Emerald Class

At Skelton Newby Hall Primary C of E school we promise to flourish together.

Emerald class is an Early Years/ Key stage 1 class which offers exciting opportunities both inside and outside for young children to learn. There is a large classroom indoors which is currently set up for our new nursery class, but which has ample space for KS1 learners to develop their own learning within a practical and engaging environment. There is a huge, great outdoor space including a designated early years area, a playground, a tree house, an enormous field, a pond and an allotment garden. We keep chickens on site and the children take responsibility for looking after them. 

The School is a church school and the younger children join in with Collective Worship daily, sometimes this is in school and sometimes it is in one of our local churches - St. Helens in Skelton on Ure or Christ the Consoler on the Newby Hall estate.

Outdoor learning is particularly important to us, we have a forest school session every week where we learn skills and crafts using natural materials, as well as having team building activities, games and a campfire where we cook something tasty each week to eat. 

Each Friday we join our federated School at Sharow. Staff and children  join in with their own year group classes. This is a fantastic opportunity for the children to make new friends and share new experiences. We also attend Collective Worship at St. Johns in Sharow.

Every week is a busy week full of fun, laughter and learning. Skelton Newby Hall Primary School is a tiny village school with a big personality.
