If you are a Crayke resident, you should by now know that the weekend of 9th and 10th April is the village ‘open weekend’. Although it is the last weekend of the Easter holidays, we hope that many families will be able to come and enjoy the weekend. The Governors are going to be opening the school garden and outdoor classroom on the Saturday and a selection of the children’s work will be on display.
There are plenty of things for children to do over the weekend, including activities at the Sports Hall, a ‘Royal’ Treasure Hunt around the open gardens, lots of delicious home-made food and a tombola. We would love each family in school to contribute a tombola prize to enable the tombola to last all weekend! To this end, there will be a non-uniform day on Tuesday, 22nd March and instead of asking for a financial donation, we are asking for items for the tombola.
As part of the events during the weekend, we are inviting the children to make a crown, to acknowledge the Queen’s 90th Birthday later in the month. The crowns will be displayed at the Sports Hall and a prize awarded to the best crown from each class. The crowns will be judged by The Deputy Lieutenant of North Yorkshire – Alexandra Holford. The crowns must be made at home and brought into school before Wednesday, 23rd March or delivered to the Sports Hall by midday on Saturday, 10th April.
Please bring crowns and tombola donations into school during the last week of term. There will be a box available in the school entrance hall. Crowns must have names and class written on the inside.
Any queries, please contact Fiona Warriner (823131).
