Archaeology at The Hagg                                                                July 2019

Thank you to members of Swaledale and Arkengarthdale Archaeology Group (SWAAG) for welcoming us to their dig site at The Hagg. Pupils in Year 4 and 5 took part in the visit that made a perfect introduction to life in Roman Britain, the project that the class will study in the autumn term. On arrival, pupils were guided through the site, hearing about its layout, the key finds and the latest interpretation of these. Pupils went to dig their own test pit, interview university students involved in the project and make wool. It was a super morning that pupils really enjoyed.

Saltburn                                                                                           July 2019

Our KS1 and Reception pupils enjoyed a great day at Saltburn as part of their work this term on ‘Coasts’ and ‘By the Sea’. They enjoyed traditional seaside activities, along with experiencing a ride on the cliff tram dating back to Victorian times, and having an ice-cream!

East Barnby                                                                                    July 2019

Year 3 and 4 enjoyed a fantastic residential experience at East Barnby last week. They all took part in body boarding, canoeing and a seashore explore, complimenting their class-based learning on coasts.

Killhope Lead Mining Museum                                                        July 2019

Having seen evidence of lead mining in Gunnerside Gill, pupils visited Killhope where they experienced the processes used on the dressing floor and headed below ground too. 

Lead Mining in Gunnerside Gill                                                      June 2019 

Y5/6 enjoyed a great day exploring Gunnerside Gill as part of their study of former lead mining in the local area. We walked through the dressing floors of Sir Francis Level, learning about the different methods used to process the lead ore and the increasing use of technology to drive the levels and pump water from the mines. We ventured further to Bunton Level and then on to the the smelt mill and and peat store at Blakethwaite. We returned on the western side of the valley and this gave a great view of the Gorton, Friarfold and Bunton hushes. 

School Walk                                                                                   June 2019

Thanks to everyone who joined us for the Friends of School Walk. 

The Lost Words                                                                             June 2019

This week Jamie Normington of Cumbria Wildlife Trust visited and led assemblies at both schools. He is completing the Coast to Coast walk and is calling at schools along the way to talk about his journey, the wildlife he has seen and a book called The Lost Words. Pupils really enjoyed the assemblies and the opportunity to discuss wildlife. We wish Jamie the best of luck with his journey to the coast. For more information about the book, please visit

Coastal art inspired by Richard Tuff                                              June 2019

Y3/4 have been painting harbours and coastal towns as part of their seaside project this term. We think that they look great - well done everyone! 

Swaledale Festival Recorder Quartet                                            June 2019

KS2 enjoyed superb recorder music this morning as part of the Swaledale Festival. We all learned about the different instruments, their pitch and their history. 

Bike club has started again...                                                        May 2019

Brass Music                                                                                   May 2019

Today, we enjoyed a super performance of music by members of Reeth and Muker Brass Bands. They played a variety of pieces and provided an opportunity for pupils to see and listen to the range of instruments in the brass family. Pupils responded very well and really enjoyed the session. We hope that some children may be interested in joining a band, with opportunities to practice in school being offered in the near future.


Hockey                                                                                          March 2019

Well done to all Y5/6 pupils who took part in the cluster hockey event.

Weaving                                                                                        February 2019

KS1 have found their project on the Great Fire of London really interesting. In art lessons they have learned to weave, creating this fantastic art work as a class.

Yorkshire Dales Moorland Group Visit                                           February 2019

A few weeks ago, as part of their study of national parks, Y5/6 pupils enjoyed an afternoon working with gamekeepers from the Yorkshire Dales Moorland Group. They learned about the management of the heather moorland and made lots of links with their scientific learning:

‘It was very useful. We learned about the different birds and the predators of the grouse.’

‘I learned why the heather is burned. It makes it easier for the grouse to feed.’

‘It was really interesting to learn about the views and opinions of the gamekeepers.’

To find out more about the work of the group, please visit their website.

High Borrans                                                                                January 2019

Year 5 and 6 pupils enjoyed a superb residential experience in the Lake District last week. They completed a range of activities including a full mountain day, canoeing, coastal rock scrambling, and underground exploration, while also extending their class based learning on mountains and national parks. The class had a superb approach to the challenges and learning experiences. They also impressed staff, from both the centre and our school, with their support for others, listening skills and excellent manners.

Prakash's Visit                                                                              November 2018

This morning we enjoyed meeting Prakash Gurung, a headteacher of a school in Nepal. It was really interesting to compare our schools and Year 5 and 6 pupils valued the chance to find out more about life in the Himalayas as part of their study of mountains this half term. 

Remembrance Assembly                                                              November 2018 

Thank you to Key Stage 2 pupils who led our remembrance service today. We were all impressed by the children's thoughts, comments and prayers that demonstrated both insight and respect.

This half term, as part of our programme of after school clubs, Key Stage 2 pupils have been busy baking with Mrs Atkinson. Well done everyone! 

Restart a Heart First Aid Training                                                October 2018

On Tuesday, Year 5 and 6 pupils learned how to provide cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) as part of a Europe-wide campaign to teach young people these life saving skills. Pupils responded really well, picking up the key learning points and demonstrating confidence when practising. Our thanks go to Stage 1 Cycles and Tim Cain, first aid trainer, who organised the session.

Rag Rug Exhibition                                                                       October 2018

During the summer term, Year 3 and 4 pupils worked with Kathryn Guy to produce some fantastic rag rugs, as part of a wider project Returning to our Roots’, organised by The International Guild of Handhooking Rugmakers. The children have received some fantastic feedback on their work and enjoyed viewing it alongside that of other artists when they visited the exhibition at Grinton Church a week ago. If you missed the exhibition, but would like to see the artwork, please do call at Reeth School where the work is on display at the moment.

School Relay                                                                                September 2018

Well done to everyone for taking part, supporting and enjoying the relay on Saturday. Two teams raced from Gunnerside to Reeth, with lots of younger runners completing a leg this year. The fastest team completed the 6 mile route in 1 hr 20m, 3 minutes slower than last year, but a great achievement considering the age of the participants - well done!

Calver Hill                                                                                    September 2018

Well done to the fell running club who all made it to the top of Calver Hill after school on Friday. 

Learning to Learn                                                                         September 2018

It's been a great start to the school year. Pupils have been enthusiastic, motivated, and focused, with some fantastic work completed already. We've been talking a lot about being ready to learn, strategies for motivation and approaches to learning to ensure that we make the best of every opportunity.
