names and history. These then adorned lampposts, churches and the village cenotaph ahead of the Remembrance Day events.
