Spot anything familiar?

Year Five pupils – can you spot anything familiar in this photograph from the Hawes National Park Centre?

“We were very impressed with the pupils’ knowledge of the individual peaks and the history surrounding them. It was good to see that they also encouraged people to stay safe and respect the countryside. I would like to say very well done to you all.

Fran Coates, Manager.

Swaledale Mountain Rescue

Posted by bedaleprimaryschool on Saturday Jan 18, 2020 Under Geography, Uncategorized, Years 5 and 6

As part of our Geography work on mountains, we had a visit from James Foxwell from the Swaledale Mountain Rescue. He spoke to the pupils about the work they do and ways of making sure you stay safe if heading out to explore our local area. It was interesting to see photographs of the landscape we have been exploring on maps as well as hearing about incidents of flooding and flood rescue which linked to our work last term.

Thank you to James for coming to visit us. If you would like to know more about the work of the Swaledale Mountain Rescue team, including ways you can help support their work, then you can visit their website and facebook pages by clicking below:

We ended the Autumn term by revisiting some of our Design and Technology work. Looking at what went wrong last time, we redesigned and rebuilt out Art Straw bridges with much more impressive results this time round. Our resilience and perseverance with this project really paid off!

Last week, children in KS1 and year 3 experienced a journey of the first nativity, thanks to Reverend Gareth and other lovely volunteers. It was a great way for the children to hear the story from Mary, Joseph, the Shepherds and the Wise Men. Some even got to dress up for a photo!

On Monday 9th we had a visit from the Mellors Catering nutritionist to talk about balanced diets, what food we all need to help us stay fit and healthy and what we should try to eat less of. A good reminder for us all just before Christmas with all the extra treats and temptations on offer!

Last week some of our pupils (along with Mrs Pike and Mrs Harland) planted many daffodil bulbs in and around our school grounds. The bulbs were donated by Bedale town council and the children discussed through the school council where we could plant them so our local community could enjoy them when the burst through in Spring. Keep your eyes open for them in a few months!

Girls’ Football 2019

Posted by mrjholmes on Friday Nov 15, 2019 Under Uncategorized

With intermittent downpours and brief dry spells, it was a question of whether the tournament would take place this afternoon. Thankfully, it was. The girls performed superbly well considering the majority or the team having minimal footballing experience. They dug deep and battled hard for each other through the whole afternoon.

By the half way point, Bedale were top of the table having beat Pickhill and RAF Leeming 7-0 and 4-0 respectively.

After a short break, the real tests began against Crakehall and Richmond Methodist. Both were gruelling games and unfortunately, we fell short both times with 2-0 and 3-2 defeats.

The results meant that Bedale finished 3rd and in this case, will not be progressing through. However, the girls did our school proud and had a wonderful time. They didn’t even feel the cold!

Goal scorers – Lili with 9 goals, Kyra with 3 goals and Bailey-Ann with 1.
