Lucky Year 6! Everyone had a goodnight sleep and a hearty breakfast, some even had four shredded wheat ready for the day! The sun is shining ready for them as today the different groups will be enjoying archery, canoeing, tree climbing, bouldering and then a night walk this evening. Wednesday already! The night walk was enjoyed by everyone and all slept well again ready for another busy day of team challenges and 'The Pole!'. This evening sees a campfire activity as long as the rain stays away. Thursday: Another good night sleep and serious breakfast ready for a day off site. Everyone is off to the lakes to the Cathedral Caves walk in Little Langdale.

Class 6 inspired by Cezanne!
18 January 2019
Class 6 have been learning about the French artist, Paul Cezanne. They have learnt about the artist himself and studied a range of his paintings. The children then used his work as the inspiration for their own still life drawings. Their sketches were later enhanced using oil pastels and paint. Great work, Class 6!

Preparing the way!
05 December 2018
What a busy couple of days we have had! We had our Key Stage Two Advent service on Monday evening which was a great way to start the season of Advent. All children in Key Stage Two took part to reflect on the importance of making way for God in our hearts as we prepare for the birth of Jesus. Year Six then joined our cluster of schools last night at Saint Gregory's Church to come together as a local community and think about the importance of joining together to spread peace, love, joy and hope.
