We have been celebrating Yorkshire with the excitement of the first ever Tour de Yorkshire cycling race.  We have found out about this through news updates and assemblies, with some children undertaking their own research at home.

Thursday 23rd April 2015

At Shaw Cross we are celebrating England by finding out about St George. Some children have done research at home, and, during assembly, we also discovered who he was and how he is famous for slaying a dragon.  Our celebration was complete with a special St George's 'English' lunch. Click on St George's flag for activities. Click on the picture for our poster.

There was a celebration held in Morley, with a street market on Saturday 25th April and a parade and gala on Sunday 26th April.  For more details visit the website below click here.   Yorkshire Bear went along to take a look.


"Working together, valuing and nurturing children"
Mrs Janet Drury, Headteacher

Welcome!! Shaw Cross Infant and Nursery is a friendly and caring school. Our staff and governors take pleasure and pride in helping children to develop into confident and happy learners. We take our responsibility very seriously as we want to give children the best possible start to their education and equip them with the knowledge, skills and attitudes to succeed in their future lives. We strive to ensure that children have a broad range of experiences and take every opportunity to involve them in the wealth of cultural experiences available to us in our country.   We firmly believe that education is a partnership between home and school. We place a strong emphasis on developing the personal well being of each child as we feel that this provides the foundation for successful learning. We have developed strong links with other agencies and organsitions including our colleagues at the Chickenley, Earlsheaton and Shaw Cross Children's Centre and Stay n Play Child care to support us in our work. We liaise closely with local schools as we believe by working together we can make a positive impact on the lives of the children, young people and their families within our community. 

We hope that these pages will be informative and provide you with a taste of what we have to offer.

Y1 and Y2 children have been learning about WW1 and took part in  workshops to learn about life at that time. Our Travelling Teddy visited the Tower of London Sea of Red Exhibition
