Year Six Pause for Thought

Posted 15/7/2019

Year Six took time on  the afternoon of Tuesday 9th July to pause for thought. During this incredibly busy summer term of productions, sports fixture's, transition events, leavers events and school trips we took some time to pause and reflect. In the quiet and peaceful surroundings of Spofforth Church guided by staff and supported by Reverend Barbara and Reader Mrs Slocomb the children had the opportunity to reflect on their time at school considering their achievements. Children also reflected on moving on and the skills and attitudes they will take with them on their journey.

Many thanks to the children who suggested this and to Mrs James, Rvd Barbara and Mrs Slocombe for planning and leading.

Federation London Visit

Posted 9/7/2019

In their final trip of their primary school experience children in Year Six from across the Federation visited London and the end of last week.

In a jam-packed day the children managed to visit Westminster Abbey, Downing Street, The Houses of Parliament and the London Eye.

Arriving in London via a rather noisy Lords Cricket ground hosting a world cup fixture children ate the lunch in the peaceful and tranquil surroundings of Westminster Abbey cloisters. Following this they were able to tour the Abbey taking in the enormity and splendour of the building with such history and importance. 

It was then a short walk from the Abbey down Whitehall to see what is arguably the most famous front door in the world. No peering through the gates though for us! We were lucky enough to be able to walk down Downing Street right to the front door seeing first-hand the home of the Prime Minster and the heart of the cabinet.

Having posed for a photo or 50, it was tie to head back to the Palace of Westminster better known as the Houses of Parliament.  The children were then able to tour parliament visiting both the House of Lords and the House of Commons as well as voting lobby’s and Westminster Hall.  Following their tour children took part in a workshop on laws and debating where they debated their proposed bill to ban single use plastics. They were also joined for this by Selby and Ainsty MP Nigel Adams who answered some challenging questions from the children and from a few of the adults too!

The final part of our visit took us over the river via Westminster Bridge for a flight on the London Eye. In beautiful sunshine it was possible to see for miles taking in many of London’s historic landmarks.

Huge thanks to the staff and volunteers who made this trip possible.

Chance of a Life Time with Chance to Shine

Posted 9/7/2019

Children from Years 5&6 in the Federation took part in an amazing day of cricket activities and workshops in Partnership with Yorkshire County Cricket Foundation and Chance to Shine. 

In the morning the children created their own Cricket Word Cup themed dance and took part in a workshop to negotiate a new shirt sponsor contract for YCC. There was some fierce negotiation in the boardroom with deal struck just in time for lunch!

In the afternoon bathed in glorious sunshine, the children undertook a cricket skills workshop developing their fielding skills as well as the chance to play pairs cricket. The highlight of the day without a doubt though was a batting master class from former England captain and cricket legend Michael Vaughan. Michael was very generous with his time passing on top batting tips and allowing the children to attempt bowl at him. There were several successful wicket takers and a fantastic day was had by all. Huge thanks to Yorkshire Cricket Foundation, Chance to Shine and also Taylors of Harrogate for making this day possible for our children.

Rural Schools Transition Day -Thursday 27th June 2019

Posted 28/6/2019

We were delighted once again to host the Rural Schools Transition Day welcoming children from ten other rural schools to our Federation. In total there were 135 children from Year 6 with us today. In glorious sunshine children were involved in four workshops including drumming, drama, orienteering and juggling skills. The children were in groups based on their transition to secondary school enabling them to spend valuable time with children from other schools who will move to the same secondary school as them. It was a pleasure to see emerging early friendships forming and children gaining in confidence as they begin to others. Many thanks to all who supported the event today.
