Federation Events


What a performance we were treated to when the children of our federation took to the stage at the Georgian Theatre for a magical evening of song, dance, drumming, poetry, science, maths and more to celebrate their learning about Africa this term. We were incredibly proud of the way the children threw themselves into their performances, and are sure it is an experience they will remember for a very long time. Many of the people in the audience commented on the children’s confidence on stage and their exceptional singing which was very moving at times. It was evident to all that the children have thoroughly enjoyed learning about the amazing continent of Africa this term. Our collection for the Disasters Emergency Committee’s appeal for the people of East Africa raised just over £200.


On Friday 4th November the children in Key Stage two went on an exciting visit to Richmond. First stop was at the Georgian theatre to learn about life long ago. The children really enjoyed the tour of the theatre and trying on Georgian clothing and costumes. From there we took a short walk to the Influence church where the children learned about the food bank and who it helps. After lunch in the Friary Gardens we took a walk round the Market place, Castle Walk and to the station. A fabulous day out!

We were really pleased to be able to enter a federated football team into the small schools football tournament yesterday. This was the first time we have taken part as a federation in a sporting competition, and although the children didn’t come away with any medals, the tenacious  ‘Kirkby Cowtons’ as they named themselves, played with a determination and team spirit that made the staff and parents who were watching really proud. Well done!


Our Year 6 children enjoyed their visit to Ripon Cathedral for the annual leaver's service. It gave them opportunity to reflect on all their achievements during their time in our church schools.


The children thoroughly enjoyed Roop Singh’s visit as you can see from Lucy Shirt’s comments below:

What can I tell you about Roop Singh? Well I shall start with the time I walked through the hall doors and I spotted his long beard. He wore a yellowy- orange turban and an  outfit that was all white, apart from the odd burst of colour coming from the symbol and his sash that held a sword. The sword is a symbol of truth, freedom, honour, justice and protection.

His humour with story telling surprised me and, I am guessing, most of the others. He told the story of the mug (beautiful mug) and how it spoke to him at a car boot sale. It made me laugh  and some people even cried, that made it even more exciting!’

For the summer term 2016, the children from Kirkby Fleetham School will travel to East Cowton for a federation afternoon every Wednesday. They will work with children of their own age in PE, French and PSHCE (split into Y1/2, Y3/4, Y5/6). This is the perfect opportunity for them to get to know each other a little better, and provides increased challenge at an appropriate level.

Author Visit 26.4.16

All staff in our federation strongly believe that enjoyment of reading is of vital importance to children throughout all areas of their learning. This week both schools came together at East Cowton to be entertained by Andy Seed a noted author of children’s books. The children had a fantastic time learning and reciting rhymes and the readings were followed by book signings and sales. It was wonderful to see them laughing and enjoying books together, and also to see them huddled together sharing his books at lunchtime and playtimes.


The KS1 children wrote a poem inspired by his work:


What’s your name? Mr Cool

Where do you go? East Cowton School

What do you do? We stay awake

What do you eat? Chocolate cake

How many grams do you eat in a day? 58 now go and play.
