Rounders and Picnic Treat for Scafell

Today, Scafell really enjoyed celebrating their achievements this year, with Miss Dawson, by creating a Lego town (using area and perimeter knowledge), playing rounders and eating too much food at our picnic! It was a lovely chance for us all to relax; to talk about the amazing year that has been (and the exciting year ahead!) and to spend time with friends.

Thank you to all the families who provided our Scafell class with lovely food including: home-made gingerbreads, home-made samosas, doritos, fruit, cookies, pork pies and lots more!

I think we ate too much – especially after Bowfell’s fantastic cake sale! But, what a lovely way to spend a Wednesday afternoon. You deserve it Scafell!

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!

Y6 End of Year Treat 2018

Thank you to everyone involved in giving our Year 6 leavers a wonderful end of year treat today.  We enjoyed trampolines in Morecombe and an ice cream at Happy Mount Park in the rain; before heading back to school to put on our party outfits.  Year 5 Tea Club, with the help of Mrs Mason, Mrs Coker and Mrs Wadey, had made us the most scrumptious meal of pizza and salad followed by an ice cream and strawberry sundae.  Delicious!


Huge thanks also to FOLS for funding our trip to Morecombe.  Lifelong memories of fun with friends at the end of their primary days will stay with them all forever!


Observational Drawings of Chicks

This morning, Nursery, Reception and Year 1 worked really quietly and carefully creating observational drawings of our growing chicks.  It was really tricky because they were constantly moving and fluttering around.  We tried to include some important details in our drawings so that they will look beautiful in a display in our classroom.

Musical Extravaganza

The end of term sparks another chance for the children to demonstrate their musical talents. This term’s musical extravaganza was no exception!

The chicks have arrived!

This week we have enjoyed watching the eggs hatch and observing them have fun!  We have been getting to know them and handling them extremely carefully.

Hockey County Finals

Last Wednesday we went to the HOCKEY COUNTY FINALS!! We lost one game, won two games and drew one game. After that we had a excellent feast for lunch and played more hockey games. We got some special slap bands, drink bottles, pens, special county final t shirts and notebooks. It was a wonderful experience – thank you Mrs Wadey, Mrs Craggs and all the parents who supported Levens. By PBT and IT

Cracking Eggs!

It’s all very exciting in Bowfell this morning as cracks have started to appear in some of our 18 eggs!  It has seemed a very long count down and we have all been incredibly patient, but it seems the waiting is almost over.  Watch this space for more news soon…..
