Latest school and FOBS news
Update from the Headteacher
This last half-term of the summer is always an exceptionally busy time, and this year is no exception. We have many sporting events to attend, a whole trip to the Magna Science Centre, near Sheffield and our annual sports day and school production. A number of class visits have already taken place and this newsletter includes accounts of trips to Cow Corner, Thorp Perrow and Edinburgh which I hear was thoroughly enjoyed by all who attended. The annual assessments have nearly ended. Currently attainment across the school is strong. Nearly every year group is at least in line with national expectation in writing and maths and many groups are above in reading. The children’s annual reports will be with you towards the end of term and will highlight the progress they have made this year along with their strengths and next steps.
FOBS Fashion Show & Cake Stall
A big thank you to all who organised or took part in another very successful fashion show before half-term. We were spoilt with many stylish models, children and adults, who were naturals on the catwalk. The event organised by FOBS raised £550.22. Their cake stall at Thirsk market also raised £53. A wonderful effort from everyone!
Owls Visit to Thorp Perrow
At Thorp Perrow I fed the wallabies. They had baby joeys in their pouches. They were so cute. We also saw meerkats and chickens. We saw goats and owls. We went to the park and I went on the slide and the zip wire. Then we went on the bus and back to school. By Poppy
Year 6 visit to Edinburgh
We went on a train for two hours to get to Edinburgh. When we got there we went to the castle. It was amazing and we learnt lots of facts about the history of Edinburgh. The next thing we did was walk up Arthur’s Seat (an extinct volcano) and we got soaking wet. We then went to the Museum of Scotland and got some gifts. The scariest place was when we went to Real Mary Kings Close. On the last day we went to Dynamic Earth and we watched a 4D movie which told us about animals and adaptations. Altogether it was a great trip and everyone enjoyed it. By Izzy and Holly
At Cow Corner we saw cows being milked with clusters. We learned all about cows and which types made milk. One of them is the Friesian. The best bit was trying the milk and eating cow biscuits. Why not go for your own milk at Cow Corner? By Sam and Joseph
Maths Day - All of Falcons class went to Aiskew, Leeming Bar for a maths day. The maths day was about the Tour de Yorkshire. We worked in groups to solve different puzzles. I enjoyed the ‘spot the difference’ and the word search. By Madeline
SATS - Well done to all the Y6 and Y2 children who applied themselves brilliantly to their SATs weeks in May. They have all worked very hard for the tests and deserve lots of success when the results are released in early July. Enjoy a relaxing June children – you deserve it!
Brass Instrument Tuition
As a school, we are very lucky to have our own brass tutor, Mr Sidwell, who visits us every week to teach trumpet, trombone and euphonium. Last week he gave a demonstration to the children in the hope that some may be interested in learning a brass instrument. If your child has expressed an interest, please e-mail Mr Sidwell at: Marksidwell72@hotmail.comor see Mrs Craddock for further details.
