Today was Christmas Dinner Day at Skelton School. We had a wonderful roast dinner with all the trimmings followed by ice cream, after which we opened all of our Christmas cards. We have had a lovely day!

We had a great time this afternoon at our bubble 2 Christmas party - games, dancing, prizes, party food and, of course, a visit from Santa!!

What a wonderful morning we have had at our Christmas party. We were so excited when Santa arrived with a present for us all. We hope he still has some left in his sack for the bubble 2 party this afternoon!!

We are so excited to be bringing you our 2020 Christmas Concert on Thursday at 2.00pm. We look forward to seeing you all on Zoom! πŸŽ„πŸŽ„β˜ƒοΈβ˜ƒοΈ

We have had an amazing day Boogie Bouncing with Sarah Beyond Fitness with Sarah! Look how high we can jump! We should all sleep well tonight πŸ˜‚ We can’t wait to welcome Sarah back to Skelton in March for our next session! Thank you Sarah !

Our Design Technology lessons in Year 3 and 4 this half term have allowed us to explore different ways to join and decorate fabric using sewing skills. We designed our own Christmas Stockings and used our sewing skills to create a wonderful tree decorations. We hope you like them!

We are overwhelmed by the kindness of our Skelton School families. We have had an amazing response to our Food Bank appeal. We received so many donations that we had to make two journeys! Thank you all so very much ❀️

We have really enjoyed our 'Transport' topic in the Nursery and Reception class. Our final visitor of the year was Emma from Ivy House Stables who brought her horsebox to show us. She even brought Henry the pony to meet us too!

Today, the Year 3 and 4 class were very excited to welcome Mrs Newsham to Skelton School. Mrs Newsham is an expert on Lady Anne Clifford who we are studying as part of our β€˜Castles’ topic. She also talked to us about some of the castles that Lady Anne owned and she said that she was very impressed with how much we knew already! We hope you like this picture of us with Mrs Newsham - can you see that we are wearing our Lady Anne Clifford masks!!

We have now completed our Castles and Dragons topic in the Year 3/4 class. Our art work has focused on designing, sculpting and painting our magnificent clay dragon eyes. Aren’t they fantastic!

Most people will agree that 2020 has been a difficult year so we wanted to do what we could to spread a little Christmas cheer around the village. We have been busy making lovely Christmas cards and our school councillors have been out around Skelton this afternoon delivering them. If you got one, we hope you like it! Happy Christmas everyone πŸŽ„πŸŽ„β˜ƒοΈβ˜ƒοΈ

This week, we have had a wonderful time with Helen and Hayley of Branch Out Education. Each of the classes have had a Forest School session with them, jam-packed with Christmas activities. We have toasted marshmallows on a campfire, done a treasure hunt, made Christmas decorations and created wonderful pictures with twigs and wood. Thank you Helen and Hayley - we loved it!! πŸŽ„πŸŽ„

In the Year 1/2 class we have been baking Christmas cakes. We made some extra as a special thank you present for Mrs Bloomfield who does so much to help our school. Today, we delivered them to her and sang We Wish You a Merry Christmas. We even built a snowman for her too!
