All the children were treated to a hands-on opportunity to experience practical science this week during a visit from real life scientist Stuart Kitney from the University of Hull. They took it in turns to work through a series of short experiments, led and prepared by Stuart. We hope the children found it interesting and […]
It is with great pride that we can report that both our Y3/4 and Y5/6 athletics teams were victorious this afternoon, becoming East Riding Champions in both age ranges.

Following on from last week’s ‘boot camp’ activities, ERYC sports leaders have again been in school today, this time facilitatiating a range of disability games. The children have had to use a wide range of skills and teamwork to successfully complete their events, and have clearly enjoyed the challenge.
We were lucky enough to get outside in the fresh snow on Monday, and as ever our children wasted no time in getting down to some snow business and creating all kinds of interesting sculptures. And lots of very big snow balls!
