New Term!

Posted 8/9/2017

It has been a fantastic start to the new term this week, with children settling in well already.  They all looked super smart and proud in their school uniforms as they came back to school!

There has been some changes to the classrooms, main entrance and the outside play areas too!  

Outside, the children have a brand new stage to use not only at playtime, but also for lessons. It just needs a few more finishing touches, but the children have already been accessing it! It is going to be a magnificent resource.  They were also excited to discover they have a new fort in the Sensory Garden. 

We have installed a screen in the main entrance which presents a slide show of photographs to give a representation of what the children learn and get up to in school.  This is an extension of the photographs that we put on the web site.  If you come into school, please take a few minutes to take a look; you'll be amazed at the things that the children do throughout their school life here at Sowerby!  Thank you.

Leavers Assembly

Posted 3/9/2017

The Year 6 children, as usual, did themselves;their parents and the school proud as they said a final farewell before they advance into their new beginnings at Secondary School !

As well as acting out a mock reunion, and reading out an apt poem, they also won some awards.  The first award was for the annual traditional Readman Trophy.  This is an award for the best nature project. The award was started by a Deputy Head teacher, Mrs. Readman, that worked here many years ago at Sowerby School. There were some amazing entries and the staff found it difficult to judge them as they were of such a high standard. Well done to all the children for taking part and putting such a lot of effort and time into their chosen projects.

Also, Thirsk Rotary Club present The Endeavour Award every year for an outstanding member of Year 6.  This pupil is not necessarily chosen for their academic achievements, but for their attitude towards the school, their piers, the staff and their overall attitude to their work and effort they put in.  This year we were proud to announce the award deservedly goes to Ben Kelly !  Well done !

We would like to thank all of the Year 6 pupils for all of their hard work throughout their time at our school and also to their parents and guardians for their support over the years!  We wish the children every success for the future - whatever their choices are, and we will always give them a warm welcome if they take time out of their busy lives to come and visit us; we always like to have a chat and a catch up!

Sowerby Gateway Visit

Posted 21/7/2017

Seven children from the Film/ICT after school club, took a walk to Sowerby Gateway this afternoon to interview the builders and the Sales Representative for Mulberry Homes.

Mulberry Homes generously bought every year group an iPad to use in school which the club members have been using for their club as well as around the school during their school day and on school trips.  Today, the group took the opportunity to interview Melanie and some of the builders on site about the houses and building site.  All the questions were thought of by the children, some of which included, "How many houses are there on site? What inspired you to become a builder? How will this improve Sowerby? Why did you build the Premier Inn?"

A big thank you to Mulberry Homes and Moody Bros. for allowing us to take a look around some of the properties on site.

A group of Y5/6 pupils have taken it upon themselves to organise a couple of fund raising events. It makes us very proud that they are thoughtful and caring enough to think of others in this way and we want to support their efforts.

Alex was selling lollies to raise money for Macmillan cancer alongside a sponsored cycle ride in August, which he is completing with family members. Mia , Mollie and Alex C  are running a craft fair to raise money for Diabetes.

Well done to all the children, and a big thank you to everyone who purchased something!

A Trip To Saltburn

Posted 14/7/2017

Children in Year 1 had a wonderful and well deserved trip to the seaside this week!  They went to sunny Saltburn and enjoyed a day on the beach digging, making sandcastles and doing some art and design with resources they found on the beach.  Of course a trip to the seaside wouldn't be complete without a paddle in the sea!

Carlton Lodge

Year 4 had a fantastic experience recently at the local activity centre at Carlton Lodge.  

As well as canoeing on the residential  visit, the children made dens, took part in kayaking, archery and raft building to name but a few. 

With over 30 years experience in providing safe, enjoyable activities for young people, Carlton Lodge is the perfect place for our children to learn new skills with the qualified and experienced staff.
 
Carlton Lodge has its own lake for water sports and a newly refurbished climbing wall.  All the children had a brilliant time team building and pushing their skills to the limit!
