Sherburn Hungate Weekly News - Spring Term - Issue 11
A word from Mr Broom
After Sam's success in the Cross Country (details below), I decided to try my hand at cross country running too. I'm delighted to say that I beat her, gaining the right to claim in future years that I've beaten an olympic champion! She did fall over at the beginning of the race, and I did get a good 20 metre start on her but we'll not mention that. As I write this, I think I've also just about recovered!
Our Year 4 children are incredibly excited about their residential trip to Kingswood next week, and I'm sure they will have a super time.
On Thursday, we have a visiting headteacher from the Kirklees Authority, visiting school. Mrs Sweryt will spend the day looking at learning, books and talking to children about our school. The purpose is to give us a quick performance check, recognising our strengths and our areas to work on. I'm really looking forward to it and I know she'll be impressed.
The weather's beautiful so have a lovely weekend.
Sherburn Hungate's First Cross Country Champion of England
Well on Tuesday, they attended the finals and did incredibly well against a very strong field.
I am delighted to say that one of our athletes, Samantha Taylor, managed to pick up a gold medal in her event; an amazing achievement and an inspiration to us all. Congratulations to Sam. Our first ever English Schools Cross Country Champion!
Thank you also to the staff and parents who came along to support the children on the day. A very proud moment for Sherburn Hungate Primary School.
Story Night Success
Thank you to our Friends Association also, for your continued support with this event.
Piano Day Super Star
One young man who is certainly making strides in the piano world is Matthew Moody. His mum and dad sent this clip in and it's amazing to see him doing so well in his first steps into music. Keep up the hard work Matthew.

It's important that children attend school regularly and at Sherburn Hungate we recognise that excellent attendance leads to excellent achievement. Fact!
Our attendance for this week is 95.9%, which is just short of our 96% target. Let's hope that next week we'll meet it together.
We know that there's lots of bugs around because we've had staff illness too. However, please help us by sending your children to school when they only have sniffles. If they're not well enough to be here, we will send them home.
Our top attending class this week is Year 1 with 98.8%
