Rainbow Poems

Skiddaw class looked at a poem My Colours by Colin West. Dougal, Cerys and Hettie have sent in their own fantastic versions. We hope you may be inspired to create your own by reading, watching and listening to them here…

Skiddaw News Round Up

Here is a selection of more wonderful work that has been coming to me via photos and video. Thank you to everyone who has sent me information and photos. Keep them coming, you are all amazing! Mrs W

Food and Cooking – Some pupils took part in the NFU live lesson and others have created dishes to celebrate Easter and VE Day. Talia and Miley’s Aunt and Uncle from Devon helped them create their bread and butter VE Day inspired pudding via zoom and they dressed up too!

Science – Here are lots of busy pupils working outdoors on our science theme of Living Things. Some lovely creations using bark rubbings as well as categorising animals and flowering and non-flowering plants. Joseph has kindly been looking after our potatoes and you can see they are thriving in his care – thank you Joseph!

Other photos of pupils hard at work creating sentences, making cards to thank those wonderful workers, having success with Numbots and creating marble runs. What a super selection – I’m really proud of the creativity, resilience and perseverance you are showing every week. ­čÖé

The Levens School Song

Alfie and Rebecca Jones have been very busy with dad, Darren, creating and performing this song all about Levens School! All the staff have listened to it and many were brought to tears hearing it. The giggles are just gorgeous! Thank you so much to the Jones Family for sharing their wonderful talents. Listening to this is guaranteed to brighten your day.

We’ve included the words here in the hope that many of you will sing along and we would like to set a music challenge to you all. Please learn the song so that we can sing it together for real when we are back in school in the not too distant future.

Happy Singing!

Great to see the range of activities keeping you all busy at home. Do take a look and see if there is something to inspire you to get creative and spread a smile in your world. Can you spot the rockets, alphabet hunts and rock collections, the model water cycle and thank you cards/letters/hands, ideas for rainbows (see this week’s suggestions for a twist on this) and crowns fit for King Alfred the Great!

I haven’t forgotten the potatoes we planted. Thanks to Joseph for looking after the regional variety and I have the rocket ones at home. They are both looking good but I think Joseph’s plants are bigger!

Lots of interesting ideas here for you to look at and be inspired by. Your daffodil pictures in pastel, paint and crayon are beautiful as well as some history to get you thinking. Thank you to everyone who sent me photos of your work, I’m loving seeing what you are keeping busy with and hope you enjoy this selection.
