On Thursday 6th February, 12 children from Class 3 took part in the Primary schools bouldering competition at Eden Rock, Carlisle. It was a great event and all the children climbed 20 different walls over 5 zones. The challenge was to get to the last hold on each climb, and place both hands on the hold for 3 seconds. All the children were brilliant competitors.
On Friday 24th January, a pirate treasure map appeared in Class 1.
We had to put on our wellies and coats and follow the map. We used our direction skills we had been learning in Maths to go forwards, backwards, right turn and left turn. We had to start at the big tree, go through the willow tunnel, go over the shark infested waters and climb over the pirate ship.
Then we had to walk the plank, jump on the stepping stones and then we found the treasure! We found sweeties in the treasure chest! They were yummy!
During the week commencing January 20th Class One looked at the traditional story of Chinese New Year and how each year got their name.
We made a range of different crafts, we each made a lantern and a fan. We created a whole Class Dragon for the display, which is in the school hall. We enjoyed tasting a range of different Chinese foods. We had Prawn Crackers, Spring Rolls, Noodles, Egg Fried Rice, Pork and Sweetcorn Dumplings and Pork and Celery Dumplings kindly made by Mrs Roddam.
The Class enjoyed tasting the different things. Our final activity was playing a game with chopsticks, we had to see if we could pick up cubes with the chopsticks and move them to the other table without using our hands.
Look at our wonderful advent calendars!
These 6 children have made their own advent calendars during after school club, we had 6 weeks to make our own. We had lots of fun, made lots of mess, sang Christmas songs even in November and had a few occasional treats!
We used cardboard, shoe boxes, toilet roll tubes, tissue paper, glitter and other decorative things. They each chose their own individual design from a range of different ideas. What a fun time we had!
On Monday 11th and Tuesday 12th November, the whole school took part in 2 full days to look at different things to do with World War 2.
We started off by having a whole school assembly and looked at any artefacts that people brought in. We then all made a wooden cross and took these to place around the memorial cross at Church and we all took part in the minutes silence. We then came back to school and each child made their own poppy to be placed on the display. Each class looked into different things relating to the war.
On Tuesday Greg came into school to teach the children some World War 2 songs which we then performed for a group of parents.
On Tuesday 26th November, the whole school took part in the annual Christmas Cake Bake.
We creamed butter and sugar together, added flour, eggs, mixed spices, and dried fruit and we stirred the mixture making a wish on our last stir. Then we put the mixture into baking trays to bake.
At the end of term we will decorate our own slice to take home.
Class 3 had a fantastic day at Tullie House Museum!
All the children enjoyed learning more about the Stone Age, handling Stone Age artefacts, and exploring the rest of the museum.
Four members of our Fairtrade committee were lucky enough to be invited to a civic reception with the mayor to celebrate 25 years of Fairtrade and the renewal of Carlisle’s status as a Fairtrade city. Look at all that gold!
On Monday 23rd September, Nat came into school to teach us how to play Wheelchair Basketball. The whole school went out in little groups and had lots of fun!
On Tuesday 9th July Class 1 and Class 2 set off for Rockcliffe, Dumfriesshire. The bus was full of very over excited children and staff!
