School Vision Captured in community Art Project

Posted 11/10/2019

Children at Follifoot CE Primary School are enjoying sharing their art and design work with all who visit the school via their outdoor Mosaic. At the end of last year, children enjoyed a series of lesson delivered by school in partnership with local charity Craft Aid. The charity that support adults with learning differences helped the children and design and create this fantastic outdoor Mosaic which now takes pride of place outside the front entrance to the school. The children created the wonderful design incorporating our Vision of ‘Love, Learn, Thrive’ and then worked as a whole class to create the mosaic from hundreds of tile pieces.

Head teacher Paul Griffiths said ‘It was lovely to see the children and adults working so closely together to produce such a brilliant piece of work’. Working in partnership with charities such as Craft Aid helps prepare our children to be active citizens making positive contributions to their communities.

Following the completion of the project the children took a collection following their end of year production and were delighted to make a £60 donation to the work of Craft Aid.

Well done and huge thanks to everyone involved in this project.

Sporting Influence-Week Two

Posted 20/9/2019
We all enjoyed another evening up at Harrogate High tonight for week two of our football completion series. After a reminder from Mr Moss about the Sporting Values we always work on of respect, communication and body language we got straight into our three matches against Bilton Grange, New Park and Grove Road.
As always our Federation team did us proud showing great teamwork, skill, and commitment in all matches. We started with a 2-1 win against New Park with two goals and an amazing goal line clearance in the last ten seconds from Louis. The second game was a hard fount battle with Grove Road. Some amazing goalkeeping from Ava helped keep the score to 0-0 until the very last second when Bilton finally broke through the stout 'Spollifoot' defence to sneak a 1-0 win. The final games was also a narrow 1-0 defeat but with plenty of chances for both teams. Very well played to all who took part.

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.

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.

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.
