Bake off - take off
When Miss Stephenson 'launched' her space project she wasn't expecting the work to 'take off' as it did, with such amazing project work from home. The children have put so much effort into their solar systems, they are out of this world! There was even a solar system cake.
Finally, a cake you can eat which still leaves space in your tummy!
can you sew? We need you!
World Cup Fever
Due to the busy nature of the summer term it has not been possible to arrange for a single summer exhibition for the whole school. As a result, classes have organised their own exhibition of work on differing dates and times. The children would like to share with you the end products of their real projects.
Please see below for dates and venues:
Year One: Wednesday 18th July - 9am - Chapel
Year Two: Thursday 12th July - 10am-2pm - Ripon Market
Year Three: Thursday 12th July - 10am-2pm - Ripon Market
Year Four: Thursday 12th July - 2.15pm- Chapel
Year Five: Thursday 12th July - 2.30pm- Classroom
Year Six: Thursday 12th July - 9am- School Hall
All the classes have been very busy preparing for their final products. It's been exciting to have a wildlife photographer in school or to send off some amazing fabric designs, for example. Our Year 3 class have been hard at work ensuring the lettuce for their healthy sandwiches is at its best for Thursday!
Staffing Arrangements: September 2018
In case you missed last week's Update, here are the arrangements again:
Mr Dudman will be replaced by Mr Holmes as headteacher of the school.
Class teacher organisation from Reception to Year Three will remain unchanged next year. Mrs McCormick will be the non-teaching deputy, and we welcome new teachers as follows:
Year Four: Mrs McIlmurray, who joins us from Flanshawe School in Wakefield,
Year Five: Miss Heslop, coming from Herringthorpe Infant school in Rotherham,
Year Six: Mrs Moore, who has 14 years of teaching experience in the North East and overseas.
Forest School 'Must Haves'
pipes and guttering
logs/rounds for seating
Thanks in anticipation!
Oscar's Summer Fun Holiday Club
Book Early to Avoid Disappointment!
Now we have our summer programme in place, we are getting very excited about Oscar's holiday club, running from 23rd July to 3rd August. As requested on our survey feedback, we have built in time for the children to enjoy playing games with their friends, both inside and out and definitely involving water if the weather is still hot! In the first week, Mr Biggs will be here on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday and as we know how much the children love his PE lessons, we're sure it will be loads of fun.
In the second week, Amelia of Ripon Upstage Academy will be joining us with her team from Monday through to Wednesday. Her Academy are performing at the Great Yorkshire Show next week, so we are thrilled to be able to offer this outstanding opportunity exclusively to the children of our school.
An email went out on Thursday with full details of how to book Oscar's in the summer holidays. Booking online is essential, so do it now to avoid disappointment - places are limited!

MESSAGE FROM THE FRIENDS
See you soon!
We hope you're all looking forward to some disco dancing! Nursery up to Year 2 will be dancing the early evening away (5.30-6.30pm) - all children must be accompanied by an adult who stays with them please. Then our older children have their disco from 6.45-7.45pm.
Thank you (again!): Many thanks for all prizes offered for our raffle at the school production and for the Bag2School collection which was picked up on Thursday.
End of Year Social: Details to be confirmed, but we'd like to invite all parents to join us for an end of year social gathering (possibly in a pub beer garden!).
