Litter Picking Superstars!

We've received a wonderful email on Saturday 19th January about five of our students and their great efforts to clean up the countryside around us.


I just wanted to highlight some of the great stuff 5 of your students carried out this weekend. We did a litter pick on the road that runs along the back of Ruston Parva to the A614. In the end we collected 30 bags of rubbish and pretty much half a car! The children were a great help and very well behaved. They used their litter pickers to fill the bags of rubbish.
They had a great time and their parents are very proud of their efforts. We'd just thought we'd let you know, as the school and its lessons are a big part of their life and their understanding of the environment comes from the teachers at the school as well as us.
The children involved were
Olivia Williamson
Lauren Chapman
Emily Stanard
William Lawson
Thomas Lawson
Thank you so much for this email and the pictures below, it makes us very proud to see such responsibility that our children have, for the environment around them and they are an inspiration to us all.  What a worthwhile way to spend the weekend - well done!


Members of the choir were lucky enough to take part in Young Voices 2020 concert in Sheffield on Tuesday.  What a fantastic opportunity - we're very proud of them!

NEWS JUST IN: The whole of Driffield came to a complete standstill when the 'Beast from the East' swept through, causing chaos. These pictures were taken at Nafferton Primary School and showed the doom and gloomed faces of pupils at the school. Children had the choice to venture down for a snow battle on the front playground or elect a more quieter session up on the top field. We all went into the Hall for a sing-song and a hot chocolate. And this was just the morning! Stay tuned for pictures for the afternoon. Whoever said "no snow day" would be a "no fun day"!?

Everyone was cheering for each other. We all won lots of races. I am very proud of everyone because they tried their best. Everyone was really happy that we had won. All of the teachers that came were very helpful and supportive. We hope to win again next year and come back champions again!" Well done all. You are all 'swimmer winners'.

Nafferton Sponsor Jahaira

Nafferton Primary School have been sponsoring Jahaira-Gutierrez Palacios since she was 8 years old through a charity called 'Plan'. Jahaira lives in Equador, which is in South America, with her family. She writes to us a few times a year and we send letters and pictures back to her. We learn lots of things about her life and the differences between living in Equador and Britain. Because Jahaira speaks Spanish, a translator re-writes our letters so that she can understand them.

Music at Nafferton Primary School

Lots of music happens at our school - We love it! We sing our hearts out at every given opportunity and it makes us feel good! There are lots of clubs and lessons - choir, steel band, guitar, violin, cello, brass + EVERYONE learns to play an instrument at some point. We do lots of concerts (we thrive on them) and we all have opportunities to take to the stage on many occasions. We love tying in our music lessons with topic work as we learn music from all over the world, different historical periods and specific areas. MUSIC IS FUN!

The Great Exhibition (Nafferton School Style)

Young inventors from years 5 and 6 gathered on 6th December to display their creations to parents and visitors – some had travelled far (Hornsea) to attend this bi-annual event. Year 5 have used their Design and Technology skills to build 21st Century gadgets. There were dispensers of all kinds – food, dog treats, drinks; aids for gift wrapping, sound-proof boxes to help ‘Ferbies’ have a good night’s sleep, absorbent door mats, a water-logged welly pump, cat toys, baby toys, people detectors, and even.... As well as their inventions, Year 5 used their electrical circuit knowledge to create a burglar alarm for an array of buildings, some of which lit up and flashed. Year 6’s DT project has been to invent a fair-ground ride to entertain visitors to the exhibition. There were carousels, vertical drops from outer space, Harry Potter rides, Jungle Adventure, a Pirate Ship (swinging) and even an Inferno Ride around the top of a volcano! All these thrilling rides were powered a computer program called Flowol (with circuit back-up!) It was an amazing afternoon. One very special visitor, Mr John Collins, a retired civil engineer and University Lecturer, was most impressed. “The thing that comes across is the enthusiasm of the children, the kind that comes about through hands-on experience and learning the skills that help them do things by themselves. What a fantastic variety of ideas and the children spoke so well and could explain things in great detail. When these children leave school they can use these inventive skills to create jobs for themselves and many others in the future, as many of the jobs that exist now will disappear in their adulthood.” The future is safe in Nafferton’s hands!

Summer Solstice

According to the online dictionary, solstice refers to "...either of the two times a year when the sun is at its greatest distance from the celestial equator: about June 21, when the sun reaches its northernmost point on the celestial sphere, or about December 22, when it reaches its southernmost point." Here is Nafferton Primary School summer solstice in full action. Great fun had by all on an afternoon where the children were spoilt for choice on activities, food and entertainment.

Year 3/4 Visit to Flamborough & Bempton Cliffs

The Year 3/4 classes visited Bempton Cliffs and Flamborough in an 'above' (cliffs) and 'below' (Flamborough) themed trip. The children learnt about the various seabirds and were even treated to a special viewing of baby pufflings. The rock pooling adventure was a great experience for the children as Anna, Sean and the rest of the team showed us sea creatures close up. The red-eyed, velvet crab was certainly not pleased with being picked up by Anna! Once again, commendable behaviour from the children as ambassadors of Nafferton Primary School.
