Mrs Sykes' Retirement

       

Congratulations to Mrs Sykes on her retirement after 32 years of teaching. She has been connected with the school for 50 years, first as a pupil, moving on to be a student and then a teacher.  Mrs Sykes who was Assistant Head of the infants has also been a parent and later a grandparent at the school. The staff and pupils at St Patrick's wish her well for the future.

 

FA Schools' Cup Update

On Saturday 21st the football team travelled to Manchester to play in the Northern Finals of the English Schools' FA national competition. 11 teams arrived and we split into 2 groups before playing in the all important play-off to see who went through to the National Finals in June.

The lads showed incredible mental toughness to shake off defeat and make it out of the group and then again to overcome a rough and ready Durham side on penalties. The modest trophy and understated medal given on the day will be nothing compared to the experience. The next stage of the competition promises to be even bigger and more exciting. Howay the lads!

 

 

Year 2 Snapshot.

In Year 2, we have been really enjoying our book, George's Marvellous Medicine, by Roald Dahl.  One of our favourite activities has been writing our own recipes for Delicious Drinks, and writing instructions on how to make them.  We had to carefully measure out the ingriedients and read the scale on the jug accurately.  We finally designed labels for our bottles, and then got to taste our creations!  What a clever way to practise our English and Maths skills!
