Effort Shield
This was awarded to Mary-Kate in Elm Class, well done Mary-Kate!

Well done to all the children who took part in the Thirsk cluster football competition last week. The team achieved well against tough competition. The team drew three matches and won two.

Cross Country
Congratulations to Colton, Isaac and Harry who took part in the cross country competition at Knayton. The top eight children will take part in the Area finals in March 2017.  I am delighted to let you know this will include the three boys as Colton came 5th, Isaac 6th and Harry 7th! Fantastic results!

Thank you to you all for supporting the purchase of poppies and other items on sale to support the Poppy Appeal. The whole school attended the Memorial Cross on Friday afternoon to pay our respects. School also purchased a wreath which two pupils laid at the cross.

Fair Trade Committee
A special well done to our Fair Trade Committee who wrote and posted festive messages ahead of Charity Christmas Card Week. They put pen to paper to send early Christmas wishes to their counterparts in developing countries.

Thank you to the PTA for organising Film Night for all the children last Friday. Their next event will be a mini Christmas Fayre to be held in school at the end of the school day on Friday 9th December.

Children in Need
Next Friday, 18th November is Children in Need day. We will be wearing our pyjamas to raise funds for this very worthwhile cause and politely ask if each child donates £1 for the charity, thank you.

School has a vacancy for a Midday Supervisory Assistant Monday to Friday, 11.45am to 1.00pm each day.  If you would be interested in applying for the post please call in at the school office to collect an application form.  Many thanks.
