We settle into our new classes and get used to our new teachers and classmates. We go through the class rules and think about our ambitions for the year.
Sports fixtures usually begin with a cross country event and Mr Deakin and Mr Broxup running the boys’ and girls’ football teams.
Some of the other sporting events we compete in early in the year are: hockey, rugby, Quadkids and Netball but these can change.
BONFIRE NIGHT is upon us. We usually do some artwork based on Bonfire night and discover the history behind it. We also remind pupils how to be safe around fireworks and how to recognise dangers and taking the correct actions.
We start getting ready for Christmas. We are usually busy rehearsing school plays in EYFS and Key Stage 1. Key stage 1 and 2 children are preparing decorations for our ‘lighting of the tree’ ceremony.
We’re all really happy to come back after 2 weeks off playing with toys and games!
A sad yet joyous occasion is the Year 6 leaver’s service at St. Helen’s church. We say goodby to the year 6’s and celebrate their achievements over the years at Escrick.
Mr Deakin is usually busy running our sports day and talking loudly on the microphone.
Unfortunately we don’t come to school in August. We recharge our batteries ready for September because it’s important to relax. The teachers are working on our new classrooms and planning lessons for September, labelling books as well as other little jobs around school.
