Thank you to everyone who supported the Macmillan Coffee morning last Friday. This week’s newsletter will announce the total raised.

This week starts with Claire Bassingdale working with classes in the hall on Monday morning; in the afternoon we welcome Mr Green to lead our worship and after school the TAG rugby club continues on the field.

On Tuesday the children in year one will be having their hearing tests at school. In the afternoon the children in year 5/6 will be taking part in workshops led by the NSPCC.

Wednesday sees the school welcome Mr Richard Wilton who will be leading our worship time with a demonstration of brass instruments for anyone interested in starting lessons this year. After school Mr Starkey will be taking the Yr3/4 children to week 4 of their football tournament at HHS whilst Choir practice is held in the hall. At the same time our KS1 after school sports club will be taking place in the KS1 playground.

Thursday is the busiest day of the week starting with Orchestra Practise before school. Mrs Crisell will be taking a group of RTS scientists to a science conference at Boroughbridge High School where they have been asked to present some of the projects which the school has been involved in over the last twelve months. For the rest of the school we welcome Rebecca Oliver from St Wilfred’s Church who will be talking to the children about a special event which the school will be taking part in to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the 1918 armistice in November.

On Friday the NSPCC will be hosting a parents’ workshop in school from 2pm for parents who want to know more about keeping children safe on line; the session is open to parents from both KS1 and KS2 and I hope that many of you will be able to attend this opportunity to learn more about such an important subject.

Good luck to all of our talented runners who will be participating in the Harrogate Cross Country Competition at Harrogate High School on Saturday morning.

The building work has made good progress last week and the children in EYFS will be presented with their own hard hats this week so that they can enjoy building in the outdoor play area.

This week sees the start of a very busy time for RTS where we will be showing around parents looking to apply for places in September 2019. If you know anyone looking for a place at RTS place encourage them to contact the school office to arrange for a tour.

The photos below show the new starters and children meeting the author Robin Stevens last Friday. Last week’s yellow jumper winners will appear in next week’s blog.

Look out for the latest newsletter which will be sent out this week.
