The Hungate Echo
Sherburn Hungate Weekly News - Issue 14
A word from Mr Broom
On Tuesday, we had a very special visitor in school. Santa arrived to deliver presents to all classes! He was a little later than expected due to the very strong winds!
On Wednesday, the choir visited Hilltop Nursing Home to sing a selection of wonderful Christmas Carols. They had a whale of a time. The children in Year 1 and 2 also visited the pantomime and it was lovely to hear reports of the children's fantastic behaviour, with members of the public making many positive comments.
Year 3 and 4 held their termly open classrooms on Thursday, as well as performing Hosanna Rock to a packed audience. I'd like to thank Mr Wilkinson for working in our Year 3 class this week in Mrs Butterfield's absence.
Finally, we had an amazing celebration assembly where Year 5 got to show off their wonderful Sea Wigs.
Enjoy the shopping this weekend if you're out and about. Only 12 days to go!
Mad Science a Hit!
We can confirm that we’ve had a great response to the Mad Science After School Programme and it will be going ahead as scheduled on Mondays after school for 1 hour.

Instances of Poor Parent Behaviour
Please remain vigilant against any form of inappropriate behaviour and report it to the class teacher or myself immediately.
It is worth pointing out that we have had next to no issues with children's behaviour in school. Children fall out and make up as part of their social learning. It was interesting to note that the children involved in the issues at the beginning of the week, shared a dining table and were getting along just fine by lunchtime of the same day. This is because we invest a great deal of time in supporting our children to develop positive relationships and conflict management.
