Congratulations to the children who performed for our Community Music Afternoon. We hope to spread the word and have a larger audience next year! Also, well done to Mr Bousfield’s guitar students who performed so well for their families on Wednesday. We have had a fantastic Tour de France week this week, where the children have cycled or scooted in the playground, painted t-shirts, made beautiful weaving displays in bicycle wheels and tried French snacks. Thank you to Mrs Isted who took a group of Year 1 children to the Multi Sport Event on Wednesday. Thank you to Mrs Hall and Mrs West who took some of the Playground Pal children to the playgroup to teach the children some playground games.

Congratulations to everyone who performed in our music afternoon. The children and staff have worked very hard and the children have made excellent progress with their singing, violin and recorder playing. This week the Year 1 had an enjoyable visit to the Farmer’s Cart where they saw a number of animals and brought back some fruit and vegetables to try. The Gardening Club met on Thursday and have made special pots to grow salad leaves in at home.

Congratulations to the choir who sang so well at the Barbican last Saturday. Lots of people said how well they sang and they didn’t seem nervous at all. Thanks again to Mrs Fuller and Mrs Hayden for their support. On Thursday the EYFS team welcomed the new children who will start in September with a Teddy Bear’s Picnic. This was the first time that we have run this event and it went really well and gave the new children a positive taste of school life.

The FOBIS have now raised £3,600.00 for the school. The money will be used to buy i-pads which will be used in classrooms. We just need to check that our wireless system in school is strong enough to support the new technology and will hopefully be able to buy the i-pads in September. THANK YOU to all the members of FOBIS and to everyone who has supported their events over the last year. We are very excited at the prospect of updating our resources to support the Computing part of the new national curriculum.

Both Year 2 classes have now visited Tesco. They were able to look around the store and find out how the food gets to the shelves. The children were also able to make their own bread and have lunch at the store. The children had a fantastic time and have not stopped talking about it since! On Wednesday we had our summer disco which the children thoroughly enjoyed. Many thanks to FOBIS for organising this event. We said a sad goodbye to Mrs Rathbone today who after working at our school for a number of years is moving on to work in a doctor’s surgery. We thank her for all that she has done for the school and wish her well in her new role.
It has been lovely seeing the children using the new EYFS outdoor area. Their confidence is growing and we have seen some brilliant child initiated play emerging such as making a dinosaur den! On Wednesday morning we took part in the Brake Giant March for Road Safety with the Junior School. It was a lovely morning and the children enjoyed walking around the village. We have now received our new logo which we will be able to use on our stationary and it will also appear on new uniform items. We hope that you like it. Many thanks to David Emery who has produced the logo for us and been very patient with our lengthy decision making process!
Please see the flyer under News and Events about this event.
The cost for this half term (Tuesday 3rd June - Friday 18th July) will be £76.50. Please see Mrs Rathbone or Mrs Fuller in the office to check whether your child has any debit/credit in their account. We would be grateful if money for lunches could be paid on a Monday. Cheques should be made payable to Bishopthorpe Infant School. Thank you.
