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!

Karate Medal Winner Visit

Posted 25/5/2018

Seb Miles, a past pupil, took time out this week to come back to Sowerby Primary Academy and talk about his determination with his favourite sport - karate.

As well as competing and winning several local competitions, he is now entering on the international level travelling to Finland.

In the question and answer session, we learned how long he has been involved in karate and how much practice he puts in. He modestly showed us his medals, belts and trophies which he has earned over the last four years.

We were all very proud of Seb for everything he has accomplished.  He clearly is a very dedicated and hard working person and an excellent role model to children.  We wish him all the best for future competitions and we look forward to him visiting us again soon!
