A very special Good Work Assembly and Farewell Mrs Duckworth (Superwoman!)

On Friday the 25th May, we had a very special Good Work Assembly. We saw brilliant sporting achievements, Roman Soldiers in fantastic hand-made helmets (Skiddaw), amazing story books written by our budding authors (Bowfell), an amazing rendition of ‘We’re going on a bear hunt’ (Hellvelyn) and wonderful biomes, created in Science/DT (Scafell).

Although our Good Work assemblies are always a happy and positive occassion, many of us also felt sad as we said farewell to Mrs Duckworth. Mrs Duckworth has been an amazing member of our Levens Team, with her wonderful smile, contagious laugh and her obvious care and love for the children she teaches. All of the staff and children will miss you a lot Mrs D – and your amazing baking! Thank you from all of us here at Levens and thank you to all the parents who attended our special assembly.

Happy Holidays everyone!

Rounders Tournament at Dallam

On Wednesday 23rd May, Scafell class and some of Skiddaw travelled to Dallam for a Rounders tournament; making up 2 teams. Firstly, we had to play each other and team A beat team B by 2 rounders. Group A included: MW, MH, TW, FH, AD, OWil, TJ, JB and ODob. In group B there was: OR, ST, OWood, AK, ODav, CH, SD, KH and BH. We both played two more matches: Group A winning them all and Group B winning 1 and losing 2. Group A came 2nd which is a massive achievement and group B came 12th overall. It was a very hot day but we had an amazing time! Thank you to Miss Dawson and all of the parents who transported and supported us!

Country Watch Competition NFU

Well done to our two fantastic winners in Scafell, Rosie and Erin, for their success in the Country Watch Competition NFU South Lake & Dales, All of Scafell created amazing logo designs for the competition which supports the police in keeping our local areas safe, including protecting farms around the area. We had a lovely visit from a local officer who came to congratulate our two winners in Scafell, on the last day of term. Our two finalists both won a voucher and will be entered into the final; along with the finalists from other participating schools. The overall winner will be selected by Cumbria Police shortly! Well done both!

Experience Pentecost 2018

On Thursday 24th May, the children (and staff) thoroughly enjoyed their morning in church, experiencing and learning more about Pentecost. The children listened extremely well to all the stories and discussions and enjoyed creating peace doves, ‘prayer’ bunting and lighting the candles. Thank you to all who ran and participated in the event, including: the Open The Book team, Pam and all the members of St John’s Church. Also, a big thank you to Mr Wadey for the photos and Mr Hunt for walking both groups down to church.
