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!
On 15th July, Vicki prepared a special lunch chosen by the year 6 leavers. The chocolate fountain went down very well!
Seven enthusiastic bakers took part in our Fantastic Fairtrade Bake off on Tuesday 4th July at William Howard School. What a highly organised group of chefs they were with some absolutely brilliant bakes.
The whole school enjoyed a wonderful day of fitness on Monday with a round robin of sports and games, including rounders, tag rugby, cricket, bikes and trikes and many more.
Class One had a fantastic morning at the Queen’s Hall in Hexham watching Dinosaur World Live! It was amazing, we joined their intrepid explorer across uncharted territories to discover a pre-historic world of astonishing (and remarkably life-like) dinosaurs.
