Christingle                                                              December 2017

Thank you to all those who joined us and who gave donations to the Children’s Society at our Christingle event. It was a lovely service. Together with Arkengarthdale School we raised £231.55. 

KS2 York Residential                                               November 2017 

Pupils really enjoyed our two day visit to York. For Year 3 and 4, it was the finale to their Viking project. They visited Jorvik and DIG, built Viking longships and made Viking bread. Year 5 and 6 pupils visited York Minster as part of their study of the Romans. They ventured beneath the floor of the cathedral to see the remains of the Roman Principia. On their return to school this class will go on to design their own city and, as a starting point for this project, climbed to the top of the Minster to see York beneath them. They also completed further study of the city and its layout, visiting the railway station, exploring the city walls and interviewing members of the public. 

'It was fun and exciting. It was great to be out and about. I liked everything.' 

'I've learned how to make Viking medicine and Viking bread.'

'I've learned how to do stuff differently without Mum and Dad.'

'I've learned that you need to believe in yourself because when we were interviewing people in the city I felt nervous, but I did it and enjoyed it.'

'The view from top of York Minster was amazing. I think it will help me with the Design a City project.'

Summit Success                                                      October 2017 

After school on Friday, having developed stamina, confidence and skills in recent weeks, the fell running club made it to the top of Calver Hill. Well done everyone.

Conkers in the Early Years                                       October 2017 

We were all delighted by a very generous donation of a huge bag of beautifully shiny conkers, kindly given by a KS2 pupil. We have made full use of them, adding them to our sand tray to dig up as treasure and our farm ‘tuff spot’ for the tractors to move around. We enjoyed using our senses to describe what they looked, felt and smelt like. We have also used them in our maths activities and liked matching the right number of conkers to a numeral.

Harvest Service                                                       October 2017 

Today we enjoyed a fantastic harvest service. Pupils shared artwork, poetry, prayers and reflection. Inspired by a visit from Reverend Janet last week, pupils went on to develop their own ideas and response that they shared with the rest of the school and parents. Well done everyone. 

Fell Running                                                            October 2017 

Following the success of mountain bike club in the summer term, we've been out and about fell running this half term. Each week we've ventured a little further, exploring the tracks, footpaths and bridleways in the local area. We've been really impressed by the pupils' ability and by their enjoyment of running. We're hoping to make it to the top of Calver Hill in the next few weeks - we'll keep you posted. 

School Relay                                                            September 2017

On Saturday afternoon, 18 pupils and their parents joined us for a sponsored relay in support of the Friends of the Schools. Three teams raced from Gunnerside to Reeth, with the fastest team completing the 6 mile journey in just 1hr 17m! Well done to everyone for taking part, supporting and enjoying the event.
