I hope that the lovely weather over the weekend will last through the week as a number of classes head out of school for their summer trips. The Blue Cross cake sale held by Nidderdale and Swaledale raised over £150 for the animal charity which is a fantastic effort. After school on Monday the Friends will be holding their final cake sale of the year, selling cakes made by Coverdale, Wensleydale and Wharfedale. At 6pm on Monday we will be welcoming our new parents from the September 2017 intake to school for their information evening.
On Tuesday Dentdale and Ribblesdale Classes will be visiting Harewood House whilst Amy Lyons from St Aidan’s will be coming the work with our sports leaders for the day. At the same time the team from the Ann Frank Trust will be returning to complete their anti-bullying work with some of our children from year 5. We also welcome Simon from St John’s tolead our worship at 1pm.
On Wednesday it is the turn of Airedale Class to go out of school on their trip to Hesketh Park Farm whilst after school Matthew Lunn continues with his football club for year 3/4 children.
On Friday Vicki Lever from NYCC youth services will be visiting school to speak to the children from year 6 about the opportunities open to them over the summer holidays. At lunch time, weather permitting, the kitchens will be serving a fish and chip lunch which can be taken outside. In the afternoon the Friends Prayer Group will be meeting in the staff room. This is open to all parents; if you are unable to attend but would like a prayer shared with the group please leave it in the prayer box which can be found on the wall in the entrance hall.
Finally a reminder that the school’s sports day will take place on the afternoon of Monday 26th June. If the weather is wet all parents will be informed by text before lunchtime.
Photos below show lots of the yellow jumper winners from previous weeks as well as some photos taken during the Countryside Day last week. All of the classes who attended the Countryside Day were praised for their behaviour.
