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!

Some amazing team work took place this morning with the children of all ages grouping together to make some magnificent dens to raise money for the charity Save the Children!

Posted 16/6/2017

This week the children learned the importance of how to keep safe near lorries.  They learned about the blind spots that the driver has as well as the stopping distance of the lorries. Clambering safely into the cab of the lorry, some of the children had the experience of seeing for themselves what it was like to sit in the massive vehicle. During the experience, the children had plenty of opportunity to ask questions.
