WELCOME BACK !

Posted 7/9/2018

A Warm Welcome Back ! 

It has been an excellent first week and the children are all settling in well after the summer holidays and looking smart in their school uniforms. We have seen some very positive attitudes to learning already and some brilliant manners. Children are making new friends and there will be opportunities to join clubs too throughout the term. Newsletters will be given out and updates will be put on the website.  Any queries, please feel free to email, telephone or pop into the office - you are always welcome.

We hope you have an enjoyable weekend and look forward to seeing the children at 8.50 a.m. on Monday!

Leavers Assembly

Posted 20/7/2018

Year 6 put on a moving leavers assembly this afternoon with lots of trips down memory lane.  

While a slide show of photographs played in the background, the children recounted different memories from their time at Sowerby School including school trips such as Carlton Lodge and East Barnby. Songs were sung, poems recited and tears flowed as the assembly progressed.  

During the assembly we had some special visitors! Thirsk Rotary Club came to present the annual Endeavour Award.  This award is presented at the end of every school year to a Year 6 pupil who has shown the most endeavour over the last year more than any other pupil. The winning pupil is gifted a shield to keep at home, while the school receives a larger shield to put on display pride of place. This year we are pleased to announce that Melissa Woods deservedly wins the award!  Well done Melissa!

Also, we were very proud to present another award. This award is the Readman Trophy.  This award is in memory of a past Deputy Head, Mrs. Readman.  She started the award and we have traditionally carried the award on over the years. 

The Year 6 pupils work from home making a nature project.  The project can be in any form such as a book, a poster or a model for example.  The winner receives a book token and a beautiful carved wooden owl to keep for a year. Well done Layla Till for your amazing project about crabs!  There was clearly a lot of information in this project as well as a lot of work that went into it. It received the most votes from all the staff. Not forgetting to say a massive well done to all the other pupils for taking part as they too, produced some magnificent quality projects!

It just remains now to wish all our magnificent Year 6 pupils a happy, healthy and successful future in whatever they do. They are all super stars!  We always want to know how they are getting on so don't forget to pop in and keep us posted!

Macbeth

Posted 13/7/2018

"I can't believe that children this age can understand Macbeth let alone act it out to such a high standard."  This was a comment from one of the parents who was in the audience of our recent Year 5 and 6 performance.

All the hard work put in by the children to learn their lines paid off this week as the children performed to the school as well as their families. The acting and singing was magnificent and a big well done to all those who sang solo!

We are very proud of the children for all their hard work and thank you to parents for their continued support!

Carlton Lodge

Year 4 spent three days recently at our local activity centre, Carlton Lodge.  They had an amazing time doing several different activities which included: archery, bushcraft, canoeing, climbing and zip-wire. All the activities were lead by trained staff at the centre. The children worked independently but mostly in teams working together building trust and problem solving.

Afternoon Tea

Posted 13/7/2018

FOSS pulled out all the stops this week.....or should we say all the cakes?

Two pupils  stood up to say a big thank you to FOSS this week for organising a magnificent afternoon tea party for Mrs. Mount's class of Year 5 and 6.  

The children earned the special treat because their cake stall raised the most money out of the whole school's cake stalls over the last year.  

FOSS members not only organised the afternoon tea, but they baked all the delicious cakes themselves!  There was a varied selection of cakes, scones, sausage rolls as well as tea, water and juice to drink.  Parents and family members were invited to come too!

Visit from Jenny Meadows

Posted 15/6/2018

We had a visit from Olympic runner Jenny Meadows this week.  She spent time with the children giving them a talk about her career and giving them advice for a sporting career. 

Jenny is one of Britain’s leading female athletes and an amazing role model for children. She has represented Great Britain since 2000 when she was  part of Great Britain Juniors relay team.

After some injuries in 2012 and 2013, which unfortunately resulted Jenny missing her chance to compete in her home Olympics, Jenny returned to competitive action to become Commonwealth Games finalist in 2014. Also, she became the world leader in the women’s 800m indoors in 2015.

North Yorkshire Police Lifestyle Challenge

Posted 8/6/2018

North Yorkshire Police paid a visit to school this week to explain the recent Lifestyle Challenge.  The Year 5 and 6 children took inspiration from the talk and video about how they can use their spare summer time in a positive way to help local people and their local environment. 

The ideas spread to Year 3 and 4 and at playtime some children decided to do a litter pick event on the school field where litter can blow onto the school grounds.  Well done everyone for your brilliant attitude and for spreading the message in assembly!
