News & Events

Class 1 What a busy week in Class 1! This week we welcomed lots of new starters into our class. We were very proud of the children for helping them to settle in. They were very kind, patient and friendly. 

The children had a fantastic Sports Day on Monday and a wonderful trip to Silloth on Wednesday. They visited Silloth RNLI to find out about the important job they do to keep people safe. The splash park and the train were great fun and the ice-creams went down a treat!

Class 2 The lions liked sports day, sharing their news, answering questions about a story in PSHE and lunchtime.   The giraffes all enjoyed sports day the most. The meerkats enjoyed watching the Lion King, loved having a special golden time, learning about body parts and doing sports day. The cheetahs liked watching the play, writing acrostic poems for year 6 also P.S.H.E. and the wolves enjoyed the play too.


Class 3 are having a great time at Robin Wood. We look forward to hearing more from them when they get back.

Class 4

Children's comments:

We all enjoyed performing 'The Lion King' in front of the whole school and our families, our hard work paid off. 

I enjoyed cheering on my team during Sports Day, it was nice and hot weather; we got ice lollies at the end.

I enjoyed learning about 'the classroom' in French because we played a fun game to learn new words.

I enjoyed computing because we got time to practise programming and create our own apps.

I enjoyed the year 6 leavers transition session with Rachel from NISCU, we talked about moving on to our new secondary schools.

Class 1 have been enjoying watching their sunflowers and tadpoles grow!  Nursery have had a super Sports Day and Reception cheered them on while parents came and spectated. We enjoyed our ‘virtual’ visit from SCARF too.

Class 2 enthusiastically joined in with their SCARF 'Feelings' Zoom, especially enjoying creating magic by throwing their feelings into a feelings bucket.  In our house groups we worked collaboratively to create a tie dye pattern by using elastic bands and squeezy dye bottles, we are really impressed with the results.  In Science we have learned about healthy eating and how to build a balanced meal.  The class will miss Mrs Wealands who finishes her placement today and love the flock display she has created with our felt sheep. 

Class 3 have worked super hard this week to get our final piece of writing finished.  We have been writing diary entries about a refugee. This has been tough, but it has made us think about others in worse situations than ourselves.  We have also had a final push on finishing our geography unit and created some wonderful double page spreads comparing London to another European city.  We continue to enjoy our swimming lesson. We have also had fun in Science and creating classification keys and inventing a new bird species.  Our highlights are coming up next week when we have sport's day and Robinwood.  

Class 4 have enjoyed practising for the rounders tournament at WHS, they competed brilliantly. Year 6 have been taking part in 'Transition Days' at their secondary schools which they have really enjoyed and this has helped them to feel more confident with moving on to their next chapter. We had a visit from David Gardiner, who worked for 'Water Aid,' we found out how they were helping people in Africa to access clean water and sanitation. In PSHE, we took part in a virtual lesson about mental health and wellbeing. The children shared lots of good ideas to keep their mind-set positive. Year 6 received their SATS results this week, they should all be very proud of themselves! 

Class 1  This week we are celebrating the perseverance we found when engaged in our weaving projects. The value of friendship has been very much evident in class one this week too through our large scale collaborative constructions. The children have worked well together to create and modify. 

Class 2 from the children
We are excited about learning about our bodies in Science.
It was really good fun going on the bus to William Howard for mini sports games.
I have enjoyed learning about Meerkats and making a poster.

Class 3 from the children:

We have also enjoyed paining what it would look like through a refugees journey.  We enjoyed searching up facts about Ukraine refugees and their journey.

Class 4 have had a very busy week practising our end of year production 'The Lion King'. They are putting in a great effort and their singing is sounding amazing!  Some children took part in the swimming gala and represented school brilliantly. We have started our new African Art and Design topic, researching   'Tingatinga' style paintings.  The children are planning and creating their own original artwork; I cannot wait to see their final pieces. We welcomed a new pupil into class 4 this week and everyone has been so helpful and kind. Have a lovely weekend Class 4!

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.
