First News

Miss Loureiro’s Year 7 students had a look at the digital version of First News for the first time this week in their library lesson. They worked together in small groups to find some interesting articles that feature in the news in this week’s edition.

Here are some articles that grabbed our students’ attention:

· Two boys found in the Amazon rainforest after a month.

· Aldi has launched a giant hot cross bun.

· Five ancient tombs have been discovered in Egypt.

· Octopuses are adapting to the litter in our oceans by using it for shelter.

· Seagulls have a favourite fish and chip shop!

· Beavers have returned to London for the first time in 400 years.

· A cat called Stefan was evacuated from Ukraine and now has 1.1 million followers on TikTok.

The students were able to talk about their favourite articles at the end of the lesson where they listened attentively and respected each other.

It was wonderful to see our students empowered by global news knowledge! - Miss Busby, Librarian


National Festival


Tuesday at the National Festival. The girls played really well considering we only had 9 players (11 a-side!) and carrying injuries (special mention to Demi who carried on with a knee injury!), managing to win all their games except one, meaning they're through to the National Finals to be held on 27th April at Featherstone Rovers. They also have the Yorkshire Cup Final on Wednesday 30th March so please wish them congratulations and good luck for the next rounds. Additionally, some of the girls were approached by York Knights off the back off their performance, so a massive well done to them too.
