We all enjoyed our recent Move up day, when our new starters joined us. Year 6 had fun at an evening residential experience with Year 6 children from St Michael’s CE School, Bothel at Skiddaw House. Our Year 6 children also took part in a farewell forest experience with Mrs Lee. They played some of their favourite games including eagle eye and hide and seek. They also completed a scavenger hunt and cooked tea on the camp fire. To finish they took part in a stream walk and played water games.
Year 2 and 3 have also enjoyed their sessions in the forest. They have built nests, hunted for eggs, painted blue bell pictures and hammered leaves and flowers to make prints. They have also made musical instruments using a bill hook and mallet, explored the stream, played on the rope swing, climbed and slid down the river bank and played lots of games.
Our Infant children had fun on their school trip to Walby farm and our Juniors enjoyed their Viking experience at the Beacon, Whitehaven.
WPC Irving came to talk to our Juniors about E Safety and reminded us about keeping ourselves safe when playing our computer games.
Everyone participated well in our annual Sports Day and the stalls organised and run by Year 6 children raised £96.00. Our Junior children thoroughly enjoyed their tag rugby sessions led by Ross Jefferson from the Allerdale Sports Partnership.
Year 6 children spent the afternoon at St Michael’s CE School, Bothel, taking part in a transition workshop, led by the Niscu Puppet team.
Year 5 and 6 children led a global awareness campaign, presenting their projects to the rest of the school. They were mature and responsible and everyone found the workshop interesting and informative.
Our Junior children enjoyed their residential trip to Kingswood, Hexham where they took part in a range of activities including fencing, climbing, aeroballing, lazer, giant treetop swings, obstacle courses, naturewalk, mini Olympics and a trail of mystery.
We would like to say a huge congratulations to Sharon, our school administrator who has just won the Cumbria heroes special judges award and to say a massive thank you to her for all she does in the community of Plumbland.
We would also like to thank our FOPs team for all the fundraising activities they have arranged this year and for giving up their time for our school.
Finally we say a sad farewell to our Year 6 children: Emily, Ellen, Saffron, Jack, Oliver, Fraser, Gerard, James, and Regan. We will miss them but wish them a happy future in their chosen Secondary schools.
