|A huge thank you to all parents and carers for their support during the wide range of festive activities and to the staff team for all their additional efforts over this time. Congratulations to all those pupils who recently received certificates to mark their progress with raising their reading age this term and also to those who received certificates for the length of time which they spent reading daily. A big thank you and well done to Mrs. Richardson and Mrs. Eccleston, supported by Mrs. Clay and Mrs. Whitehouse for their work producing eighty delicious Christmas meals, which included: turkey, mashed potato, sprouts, carrots, peas, sausage, stuffing, gravy, as well as festive cakes or pudding, or an alternative of vegetable tarts. The occasion was much enjoyed by everyone. Congratulations also  to everyone involved in the Christmas presentation. What a fantastic performance! The huge audience thoroughly enjoyed the excellent entertainment provided by all the pupils – their re-telling of the nativity story, with additional parts written by Class 3 pupils. They all performed well and they sang beautifully. Thank you to all who attended the performance; your support was much appreciated by us all. We are very grateful to Mrs. Catie Jones, one of our community governors, for accompanying the singing and Mr. Ray Jones for all his help with setting up the church for our rehearsals and during the performance. The collection raised £244 for the pupils’ chosen charities of Guide dogs for the blind and the Skipton food bank. Well done everyone!  We are very grateful to Michael Preston for running the  end of term Christmas disco and to all the parents who organised the evening’s event, including the visit from Santa!
