Thank you to all the parents who came along to the harvest service at St James’ Church this afternoon. The children read out their poems, readings and prayers beautifully.
Our choir will be performing at the Wetherby harvest festival this Sunday in church and as some of you may have seen, we have entered the scarecrow competition!
Here is James, the fisherman!
Open morning for prospective 2019 parents / carers
Posted on 08 October 2018 by Mrs Craggs
If you’re looking for a Reception place for your child, we’re holding our open morning on Tuesday 06 November at 9.30am. This is an opportunity for you to come and visit the school, ask any questions you may have, and be shown around by some of our Year 6 children. No appointment needed – just turn up.
Parents' evening coming up
Posted on 08 October 2018 by Mr Roundtree
The first of two parent-teacher meetings are coming up soon: 23 October and 25 October. At these meetings, you’ll notice a small change.
In the annual survey of parents and carers, a small number mentioned that they would prefer more frequent updates about their child’s progress. We’ve acted on this by changing when we provide you with the Learning Updates. These were previously given to you at parents’ evening. However, this year, we’ll send these home at the end of the Autumn and Spring terms. This means you’ll have an update at the end of Autumn 1 (the parents’ evening), Autumn 2 (the Learning Update), Spring 1 (the second parents’ evening), Spring 2 (the second Learning Update), and then the end of year report in the Summer.
As always, Miss Beatson will be around to hear your questions, compliments and concerns with these arrangements.

There is no need to book: parents/carers can just turn up on the first session or ring the number provided on the leaflet if you have any questions.
What wonderful writing!
Posted on 03 October 2018 by Mr Roundtree
All classes in school have a class novel on the go. Y5,6 are enjoying the modern classic, Kensuke’s Kingdom this half-term.
This morning, our older children in Y5,6 have been writing a diary entry from a character’s perspective.
Have a read of this great writing – well done, Mya!
…Mya’s not finished the diary yet. If your child is in Y5,6, have a chat with how the diary entry could continue!

We spotted on social media this week this lovely comment from a parent about our school:
‘I can’t recommend it enough. Lovely small class sizes. A new headteacher making positive changes. All the teachers are lovely and know all the children. Both my children are so happy and making fantastic progress.’
Thank you very much. We all appreciate this heart-warming praise.
