We seem to be flying through November now and quickly approaching a special festive season.
Thank you to everyone who sent in their pennies to support Children in Need, pictures should be on the website and we will announce our title as soon as the pennies have all been counted.
On Monday the 2nd of our Bikeability, cycle training sessions begin, last week’s cyclists are already proudly wearing their badges after completing the course. On Monday afternoon we will be enjoying our first ‘Shine and Share’ Big RE afternoon where every child will be involved in creative RE activities to learn more about the role that Peacemakers have made to the world.
Tuesday afternoon will see the whole of Bishopdale enjoying a Tiger Tea Party with parents after reading the children’s classic tale ‘The Tiger Who Came to Tea’; I have even received an invitation myself and so if you have been invited I look forward to seeing you there.
The year 5/6 football team will enjoy week three of their football tournament at Harrogate High School; after two weeks they have only suffered one defeat!
On Friday the children in KS2 will enjoy taster sessions in a sport that I have never come across before; Mrs Saunderson has arranged coaching in ‘RuDo’ which is a combination of Rugby and Judo!
Also on Friday afternoon the Friends Prayer Group will be meeting in the staffroom at 2.30pm, all are welcome to join the group.
Into the weekend, Trinity Methodist Chapel in town are holding a crib festival and the school have entered a crib of our own. Look out for photos next week.
Finally, the week beginning 27th November is the start of our special ‘Science Week’ with a huge range of special activities and events planned for all of the children to enjoy.
I also want to send our best wishes to Bob our wonderful lollipop man who has been suffering with illness last week; get well soon Bob we have all missed you!
The photographs below show the yellow jumper winners for last week. If you look closely you might spot Mr Starkey in his dancing outfit last week when he performed a wonderful Jive for Charity in front of a thousand people. Mrs Crisell, who went along to support, didn’t dance but still looks strictly wonderfully sparkly!
