This week is the week of the national tests for children in year six; I know just how hard the children and staff have worked in preparation for the week. I am sure that you will join with me in wishing all of the children well for the week ahead.

There is still plenty going on in school with three sporting competitions after school; on Monday it is the tennis tournament for children in year 3/4 at St John Fisher led by Mrs Jackson; on Tuesday there is a sports event for children in year 1/2 led by Mrs Phelan with the year 5/6 children participating in their tennis tournament also at St John Fishers on Wednesday. Also on Wednesday it is the final session for the cycling club

After school clubs this week include choir, rounders, athletics, cricket and year 1/2 fit for life.

On Monday the team from Harrogate Grammar School will be in school to present our winning maths team with their trophy.

All this week the children will have the opportunity in the afternoons to access the prayer stations set up by the team at St John’s as part of our participation in the ‘Thy Kingdom Come’ project. Two of the classes have already had access to the activities and I would like to thank the team at St John’s for doing such a wonderful job.

Many of you will notice plants being removed from the school entrance, Mr Gibbons is beginning the process of moving some of our plants to rescue them ahead of the planned building work.

Finally, weather permitting, we will be holding our own picnic on the school fields to celebrate the royal wedding on Saturday.

The photos below show last week’s yellow jersey wearers and some of the children from Coverdale enjoying the prayer stations in the school library.
