Girls Football Level 2

Posted by mrjholmes on Tuesday Dec 11, 2018 Under Years 5 and 6


Tuesday afternoon was the new date for the girls Level 2 football tournament. In cold wintery conditions, the team worked really hard together and were up against some tough opponents.

The tournament proved to be difficult with the girls coming away with 2 draws and 2 defeats. Our goal came in a 1-1 draw against the eventual winners. The girls all did themselves proud and can walk away with their heads held high. Maybe next year…

Elf Day!

Posted by bedaleprimaryschool on Friday Dec 7, 2018 Under EYFS, Years 1 and 2

The festive season started in full swing on Monday December 3rd as 200 “elves” arrived in school to help Santa with his Christmas preparations. A letter was received from Santa explaining how he was struggling to fulfill his Christmas obligations, with a plea for the KS1 children to lend a hand. They spent the day involved in a range of festive activities including making gifts, wrapping presents and then weighing them to check if they would fit in Santa’s sleigh. The children also made some lists of their own, with their requests to Santa, as well as creating some beautiful decorations for the classrooms. A Christmas sing-a-long was a highlight of the day, getting everyone into the spirit. A fantastically fun day was had by all!

Bedale C of E girls had their eagerly awaited chance to show off their football skills today in the Cluster Level 1 competition. On a cold, rainy and windy day, each and every one of the girls didn’t seem to mind. They just wanted to play. Showing tremendous attitudes, respect and teamwork, the team came out on top, winning all 5 games to nil! What an achievement!

Goals came from everywhere, especially from the prolific Evie and Natasha up front.

We are all really excited for the next round. Time and place TBC.

Brilliant Bridges

Posted by bedaleprimaryschool on Sunday Nov 25, 2018 Under Years 5 and 6

We tested the first of our completed art-straw bridge designs this week, seeing if they could hold a maximum mass of 3kg. In Mr Hartley-Haw’s class two of our constructions held this load. Well done to Sarah, Ebony, Adam, Archie, Josh, Jack H, Aston and Hayden for their bridges. We evaluated our designs, using the successes and failures of others, and suggested how to improve them next time. Double-layered decks and linking our reinforcing triangles together were the two improvements most groups would make.

French Visitors

Posted by bedaleprimaryschool on Thursday Oct 25, 2018 Under Uncategorized

On Tuesday October 23rd we welcomed a delegation of 8 visitors from Azay-sur-cher in the Loire region of France.

Earlier this year Bedale Twinning Association made their first visit out to France to sign a declaration of friendship with the town of Azay-sur-cher and hopes to continue to build a relationship between the two towns; giving each an understanding of the other’s customs and cultures. To showcase our fantastic local area, the twinning association arranged a series of trips for their counterparts. The visiting group included a diverse range of professions, including teachers, who were keen to see how we arranged our classrooms and delivered the British curriculum.

As part of the visit, the visitors toured a range of classrooms, from EYFS up to Key Stage 2, led by three of our lovely Year 5 girls. Along the way Year 4 delivered a fantastic performance of “Tete, epaules, genoux, pieds” which our visitors were very impressed by, and our Year 5 helpers gave a presentation on their families, showing off their fabulous French speaking skills.

Before they left our guests enjoyed a taste of Yorkshire with a cup of tea and scones with jam and cream.

Thank you to everyone who was involved, the Bedale Twinning Association really enjoyed their visit and found it very informative!
