Thank you for supporting your children with some fantastic creative homework on our termly topic 'Evolution'. This was fantastic!
This term pupils also have their new revision guides at home now:
These can be used for children to revise and recap on what they have been learning in lessons (at home) or to have a quick look at what we are going to be doing in the next few sessions at school. They are also a very helpful reference for supporting your children with their homework .

Thank you for continuing to support us with your child's learning.


Victorian School Day

On Wednesday 9th of November we are having a Victorian School Day. Pupils will experience just what a school day was like on the Victorian times- chanting times tables, working on chalk boards, reciting important quotes, girls sewing lessons, boys woodwork lessons etc.
We ask that pupils come dressed appropriately. You can get involved as much as you like. Boys can simply wear skirts and a blouse and boys could come with their  shirt tucked in and their trousers rolled up or you could explore even more traditional options:

-Boys would wear a waistcoat or jumper under their jacket.

-Some boys wore a cap or even a bowler type hat, but these would not be worn indoors.

-The most prominent feature of the schoolgirl was the white cotton apron, often trimmed with lace

-The normal schoolgirl dress would be knee length and be of a dark cotton or woollen material, often black and would be worn with long black stockings.

-The shoes would be flat and boot like.

-They may have won a bonnet, especially on special days, but often they just had their head uncovered, often wearing white ribbons in the hair.

The pupils will have a fantastic day and we will post some pictures for you to admire.

Thanks for your support

Mrs Sunley and Mrs Porter

Booster Trip
Some pupils have been working extremely hard, followed our schools very well and completed homework and home learning regularly, so they have been invited to go on an exciting bowling trip. Children will be leaving at 9.30am, and should be returned by home time. They will not need to bring packed lunches because they will be enjoying their lunch out.

York Museum
Unfortunately, due to lack of payments made we are having to cancel this trip.
