The Best Game So Far.

Monday saw an incredible, hard-fought match between us and Barkston Ash. We felt a little bit of trepidation going into the game as Barkston beat us 7 - 1 before Christmas. However, we have been well-trained by Mr. Scoreby and despite not playing together as a team recently, it gave us the opportunity to showcase our brilliance.

Festival Food

The children are currently, excitedly, looking up traditional Mexican recipes that they can prepare and make in school. Mrs O will be working alongside small groups of children on our healthy eating curriculum in our new teaching space to produce some delicious drinks and snacks. We'll be asking children to bring in the ingredients over the course of the term and thank you in advance for your support.

Hola Mexico!

Please find attached the newsletter and homework for our current topic. Dates for submitting homework are listed on the newsletter. Homework books are still due in every Friday.

Stargazers

Welcome back to the children. This term we'll be viewing the night skies - not just for fireworks but also for stars and planets as part of our new topic. Please find attached the newsletter and homework sheet. I'm sure you'll spot the deliberate mistake. Homework is due on Friday 16th November, Friday 30th November and Friday 14th December and not the dates written on the sheet. I can only blame a long half term for my error.

Tournament Winners!

Congratulations to our Year 5 team who won the football tournament held at Riverside. We were incredibly proud of both teams and Mrs O'Sullivan could not wait to share the news with staff and pupils back at school.

Swimming, Rugby and Football

Just a reminder for parents that swimming lessons for our year 1 and year 2 children commence on Monday 10th September. Any children in years 3 - 6 who would benefit from lessons are also able to go in the autumn term. Please ask your class teacher for a letter and payment details.

Letters will be going out soon to children in KS2 interested in joining the York City Knights after-school Rugby club. This will start at 3.15pm on Tuesday 11th September. YCK do ask that payment is made on the first session. Thank you.

Darwin's Delights

Welcome back to our Year 5 and Year 6 children.

Please find attached the newsletter and homework sheets that the children will be given on their return to school. Children can choose any 3 pieces of topic homework to be handed in on Friday 21st September, Friday 5th October and Friday 19th October.

Tribal Tales

We're very excited about our new topic - Tribal Tales - which will take us back to the Stone Age (no internet!)

Attached are our newsletter and homework details. Grammar and maths books will still be coming home on Monday. Please return to school on Friday for marking.
