Level 2 football – Richmond

Posted by mrjholmes on Wednesday Oct 24, 2018 Under Years 5 and 6

On a very windy Tuesday afternoon, Bedale were anticipating a tough tournament in the Level 2 boys football at Richmond Secondary.

After a rushed start (due to calamities by Mr Holmes) Bedale got off to an usual start of losing. Getting caught out by the wind on several occasions, we saw our first three results finish in all 1-0 defeats against Spennithorne/Middleham, Le Cateau (eventual winners) and Bolton-on-Swale respectively.

These results did not dampen the boys’ spirits as they battled it out for the following two, winning 4-0 and 2-1 against RAF Leeming and Hipswell. (Goals from Jake x3, Harley x2 and Kieran). Our last game of the day ended with another 1-0 loss to a strong Richmond St Mary’s side.

Well done to all again as they showed great desire and super teamwork, consistently picking one another up when heads were dropping.

Next up, the Girls’ Football which has been moved to November.

It’s an Air Raid!

Posted by mrjholmes on Wednesday Oct 24, 2018 Under Uncategorized

The Year 3 and 4 children have worked really hard on their homework this Half Term, creating wonderful Anderson Shelter replicas and designs. As a team, we decided that it would only be fair to explore each class’ models to commend the hours that must have been put in.


There were plenty more fantastic designs displayed around the class and I’m sure the class Teacher will let you have a look in the class topic book for more photos.


Thank you to everyone that helped their child, the children should be very proud.

Level 1 cluster tournament

Posted by mrjholmes on Thursday Oct 11, 2018 Under Years 3 and 4

Thursday 11th October was the day of the eagerly awaited Level 1 cluster tournament.

Bedale took 2 teams again this year and each of them performed superbly well.

Some excellent team work and sportsmanship shown throughout so the boys should be very proud of themselves.

Unfortunately, neither team managed to come away as victors with both having to face each other in a semi final. The team that got through to the final came agonisingly close several times within the game but could only draw 0-0 and the result of penalties went the  against us, as luck was just in the hands of RAF Leeming.

Rightly so, Bedale will be able to attend the next level in  a few weeks time with one team.

Team 1 results and scorers followed by Team 2…

W 3-0 v Masham (Rowan, Harley S, Jake)

W 4-0 v KBSTW (Harley x2, Jake x2)

W 2-0 v Burneston (Kieran x2)

W 6-1 v Hunton Arrathorne (Jake x2, Rowan x2, Kieran, Harley)

SEMI W 6-0 v Bedale (Harley, Remy, Jake x2, Kieran, Rowan)


L 0-1 v RAF Leeming

W 3-0 v Masham 2 (Kayden, Harley R, Seth)

W 5-0 v Leeming Londonderry/Pickhill (Niko x3! Kayden, Harley)

Shared Reading

Posted by mrjholmes on Wednesday Oct 10, 2018 Under Years 3 and 4, Years 5 and 6

On Monday, Mr Holmes’ class had a bit of a treat. The children from Mr Hartley-Haw’s have been busy writing up about their trip to Reeth and wanted to share their excellent recounts.

The year 4s were extremely impressed with their work and so was Mr Holmes. They definitely sounded like they enjoyed themselves and learnt a lot at the same time.

Swale Study

Posted by bedaleprimaryschool on Saturday Oct 6, 2018 Under Years 5 and 6

Our Y5 and Y6 classes visited the River Swale near Reeth this week as part of their geography topic. While we were there we found some of the river features we have been learning about in class, drew field sketches and measured the flow rate at various parts of the river. It was cold, it was windy but it was fun!

Year 3/4 morning with the food caterer, Mellors

Posted by mrjholmes on Tuesday Oct 2, 2018 Under Years 3 and 4

The children of year 3 and 4 got to enjoy some learning and tasting with our new caterers.

Did you know that a banana should be eaten when black? This is because it contains more good sugars and tastes sweeter too.

We learnt more about Fair-trading which is our current English topic and tried some delicious treats along the way, including cinder toffee which was made in front of us!

While we were listening carefully, the chef was cooking a Mozambican styled curry and to everyone’s delight, we got to enjoy a portion.

Taste of India

Posted by bedaleprimaryschool on Thursday Sep 20, 2018 Under Years 5 and 6

Years Five and Six got a delicious taste of India on Monday when one of the Mellor’s Catering team came in to demonstrate how to rustle up a delicious curry. The children heard a little about the background of curry dishes in the UK and watched as two were created in front of their eyes. We all then got to taste them! What a treat…
