Welcome Back to what I am sure will be a busy Summer Term; I hope that you have all been able to enjoy the spring sunshine over the Easter Holidays. The first newsletter of the new term will include details of the many events which will be taking place during the next couple of months.
This newsletter is going to focus on the events which will be taking place during the first week. On Tuesday Coverdale will be meeting up with their partner farmer, Oliver Price, who will be talking to them about what he grows and how he manages his farm. Tuesday is also the first meeting of the school’s summer term gardening club who will be working with Mr Groves to prepare the vegetables that we will be entering into the Great Yorkshire Show Veg Box Competition this year. With our potato buckets, polytunnel and raised beds we will be growing a wide range of different crops with the children this term.
On Wednesday afternoon a large number of children from Key Stage Two will be travelling to Sheffield to participate in the delayed Young Voices Concert. Finally, on Friday some of the children from Nidderdale Class have been invited to take part in a very special event to mark Global Intergenerational Week. The children will be visiting The Cuttings residential home on Station Road, where the residents have been learning about the topic being studied by the children from Nidderdale. They have prepared some wonderful activities to share with the children and it should be a fantastic afternoon.
The photographs below show children from Year 6 who hosted the first community tea of the year before the Easter break. There are also some of the 122 entries into our easter egg decorating competition. If you want to see more of our fantastic entries they can be found on the school website gallery.
Finally, after giving Mrs Wood a wonderful send off at the end of last term we welcome Mrs Manwaring to the office team as she starts her new role, I am sure that you will make her feel very welcome.
