Wow! What a show! The children at Ludwell put on a spectacular show which was written by the children of Parrot Class and was a traditional retelling of the Nativity story with a few surprises thrown in. There was laughter, tears during the solo performances and a lot of very accomplished and enthusiastic singing and acting. Well done to all the children- we are very proud of you. Huge thanks to the teachers who have worked very hard to create such a beautiful show. Don't forget to order your video from the PTA to keep as a memento.
Barney From House Of Maths Visits Ludwell
We all had a fantastic day with Barney from House of Maths who came to Ludwell to show us how amazing and fun maths can be.
All children from Reception to Year 6 took part in several interactive and energetic maths sessions to learn about place value, fractions, shapes and measure. Thank you to Barney for a most enjoyable day and for helping to inspire the mathematicians of the future.
Artist In Residence, Des Alner, Creates Whole- School Mural
Children from Reception to Year 6 and staff worked together to create a whole- school clay mural for our entrance hallway. The mural will be made up of individually modelled clay fish inlaid with glass to create a piece of artwork which represents the Ludwell family. The children all worked carefully and methodically to apply their skills they have been learning during their weekly art sessions. We will post pictures of the piece of work as soon as it is installed. We can't wait!
Kite Class Visit Easton C of E Academy
The Kites had a fantastic time when they visited Easton Academy. They have been writing to their pen pals and it was great to finally meet up and put faces to a names!
First, we went to visit a mosque where we learned about Ramadan, how Muslims pray and the Imam explained all about how people who commit acts of terrorism in the name of Islam are not real Muslims.
Next, we went to Chelsea Park and had time to eat lunch with our new friends and play together on the play equipment. Some of the Easton children's mothers had cooked lots of traditional Somalian food and we all enjoyed eating it- it was delicious! This was very kind of them as they were fasting for Ramadan and they could not eat any of the food they had cooked while we were eating it.
Finally, we went to a local church and we learned about how Christians pray and why they believe Jesus is the Saviour of the world.
We are looking forward to welcoming the Easton children back to Ludwell and showing them where we live and our community.
Thank you very much to SoLS who very kindly ran our cake sale to raise funds for school. There was a huge selection of cakes- thank you to you all for your generosity. The children (and staff) enjoyed eating the cakes and, at the last count, we had raised £96.00. A great effort!
Ludwell Pupil Related To Mary Queen of Scots!
We were very interested to hear that Mary Queen of Scots is one of Elinor's ancestors. Here she is dressed up as Mary Queen of Scots- what a great costume!

A group of Year 5 and 6 boys were invited to Sandroyd School to play a 9 V 9 football match.
The boys all worked very hard to play their best games and the final score was 6- 0. Well done to everyone involved and a huge thank you to Sandroyd for being such fantastic hosts. We hope to welcome you to Ludwell soon for a re- match.
5th February 2019
No Added Sugar- a group of community artists- came to Ludwell to help us create a community piece of artwork for our entrance foyer. We decided that we would like to create a butterfly display so all members of the school community and the wider community in Ludwell and beyond could be involved in the life of the school.
Everyone painted at least one butterfly in whatever style they chose; it was lovely to see so many parents joining us to contribute. The children thoroughly enjoyed the day and we are delighted with the results of this project.
We are sure that you'll agree that it really does have the Wow! factor and ensures that the first impression of Ludwell is of a warm and welcoming place. If you haven't already seen it, please do pop in to have a look.
