NEWS FROM HUSTHWAITE PRIMARY SCHOOL & APPLE TREE NURSERY

  

 As ever, the autumn term is a long one and there has been LOTS going on. 

 

SPORTING SUCCESS

For the 3rd consecutive year we have been awarded the Schools Games Gold Award - this reflects our school’s commitment for encouraging, promoting and facilitating all pupils to participate in a variety of sporting events throughout the school year.  This term the school has participated in:

  • cluster football and rugby tournaments

  • cluster cross country with the first 6 qualifying for the next round.  Willow Armitage finished first and represented school in the area competition

  • cluster sportshall competition

 

STAY & PLAY DAYS

It has been lovely to welcome lots of new faces to our weekly ‘stay and play’ toddler session which is held every Thursday 9-10am.  Crafts and play have been the focus with each child proudly taking home their own wonderful creations.

 

HOLLYWOOD AT SCHOOL!

Children enjoyed an ‘Oscars’ themed Book Fair earlier in the term with everyone arriving  dressed in their glamorous clothes as they walked the red carpet and posed for paparazzi photos.  An ‘Oscars’ party was also held after school

 

BIKEABILITY

Y6 once again participated in NYCC’s  bikeability scheme with a 100% pass rate.  Great to know we are encouraging safe cycling.

 

AUSTRALIA

The whole school topic is currently ‘Australia’.  Children have been looking at the country as a whole, locating the main cities, looking at its geography and trying to get to grips with its vastness.  Lots to discuss, compare and contrast to where we live.  There will be an ‘Australia’ day at the end of the term to complete the topic and allowing children to enjoy what they have learnt.

 

FUND RAISING

Lots of fundraising activities have been happening in school.  A bonfire night treats cake stall; Bags2School collection and of course the Christmas Fair.  We have also helped to raise funds for Children in Need with everyone arriving in school dressed in pyjamas!

 

VILLAGE VISITS

The school has been out and about in the village this term.

  • Class 3 have enjoyed a morning of boccia and curling with PrimeTime as well as a visit to the Village Hall for the History’s Society’s exhibition on the history of the village and surrounding areas.

  • KS2 children participated in a Remembrance Service at St Nicholas’s Church

  • Class 1 have been busy writing letters and will be walking to post them in the village post box.

 

YOUNG VOICES

Children in years 4/5/6 are busy practising their songs for Young Voices.  This will be our 3rd time participating in this national event and we will be travelling to Sheffield Arena to take part in the World’s biggest children’s choir.  Children (and staff) have thoroughly enjoyed the experience of being part of a professional musical event. We are also excited to have Sessay pupils join us and it will be their first visit to Young Voices.

 

 

Visits to our school are always welcome - please phone the school office - 01347 868371 - to make an appointment
