Following a visit to school by children’s environmental author Ellie Jackson, our Year 6 children decided to set an example to others and wanted to pick up plastic rubbish from a local beach. We wrote to GWR who helped us get there for free. When we got there, we borrowed litter picking sticks from the Nature Reserve then ventured onto the beach. We found all sorts of plastic litter that had either been left by people enjoying a day out or other rubbish that had been washed up on the beach by the tide. Fishing nets, floats, plastic bottle and clothing were all found and collected by us. We brought it all back to school to use in a sculpture next week…
Many thanks to everyone who attended and enjoyed our Summer Disco – a super time was had by all who came along. Particular thanks go to those parents and school staff members who gave up their Friday evening in support of the event.

Year 3 and 4 are hosting a fundraising event on Thursday 2nd May. Our children will be spending all afternoon participating in different sporting activities – non-stop! ASDA have offered to provide refreshments for the event. If you would like to sponsor us, please see an adult in year 3 and 4.

THE 2ND HAYTOR VIEW BAKE OFF
Thank-you so much to everyone, children, parents and organisers that made the end of our Spring Term such a sweet one by taking part in our second Bake Off. We were so impressed, and frankly overwhelmed, by the time and trouble that every entrant had put into their cakes. Fr. Nick had an almost impossible job judging the multitude of entries! A bumper cake sale followed, raising £36.82 for school funds – we will let you know how that is spent in the future. With a perpetual shield now being awarded to the winner it looks like this event will become a fixture on our annual calendar. Once again, many thanks!
All the pupils, staff and governors would like to wish you and your family a very happy Easter, with thanks for all of the support that you have given your children and the school this term.
CHILDREN RETURN TO SCHOOL ON TUESDAY 23rd APRIL.
