We’ve had an amazing opportunity to sing at the Japenese Embassy as part of a special event celebrating the Dalemain Marmalade festival’s connections with Japan and the launch of Japan’s own Marmalade festival awards. We’ve also made the most of being in London and experienced many things in our brief visit, including the London Underground, Buckingham Place, The Ritz and the Natural History museum! Enjoy a selection of our photos from the past two days.
Keswick Mountain Festival - Schools' Triathlon
Thursday 7th June 2018
A fantastic time was had by all this morning as the children took part in the annual triathlon, hosted by the Keswick Mountain Festival.
The weather was perfect and everyone gave 100% effort; you should be proud of yourselves!
Wednesday 23rd May - Share a Pencil Day.
The school spent the afternoon having fun and working together for Share a Pencil Day. They explored the reasons why millions of children globally are missing out on an education, and why that matters. Some classes were given tasks and challenges to complete with limited resources, such as one pencil per group and fewer chairs in the classroom! Key Stage 1 loved working together to complete a global themed treasure hunt. At the end of the afternoon, children did a #pencil selfie to show what they appreciate about their own school.

Science week has been brilliant with some fantastic wow moments to inspire the children. Throughout the week, they conducted investigations related to sound, light, electricity and materials. Then, using their newly found scientific knowledge, each class created something to enhance a rock band’s performance on Friday.
To celebrate the end of the 'Relationships' Jigsaw piece in our PSHE topic, Year 3 and 4 made these colourful streamer flags.
Each streamer represents the appreciation we have for a special person in our lives.
