Sports Win !

Posted 14/12/2018

On Thursday we were able to take Year 5/6 children to Thirsk Area Sports Hall athletics 

On the morning, athletes performed really well, coming a close second to Alanbrooke. On the afternoon, some exceptional performances in a tough competition saw the team come back to school Champions - with an invite to the Hambleton Area Finals. 
All of our children displayed great team spirit, supporting each other and showing true sportsmanship - qualities which make them true Sowerby Champions. Well done everyone!

WW1 Historian Special Visitor

Posted 14/12/2018

A local resident of Sowerby took time out of his busy schedule this week to come into school to talk about WW!.

Year 5 and 6's topic this term is WW1 and to help them learn more about it, Mr. Steve Billings came into school with several different artefacts for the children to see and investigate. 

After a talk about the topic, Mr. Billings took questions from the children.  Afterwards, he commented that the children had a good general knowledge about the topic and the questions they asked him showed how they were thinking in depth about the subject.  This was the second year Mr. Billings has come into school to do a presentation and hopefully he will be able to come again next year to share his vast knowledge with the children.  Thank you again Mr. Billings!

Christmas Fair

Posted 7/12/2018

Father Christmas stole the show this afternoon at our annual Christmas Fair.  Children and their families queued up to to have a chat with Santa. He had a lovely grotto in the school library with his own special Santa chair.

Also at the fair, there were plenty of stalls and activities to chose from including painting Christmas baubles, tombola, raffle, homemade door wreaths, and of course an opportunity to purchase some reindeer food.  During the fair if anyone fancied a nice hot cup of tea, they were serving it up in one of the classrooms.

A big thank you to FOSS and all their helpers for organising the event! We always appreciate all their continued support and all the support of our children's parents.
