Although the weather has been a bit miserable this week, you and your lovely children certainly haven’t! Seeing all of the pictures and hearing about all of the wonderful things that you are all getting up to really brightens all our days! A very special thank you to those parents that have brought lovely treats to school for the teachers to enjoy – it has really helped us through (not helped with our diets but who cares!)
Run Around the World
Staff and governors at all 24 schools across Ebor Academy Trust and in the central services team are invited to join with pupils, parents and carers to take part in our charity challenge, Run Around the World!
If all of the 6,000 pupils, plus 500 others – including you and your family – take part and run, walk, cycle or wheel 200 metres per day during each day in May, we will collectively have travelled over 40,000km. And that’s the distance right around the planet.
You don’t have to take part in our Run Around the World if you don’t want to, but we believe it will be an enjoyable distraction in these unsettling times. Bear in mind, instead of 200 metres a day you could always do 1,400 metres in one go a week – or even more, if you are able to.
You can register your achievements on a day-by-day basis by using the online form here: https://forms.gle/8kur7UD439Vb5HCi6
Adding your distances travelled every day using the online form, means we can track our progress on a map to see how we’re doing.
We have a sponsorship page (www.justgiving.com/fundraising/eborworldrun), for those who are able to donate. All donations will go to charities that support the NHS. We appreciate these are financially difficult times for many, however, and there is no expectation for you to contribute. Our key objective is to stay active to feel better.
We do hope you can join us in this big adventure!
Work for the Children
Staff will continue to set work electronically for the children but if it is easier and you would like teachers to print some work out for you to collect please let your teacher know. I ask that you please be patient as the school printer is VERY temperamental and due to the school rota system there are limited staff in school at any one time. As always we will try our very best!
Congratulations Mrs Seaver!
All our team are so proud of Mrs Seaver this week who achieved her Qualified Teacher Status! Not an easy thing to do whilst working full-time and looking after a family! Well done!
