CLAY DAY 2019
26th June. It was really good to have Mrs Grant come back to Bugthorpe for the day - her expertise and knowledge regarding clay is amazing. Having produced castles and aliens the previous two years, this time we thought we'd be a little more daring and go for Day of the Dead Skulls. It was nice to actually choose something Mrs Grant had never done before! These images are the creation of the skulls and completion before they are fired the first time. We're trying to arrange a date after that first firing so the children can glaze their own skull. Not their own skull, but...you know what I mean.
KWIK CRICKET 2019 - SECOND ROUND
Having played marvellously in the Wolds' Cluster event at Market Weighton, the cricketers travelled to Beverley for the East Riding finals. Up against stiff competition and much, much larger schools, the team finished a magnificent seventh out of eleven. Well done! Thanks to the parent helpers who transported and supported.
STOCK MARKET CHALLENGE - 2019
On the 21st of June, twelve children from Class 4 had the opportunity to attend the Stock Market Challenge at York University. Organised by the University and Woldgate School, the event was a child friendly version of the real thing. The children were organised into teams of four and each member had a specific role - buyer, seller, finance manager and researcher. Ten fictitious companies were the focus of the day, and depending on what happened to those companies - new product releases, public disasters, take-overs, victims of cyber attacks, etc - the share prices went up or down. The teams had to make decisions as to which companies to invest in and when to buy and sell the shares, all within a limited time. It was fast-paced, hectic, sometimes heated but most of all, fun!
