Today we celebrated Candlemas by having our annual Christingle service. We learned about the presentation of Jesus in the temple and the symbolism of the Christingle. Once again members of our Worship Committee took charge of our service. Well done Anna, Amber & Isabel.


John 8:12 When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.”

It has been quite a while since we had a school disco but with school staff and FORS members to provide the music, lighting and food, we had a great night.

Tonight we were very privileged to be asked to sing at the Whitby Town carol service at St. Mary's church.  This was an opportunity for our children to be part of a something much bigger, no matter what our faith and beliefs Christmas is a time we can all celebrate together. It truly was an evening of the church communities working together. Our children were amazing and did us so proud and were commended by others attending for their singing efforts. Thank you to our fantastic parents for turning out at night and to our children for giving up their lunch times to practise. We had a great night and it was lovely to see so many pupils there, I'm sure however there will be some sleepy children tomorrow. Take a look at our photos below.


1 Corinthians 14:12 “So it is with you. Since you are eager to have spiritual gifts, try to excel in gifts that build up the church.”

Carol Singing in the local community


What a wonderful time a small group of KS2 children have had at Oaklands Care Home this morning. I was so very proud of the children. They took their time to talk to all of the residents and sang a selection of traditional Christmas carols that were very well received. The children enjoyed a very delicious cupcake and drink and were given bags of sweets to take home. Thank you Oaklands for inviting us we had a great time.


This afternoon the Explorers have been carol singing at Whitby Court Care Home. Another very proud moment listening to our Explorers singing and talking to the residents at Whitby Court. It was lovely to see so many happy faces and the residents and staff joining in with our carols.  A very big thank you to all the staff and residents the children have had a truly, wonderful time carol singing.


A VERY BIG THANK YOU to Keith at ESK VALLEY COACHES for providing our transport today free of charge. We would not have been able to do this without your help Keith.

Today was our Christmas Fayre. What a fantastic turn out, we even had a special visit from Father Christmas. In total we raised £700 which will be spent on providing equipment & resources to enhance the education of our pupils. Watch out next week for some exciting news!


Luke 6:3Give, and you will receive. You will be given much. Pressed down, shaken together, and running over, it will spill into your lap. The way you give to others is the way God will give to you.”

Today we had a non-uniform today, with a theme of spots.  We also baked and sold buns at the end of the school day. This was to help the charity Children in Need. There were prizes for putting the best effort into making a costume and adopting a positive working attitude within the classroom to our related activities. Well done to everyone for taking part and especially to our winners. We raised a fantastic total of £112.10, beating our total from last year.

Throughout the week older children within the school have been selling various poppy related items and Mr Austin talked about Remembrance Day in his assembly this week. Today we observed the two minutes silence and thought about those people who had been killed or injured in the wars.


John 15:13 

Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down his life for his friends.




Monday 17th October 2016.

Today we celebrated our Harvest Festival at St. Bartholomew's Church. All of our classes took part and we had a mixture of singing and poems, with an added dash of choreography by Martha, Molly & Eva. All money and food donated will go to the Food Bank in Whitby and allow us as a school to share our good fortune amongst others.


Hebrews 13:5-16 Therefore, let us offer through Jesus a continual sacrifice of praise to God, proclaiming our allegiance to his name. And don't forget to do good and to share with those in need. These are the sacrifices that please God.
