HARVEST FESTIVAL

A big thank you to all the parents who were able to contribute items of food and come and share our Harvest Festival assemblies.  The children have all worked hard to find out about the types of food we eat, where crops are grown, the work of farmers, and about how Global warming could affect the work of our farmers.  They shared this information through some beautiful singing and reciting the information clearly.  All the food contributions have been donated to a local organisation – SHILOH – who prepare meals for the homeless.

 

 A VISIT TO THE DEEP

In October, year 3 and 4 went on their school visit to The Deep, in Hull.  It was a fabulous day that was thoroughly enjoyed by all.  Once back at school, we received a letter from The Deep through the post (CERTIFICATE).  We are extremely proud to have such wonderful, well behaved children in our school.  WELL DONE year 3 and 4!  Have a look through some of the pictures that were taken during the visit.

PE Kit.

Can you please ensure your child brings a PE kit to school every  Monday or on the days when they have a lesson (shown below). It is important that children change their clothes for PE so they do not damage their school uniform. It also encourages a healthy lifestyle. PE kit could be a T shirt, suitable footwear like trainers and shorts, leggings or tracksuit bottoms.

  • Monday – Miss Griffiths, Mrs Chaplin, Mrs Davies / Mr Lyne.
  • Tuesday – Mrs Yasseen, Mrs Oxley / Mrs Shaukat, Miss Griffiths, Mrs Hill / Mrs Garbutt.
  • Wednesday – Mrs Chaplin, Mr Murray, Mrs Bruce-Hillman, Mrs Wadsworth / Mrs Gregory.
  • Thursday – Mrs Pease, Mr Little, All Y5/6
  • Friday – Mrs Bruce- Hillman, All Y3/4 PE or swimming.

Chewing gum.

A reminder that children should not come to school  eating chewing gum or have any in their pockets, bags or packed lunches. This also applies when children go to sporting events or on class visits. If children do accidently bring chewing gum to school they should give it to an adult and it will be returned at hometime. Children who do bring chewing gum to school will lose a break.
