A message from the Head of School…
Last week the children were busy applying their maths skills across the wider curriculum. At Haxby Road we regularly participate in fundraising activities, which give our children the opportunity to use their maths knowledge. We compared totals raised by Children in Need over a number of years and made amounts using a specified number of coins. We will also be supporting Crisis at Christmas again this year to raise money for the homeless.
This week Year 5 and 6 went to the Railway Museum as part of their Materials topic in Science and on Wednesday Year 5 went to the Chicken House authors roadshow. They enjoyed meeting the authors and are reading the signed books in our class library.
After School Club Notice
Please can we remind all parents and carers to select the days you would like your child to attend After School Club when adding credit to the pupils account. Thank you for your support.
Next Friday is our Christmas Fair starting at 2:00pm in the Upper Hall. As part of the Fair, we are asking all children to come in non-uniform and bring a bottle. The Bring a Bottle is a long-standing tradition at our Christmas Fair that everyone enjoys. We look forward to see all our families at the Fair.
