Hawes Community Primary School

Had I the heavens' embroidered cloths, Enwrought with golden and silver light, The blue and the dim and the dark cloths Of night and light and the half-light, I would spread the cloths under your feet: But I, being poor, have only my dreams; I have spread my dreams under your feet; Tread softly because you tread on my dreams. W.B. Yeats

School choir sing at the dedication of the Hawes and High Abbotside War Memorial to the fallen.

Hawes Community Primary School children were honoured to be part of the War Memorial dedication to the 64 local men and women who lost their lives in the First and Second World War.

As part of the dedication ceremony the children, under the direction of Miss Caygill, sang “Peace, perfect peace” beautifully. They were invited to come forward and touch the newly erected monument by the Bishop of Ripon, James Bell, symbolically anchoring it into the community in which it stands.

At the ceremony on Sunday there were representatives from the army, Methodist church, Church of England, Royal British Legion, Emergency services, North Yorkshire County Council and relatives of the fallen.

The event included a two minute silence, the Last Post, and the laying of wreaths.

Thorp Perrow KS1 Trip.

Class 1 and Class 2 had a fantastic time exploring the different habitats they found at Thorp Perrow Arboretum and as a special treat we were able to meet the falcon chick. Class 1 were even lucky enough to see the joey wallaby in its mothers pouch!

Hannah said, ” I really liked the meerkats and looking at the wallabies.”

” What beautiful feathers the peregrine falcon has!” Anne.

“The goats were soft.” Said Lucas.

“I enjoyed seeing lots of funny shaped leaves and different coloured trees.” Lara.

“What beautiful leaves the trees had! I liked the little chick walking slowly.” Fausta.

“What a beautiful day it was!” Esme.

” What a lot of trees we saw!” Laughed Adam.

We had a lot of fun and would like to say thank you to the PTFA for giving us some money towards the cost of the trip.

Well done to all those who took part in this years sports day.  There was a fantastic team spirit within the house teams and fantastic encouragement from the large audience of family supporters.

We would like to say a huge thank you to all those who helped to organize the event and those who offered their assistance on the day. The children all enjoyed their ice lollies after the races, thanks to the bequest left by Owen Tom.

Nursery Play Bus Morning

On Friday 1st July the nursery children were treated to a very special and exciting morning. To start the fun the play bus came from Kirkby Lonsdale for the children to explore. Once the children were in the car park they were treated to an LED display on the front of the bus which said “Welcome Hawes Nursery.” When the children climbed on board they were soon running around and investigating all the different areas, including the ball pit, the dark den, the slide from the top deck to the bottom deck, dressing up box and props, karaoke machine and creative area. In addition to this there were soft play sections to investigate! The time flew by and soon it was time for us to leave. Once back in Nursery the children were provided with a fantastic picnic lunch made by Mrs Calvert in the canteen. Because the weather wasn’t great the children had the option of eating inside or at the table in the nursery yard. They had sandwiches, pizzas, sausages, vegetable sticks, tomatoes and then for dessert there was chocolate orange cake, banana cake and fresh strawberries.

On behalf of the children I would like to thank the following companies, groups  and individuals: Mr John Blackie for liaising with Richmondshire District Council, Cindy Power and Ellie for coming to Hawes with the bus, Richmondshire District Council for allowing us the use of the car parking spaces and also for marking out the area with cones prior to the bus arriving, the P.T.F.A. for their generous donation of funds, Mrs Calvert for the excellent picnic, Mrs Scarr and Shannon McIntire for helping out during the morning…and Miss Burton for all her enthusiasm

and continuous help. (If you look carefully at the photographs you may even spot Miss Burton on the slide!)
