Santa’s Socks

Please look out for the Santa’s Socks flyer coming home this week. We are inviting Key Stage 1 and 2 pupils to make a stocking for the York Learning’s Autumn Community Crafts project. All completed stockings need to be returned…

The Book Fair is coming!

The Book Fair will be on from Wednesday 14th November to Monday 19th November, from 3.15 to 3.45 in the Lower Hall. The Book Fair generates a lot of free books for each class, chosen by the children themselves, so it is well worth supporting. In order to keep the Fair from being too crowded, each phase has its own night:

  • Early Years – Wednesday 14th
  • Key Stage One – Thursday 15th
  • Year 3/4 – Friday 16th
  • Year 5/6 – Monday 19th

It will be great to see you there!

Have you checked out the YV Music Room?

The choir are sounding fantastic!  Don’t forget….

Your teachers will have to work extra hard to help you learn your songs and dance moves, so please make sure you give them all the support you can by visiting the YV Music Room – where we’ve put some fun resources for you to use at home. Such as:

  • Lyric videos – challenge your friends to see who knows the lyrics the best
  • Spotify links – listen on the go or right at home, anywhere there is wifi
  • Special extras – be sure to check in daily to see if there is a message from someone cool! Voung Voices

We sent the code home with a letter but if you have forgotten it you could ask Mrs Tessier or Mrs Spain for a reminder.  The Young Voices Music Room has all the resources you need to help you to learn those words and practise your moves ready for the big night.  Keep up the good work!

Memory Walk

On Friday 26th October we will again be having a Harry Potter themed non-uniform day in memory of Jenny Baldock who sadly passed away 2 years ago.

All pupils are invited to come into school dressed as a character from Harry Potter- Jenny was a big fan so we decided that this was a fitting tribute to her. Pupils are asked to bring in £1 donation which will go towards redeveloping the John Lally garden at school.

At 1.15pm on Friday 26th October pupils from Key Stage 1 and 2 will be going on a walk to remember our former colleague and friend. We will all be walking up to Millennium Bridge and back.

We need parent/carer volunteers to come along for the walk. If you can come along at please see your class teacher.

Thank you for your support.

School Council Election Results

Here is our school council 2018-19

Thank you to everyone who nominated themselves to be on the School Council this year. As always the results were very close and when they were announced in Friday’s celebration assembly, the response to those who had been successful was very supportive. 

Every class in Key Stage 1 and 2 has one School Council member. They will work hard to ensure that all your ideas are listened to and will help to make the school an even better place to be.
