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!
