Golden Tickets!

As part of our World Book Day celebrations, Mrs Commins hid golden tickets around the school. It created huge excitement as children searched high and low to find them. Pictured are the lucky winners in our fabulous school library. The children will soon be visiting a book shop with Mrs Commins and Ms Holmes to choose and buy the books for the school.

LOLLIES Competition

Congratulations to the winners of our book review competition. The children enjoyed spending their £5 vouchers at the opening evening of our Book Fair.

Please do come along and support this fabulous cause. There are lots of books at discounted rates to choose from. The Book Fair is open from 3.15 p.m. to 4.00 p.m. on Wednesday 1st November and Thursday 2nd November in the school's Main Hall.

Money raised will be used to purchase books for our school library.

Wind in the Willows

Tickets are now on sale for our summer production of Wind in the Willows. Priced at £3 each, available for the 6pm performance on Monday 17th July and the 2pm and 6pm performances on Tuesday 18th July. Weather permitting, this will be an outdoor production - picnic blankets optional!


The pupils at Appleton Roebuck were incredibly lucky earlier in the week when a tutor form the Helen O'Grady Drama school joined us to give the children a taster of what to expect if they join her sessions. The children had a fabulous time creating a short scene. There are definitely some budding actors in our midst! Places are still available in the Monday club. Children were given flyers with details.

Getting Crafty!

The start of the Craft Club was very calm and focused this afternoon - children enjoyed listening to calming music and concentrated hard to make hot air balloons.
Many thanks to Mrs Campbell for running this club in her time - lots of exciting things are to follow!

Wedding Celebration

The Year 5 and Year 6 choir children had a special treat on Friday when they were invited to sing at a wedding in Riccall. They sounded angelic - not many dry eyes in the church after their performance. The organ master thought that the harmonies were a backing track and couldn't believe it was our small group of singers. Obviously we already know how fabulous they are. Well Done, everyone!
