When we came into school on Tuesday 6th February it had snowed during the night. We had a brilliant time playing on the field making snowmen, snowballs and snow angels.

On Tuesday 6th February Zoo Lab came into school with a selection of nocturnal animals from around the world. There was a millipede, cockroaches, a frog, tarantula, snake and a hedgehog.

On Tuesday 23rd January Class 1 braved the cold, wet weather to make mud monsters and animals for Forest Schools. We collected mud, leaves, sticks and grass and in teams created our fabulous beasts! What a lot of very muddy fun we had!

On Friday 12th January 2018, Class 1 had their first Forest Schools session of 2018. We had lots of fun playing outside with the bikes and trikes, hula-hoops, bouncy hoppers, digging in the sand pit and having lots of fun in the mud!

Look at Class 2 all dressed up for the Christmas party! Don’t we look smart! We all had a wonderful time!

On Tuesday 5th December 2018, Reuben and Ariana’s grandparents came into school to talk to us about life in India whilst they were growing up. They brought some food for us to try. These were carrot and cauliflower pakoras. These were delicious!!

Our industrious group of gardeners have been busy clearing the garden ready for the winter! We have also harvested some late lettuce which everyone has enjoyed at dinner time. And of course, it is always fun to look at the variety of wildlife in our garden – earthworms, snails, earwigs and the like!

The whole school designed, made and enjoyed a traditional British picnic on the school. Look at these photos which show the children enjoying a selection of delicious sandwiches, tasty cup cakes, pretty iced biscuits and scrumptious fruit kebabs!

Eight budding bakers took part in our Fairtrade Bake Off competition and created some wonderful cakes and biscuits. Have a look at the work in progress and the delicious finished products.

Classes 1 & 2 have been finding out about some really fun places to visit in Carlisle. We have visited, Carlisle Castle, Gelt Woods, The Sands Centre, Bitts Park, Carlisle United, Houghton Hall, Carlisle Racecourse and Carlisle Cathedral.

We had great fun learning new paper folding skills in the paper craft after school club. The group worked very well together with some of those who finished their crafts quickly helping others.

The whole school consolidated their work on sacred North American animals by spending a day working in teams of mixed age groups. They were tasked with selecting a new animal that could become sacred and putting together a poster with facts they had researched on the internet and in books.
