Enterprise Project Friday 2nd December 2016
We're entering the Wensleydale Rotary Club Enterprise Project again this year. Utilising a small start up fund, pupils have been busy developing ideas and making products. A small team of pupils headed down to Reeth Market today to begin sales, with more opportunities to buy at school events over the next few weeks. This year, all funds raised will support the Yorkshire Air Ambulance. Thank you for your support.

We stopped regularly to check our progress, work out grid references and learn about local geography, today and in the past.

Early Years Classroom September 2016
We are delighted to start the new school year with our redeveloped Early Years classroom, accommodating both Nursery and Reception aged pupils. Internal teaching and learning space has been doubled, with the addition of a new interactive panel and updated furniture, equipment and learning resources. The classroom benefits from a new cloakroom and welcome area that is larger and much closer to the main building. Externally, the outdoor learning area has doubled, along with the construction of new store rooms.
Benefits of the new arrangements include:
- a larger class of pupils, offering more opportunity for interaction and play based learning
- a new outdoor learning corridor connecting KS1 with the Early Years class
- two distinct teaching groups (Early Years and KS1), each following their own curriculum
- greater flexibility for parents of nursery age pupils to access 15 hours of education at times that suit them
- provision for parents who require more than 15 hours of nursery education
- preparation for delivering 30 hours of nursery education in September 2017
