The Hungate Echo
Sherburn Hungate Weekly News - Summer Term 1 - Issue 6
A word from Mr Broom.
Starting in Early Years, we had a visit from a dental practitioner as part of their topic on 'People Who Help Us'. Our fantastic cricketers in Year 5 came 4th in the all schools kwik cricket tournament yesterday. Finally, our Year 6 children has a special treat when they visited the Apple store in Leeds for a Genius Bar session on robotics with the Apple Education Experts. They also visited Giraffe for lunch and mocktails!
So next week is the half term holidays and after today, the weather looks great. Make sure you get out and enjoy the break with your family. Thank you for your continued support this half term.
Finally, this will be the last Hungate Echo as Sherburn Hungate Community Primary School. After the break, we will have joined the STAR Multi-Academy Trust and be known as Sherburn Hungate Primary School.

We have many other children approaching 5 gold stars; so much so that i've run out of stars! Not to worry, more are ordered for the first week back.

School Uniform & Snack Reminder
We like to encourage our children to have a healthy break time snack and we provide this through school. However, it seems that some children are bringing snacks into school containing sweets/chocolate. These are not permitted.
Year 6 at the Apple Genius Bar
Congratulations to our Year 4 children who are our attendance champions in school this week with 97.2%!
Our average attendance this week is 93.2%.
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.
