MENTAL HEALTH DAY Monday 10th October

On Monday, as part of our World Mental Health Day activities, children, staff and the Silver Ladies had a wonderful time making friendship bracelets, eating lunch and chatting together and learning new songs and singing together in the afternoon. It was a very wholesome experience for everybody. Watch out for more things that we are going to be doing with the Silver Ladies and others in the local community.

Thank you so much to Mrs Pyrah for organising their visit to the school!


Fantastic visit to Richmond School & Sixth Form science department

Year 5 and Mrs Martin had a fantastic visit this week to Richmond School & Sixth Form science department. They spent the morning in a secondary school science laboratory and were introduced to laboratory equipment.  Pupils conducted various experiments looking at chemical reactions, in particular looking at reversible and irreversible changes and the signs of a chemical reaction. Thank you to Richmond School for introducing our pupils to the amazing world of Chemistry - it has really sparked enthusiasm for the subject and raised awareness of STEM careers amongst our Year 5 pupils.

We have lots of exciting Science learning opportunities coming up, including a visit from a bee keeper and a mechanical engineer and many other inspiring activities to improve science capital for all pupils during British Science week which starts on Friday 11th March.


Rishi Sunak cuts the ribbon on new climbing frame

Rishi Sunak MP and Chancellor for the Exchequer, cuts the ribbon on the new climbing frame in Early Years. Mr Sunak performed the official opening of the new climbing frame installed in our Early Years outdoor area. Some of our children had the opportunity to perform for him and ask questions. The children thoroughly enjoyed the occasion and it was a superb chance to meet a member of parliament.  These are some of their comments: ‘…this experience was phenomenal. Then we got to sing our school song and he was cheering at the end!’ Finlay  ‘I had no idea he would be so friendly.’ Felicity  ‘He said, before he left, those words ‘aspire, believe, achieve’ are so catchy!’ Evelyn  ‘Thank you Mr Sunak for coming to Croft School.’ Kitty  ‘I realised that he is a normal person with a warm smile and a big heart.’ Amelie 

Boys Area Football Final

Congratulations to our upper KS2 boys who managed to get themselves into the area football finals in York. The boys did amazingly well but unfortunately, they did not manage to get themselves out of the group stages after competing in some very close games. The boys eventually finished 6th out of 450 schools. What a fantastic achievement! Thank you to Mr Robinson for all of the work that he has done with the boys to prepare them for yesterday’s tournament and thank you to Mr Percovich who came into school this week to help too.
