We are proud to announce that for the fourth consecutive year have successfully achieve the School Games Gold Sports Mark Award.  This confirms our commitment to promoting children’s participation in a wide choice of competitive and non-competitive sports and clubs that is inclusive and accessible to everyone of all abilities.  The achievement in gaining this Award recognises our commitment to encouraging our pupils to have a  positive attitude towards healthy lifestyle choices. 


It has been wonderful to have had occasions this term when we have been able to invite the wider community to join us for some school events and we hope to strengthen these even further.  Some recent key events in school have included:

  • An enrichment curriculum week was based on 'Performing Arts'  During the week various activities took part including a circus skills workshop, dance linked to a story book, a puppet theatre performance was held for the school and local community and Crag Bradley, a children's poet, visit the school to host a day of fun filled poetry workshops. 
  • The school’s Harvest Festival Service was held in the Methodist Church with a collection in aid of The Dragonfly Foundation – a charity which raises money for a school in India.  The Church was at bursting point, every child contributed and it was enjoyed by all.

  • A successful and highly informative reading and phonics information evening for parents was held by Mr Barwick.  Parents were shown how we teach reading in school so that they can support their child at home.

  •  To mark the centenary of the end of WWI children made a waterfall of 100 poppies which was displayed in the school hall.  A Remembrance Service for parents and villagers was held at school with a roll of honour being read out in memory of pupils’ and staffs’ relatives who lost their lives in conflict.

  • The School Council organised a crazy non-uniform with fun activities day in aid of Children in Need – lots of fun raised for a good cause.

  • The Friends of Husthwaite School held a Smartie Tube Challenge – children had to fill Smartie tubes with 20p in return for doing a good deed or small job for family/friends/relatives.  The class who raised the most money will be rewarded with a prize.

  • Children were encouraged to wear odd socks to school in recognition of Anti-Bullying week.  Odd socks represented children being able to express themselves, celebrate their individuality and recognise what makes us all unique.

  • The school hall was turned in a restaurant as parents and relatives joined children for a family school lunch.

  • Class 3 enjoyed their temly visit to PrimeTime at Husthwaite village hall to join in games of Boccia and Kurling.

  • Mrs Bucknole, the school cook, cooked a delicious roast dinner for the Orchard Village Club this month which was very well received by the club’s members.


    A Christingle Service was held in St Nicholas Church with a collection in aid of The Children's Society.  Class 2 helped to lead the service and the Husthwaite Hummingbirds Choir performed some Christmas songs..

  • The School Christmas Fair was a huge success thanks to the support of parents and members of the local community.  Carol singing at the end of the Fair was particularly welcomed.




Please remember if you have a toddler or would like to join us for a social cuppa, our weekly 9am ‘Stay and Play’ session and ‘Unfrazzle’ is every Friday in the school hall.  ‘Stay and Play’ is a free toddler session open to all pre-school children from 9-10am.
