Acorn Class (Key Stage 1) - Homepage

We are constantly seeking to develop the early years ‘choosing’ provision. We are striving to provide enough challenges for the children and present them with meaningful opportunities for them to practice their reading, writing and number skills.

Wednesday 18th October - NSPCC 

We are working with the NSPCC in the Autumn Term as part of our ongoing work to keep children safe.  Details of assemblies and workshops, including one for parents 4pm-5pm at Hovingham on 18th October, will follow in due course.  Part of the learning includes keeping safe online.  For advice and support on setting up parental controls, adjusting privacy settings, understanding social networks and more, visit nspcc.org.uk/onlinesafety or call 0808 800 5002. 

Monday 25th September - Pentathlon GB

On Monday 25th September, we are lucky enough to have 2 coaches from Pentathlon GB coming into school to work with the children.  The Modern Pentathlon is an Olympic event and comprises 5 events – pistol shooting, fencing, swimming, horse riding and running.  Oak Class will get to try laser shooting and fencing and Acorn Class just fencing (due to the weight of the laser pistol). The activities will all take part in the village hall using age appropriate safe/soft equipment.  The children will all get to have a go with the equipment and take part in some mini events.  We hope this will be a great opportunity for them to try something completely new and perhaps fire some ambition!

Friday 22nd September - Ryedale Book Festival – Oskar's Amazing Adventure

Reception, Year 1 & Year 2 will be going to see Theatre Fideri Fidera and their play, Oskar’s Amazing Adventure at the Milton Rooms in Malton. 

"Fun-loving Oskar has to run down a mountain to find a friendly animal to play with. But where are the animals? And why does Oskar have to wait till spring to play his favourite game again?"

This heart-warming, humorous play uses a rich mix of storytelling, physical theatre, puppetry music, song and even close up magic to tell the tale of a puppy’s search for friendship in the wilderness of the Alps.

Wednesday 13th September - Roald Dahl Day

The children all looked fantastic in their outfits and enjoyed a fun filled day.  Thank you for your continued support.

 

PE

Acorn and Howard Class PE lessons will continue to be supported by Mr Mulholland in both schools.  We will continue to enter the Ryedale Federation Sports fixtures with the expectation that each Y1-Y6 pupil will take part in a tournament each term. 

 

Music 

From September, Acorn and Howard Class pupils’ music will be taught by our existing staff who will continue to follow the North Yorkshire Music Scheme of Work.

 

Weekly French

Mrs Cordingley, a native French speaker, will continue to teach Year 1 to Year 6 pupils French.  This will, from September, take place each Friday in both schools.

 

In the Autumn and Spring Terms, pupils from the two schools will continue to meet up for a variety of joint events rather than coming together each Friday.
