Sports Afternoon in Aid of Cancer Research

Thank you to all pupils for taking part in our Sports Afternoon on Wednesday.

The school has raised £231 to donate to the charity.


Well Done!

This half term has been very busy with lots going on in school. Years 2 and 6 children have completed their SATs tests and worked so hard. They should be proud of themselves.


Canon Popham’s Royal Wedding

We hope that everyone enjoyed our ‘royal wedding’.  If you didn’t manage to catch the report on Look North the BBC have kindly provided us with a version which can be found on our school website.

Many thanks to everyone who helped in any way to make this such a fabulous day, which we hope the children will remember for many years to come.


Sporting Events

Well done to our sports teams who have been in action over the last couple of weeks.

A cross country team attended the event at Hill House last Saturday. Well done to everyone who took part and particularly to the girl’s team who came 3rd and Sam Robinson who came 4th in the individual event.

Our Y4, Y5 and Y6 girls and boys football teams did very well at their inter school matches,

and won their events.

Our TAG rugby team were victorious at their inter school event at Castle Park and have qualified for the Hill House Rugby Finals in June.

Thank you to all the children who represent our school so well and behave with great sportsmanship and enthusiasm. Thanks also to Mr. Dickman for all the work that he puts into these events.



This week Year 6 children have also had their bikes in school to complete the ‘Bikeability’ training. This helps to prepare them for being out and about on their bikes independently.

Years 1 and 2 have visited Yorkshire Wildlife Park this week. They had a fabulous day in the sunshine and enjoyed learning about the animals.
