Class 1

We are celebrating a fantastic first Forest School session which included s’mores, hot chocolate, fun games and an exciting bus journey! 

Class 2

We loved going to the woods and cooking our own dinner.  We like the school dinners too.  Gymnastics was fun and Kym showed us how to do star, straight and tuck positions.  Andy showed us some actions to his poems.

Class 3 

Have had a busy and productive week - we have enjoyed our Roald Dahl Day, we met poet Andy Tooze and created some wonderful, inspiring poems plus we had a Zoom call with an author Lucy Noguera.

Class 4

Class 4 have had a very productive week. Our highlight was a very special visit from a 'real poet' Andy Tooze. Everyone really engaged in the workshop, producing some fantastic poetry, and performing in front of an audience. What amazing talent class 4! 

We also had our first dance session with Abbie from Carlisle Dance Academy. The children really enjoyed creating a rainforest dance routine. 

Class 1 are celebrating...an excellent start to the school year! All of the children have settled in really well.  They are becoming familiar with our routines and have enjoyed getting to know one another/reuniting with friends.

Class 2 have further developed their routines this week and demonstrated resilience in their first full week back .  The pupils have especially enjoyed meeting 'Dizzy' our class dragon and relish story time about him.  Sadly, Dizzy was lonely last weekend so he will be spending his weekends with one of our families each week! The class have been writing some super sentences about the different areas in our school and have shown more writing stamina as the weeks progressed.

Class 3  - This week we have enjoyed starting our Geography topic about the UK.  We have been looking at maps and finding places.  We have also enjoyed listening to a new book called 'Swop, the Satsuma-sized Secret' and getting ready to meet the author by thinking of questions to ask her.

Everyone in Class 4 have settled in well.  We have been busy sharing Brilliant Beginnings, finding out about rainforests. The children have written some fantastic rainforest descriptions using their senses. Some children have led school worship this week, thinking about ‘thankfulness’.

Well done to our children who started their Brilliant Beginnings during the holidays.  Our Class topics this term are:

Class 1 – Who am I?

Class 2 – Dungeons and Dragons

Class 3 – the United Kingdom

Class 4 – Rainforests

Class 1 have enjoyed their first visit to the woods and getting there on a bus!  We are really proud of our Reception children, who led a collective worship on friendship. In preparation they were able to talk about how to be a good friend and they confidently spoke to the rest of the school.

Class 2 - this week we have celebrated 'World Oceans Day', joining in with a live 'Rock Pool Ramble and Fish Feed' lesson from the 'National Marine Aquarium' , we have also learned the names of the five oceans and seven continents by creating a 3-d models of the world.  On Wednesday, the pupils relished meeting 'Harold' the giraffe, the main character in our PSHE lessons, whilst the highlight were the stars which were projected onto classes ceiling as we thought about the importance of sleep during 'Our Wonderful Body' session.

Class 3 had a brilliant visit from the Life Bus, learning all about the brain. Everyone was really engaged and it was wonderful having an outside visitor into our class. 

We began our new art topic with some amazing presentation of the background of Roman mosaics in their books, investigating mosaic patterns and features.

This week, Class 4 have been really excited about starting our end of year production. They have impressed, with their dedication to learn lines and song lyrics.

We have been looking at ancient Greek artefacts and trying to guess what the artefact was and its use.

We had a visit from the Life Bus, learning about making good choices to keep our bodies healthy. The children demonstrated excellent knowledge and understanding about these issues. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the session!

Class 1 have been looking at weight in Maths and have been exploring ‘lighter’ and ‘heavier’ objects.  In RE we have been looking at ‘our wonderful world’ – what makes us special and unique followed by painting some portraits.

Class 2 are relishing learning new computing skills such as typing, inserting images, and amending text as part of their computing this term.  During PSHE, we are talking about feelings and the children came up with sensible strategies to help 'Stretch Armstrong' deal with his tricky feelings. 

Class 3 have been working hard to write and edit their newspaper articles about Pompeii, we are very proud of their efforts. They have also enjoyed sketching some Roman aqueducts in preparation for their D&T project next week. 

A few comments from our Class 4 pupils

‘I have enjoyed investigating circuits in Science and trying components that we haven’t used before like buzzers and motors.  I enjoyed learning about democracy in Ancient Greece and comparing it to modern day democracy’  

'This week, I really enjoyed science (this unit is about electricity) because I have had a good experience with circuits in the past and I really am fond of creating things such as circuits using different components.  Also in maths, we have been learning about scale factors, which is a really interesting and enjoyable unit to learn about’
