Football Report from Mrs Rowntree

The sporting fixtures are steadily coming back with some superb football being played on Tuesday night against Osbaldwick Primary. The weather was appalling and I have never seen our back field quite as wild as it was, but the boys played with true grit and resilience! Mr Scoreby were so proud of their teamwork and the skills on display were superb. Thank you to all the parents who supported their son in those dreadful conditions…. I went home for a well-deserved hot chocolate to warm up!

This was quickly followed by the Y6 girls team participating in a girl only competition at Vale of York School on Thursday. Mr Scoreby accompanied the team and said ‘they were an absolute pleasure to take out of school!’ They improved their football skills, worked as a team and enjoyed a fun morning of sport. It’s so nice to have some of the sporting competitions slowly creeping back in again. Many thanks to the parents for being their taxi service too!

Harvest Festival

Click to visit the Carecent website

We are looking forward to celebrating harvest on Monday 4th October at St Nicholas Church in Dunnington. It will be wonderful to be back in the building with the children, particularly for our younger pupils who will be visiting with us for the first time. We will have three services for each of our bubbles: Reception/Year 1/2, Year 3/4 and Year 5/6. At this stage, we are just welcoming children and staff into the services. Parents will be able to view pictures of their child’s class activities on the website afterwards.

Reverend Nick Bird has confirmed there will be no food collection at the services on Monday, but that we are very welcome to add to their money collection for Carecent. If you would like to make a donation, please feel free to send money in an envelope marked “Carecent” into school on Monday morning and we will take them to church with us.
