Our ECO committee have met this week and talked about improvements to our allotment. Since the strong winds finally destroyed our greenhouse, we are considering planting that does not require cover.
Potatoes and onions will be planted and other vegetables will follow so we have produce ready to sell at this years summer fayre. Plans are to plant up some pots of bedding plants in early summer ready to also sell at the fayre.
The committee will be bringing wellies and coats on Thursday 14th March for their first planting session.
Thank you to Mr. Graves and Mr. Carroll from our Premises team who are extremely helpful with our garden.
We hope you all enjoyed the half term break.
On Monday 3rd December, we held our annual Aspirations morning as part of Enterprise Week. We had more visitors than ever this year and as a result we were able to open up the talks to include not only Y5 and 6 but also Y3 and 4 so that the whole of KS2 could enjoy the day. Our guests spoke to the children about their jobs/careers. This included any qualifications they required to work in their chosen field, the skills and challenges they faced in their jobs and the most enjoyable aspects of their work. The talks all concluded with a question and answer session which threw up some really interesting facts and opinions.
This year’s visitors included a VIB police officer, bank manager, builder, farmer, electrician, police community support officer, firefighter, teacher, storekeeper, two coastguards and a local entrepreneur. Photos are available for viewing on the 'Pictures' pencil.
The children really benefitted from the experience and we would like to thank all our guests for their time and enthusiasm. We already have some parents offering to take part in next year’s Aspirations day and if you are interested please contact Mr Sutherland.
Later in the week we will be holding an Enterprise Fair when the children will make and sell their own products. Proceeds will go to Rock Challenge 2013.
The whole school will take part in a 'Dance - athon' to support this years entry into Rock Challenge. Thankyou to Miss Harrison for organising the event.
Details of our Christmas dates and plans can be found in Letters to Parents by clicking on the Noticeboard pencil. Thank you!
On Thursday 22nd November we will be holding a Frocks into Footballs day. Please remember to bring your unwanted textiles including clothes and shoes in the sack your child has brought home. Inspired by London 2012 and the school will benefit from receiving sports equipment.
On Tuesday the 20th November our children will have the opportunity to watch a Pantomime production of Pinocchio, presented by M & M Productions. We hope they all enjoy this as part of our build up to festive activities.
In aid of the Breast Cancer Campaign, children can come to school this Friday wearing some pink clothing. Donations should be brought to school and will be forwarded on to the charity. Thank you.
If you’re a motorist then you’ll know how difficult it can sometimes be to see pedestrians wearing dark clothes at night or when visibility is poor. Your child will have been learning the road safety message ‘Be Bright, Be Seen’ at school, and it’s important that you as a parent or carer help your child to be easily seen near traffic.
This week, children in the South building will be given a poster to colour in. Children in the North building will be designing an outfit suitable to wear at night or in dark conditions. Prizes will be awarded for the best entries. During the week, children will be encouraged to wear their brightest coats, scarves, hats and gloves to school.
For our African themed week, we are very excited that the 'Zulu Nation Group' are with us today to perform with African drums.
The cast of professional performers are all multi talented and originate from the city of Durban, in the kingdom of Kwa-Zulu Natal.
The Mighty Zulu Nation Theatre Company has tailored a powerful educational experience that, through its Unique Cultural application of performance and workshops, successfully creates opportunity for community cohesion, Cultural diversity Awareness, Racial equality and Citizenship. The main motivation of the Project is to provide a unique cultural experience that merits the development of a creative foundation, designed to simulate individual integrity.

Our thanks go to Withernsea Lions for their continued support for the education of the children in and around Withernsea.
On Friday they presented us with £200 towards next years Rock Challenge production and a further £800 for the purchase of reading books across the cluster of local primary schools.
