Christmas Afternoon Tea – Monday 9th December 2019
Christmas Afternoon Tea
On Monday 9th December 2019 Class Rievaulx hosted our Community Christmas Afternoon Tea where we welcomed members of our school, church and wider Elland and Hullen Edge community. We welcomed representatives from Overgate Hospice and a local care home for the elderly.
Thank you to everyone that supported us in so many ways including food and monetary donations and coming along on the day! It was a fabulous occasion and the children in Rievaulx did a wonderful job! Well done!
Thank you also to Mrs Woffenden and the choir for providing wonderful entertainment for our guests!!
Year 5 Retreat 2019
Year 5 pupils spent 2 nights at Ampleforth College for a retreat alongside St Mary's - a local catholic primary school in Halifax. We enjoyed many fun activities including walking, visiting the abbey, a Q&A session with a monk, swimming at the sports centre, mass and a stop off at Ripon Cathedral on the way home.
Well done to all of our pupils for their exemplary behaviour - you were wonderful ambassadors for our school! It was wonderful that staff at the cathedral even commented on how great we were (as well as being beautiful singers)!
Thank you to all of the staff who supported this visit and accompanied the pupils, as well as Fr. Nealon who celebrated mass with us on Friday morning.

Safe Travel Cup - June 2019
Class Rievaulx have been working hard on a project called the SAFE Travel Cup. The project is about encouraging more and more people to walk and not to use cars the way we do so our environment can develop and grow.
At St Patrick's we have already done so much to promote walking to school. Our school has use a website called travel tracker and have also appeared on the calendar news with lots of support from our local community as well as 'Living Streets'.
Rievaulx's idea is to stick stickers on products in stores to further spread the word about walking. Posters have been produced to be put on notice boards for people to see. We have wrote letters for local stores requesting if we can put our stickers on some of their most popular products. We have had permission from a few stores but we are only aloud to stick the stickers on their home brand products.
Good luck to Year 5 who are representing our class and school at the final on Friday 21st June 2019.

A special thank you goes to Mrs Woffenden and Mrs Clarke who have planned and led rehearsals throughout the year (and every year!) which our pupils thoroughly enjoy! Thank you also to family members who supported the music!
