To support his mum James cycled the Solar system in York which is spread out accross 13.4 miles on the Old East Coast Main-Line railway. He discovered the annual charity bike ride run by the local Brain Tumour Charity, BTRS ( Brain Tumour Research and Support Accross Yorkshire). James was too young to participate in the BTRS charity ride so he came up with cycling the solar system instead. We are very proud of him as I am sure his Mum and all his family are. Well Done James.
On Friday 21st April Mrs Snowden, Mrs Wood, Miss Nelson, Miss Sladdin, Miss Gimblet, Mrs Davidosn, and Mrs Fowler did the 3 Peaks Walk for Brain Tumour Research and Sickle Cell. It is 24 miles and the challenge is to do it within 12 hours. We would like to congratulate them all for acheiving the challenge and thank them for raising a massive £850 so far. The Just Giving page is still open and the balance is still going up.

Year 5 Trip
Yesterday Year 5 went on a trip to Fairburn Ings, Wakefield. This was to kickstart our new Science topic of ‘Living Things and their Habitats’. They were able to discover lots of new creatures and habitats in the meadows and woodlands, before going for a spot of pond dipping to find wildlife in the water. The children were wonderfully behaved and enjoyed the day thouroughly. Miss Bajwa.
