May Half term

Happy half term!  We hope you're all enjoying the sunshine and have lots planned for the short break.  

On the final Friday of this half term, the children from Foston and Terrington went to Summit Selby, and indoor play and adventure centre.  It was an amazing day of climbing ropes, walls and playing in the soft play area. 

The children worked so well together to support each other when they were nervous about climbing the really tall walls and high ropes!

What's more Minster FM visited us halfway through and interviewed Mrs Allon and some of the children! They were accompanied by their mascot bear, which created a lot of excitement on an already exciting day!

As always, so many exciting updates to tell you about! Please see our latest newsletter for important dates and notices.

Duncombe Park Trip

The infants had a wonderful time at Duncombe Park as part of their countryside day. The children enjoyed a very busy day which involved six activities from learning about and meeting a very friendly gun dog, to planting their own 'love in a mist' plant. We also met some gamekeepers and explored different types of pond life, then finished off the day with an amazing flying demonstration from their Birds of Prey Centre. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Tree Planting

On Saturday 6th May, a willing army of parents, friends and helpers descended on the school meadow to help plant over 20 young apple trees. This forms the first part of our plans to develop the meadow, which includes a peace garden and outdoor learning area.

We are extremely grateful to all the people who helped make the day a success and who contributed their time to make it happen.

As it’s been so dry recently, the children have been busy watering our thirsty new saplings!

Year 6 SATS

A huge well done to our Year 6’s this year who have worked so hard before and during their SATS. We think they deserve a bit of a rest now, before starting more exciting learning!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Easter Service

The children delivered a superb Easter Service to parents and friends back in April. We were so impressed by their artwork, which was displayed in the church. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Art Day

In March KS2 travelled to Foston where we had a full art day with Liz Collier. The theme was ‘Space’ and all the children produced some fantastic pieces. We are going to showcase these in a ‘Children’s art gallery’ in the Village Hall on Friday 9th June from 3:15 pm, where refreshments will be served. We hope to see you there!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Red Nose Day 2017

We all had great fun for RND this year, raising over £200. For school our size, this is a fantastic achievement so thank you to all who supported this excellent cause.

Debating Competition

We'd like to say a big WELL DONE to this year's debating team. They fought it out to debate the question 'Is homework a waste of time?' at the Ryedale Council Chambers this morning.  The quality of the teams and questioning was exceptionally high this year and Terrington came 2nd overall! This is a fantastic achievement for the team who have worked so hard.

 

 

 

 

 

January 2017

Welcome back and a happy 2017 to you all.

Last year culminated in a fantastic den building morning with children from both schools on the meadow at Terrington. The rain held off although it didn’t stop us getting muddy! It was very fun morning, helped by hot Ribena and hot chocolate during morning break!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

December also saw the arrival of Santa, who very kindly gave the children some gifts. We played party games in the village hall and had lots of party food back at school.

 

 

 

 

 

The Christmas service in Terrington All Saints church was also a success. A particular special mention goes to those who read in front of the congregation. The service concluded with a Christingle service, bringing a tear to the eyes of many parents!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In KS2 this term we will be studying The Romans. The children will be making Roman Mosaics and solving word problems with Roman numerals.

December 2016

This year the infants performed Prickly Hay Nativity for parents, grandparents, friends and the Junior children.  It was a brilliant performance, and all the hard work of the staff and children was evident!  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

July 2016

On Thursday 14th July, the Infants from Terrington and Foston Primary Schools went to Howsham Mill for a day of Renewable Energy and Forest Schools.

We learnt about how the Mill creates its own electricity and what other sources of renewable energy there are. We also had a go at making Wacky Water Wagons! After a picnic lunch, we made dens in the forest! We did some great teamwork. The weather stayed nice, which made the day really enjoyable.

June 2016

During our Science lessons this half term, we have been planning and carrying out experiments. We have been choosing a question, deciding how to answer it and making predictions about what might happen. We then carry out the experiments! This experiment was called 'The Balloon Rocket Experiment.' In one experiment we wanted to see which balloon traveled the furthest; the round balloon or the long balloon. We also investigated if a slope for the balloon to travel up or down made a difference!
