How to come to our School safely

Here is our first two short films on how to arrive at school safely.  There are also signs on display at our main entrance on Church Road to remind you of some of the important things to remember.

Arriving at our main entrance….

Entering our School building….




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. 🙂

Bug Hotels

Across the UK, hotels and Guest Houses are closed for now, but Scafell pupils have been making sure the minibeasts in our gardens are living in luxury in their five-star accommodation! These have been created with materials collected on walks and in the local environment including: sticks, leaves, pebbles, plant pots, bricks, guttering, tubes etc.

Encouraging the right kind of bugs into our gardens helps pollinate flowers and keeps away unwanted pests, like snails too.

Here are some of the fabulous examples they’ve created so far.  Well done Scafell!

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!

Hello from all the Staff!

This week, the staff have been taking photographs of their lives in lockdown to share with you.  We are all missing you so much and can’t wait to be in school soon.  Take a look at some of the things we’ve been up to…..
