For one of our challenges, Willow had to be a loud audience! So we took a trip to the theatre! We went to the Leeds Playhouse to see, 'The Night Before Christmas.' It was a wonderful production about a lady who had lost the joy of Christmas and an elf that landed in her house to help her to find it. The children did us so proud, joining in with the music and dancing, chatting with the actors and listening so carefully to the show. Well done Willow - challenge completed! 

Outdoor Learning in Reception


In Reception, we make sure that we learn outside- whatever the weather! Our children love the open-ended learning opportunities available to them outdoors. In the outdoor area children are able to engage with their senses, develop their physical skills, imagination, and begin to understand the world around them. They are so independent in making sure they are ready to explore, whatever the conditions and are encouraged to manage their own risks safely. We love the great outdoors!

Lane End Challenges


Here at Lane End, as we ‘learn and believe, aspire and achieve’, we are faced with many new experiences and challenges.

Some of these arrive as special ‘Lane End Challenges’!


Some challenges will help us to be important parts of wider teams and communities.

Some challenges will let us learn about and try new things we might never have done before – and sometimes we will have to be brave to try!

Some challenges will help us to develop new skills that we will need in everyday life.

Some challenges will make us think about our futures, and help us to develop our own hopes, goals and aspirations.

Many challenges will make us use our voices – so that we can share our ideas, and communicate what we know and think.


Look at the links below to find out what we have been up to and what we have successfully completed so far this year.
