A message from the Co-Heads of School…

We would like to say a huge thank you to parents and children for recognising the ‘National Thank A Teacher Day’. The teachers and assistant teachers in school this week received cards and some extremely tasty treats from the children.

This week in school, we have had a very busy week from ice investigations to Indigenous populations. On Monday morning, we hunted across the school grounds for different insects. In the afternoon, we looked at Impressionism and created our own pieces. On Tuesday, we spent the day learning about Indigenous populations, creating our own dream-catchers. Wednesday sent glorious sunshine our way and we thought about what made us who we are after Mrs. Malster treated the whole school with ice-cream! Today we have investigated ice melting and dissolving… and we had a sweet hunt! Delicious! Overall, we have had an excellent week and the children have all been brilliant!

While We Can’t Hug!

As we plan to make preparations for reintegrating children in to school – we thought that this lovely video will help to support how children can think about social distancing.

A Tasty Treat From Nuffield

Marcel Falkowski, Year 6 :

“I would like to thank Richard from Nuffield Health for making all the children smile in school when they received a tasty Haribo treat.

I would also like to say a big well done to Richard and his colleagues at Nuffield for doing a super job!”

Thank you from all the children at Haxby Road Primary Academy.


Have a go at creating A Glitter Jar

Glitter jars are a useful mindfulness tool at home and school. Watching the glitter swirl to the bottom of the jar gives kids time to calm down and regain control.
