KS2 took part in an assembly facilitated by an organisation called ‘The York Stars’.  The assembly addressed issues surrounding mental health in an age appropriate way.  There was then a workshop focusing on emotional resilience, trust and working with others.

Skelton OOSC held a Hogwarts Halloween afternoon, where young wizards and witches were presented with a handwritten Hogwarts acceptance letter and chose a Hogwarts house to represent them for the afternoon. 
 
There was wand decorating (with each wand accompanied by a scroll detailing its properties and abilities), a charms class, fun dueling in the hall, a feast of spooky Halloween-themed snacks and treats, gooey lucky dip with each team winning a chocolate frog AND a potions class with fun and creative experiments!
 
Our newly-formed football teams played a couple of games this month, culminating in Year 3/4's superb win over Yearsley Grove!  We are looking forward to the lighter nights so we can keep training together and win some more matches!!
