Spofforth school: staff have commenced the new academic year with the launch of their updated curriculum in which questions are at the heart of the children’s learning. For instance: ‘what was it like when the Queen came to the throne and how have things changed since that day ?’ Class two have set up .their own coronation day and invited the children from class one. Of course, they all had tea and scones. Mrs Curtis would like to create a mud kitchen and would be extremely grateful for any of the following donations: crates (wooden or otherwise); tin camping mugs and bowls; old pans; kitchen utensils (not knives); a sink; offcuts of wood to make a table plus anything else which you may consider suitable. Please see Mrs Curtis or the early years staff for further information.
