A message from the Co-Heads of School…

We have to come to the end of week seven of our lockdown and our children learning from home and at school have all been focussing on work beginning with G.

We would like to thank Mrs Eddon and the week 7 teaching team, who have all worked hard to make the learning activities fun, interactive and educational. Miss Star shared that the children have enjoyed playing Glow in dark Games, making Gingerbread men and houses, Gardening, playing Guess Who, practising their Gymnastic skills, creating Giraffes and Ghosts, exercising using Go Noodle and watching a few of our favourite films, including the Greatest Showman! What a GREAT week!

Ebor’s Charity Challenge…Run Around The World…

All 24 schools across Ebor Academy Trust are now actively taking part in our challenge to Run Around the World.

After a busy first weekend, between all our efforts we have travelled over 3,000 kilometres.  We are regularly updating our charity web page:


Keep coming back to this website to find out our latest destination, and learn some fun facts along the way. And keep running – or walking, or cycling or wheeling – and keep logging your distances!

We have a sponsorship page www.justgiving.com/fundraising/eborworldrun, for people who are able to donate. All donations will go to charities that support the NHS. We appreciate these are financially difficult times, however, and there is no expectation to contribute. Our key objective is to stay active to feel better.

Total raised so far: £1,370.

Taking a Rainbow Walk is a simple, fun way to practice mindfulness with little ones, using our sense of sight. Focusing on the world through a single sense is a powerful way to anchor our awareness in the present moment. In this practice, we use our keen sense of observation to slow down, notice and appreciate the outdoors.
