A message from the Co-Heads of School…

This week in school has taken our learning to the letter O.  Miss Wilkinson and her children have had a very active week:

“This week two of the bubbles have been focusing on the theme of the Olympics for O week. Each day, the children have competed in Olympic style events! They held an Opening ceremony and will also be hosting a Medal ceremony. The children have really enjoyed learning about different athletes as well as learning new physical skills. We are excited to see who wins the gold medal on Friday! Children from Reception at home have also been entering the events to develop their skills!”


Goodbye and Thank you…

With only a few weeks left of term, we will be saying Goodbye to Mrs Winter on the 15th July. Mrs Winter has been an absolute super star and has helped to lead our school through such difficult and unusual circumstances. I know that she will be missed by all the children and staff. From myself personally, I would like to say a huge thank you to Mrs Winter and I wish her the best of luck with her new role and responsibilities within the Ebor Trust.

On Monday 13th July, we look forward to welcoming Miss Woodward as she returns from maternity leave. She is so excited about returning and has missed all the children and staff. I’m sure she will have lots to catch up on and will be very pleased to see how school has been running through lockdown.

77% of our parents have now downloaded and registered for the Parent Hub App. We hope more parents will join soon as we will be sending all letters out via this App as of September.


School Uniform

Ms Martin and Mrs Malster-Hinett have been sorting through lost property and spare uniform. Uniform that is named will be put next to your child’s books for collection.

Unnamed uniform will be put to one side for anyone to claim if they need or are short of something.


Creative Challenge

Make a hug!

Some of you are really missing some very special people in your lives – it might be nice to send a hug to them and these can even be posted. Paint your hands, print onto paper and allow to dry. Cut out, staple onto a length of ribbon and you can send your hugs to whoever you want to. You can even make a lovely card to send along with it in the post!


Try some of these childhood favourites to keep your mind active, whilst providing a brain break from schoolwork: Memory games – put some items on a tray, cover with a tea towel and see how many you can remember. Take turns with adults or children choosing the items. Giant jigsaw – keep out on a tray or board if you’ve space, see who can get most pieces placed in – great for rainy days. Hide objects and child looks for them, say they are getting cold when they are going further away and they are getting hot as they get nearer. See the link for more memory games.
