Hi Everyone,

Another busy half term has flown by! We have had a visit from Ofsted and it was pleasing that the hard work of the children and the staff was recognised as well as the important role that parents play in making sure our children reach for the stars! Thank you again to all those parents who took the time to take part in the Parent View survey for Ofsted. It is great to hear that you support and encourage our work in school.

It has been lovely to welcome Y1 parents for lunch; the children really do enjoy you being there. We are pleased that the poet, Paul Cookson was back with us this year and was as popular as ever. His workshops and assembly were a perfect start to Book Week and it was lovely to hear from parents how much the children enjoy reading his poems. We have had two great assemblies from Y1 and everyone is looking forward to seeing Reception's assembly this morning. The Y1 trip to Skipton Castle may have been cold but it was a great success. I think the guides at the castle are concerned that our children will take their jobs as they know so much! Everyone enjoyed British Science week and there were some great experiments on behalf of Tim Peake and his fellow astronauts!

Thanks again to PSA for organising the Sponsored Bounce-it is fast becoming a highlight of the school year. We also managed to fit in Big Yellow Friday and install a new ball catcher on the playground-as well as doing some high quality learning!

Have a lovely break and we will see you all on Monday 18th April.

Ms Lowry
