News November to December 2018

December 2018 - Christingle

The children celebrated Christingle at St Anne's Church as it was a great opportunity to bring our community together, to share the Christian story and experience the joy of this Christmas tradition. The children shared prayers, re-told bible readings and sang some of our favourite hymns.

The children were a real asset to the school and were very sensible when holding the Christingles. A massive thank you to all parents and family members who were able to help and join us, it was great to see so many of you! Thank you to Tesco who donated the oranges and sweets. A memorable afternoon.

December 2018 - Water Polo Competition

An absolutely wonderful effort at the water polo competition at Bedale Leisure Centre. Out of 26 children taking part, 16 were from our school! Everyone had a brilliant time at an event which we had never done before. We ended up coming away with the winners trophy too! Not a bad afternoon! A huge thank you has to go to our parents for getting everyone there and for the support during the afternoon.

Thank you to Bedale Sharks who organised the event. Training for the water polo team is on a Tuesday night, 6.30pm to 7.30pm at Bedale Leisure Centre.

December 2018 - Christmas Dinner Day!

We have had a brilliant Christmas Jumper and Christmas Dinner day. There certainly were some empty plates at the end of lunch! A massive thank you to Mrs Sumners and Mrs Coultish for providing another delicious dinner.

December 2018 - Christmas Crafternoon

Thank you to everyone who was able to attend our Christmas Crafternoon. We all had a wonderful time and it was lovely to have you all in our classes. We are fairly sure we will be tidying up glitter until July...but never mind!

December 2018 - Youth Sport Trust

Mr Saunders spent the day in the Houses of Parliament - NOT talking about Brexit! He was supporting the Youth Sport Trust in engaging 31 MPs and peers in conversation about the value of PE and school sport and making the case for a more ambitious, joined-up, long-term approach from government. As a result of the meetings...

  • 19 MPs agreed to become School Sport Champions
  • 13 agreed to table parliamentary questions
  • 11 said they would send a letter to Damian Hinds (Education Secretary) to share our asks for the upcoming School Sport and Activity Action Plan
  • Two have offered to try to secure a Westminster Hall debate on PE and school sport

We have seen the value of PE, School Sport and Physical Activity in our school for children in a range of ways, from clubs, PE lessons and active play times to competitions and general overall improved well-being.

December 2018 - STEM Club

In STEM club , the children created their own Rudolfs and Elves using balloons. Once they had blown it up, they attached a grip onto the end of the balloon so no air would escape and decorated it. They then attached a straw onto the top and threaded some string through it. Once the balloons were on the string, the children took off the grip and the Rudolf's and Elves zoomed off, well most of them! Well done guys!

November 2018 - Girls Football Tournament

A massive well done to our girls footballers in their tournament which was held at our school. We entered two teams who played superbly together in some very tough matches. We were certainly not short of fighting spirit and determination! Our 'red and black' team won 2 and drew one of their matches, making it through to the semi finals where unfortunately they were beaten. Our 'blue and black' team drew one and lost two of their matches. We are very proud of them all. Click HERE for full results.

November 2018 - Anti-Bullying Week

Magnificent work from our gymnasts at this year's competition held at Richmond School! Our year 3/4 and year 5/6 teams both finished 4th in their competitions. We took 2 year 1/2 teams.

November 2018 - Children in Need

For Children in Need, Year 5 set up a glorious cafe with the assistance of Mrs Illingworth and Miss Huxstable, where our friends and family could come and join us to raise awareness of Children in Need. We had lots of fun whilst eating cake, drinking juice and raising lots of money. Thank you to everyone that came!

Across the day, we have raised a staggering £380 for Children in Need. An amazing achievement (and with a class missing at East Barnby!) Thank you for your support.❤️

November 2018 - Year 3/4 visit Ryedale Folk Museum

Year 3 and 4 visited the Ryedale Folk Museum to gain a greater understanding of Anglo-Saxon life. We explored the Anglo-Saxon village, where we found the Chief's house, investigated an Anglo-Saxon home where we tried bread and Anglo-Saxon honey, we were taught about threshing and winnowing and learnt how to write like an Anglo-Saxon.

The children had a fantastic day and were a real asset to the school! Thank you to the Ryedale Folk Museum for having us!
