The start of the 2nd week of the summer term coincides with St George’s Day on the 23rd April.
Congratulations to all of the children who won certificates for their entries in the Harrogate in Bloom competition.
This is a very busy week with lots happening. On Monday we welcome Maguy, a French Student and part of the St Aidan’s student exchange who will be spending the week with us. At 11.30am the Garden Club will be making their first visit to the Allotment plot of Mr Groves who is helping us to plan and grow our entry in this year’s Great Yorkshire Show Veg Box competition. Also on Monday afternoon Coverdale Class will be making their 2nd trip to Bilton Fields, where they are undertaking an environmental study through the year of the wildlife to be found at different times in the year.
On Tuesday we welcome Claire Bassingdale from St Aidan’s who will be leading sports sessions through Tuesday morning. Mr Green will be leading our worship at 1.15pm and at 2.30 Mrs Phelan will be accompanying the Yr2 Football Team taking part in the tournament at Harrogate High School.
Wednesday sees Swaledale and Nidderdale visiting the Yorkshire Wildlife Park for the day. After school it is the first of two parent’s consultation evenings being held on consecutive nights. Thank you to everyone who have booked their consultation slots on line using the new booking system, I look forward to seeing you all on Tuesday and Wednesday.
On Friday Ian Johnson will be back at school to help children from all classes planting new plants in the school’s Peace Garden. The friends have funded new plants to fill some of the gaps and Ian has kindly agreed to help us get everything planted. Anyone with a spade and an hour to spare on Friday morning would be welcome to join us.
Tea and cakes for good manners and super behaviour will be shared with the chosen children on Friday afternoon.
I am delighted to announce that the school has been successful in bidding for funding to undertake improvements to the entrance hall; work will hopefully begin in the summer holidays. More information will be made available to everyone in the next newsletter. The improvements will significantly enhance the school’s facilities and is great news.
