Please remember to send you child with a packed lunch on Thursday 22nd November. We will be leaving school at 9am and will be returning home at the normal time. Although we will be inside Skipton Castle, please ensure you send your child with a hat and gloves if possible to ensure that they stay warm, and ensure all items are named. It promises to be an enjoyable trip, so look out for our photos in the gallery section when we return. 

Trip to Skipton Castle

We will be taking the children on a trip to Skipton Castle, please complete the letter and return it to school either by the office or in your child's bag. The date of the trip is Thursday 22nd November 2018.  Please see below the details of the letter. If you are able to volunteer we will be grateful and if you let us know that would be great. It is a superb trip linking to our next topic and we think the children will learn all about Skipton Castle and the history surrounding it.

New PE kit is required in September - plain white t-shirt, black or navy tracksuit, black or navy shorts for the warmer weather and any comfortable trainers.

Please bring a water bottle. Earrings to be taken out or covered up with plasters/tape.


Library Books

Every Wednesday afternoon year 1 will visit the school library where they can choose a reading book to take home. This book must be returned the following week to then choose a new one. If the book is not returned then they will not be able to take one out until the previous book is returned. 



Homework will be given out on a Wednesday and then it will be due in the following Monday. Spellings will also be given out on a Wednesday. With the spelling sheet, children can practice reading the word, saying it out loud and then writing it down.
