Best of Britain

Which do you think is the best of these four steam locomotives, all designed and built here in Britain? Skiddaw class have been researching each locomotive ready to present in our Celebration Assembly and try to persuade pupils to vote for them as the Best of Britain!

Rock Around the Flock

This year’s whole school performance was another magical show for us to enjoy.  Well done everyone on your three brilliant shows last week:

Christmas Fair

Huge thanks to everyone who supported or who helped at our Christmas Fair on 6th December.  It was a wonderful opportunity for friends and families to come together to have fun and raise money in support of our school.

Our year 5 & 6 pupils led their own creative stalls and games. These included: Find the Joker, Lucky Dip, Spin the Wheel, Hook a Duck and The Canonball Challenge.  They raised a staggering £174!


Christmas Musical Extravaganza

On Friday we enjoyed listening to the musical talents of our pupils on the piano, violins and guitars in our Musical Extravaganza performance for parents and children.  Thanks to Mrs Hurley and Mr Duesbury for all their hard work this term supporting our young musicians’ learning and progress.

Pyramid Expo!

Having worked so hard on designing and building pyramids, it would be a shame to not show them off!

As you know by now, Scafell class have been learning about the ancient Egyptians. We’ve recently been looking at pyramids. Having learned what they are for and how they were built, we had a go at designing our own pyramid so that people in the future would remember us as great leaders!

Having set this in part as a homework task, I was stunned to see so many excellent ideas and unique designs. To celebrate this, we turned our classroom into a museum for the afternoon, complete with information cards, and invited Skiddaw along to come and see what we had made.

Check out the gallery and see them for yourselves!

Owls visit Bowfell

Bowfell class enjoyed a visit this morning from some of the beautiful owls from The Owl Sanctuary in Barrow. The children had the opportunity to stroke, handle and ask questions about the owls. They also learnt lots of interesting facts, such a what owls drink – it isn’t what you might think!

Christmas Toddler Taster

Thank you to all those of you who were able to join us for the last Toddler Taster session of 2019 – Christmas crafts. We enjoyed an hour of glittery sticking and making which included animal friendly reindeer food, tissue paper Christmas trees and decorations. We look forward to our next session of cooking in January.
