This is a very busy week in the life of the school. The children in year six will spend the week sitting their national assessment tests. I am incredibly proud of the determination and effort which they have shown in revising for the tests and we all wish them well.
As the weather improves the children are busy planting and growing around school. The gardening club have begun their preparations for the Yorkshire Show Veg Box entry and will welcome Mr Groves on Monday afternoon to help them with their planting programme. . Wensleydale Class have tidied the courtyard raised bed and Bishopdale have been planting their potatoes and lettuce seeds. You will also have seen Mr Gibbons preparing the area at the front of the school with will be sown with wildflower seeds. The rest of the school are also busy planting potatoes and sunflower seeds to grow during the summer term.
On Tuesday we look forward to welcoming the team from St John’s who will be leading our worship.
Finally I am delighted to be able to announce that the school has been awarded it’s Bronze level Healthy School’s North Yorkshire Award. The school was congratulated for the quality of it’s submission. Special thanks to Mrs Norman for her hard work in coordinating the school’s application. The new award will feature on future newsletters.
