Kwik Cricket at Dallam

This afternoon our Kwik Crick team played extremely well at the final event of the Dallam Primary Cup Challenge.  At the start of this event, Levens School were in first place following amazing performances at the Netball and Hockey competitions, but today’s challenge was by far the greatest.  Drawn against two very competent teams – who went on to achieve first and second place overall – we secured many points, but not enough to keep us at the top of the leader board.

Our children showed determination to the end with some superb fielding – including dramatic catches and fast, accurate bowling  – and many points scored with our competent batting!  Overall it was a good performance and all were fantastic ambassadors for our school.

Well done Levens.

Stay Safe – Speak Out!

Yesterday, the NSPCC visited school to deliver  assemblies to our key stage 1 and 2 children. Their message was very clear!  We all have a right to stay safe but if we feel uncomfortable, unhappy or in danger there are things we can and should do: tell a trusted adult or phone Childline on 0800 11 11.

Children in year 5 and 6 learnt even more in their workshop that followed. This was all about what we should do in a range of situations.  Our discussions covered a range of issues affecting children all over the U.K. including; neglect, emotional abuse, bullying, cyber-bullying and sexual abuse.  Scafell Class will be learning more about how to stay safe when sharing on-line throughout this term.

There is lots of information for children and parents on the NSPCC website: www.nspcc.org.uk 

Left or Right? Hand or Foot?

We have been making sure we know our left from our right. The children have been taking turns to give instructions to each other. We had lots of fun playing Twister!

We have some very bendy children in Bowfell Class!
