Sporting Influence Competition Series Second Week

Posted 11/12/2018

Super Saves and Amazing Attitudes. 


Our football competition series continued this week with 8 teams coming together at Harrogate High. Playing three matches against some very high quality opposition the team worked incredibly hard and showed great teamwork. Playing indoors it was end to end competition with many shots, goals and scoring opportunities. There were super saves made by our goalkeepers throughout all three matches. Despite three defeats (0-1, 0-2 and 0-4) the team worked incredibly hard. Two of the games were incredibly close and the team worked well attacking and defending together. Very well done to all who played. You represented our schools and yourselves incredibly well.

Many thanks to Mrs Slocombe and Rvd Barbara for leading our worship in church on Thursday 6th December.  In the busy period of advent their thoughtful services enabled us to consider the many gifts we all have that require no wrapping. Through story, readings and prayer we were able to consider and reflect upon the gifts and talents we hold and our ability to give and receive friendship.

Posted 11/12/2018

Surrounding by 104 themed Christmas trees in St John's Church Knaresborough our school choir performed superbly last night. Despite being one of the smallest and definitely the youngest choir of the night they warmed they hearts of the audience with four superb performances of Christmas songs. The compliments from the audience were many including one from Revd Garry Hinchcliffe who said 'the children had stolen his heart'.

After many practice and rehearsals they sounded fantastic. Well done to all who took part and many thanks to Mrs James for organising this experience for our children.

She spoke about how this has impacted on her own life as well as her families. She reminded the children about the importance of crossing the road safely and allowed them to ask her questions. Lauren was open, honest and inspirational and the children listened extremely well.

Anti Bullying Week

Posted 16/11/2018

The children have enjoyed wearing odd socks to celebrate their individuality and they have been a good talking point this week (as was Mr. Griffiths in his red wig!) The children have taken part in some thoughtful discussion around the theme of ‘choose respect’ and the school council performed some role play in assembly. On Wednesday, the NSPCC brought their mascot ‘Buddy’ into school to deliver a workshop called ‘Speak out Stay Safe.’

All the children have now thought of five trusted people that they can talk to if they ever feel worried or unsafe.

This week we have been remembering the people who gave their lives in wars and conflicts since World War 1, by making poppies with the empty plastic bottles we asked the children to bring into school.  I think you will agree they look fantastic on the railings of school.
