Sherburn Hungate Weekly News - Spring Term 2 - Issue 1
A word from Mr Broom.
In the next couple of weeks I'm hoping to announce a new teacher who will be joining us for the Summer Term in Year 3. Final negotiations are underway and I'll let you know as soon as possible so we can make introductions.
You may recall that our Year 5/6 classes created an exhibition/auction of their own artwork at the Eversley Park Centre before Christmas. I'm pleased to say that, with your donations, we managed to raise £130 for Friends of the Earth and £130 for Safe and Sounds Homes (a charity that works to prevent homelessness in 16-25 year olds in York, North Yorkshire, East Yorkshire and Hull). Thank you for your donations. This was an excellent example of how learning became real for our children and it was great to see them so engaged.

Our Star Achievers this Week
Online E-Safety Parents' Course
Friday 2nd March at 2pm
O2 and the NSPCC have joined forces on a mission to help all children and their families in the UK stay safe online. Our hour-long workshop will help parents and carers understand their child’s online world, build their confidence and offer useful tools, support and guidance to have those important conversations that can help keep children safe online.
Congratulations to our Reception children who are our attendance champions in school this week with 99.6%.
As you can see below, our attendance in most classes is above the national average which is fantastic. Thank you for your support on this.
We have a small number of children whose attendance is well below the national expectations. These children are known as persistently absent when their attendance falls below 90%. I will be making telephone calls to parents of these children.
Thank you for your continued support with our attendance drive. It is really appreciated.
