Reporter Comes To School !

Posted 23/1/2018

We were privileged to have a visit from a newspaper reporter this week.  It wasn't to interview our children or staff about a news story; no, it was to talk about what the job of a reporter entails and what skills one needs for the job. The children have been learning about newspaper reports as part of their literacy lessons recently. 

The reporter spent an hour with each Year 5 and 6 class, showing them the skills they needed including how to write shorthand. The children also worked together to write their own newspaper report !

Our Christmas Fair was a huge success recently, raising funds yet again for the school.  Thank you to everyone who attended, including FOSS for helping organise and run it. We also would like to thank the parents and children yet again for their ever generosity of donating prizes for the raffles, tombolas and the hampers!  Well done to all the winners.  Unfortunately Santa could not make it this year, but we were fortunate to have two Santa helpers to deliver letters to him.

Children have been learning all about WW1 as part of their topic in Year 5 and 6.  They have been doing art work as well as writing poems.  There will be a large wall display of their amazing work soon to go up in the school. 

The children have also made a poppy wreath to show their respects to lay on the monument at St. Oswalds church in Sowerby on Sunday.  Mrs. Mount will be there to represent the school.

A Midwife Crisis !

KS1 Christmas production was amazing this week showing a modern interpretation of the story of the birth of baby Jesus.

The children showed off their acting skills and looked confident on stage as they recited their well rehearsed lines.  They all looked the part too in their fabulous costumes.  Thanks go to everyone involved in the production, especially to the children themselves for their star performances!

Christmas Musical Concert

Posted 23/1/2018

Christmas has really come to Sowerby School this week, as we celebrated with a wonderful Christmas musical concert.

Parents watched as children entertained their audience by playing different musical instruments such as piano, flutes, recorders, saxophones, violins, drums and clarinets.  To complete the concert, the choir sang a Christmas mix of songs and carols.  

Many thanks go to  all of the music teachers, to the pupils for practicing their pieces and of course, the parents for supporting their children with their practicing.  

We know the children spend a lot of time practicing and rehearsing for these special events, and are very proud of what they accomplish. We hope that the concert has inspired others to take up learning a musical instrument or join the choir.

WW1 Expert Visitor

Posted 24/11/2017

A local Sowerby resident, Mr. Billings, visited our Year 5 and 6 pupils this week to give a talk about WW1.

He spent time in each of the three Year 5 and 6 classes showing photographs as well as artefacts that he has found on his trips to France.  The children had an opportunity to ask questions at the end of the sessions after Mr. Billings told the children a little about some of the brave men from Sowerby who joined the army to fight in the war for their country.

Mr. Billings commented that he was impressed with the childrens knowledge, interest and respect they have for the topic.

Mr. Billings has spent several years not only researching WW1, but he has also researched the names listed on the war memorial  outside St. Oswalds church in Sowerby.  Mr. Billings has written a book about these brave men who many lost their lives in the war.  To read more information about Mr. Billings findings, click on the link below.
