Key Events

Trips Out and Visitors In

The last half term of the summer has already been very busy with trips out and visitors in.  Class 3 had very informative day at the mosque learning about Islam; they took part in many activities including an imaginary visit  the Holy Ka'bah in Mecca.  They have also been on a day trip to Scarborough where they conquered their fears by scaling the heights on the Sky Trail; had a trip on the train with sea views and then an afternoon of lifesaving and surfing with the RNLI Lifeguards. An exciting day for all involved.

 

On Thursday 15th June the NSPCC came in to do an assembly with both key stages to talk about how to keep safe with the slogan 'Speak Out, Stay Safe'. They did a number of activities with Class 3 about how to keep safe in a number of situations. Very useful advice for all involved. 

 

There are yet more trips to come for all three classes.

RNLI Lifesavers

On Friday 3rd May, Helen and Josh, Lifeguards with the RNLI came to our school to tell us about water safety. The children tried on the equipment they used and everyone had fun learning about the meaning of different flags the RNLI use at the seaside. water safety covered all aspects of water, lakes, ponds, sink holes on moorland, ice, rivers and many more. The older children are going to be surfing with the RNLI later this term and also learning what it means to be a Lifeguard.

Red Nose Day, Sand Hutton's Got Talent

Coming to a stage near you soon, will be superb acts fresh from Sand Hutton CE Primary School's own Talent Show. The acts range from solo singing artists to gymnasts and to Magical Comedy. We never knew so many children had so many talents. We had our very own judges, the teachers! The Year 6 children did an amazing job of organising our Red Nose Events. Starting in the morning with a Talent Show and later a bun sale. A staggering £251.71 was raised! Well done and a huge thank you to everyone who joined in, contributed cakes and prizes to make our day a huge success... and so much fun.

Grandparent Afternoon

Yesterday, Thursday 16th March we invited grandparents to come and visit our school for the afternoon. They were given a guided tour of the school and grounds by their grandchildren and then took part in various activities in the classrooms.  Cups of tea, coffee and juice were supplied by the Y6 girls in Class 3 and biscuits and cake were eaten by everyone. It was a fun, relaxing occasion. The children were able to show all the things they had done this year and celebrate their hard work. It was a super occasion and one we hope will be repeated again in the not too distant future.

March Update

Everyone has had a busy but exciting start to the month of March.  All the classes have had a great time creating a play for our Easter service with Tony Bower from the Yoyo Trust and Class 3 have been scaling the heights at Red Goat Climbing Centre. More news coming soon.

Class 3 have been lucky enough to have had two visitors into class this month linked to their Mountain topic.  Mr Frank Milner came in to talk about his many mountain climbing adventures and mountain rescue events. He also brought many items of equipment for the children to look at and try on.

Captain Hodgson from the Army came in to tell us about his trek to the Himalayan Mountain range in March this year. He is going to come back after his trip and tell us all about his experiences.

During October Class 3 were lucky enough to have a number of visitors into school and also a visit out, related to their World War Two topic. Retired Major Mr Jon Jessop re-told the story of how he was evacuated to Australia with his mother and brother as the Japanese invaded Hong Kong, where his father was a member of the British Armed Forces. Then Mrs Jean Daish, a local author came into to school to read from one of her new children's books, 'Operation Pied Piper' and 'Operation Dynamo'. They are about a group of evacuees and their adventures during the time they spent with their host families.  This was followed by a fantastic day with the North Yorks. Moors Railway team being evacuated from Grosmont to Pickering as part of their WW2 celebration weekend. What superb learning opportunities!

'How?', 'Why?', so say the Quarks and so say the Shadows.  Read on to find out more.

On Thursday 7th July Class Three performed a play by Bridget Foreman at the York Theatre Royal directed by Mrs Fraser, called 'In the Shadow of the Quarks'. Could the two tribes come together to solve the problem of the dying earth?  You had to watch to find out. They spent a whole day at the theatre; had a two hour lighting and sound tech., performed to Bootham School and then performed to parents, friends and family in the evening.  Everybody had a fantastic time and learnt so much about performing to an audience. What an  amazing day!

North Yorkshire School Games

On Monday 20th June a team of 11 children from our school, ranging from Y1 to Y6, arrived at the University of York to take part in the North Yorkshire School Games.  They were representing York in the Small School Quad Kids Competition. The events involved a sprint, a distance run, throwing a howler and a standing long jump.  Despite a morning of heavy rain the children gave a 100% in all the events which resulted in Sand Hutton CE School becoming the Small Schools County Quad Kids Champions. Paralympic athlete Stephen Miller presented the children with their trophy and medals. The children all said what a great time they had had and would love to do it all again.  A super day.

Archbishop Sentamu

On Thursday 12 May Archbishop Sentamu paid a visit to our school as part of his Pilgrimage of Prayer, Witness and Blessing.  He met all of the classes and did a Q and A session in Class 3. The children thought he was 'funny and humorous'.  He then continued on with his walk. The children hoped he would be able to visit again in the future.

World Peace Centre Visit

On Tuesday 19 April, the children from Class 3 along with the junior class from our sister school, Warthill CE School, visited the World Peace Centre at Pocklington.  The children through story and drama found out about the life of Buddha and experienced meditation. The children said they found the meditating 'calming and relaxing' and ' free from the world'. We were very lucky to have beautiful weather in a lovely location and everyone enjoyed the visit.

Magistrates Visit Class 3

On Tuesday 23 February Mr Martyn Weller JP and Mr Paul Ironmonger JP magistrates from York and Selby Law Courts came to talk to the children about their role and how  the Youth Court works. The children took part in a play to emphasise this and they were able to act as magistrates and decide on a verdict.

The children thought it was a great opportunity to learn about how the legal system works in our country and how some actions can have serious consequences.

World Cancer Day

A group of children organised a fundraising event for World Cancer Day; today the 4 February. They sold wrist bands, buns and collected donations for dressing down. They raised a grand total of £193.74.
Thank you for all the donations of cakes and money that has resulted in a very successful event.

Stanley Gene

On Monday 25 January Stanley Gene (a retired Super League rugby player) came to Sand Hutton C E School to talk about his career and how if you have a dream it can be achieved with hard work and determination.  He told the children about his life as a child growing up in Papua New Guinea and the difference between school here and school there.  Stanley also found that his Christian faith helped him in making the right life choices. He currently runs his own charity to help aid and support schools in Papua New Guinea. He is hoping to return to Sand Hutton later this year to update us on his work.
