We have another busy and exciting week ahead of us at Richard Taylor School.
For the children in Year Six it will be a very special week after last week’s national tests as they head off on Tuesday to Scargill House for their residential week in the Yorkshire Dales. We hope that the sun shines for them and that they have a wonderful time.
Back at RTS there is a lot happening. On Monday the governors and senior leadership team will be interviewing some outstanding candidates for the new teaching post in Nidderdale Class following the retirement of Mrs Wake at the end of this year. I look forward to introducing you to the newest addition to our staffing team as soon as the appointment has been confirmed.
On Tuesday afternoon Mrs Styles will be hosting the first of her Parent’s Nibbles and Natter Sessions from 2pm. It is a chance for any parent to come along to school and to be part of a network which aims to help drive the working partnership between school and home? Mrs Styles will be there to support you with any queries or questions which you may have; we hope to see lots of parents attending what will be a really positive session.
Also, on Tuesday Mr Groves will be back in school to work with the Gardening Club as they continue to prepare their vegetable box for the Yorkshire Show. The rest of the school is busy caring for their potato buckets and sunflower seeds.
On Thursday afternoon children from Yr4 and Yr5 will be joining Mrs Wake to participate in the planned Kids Aloud composing workshop.
Next week is the final week of a short half term. The end of the week will see the school celebrating the Platinum Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth. Please look out for a separate communication regarding these events.
Thank you to everyone who supported the latest walk to school event held last Friday.
