Some of our Year 4 children enjoyed a range of ‘digital’ activities at an event which was held at Catterick Leisure Centre this week. The Swaledale Alliance organised the day, which was attended by a number of local schools. The children worked really well in their groups and were able to try some new resources, such as: Crumble Controllers; QR Readers; MagicTatts and Osmo Coding to name but a few.
On Friday 16th September 2016 Matthew, Tom, Elena and Harli were invited to a tennis tournament at Northallerton Tennis Club to participate in a competition. It was a doubles competition (unmixed). There were 6 schools including us there. It was group stages and both of the two teams won their group stage. Then there was the quarter-finals which the boys won 10-4 and the girls narrowly won at the score 5-4. The semis were a different matter , where the boys bossed them 10-1 and the girls won 7-4!!!! The finals were tense but both teams came out on top with the boys winning 10-5 and the girls winning 6-4. We were awarded gold medals and a cheer from our friends when we got back to school!!!
Overall it was a good day for sport!!!

Thank you to everyone who supported the Spring Fair. We raised £266 and had a super afternoon! Well done to all the children who entered the various competitions.
Our new playground equipment has been installed and is now officially open for use! On Monday, each class had their own playtime slot in order to try out the new trim trail and climbing frame. We are going to share the equipment on a rota basis throughout the week so that everyone can enjoy themselves without having to queue for too long! Thank you to everybody who helped to make the project possible.
Well done to everyone for a SUPER performance of Wizard of Oz!
After much preparation, the Spring Fair was finally here. Nearly everybody in the school attended, even though they didn’t need to. It took place between 2pm and 4pm on Saturday 21st March. Overall, the school raised an incredible total of £323.73.
As you may have noticed (because it was on the news many times) there was a Solar Eclipse on Friday 20th March. Did you see it? The pupils certainly did. At 9:25 we all came out and instantly looked up. The sky didn’t disappoint. Right up there, it was already happening. 90% of the Sun was covered by the Moon passing by. It was a wonderful sight, all of the children were enthralled by the awesome moment. A one (if you’re lucky, two) in a lifetime experience. It was a shame the clouds spoiled the moment; though everybody caught a glimpse of the natural phenomenon. Most people wandered back into their classrooms bewildered by the wonder they had just seen.

Tuesday 17th March marked a delayed Red Nose Day. The reason it wasn’t on Friday, you ask. Well, you can’t let the Year 6s miss out on the fun can you?
8:45am – Children turn up in all sorts of masks and their donations.
3:30pm – Purple class stalls; Cakes, Bracelets, Nails, DVDs and much more.
Overall, a very good day with the school raising a total of £126.31. Thank you for your help.

We’ve all arrived back safe and sound with a great experience under our belts. All of the Year 6s enjoyed it. Most of us wanted to do every single activity again and spend another week at the Centre. A few of us even wanted to take up one of the interesting activities as a hobby! We’re all getting back to normal life though will remember that week for decades to come.
On the last day we had a walk around Whitby. Here are some of the photos:
