We’ve had a brilliant week to end the half-term! This week, the eggs hatched in the junior classroom! As part of our current science topic, Mrs Mather and the junior children have taken care of some pheasant and partridge eggs, and were delighted to see they had hatched on Monday morning. This week all children in school have enjoyed watching them eat, play and grow. Some children also braved a quick hold. Thank you to Sophia and her family for the eggs and loan of all the required equipment.
On Wednesday, our junior children went to St Mary’s Church in Kirkby Lonsdale to explore the labyrinth and have a go at making their own hand labyrinth.
Thank you to the parents who came in to school on Wednesday evening as Mr Stafford-Roberts held a meeting regarding the Malham residential. Kit lists and itinerary are coming home with children today if you were unable to attend the meeting. Final balances for Malham need to be paid by the end of this month. Reminders for outstanding SchoolMoney accounts have been sent earlier today.
Children were all very excited to meet Bishop Phillip this morning, who delivered a wonderful worship.
