Our Autumn Term is off to a good start and already we have some exciting things to look forward to. Our new classes are well settled and staff and children throughout school are all working hard.
Our regular swimming sessions are under way and our new music teacher, Mrs McCormack has started to teach the clarinet and flute to years 5 and 6, whilst keeping up the good work started by Mrs Hallows, in teaching years 3 and 4 the recorder.
All classes are now enjoying multi-skills sessions led by the excellent Mr Bullock, and year 6 are visiting the local secondary schools in view of making their important choices for next year.
Our Harvest Festival Service was a tremendous sucess this week and we approach half term excited by the pantomime visit and Nativity Play we can look forward to on our return.

Our school is very fortunate to be located at the head of Wensleydale in the beautiful unspoilt Yorkshire Dales National Park. Our children either live in Hawes or the surrounding villages and hamlets. Hawes Primary School is highly regarded within the local community who strongly support the school in many ways.
We think that it is important that our children are happy and secure when they are at school and that parents and staff work closely together in an atmosphere of mutual trust for the children's benefit. Our school has a friendly family atmosphere and an open door policy.
We aim to give our pupils the skills they need for the future not only in high educational standards but also in developing their moral and spiritual values in as chool where the children are happy. Our children are keen to learn and enjoy coming to school. Staff are committed to providing the best possible education for each individual child whilst also encouraging an enthusiastic desire for learning.
Below are some rolling pictures that illustrate a little project that we set up about 'extreme reading'. These photos come from India, Belize and Yorkshire. This year we are hoping to explore 'things that grow' as a digital topic.
