Hi everybody, you wont get this until you go back but I wanted to say thank you to EVERYONE you have all always been amazing! Hope all the new pupils settle in well. I’m super excited for my first day at Ryedale!! See you all soon! 🙂
The day before im writing this I went on the taxi and got on the bus to go to Ryedale! But first I had to get up at 7 but 1 got up at 6:30!! then we got on the taxi and to the bus stop there were so many big people then the buys arrived and we all got on last and had to sit at the front. finally we got to the school after stopping in Kirkby. We got off and went to our form rooms and had our lessons ect. at the end of the day we went to the busses and I didn’t have a clue which one it was but I finally found it and then we got back to the bus stop we got on the taxi and went home.
First we got on a big bus and travelled to Malton Milton Rooms. When we got there one of the ladies introduced us to the one of the three judges called Joseph he did a performance where he read out poems then he wrote a poem with us. Then another judge came on who was called Tabitha she was an actor, she talked about how to deal with your nerves on stage it was very helpful. The last judge was called Andy Seed, he read poems and he got us to join in it was very fun. Then we had our packed lunches . After lunch it was time for the school performances but before that we watched last years winners which was Kirkbymoorside, it was very good. After that it was time for the real competition which began with z and when all the way to a . Lewis said ” I was nervous to perform on stage in front of about 200 people but I got through it and it was great we even got josephs book at the end !” Even though we didn’t win we tried our best and we had fun that’s the most important thing !!!
Today at swimming in our group , we started off with doing lots of widths to warm us up I did breast stroke because I think it is the easiest and its definitely my favourite. Then we did a length of breast stroke. we showed Sarah how we did front crawl and we were a bit bad. She showed us how to do it properly step by step. By the end we did it properly and had improved quite a lot. We practiced diving then it was time to get out. We did it properly with having our heads underwater and breathing to the side.
Me and my frends were thery scerd and nervous but I don’t know if I was the only one but I trust miss pope. so fare everything has been well. My frends have been soporting me everyone has been helping oneanouther. thancks for reeding.
As you my know Mr Dean is leaving to go and work in Kenya so we thought we should give him an amazing leaving present we asked for ideas and Sally Fitton came up with the idea of making a quilt. So we got to work straight away. It was very hard keeping it a secret from him and he kept asking us what we were doing so we just had to say nothing. Everybody got 9 squares to do a design on you could use triangles or squares or both if you wanted too. Sally started sewing it together and we had lots of different assemblies about it . some of us even stayed after school to work on it he had no idea what we were on about . When we gave it to him it was the open afternoon and he had lots of other presents like sun cream and sunhat and even a brick he also got a calendar with pictures of us on and a school photo he loved all and was very thankful everyone had lots of fun making it .
On Monday the 9th May 2016 lots of people went to the jumble sale at Fadmoor Village Hall to buy some things for themselves, also lots of people dropped a lot of their old stuff there, including me. It was very fun because it had chocolate cake. Yum Yum Yum! Lots of people went home with a million bags and then came back for more . Nearly everybody who came got something . It raised £360 pounds so that’s a lot of money for school PTA funds. WELL DONE PTA.
Every Tuesday morning 3 or 4 people go in the “kitchen”( back classroom) this time me, Alice and Oliver were cooking a fat free sponge it smelt and tasted amazing. We mixed eggs and sugar together first then added flour we mixed them together and when it was cooked we added raspberry jam and then glazed strawberries raspberry’s and blueberries they were glazed in apple jelly and also you can add some cream (optional) our family’s loved them . I wanted too make loads .It was very fun .
On Tuesday 12th it started to snow by the end of the week some places were at least 25cm deep . Most of us have built a snowman witch was really fun! We are constantly playing in it. But we need to keep warm with hats and gloves. Everyone keeps slipping over. You need to be careful because all the ice is hidden under the snow! In Farndale and Bransdale the snow is really deep! The ice is so slippy we can sledge on it and go really fast, we keep going flying! Here is a picture of Farndale :
