Pre-Prep Children enjoy a visit from 110D Regiment

Pre-Prep Children enjoy a visit from 110D Regiment

Dear Parents,

The end of term is almost here and the past week has been packed with plenty of excitement.  Last Thursday our PP3  children (with the help of some PP2 children) played brilliantly against Gateways School in football and hockey.  Some great  skills and sportsmanship were on display.

The Reception Class had a very exciting day out to the National Railway Museum.  Not only did they see lots of engines when they were there but they travelled to York by train which was a new experience for some.

Yesterday all of the Pre-Prep children were treated to a visit from 11 EOD Regiment, which is based at Catterick Garrison.  The children were shown equipment used by the bomb disposal experts and also given the chance to operate the robot arm!

In amongst all these activities there has been preparation for Easter.  All the children have been practising very hard for the Spring Concert and we invite you all to watch the concert tomorrow at 11.00am in the Reynolds Hall.  Following this is our annual Easter Egg Hunt. Please collect your children from the Pre-Prep and assist them to find the correct number of Easter Eggs.

We wish you all a Happy Easter and an enjoyable holiday and look forward to seeing you all back in school on Thursday 21st April.

Easter Gardens

In their R.E. Lessons with Mrs Rawson the children have been exploring the Easter Story and creating Easter Gardens to help them remember the details.
