Primary School

Everyone learns and everyone achieves because everyone matters!

See us Learning in March 2023

Year 5 had an art day learning about digital art, mixed media and typography. They took lots of interesting photos, on the iPads, of textures and patterns, and based their pictures on a theme such as 'nature' or 'industrial'.

Year 5 have been developing their map reading skills for the Settlements topic in Geography, using a four-figure grid reference.

Geography - Year 5 loved learning all about their local area and used maps and iPads to collect data about the village of Shadwell. They then turned the research into a fantastic Powerpoint presentation comparing different settlements.

Year 3 practising some French phonics and silent letters in their Easter/Spring vocabulary.

Leeds City Council Primary Debating Competition 2023 - the heats!

 

This year Wigton Moor entered two teams of 3 students for the Primary Debating Competition - one team from year 5 and one from year 6.

 

The first stage of this annual competition is broken down into 3 heats. This year there was 17 schools with a total of 30 teams taking part. Within each heat, teams from different schools debated each other. In each debate, one team was proposing the motion, and the other was opposing the motion. Judges scored each team based on set criteria including argument, presentation and structure, and the winners of each debate were announced at the end of each heat. The motion for the heats was "Children should have longer play times during the school day”.

 

Our teams:

 

Wigton Moor Team 1 – Year 5 – Opposers (arguing AGAINST the motion)

Speaker 1: Mo

Speaker 2: Charlotte

Speaker 3: Nika

Team 1 - Year 5

Wigton Moor Team 2 – Year 6 – Proposers (arguing FOR the motion)

Speaker 1: Harrison

Speaker 2: Milo

Speaker 3: Hanshitha

Team 2 - Year 6

We are very proud of our teams and all of the hard work they put into preparing for the debates - so we were extremely pleased that after a morning full of constructive argument both of our teams were announced as the winners of their debates!! 

 

What's next??

 

The top-scoring 8 teams from across the 3 heats will be invited to participate in the quarter-finals, semi-finals and grand final at Leeds Civic Hall towards the end of the summer term - we have every faith that our teams will make it through to the next round!
