Class 1  This week our older children have enjoyed weaving on a frame. They had a wonderful afternoon at Lanercost Priory on Tuesday afternoon.  Activities included a 'listening walk' where they had time to be reflective and to be aware of their surroundings. We enjoyed joining other children to follow the labyrinth through God’s tent.

Class 2 have had an extremely busy week with a visit to the Lakes Animal Park on Monday. We thoroughly enjoyed learning about meerkats as part of our Amazing Animals topic. We had a fantastic time and really enjoyed the birds of prey flying display. On Tuesday we had some quiet reflective time with a visit to Lanercost Priory where we learnt about Pilgrims and journeys. It was interesting to take time to just listen to our surroundings as we walked around the labyrinth. We are looking forward to sharing our A- Z of learning in Church on Friday.

Class 3 Class 3 have had a busy week.  We have started a writing unit about refugees and are working towards writing a diary entry.  We have also visited Lanercost Priory to take part in some RE activities related to journeys and rest, there were other schools present and most of our class behaved in a very respectful and calm manner. We ventured out of school on Thursday morning to visit the river and surrounding area.  We did some river dipping and saw some creatures we had never seen before. A couple of children even managed to catch a stone loach, which is a small fish that lives in the rocky areas of the river.  The sun was shining, the birds were singing and we had a fantastic time exploring.  Great effort this week Class 3! 

Class 1  This week our pea plants grew so tall that we had to replant them in our garden planter.  The children were amazed to see how many roots had developed beneath the surface They are going to continue to care for their plants so that they grow some delicious pea pods for us all to eat.  The children were excited to have a first Sports Day practise with Mr Rigg today.  They really enjoyed all of the races and the value of perseverance way displayed by many.

In Design and Technology, the children have been thinking about useful materials to use to create their own African instrument. Taking into account sound, pitch and appearance. As always, the children have enjoyed their arithmetic session, they love nothing more than seeing their improved scores. Hard work pays off!  Well done class 4.

KS1 and LKS2 footballers It was a great pleasure to take 14 players form class 3 and 2 to 'Fir Ends' school on Thursday afternoon to play some friendly football matches. The players were praised for their sportsmanship, and it was great for them apply their football skills learned into a team again. They were highly successful in their results and a credit to our school.  Well done! Mrs Robinson

Class 1  This week we are celebrating an exciting week of science activities.  The children in Class 1 were so enthused by our activities that many of them have decided that they now want to be scientists or astronauts when they grow up.  The children have also enjoyed preparing cucumber, cheese and pickle on sticks for our Jubilee tea party.  They learned about food hygiene and how to chop food safely and effectively.  They are excited for our tea party this afternoon.

Class 2 Class two have enjoyed doing their Jubilee invites.  I liked English because we made a Jubilee party program. We enjoyed making a collage animal in art today by ripping paper. We have liked our class party times and dancing because we have now finished SATS! We liked doing the science with David in the hall and all of the other Science. I liked making rain gauges in Geography and watching the weather this week.

Class 3 In class 3 we have been doing lots in science week, including space height, which increases by 3%, bionic hands with muscles, tendons and bones. We tasted what an astronaut in space would, whilst holding our nose, and we drew with 2 pairs of gloves on. We did exercises astronaut would have to do.

Class 4 Science week was amazing! We enjoyed working in our house teams to take part in Mission  X and train like an astronaut. Each scientific activity helped us to take steps towards the moon. We loved the Science workshop, with a real scientist and taking part in lots of exciting Science investigations: creating dry ice bubbles, creating pillars with sodium acetate,  freezing flowers using liquid nitrogen, firing nerf guns, creating force using air and creating oxygen in a jar to set off fireworks. 

 We have really enjoyed learning about 'The Queen's Platinum Jubilee' and taking part in Jubilee celebrations. We made blueberry and strawberry jam sandwiches to eat at the tea party!

Class 1  This week the children enjoyed cooking bread in the forest. It was a delicious treat! The children in Reception spent lots of time and effort creating observational drawings of various flowers. They felt like ‘real artists’, using pastels. Their artwork is going to be displayed for all to see as they are very proud of it.

Class 2 This week the year twos have demonstrated maturity and enthusiasm for the reading and maths SATs, we are incredibly proud of their perseverance! During Mastering Number the year ones have investigated odd and even combinations as well as splitting 1 digit number into two parts. The class impressed us with their individual food chain building in Science. Class two are showing a developing knowledge of the weather and seasons and we will continue to monitor local weather patterns using their weather diaries in school.

Class 3 have had a wonderful week. It started with a trip to a Viking settlement; where we learned lots of gruesome ways the Vikings battled, heard some wonderful stories and got to handle some Viking artefacts. Our favourite was the ear spoon! The Vikings really took pride in their appearance. We have also finished some wonderful hero stories. We are very proud of these and the amount of imagination and skill that has gone into this piece of writing. Many of us have enjoyed the Keswick Duathlon on Thursday and took part with enthusiasm!

Class 4  This week in Class 4 we have enjoyed researching African instruments, thinking about sound and pitch, the materials they are made from and sketching diagrams. In PE we have been practising athletic skills, in preparation of going to WHS to take part in a tournament. We have been working hard on our story writing, linked to our class text, adding dialogue to advance the action. Some children enjoyed taking part in the Keswick event and rounders.
