Preparations for Bonfire night and a German visitor!

Preparations for Bonfire night and a German visitor!

From the Head’s Office

I hope you all had an enjoyable, if blustery half term holiday. We have launched straight back into the second half of the term with great gusto and as I write, PP1 are at Kiplin Hall learning about the history of toys.

With a busy week ahead, we look forward to welcoming Mrs Cameron, Headteacher of Queen Mary’s School when she visits the Prep and Pre-Prep on Friday.

We hope you will be able to join us on Saturday when we will be holding our annual Bonfire Tea which precedes the Aysgarth Bonfire and Fireworks display. Food and drink will be served from 5pm and tickets are not required this year. Please see the email from Mr Morse for full details.

We have heard news of a German visitor who will be arriving this week to work with our reception class...I have been told he likes porridge! No doubt we will find out more as the week progresses, do watch our facebook page for updates!

With best wishes, Susie Drake, Head of Pre-Prep

Firework Code - Please be safe this weekend:

1. NEVER play with fireworks. They are explosives and can hurt.
2. ONLY adults should light or hold fireworks
3. When watching fireworks, stand well back
4. NEVER go near a firework that has been lit. Even if it hasn't gone off, it can still explode
5. KEEP pets indoors so they don't get frightened
6. If you are given a sparkler: ALWAYS wear gloves. Hold at arm's length. When it goes out DON'T TOUCH, it could still burn
