Colden is situated on the hillside above Hebden Bridge, surrounded by beautiful countryside. We are a small rural school with a real family feel.
Our talented team of Colden teachers and Learning Support assistants are committed to providing the very best education possible for your child.
At Colden School we believe to prepare our children for what lies ahead, we must provide rich learning opportunities equipping them with the skills to enable them to have choices in life, having respect for themselves, others and the environment in which they live. Raising our children to become critical thinkers, confident in problem-solving and adaptable, whilst growing their curiosity and imagination will ensure they have these choices. There are no limits to a child’s potential at Colden and no ‘glass ceilings’ on learning.
We warmly welcome visitors to school. Please contact Mrs Rose-Hill on
01422 842438 to make an appointment.
With best wishes
Ms L Peberdy

What have we been up to?
This week in Class 4:
"We have been learning about Diwali. Diwali is a festival of light."
"We have been on a welly walk and we were looking at Storm Barney's damage."
"Today in Class 4, Chico is retiring. We made a big cake for him. Chico has been here for a very long time."
"Today Chico is retiring, so we are going to make a cake for him."
This week in Class 3:
In Art and DT: "We have been making poppies to remember Armistice Day. We used templates too! We used special textured paper to draw around templates. We stuck it together with glue."
In English: "We have bee learning about homophones and writing our own story of the Lost Object. We have also been writing a bonfire poem using describing words."
In Science: "We have been on a Sound Walk. We've explored sounds in our school. We've been sorting out pictures of musical instruments in a caroll diagram."
In Maths this week, we have been learning about angles. Year 3's have been recognising right-angles in and around the classroom in shapes. They have also been using them to give and follow directions. The Year 4's have been learning to recognise and order acute and obtuse angles and investigating regular and irregular polygons.
In Topic, we have been learning about maps and plans. We learnt about the British Isles and what we can find out from maps. We've learnt how the continents were formed and we've found out about countries. We've looked at plans and made our own plan.
This week, too, we've read poems, noticing similes, metaphors, personification and layout. We've worked hard to improve our handwriting. Year 4 have begun to use apostrophes to show plural possession.
We've had a good week!
This week we have:
"Our new topic is Ancient China and to do with that we have made; Chinese cut-outs, Chinese plates and drawn either Shang tang or some people on horses." Greta
"Today we made lots of Christmas things and I made a Christmas card where you rolled up lots of pieces of paper and stuck it on a template, I made a bell and you could make many other different things." Sophie
"In Colden School Class 1 today we started making a Christmas card, we have rolled up paper and stuck it onto paper to start making a card." Arthur
"At school this week with Ms Sharp we have been talking and writing about similes. With Mrs Brown we finished a book called Kensuke's Kingdom by Michael Morpurgo. We also have been learning about our topic the Shang Dynasty." Poppy
"This morning we made salt dough Christmas decorations with Mrs Scott. When they are baked we will paint them and maybe add some glitter. When they are finished we will put some on the school Christmas tree and bring the rest home." Nina
"Today we were making Christmas cards, which was really fun." Elias
