Clearing and gardening in Bowfell

Today, Year 6 did an amazing job clearing out and gardening in Bowfell outdoor area. We weeded plants, painted, cleaned, cleared out the playshed, wheel-barrowed and lots more! Bowfell looks great. Miss Dawson was especially happy that the children weren’t afraid of spiders!

Thank you Year 6 for all of your hard work and thank you to parents for lending your children the gardening equipment.

What a green-fingered lot!


NFU Logo Competition Winner

On Friday, Scafell had a wonderful visit from our local police and the NFU (Country Watch). Cumbria Constabulary and the National Farmers’ Union (NFU) have teamed up to create Country Watch – a scheme that will specifically tackle farm based crime in Cumbria. Because of their fantastic work, they asked all the schools in the area to design a logo for their team.

A few months ago we were told the great news that R.P and E.M were shortlisted, amongst other schools to win the logo design. On Friday, even better news came with E.M being told she had won the logo competition for Cumbria!

E.M received her printed logo and a NFU country watch hoody with her logo on. Very exciting! Look out for Erin’s logo on Facebook NFU and the local country watch team hoodies.


Our Cinderella Summer Performance.

Last week, on Monday afternoon and on Tuesday evening, Skiddaw and Scafell joined together to perform our summer play; Cinderella. With a wonderful cast; amazing props people; and a talented tech team; the play was a brilliant success!

While at Lockerbie Manor – Scafell’s recent residential- we discovered a ceilidh (sounds like Kaylie) dance, which we performed at the ball in the play! Skiddaw class were the cheeky, loveable mice, and before we even received our parts, we were all given scripts to perform at the auditions!

Our backdrops were drawn by the props team and we included lots of sounds (played by our tech team). We had a great audience, who participated in lines such as ‘oh no she isn’t, oh yes she is!’ The outfits were all amazing, and the face paint very convincing, as the ugly sisters had extremely dramatic makeup!

What a wonderful time we all had! A big thank you to Mrs Wadey and Miss Dawson for organising the play itself and to all our families who supported us; helped us learn our lines; organised our amazing costumes and came to watch our Cinderella. Thank you!
