The years six children took part in the Bikeability training. This consisted of two days of on the road cycling alongside theory work culminating in an assessment and finally the award of their well-earned certificates.

As well as attending tennis and cricket tournaments the football team also reached the finals of the Straws Cup.

Class 4 have been working hard in the wild garden, tidying up, weeding and clearing the steps as well as rebuilding part of the wall and restoring the area around the memorial to the children of Dunblane.

Christian Aid fortnight was supported by holding a Wonderful Worm Day.

The children found out lots of interesting facts about the value of worms and compost particularly to the farmers in Bangladesh.

Everybody dressed up and enjoyed ‘Wormletics’, art activities, and a very tasty worm lunch especially prepared by Heidi the cook and helped by the children in Seashells breakfast club.

A total of £61 was raised, a great achievement.

Class one and nursery have been finding out all about dinosaurs. Two would-be palaeontologists from class three gave a very informative talk, sharing their knowledge.

The children also enjoyed an exciting trip to Pannett Park Museum in Whitby to see the fossils. They also managed to squeeze in some time in the playpark.

Visitors into school have included the National Parks, Balfour Beatty, Whitby Fire Service plus their engine.

The School Council was also invited to attend the Whitby Food Bank anniversary presentation where youngsters met The Mayor, councillors and committee members.

The whole school have also been visiting Ed Elliott the sculptor, eagerly following the progress of the wooden angel sculpture which will be unveiled on Thursday with a special blessing by the Bishop of Whitby.
