Seth's first team talk!

Seth, Aidan and Alfie all played their first league rugby game on Sunday 8th March. They all played fantastically well and won 9-8 against Eastmore Dragons of Wakefield. Seth chose to base his class challenge on this game.
He challenged himself to write a few words to his team on the laptop.
He then chose to video his speech for the challenge and to post it on the All Blacks Rugby team webpage so the whole team could see how proud he was to be Captain. Well done Seth!

News Report from York Press 16th December 2014


CHILDREN at New Earswick Primary School welcomed a real life pirate into their school this week.

The Year 3 class have spent the last term learning about pirates, and to mark the end of the theme class teacher Kirsty Clayton managed to track down a genuine pirate to talk to the pupils about his life on the high seas.

On Tuesday, pirate captain Hughes and his parrot Ainsley dropped into the school for a hot seat question and answer session and a quiz with students.

The children grilled the captain on his experiences onboard ship, asking him about day to day life, the punishments he had faced while at sea, whether he has ever walked the plank, and the countries he has visited.

After some songs with Captain Hughes and Ainsley, the children then tackled a quiz on flags of the world.

"It was a great way to have some fun, and get some good learning in, at the end of term," Mrs Clayton said.

Our Class Pet

In Class KC we have a biorb with some Zebra Danios. Sometimes we need to do a bit of fundraising to help pay for the filter replacement cartridge and fish food. The last idea the children had was a book exchange. It is helping them develop their enterprise skills!

Pedestrian Training

Pupils in Year 3 learn how to be safe pedestrains through training with York city council road safety experts. Please help your child to keep safe by reminding them of expected behaviour and to always...
