Food showdown!

To start Healthy Eating Week we welcomed our first food showdown into school on Thursday. 2 teams, the green peas and red chillies were given 15 minutes and some ingredients. 


The red chillies stuck to their name and made a spicy chickpea curry while the green peas went for a sweet and sour stirfry. The green peas were victorious in their culinary delight!

Tour De Yorkshire! 4.5.18

Catterick Cluster Tennis Tournament - 2.5.18

On Wednesday it was fabulous to see children from Year 3 and 4 represent our school at the cluster tennis tournament. Well done to Myah, Olivia, Jay N and Corey for working so hard and winning the tournament! We now look forward to going into the next level of championship tournament. 


Well done to our Year 5 and 6 team of Katie B, Leyla, Heike and Alfie for putting in such a strong effort and being true sportspeople. All the children played very well and worked hard as a great team. 


Yoga lessons! 25.4.18

Class 2/3B had their first yoga lesson today for P.E. The children were shown how to meditate, relax and focus on key relaxation techniques. A lovely way to spend a chilly afternoon!

Music Demonstration.

 School received a visit from The Northern School of Contemporary Music this term to give a demonstration of what children could learn if taking part in drum or guitar lessons. Tutor Stuie and his team showed the children a variety of different instruments and gave a brilliant performance!


It was fabulous for some of the children to have a go of the instruments and the whole school had a great sing along with Jess Glynne!

Sporting visit!

School received a welcome visitor this week from former Middlesbrough FC Captain Julio Arca, who was in the area encouraging children to get out and play football in the upcoming Easter Holidays. Children were given the chance to ask the Argentinian footballer questions and can learn more about his skills in an Easter holiday football club. If your child would be interested in doing this, please contact the school office.

Launch day - Viva la Samba!

To launch our topic of "travelling the world" we invited Steve into school for the day for a Samba Drumming workshop. Each class had a chance to practice and perform at the end of the day using a wide range of instruments. It was brilliant fun! 

NSPCC National Number Day

We supported children who are not as fortunate as us this half term by coming dressed up in Numbers for National Number Day. Our theme was 365 penguins, so we read the book and went on a penguin hunt! Our maths activities included arrays, problem solving and number bonds involving penguins. It was a number - tastic day! 


History Exhibition - 8.2.18


Our unit of work this half term has been based on History and  "time travellers". To celebrate the children's work the school hall was turned into a History exhibition for parents to attend. Children were able to show off their work, explain what they have learnt and sell their homemade products in the museum gift shop! Visitors of the exhibition could also participate by sampling some historic food and dig for dinosaur bones. Have a look at what we have done!

KS2 Christmas Performance.

What a day and night! Thank you to all those who attended our wonderful Christmas Performance. Our KS2 children did an amazing job retelling the Nativity. A special well done to our 5/6 class who wrote their script themselves, talking about the different Christmas traditions of the World.

Please look at the pictures below - we are extremely proud of all the children who took part!

Healthy Eating Week - Tuesday. 

On Tuesday we welcomed a local dentist into our assembly to explain to us the importance of keeping our teeth healthy and the process of how our teeth grow and develop. 

After this we took part in a whole school challenge by walking 10 miles between us! Nursery started the walk well by doing 2 laps of our school grounds, and ended with year 5/6 doing 4 laps of out school grounds. Just another way to keep us healthy and active!

Healthy Eating Week 2017 - Monday. 

We kicked off Healthy Eating Week 2017 with an introduction assembly and by making fruit faces with lots of different combinations! The children were given a chance to try new fruit and vegetables at snack time, with mango, melon and blueberries being a new school favourite! We were also lucky enough to burn off some energy in the afternoon with an army assault course in the hall to help learn different skills, such as climbing, jumping and balancing. 

Carnagill History exhibition 25.5.17

 To end our history unit work this half term the school hall was turned into a history exhibition where the children were able to showcase the work they had completed at school. Each class had a stand and "tour guides" that could explain the work each class had been doing. It was a brilliant way for the children to show their families what they had been doing in school. 


We received lots of positive comments from parents including:

  • "there was lovely work by all of the children"
  • "The children have made a fantastic effort"
  • "I found it very interesting and the children explained it well"
  • "I learnt lots of things myself"


Have a look below at some of the pictures of our exhibition and look at all the amazing work the children have completed this half term. 

Red, white and blue day - 3.4.17. 

We showed our support for the armed forces this week by participating in a red, white and blue day.

Red, White & Blue Day is being run jointly by ABF The Soldiers’ Charity, The RAF Benevolent Fund and The Royal Navy and Royal Marines Charity. Each of these three charities is responsible for the welfare of soldiers, sailors and airmen and their families.

The theme of the day was looking at the role of women in the armed forces since 1918 after the end of World War 1. The children participated in lots of different activities, including writing letters to loved ones in the trenches and having a tea dance!  In the afternoon the older children took part in a workshop where they learnt about key facts of the World Wars and got to look at some of the memorabilia that has been collected and saved over the years.

The day was rounded off in great style with a whole school tea party on the playground. All of the children had great fun and learnt lots of different facts about the armed forces.

Gargoyle Competition. 

Throughout the month of March the children have been taking part in a North Yorkshire Gargoyle Competition that has been ran by Ripon Cathedral. The winning entry from the competition will have their design turned into a real gargoyle that will be carved out of stone and seen on the walls of Ripon Cathedral for the next hundred years. 

It was lovely that so many children took part in this competition; all of our entries will be on display in the Cathedral from the middle of April, and we will keep you updated of any finalists we hear of!

Here are just a few of the fabulous gargoyle designs some of our children made!

World Book Day - 2.3.17.

Carnagill CP School joined thousands of other schools across the country to celebrate World Book Day, showing off some amazing reading skills and creative costumes!

The children completed lots of fun reading activities, including an "extreme read" where they had to read a book in a very strange place. Some of the best contenders were in the air, whilst mucking out the pigs and on a scooter! Older children shared their knowledge of words with the younger children of our school and were able to share what their favourite books were.

At the end of the day all of the children were presented with a book ticket to exchange for a new book in our school book store that was here for one special day, and each class was given a set of brand new books suitable for all. It was a book - tastic day!

Please enjoy looking at the pictures below - which famous characters from books can you see?  

Farm trip 1.3.17

Our KS1 topic for Spring is "down on the farm". We went to visit Weatheriggs Animal Sanctuary in County Durham to meet the animals and learn about what happens on a farm. We were very lucky that we met and fed cows, sheep, pigs, donkeys, goats and an alpaca! We also had lots of cuddles with a week old kid who liked to jump over us and tried to eat our hair!

It was a lovely day out and we learnt so much - look at how much fun we had! 


To end our Autumn Term topic we had a trip to our local church for a Christingle Service. Thank you to all the parents and families who came and took part in the service with us. It was a very special time to think about light and a lovely way to end the term together.
