The school year is now well underway, and it is lovely to be back in school.

Here is brief summary of some of the additional activities and events we have been up to so far!


In light of the sad news of the passing of Queen Elizabeth II, the whole school decided to celebrate her life by creating a timeline of her life in pictures. Each class has produced multimedia artwork depicting significant events and achievements of her life.

We all enjoyed taking part in a day of ‘Wheelchair basketball’ with Nat and Jack.

After school clubs including Book Club, Fun in Class One, Cooking Club, Cartoon Drawing, Sports Club and Netball Club are up and running and well attended.

Classes 1 and 2 have begun Cricket with Frasier and Cass 3 started their 10 weeks of swimming lessons. Class 1 have started their mindfulness and wellbeing course with Mrs Rutherford. All 3 classes have started football and Multi skills with Rowan and Kenny.

We were all very excited when The One Show came to film some of our pupils for their’ Britain in Bloom Finalist’ feature!

The book bus came to school and every child chose a new book each for their classroom.

The Macmillan Coffee morning was a huge Success, raising £408.71 for this worthwhile cause!


Class One impressed parents and families with their class assembly.

Children appeared on Television programme - The One show!

The school was awarded Silver Gilt from Cumbria in Bloom!

Harvest Festival was attended by so many parents and grandparents, with each class delivering a harvest related presentation. Class three talked about the meaning of harvest and retold the Parable of the Sower; Class Two retold the African story of Mama Panya’s Pancakes and Class One retold the story of The Little Red Hen.

Class 3 distributed the ‘Harvest Hampers’ around the village the following day. These hampers are much appreciated and provide children with a real connection to the people who live in our village.

Classes Two and Three had a fabulous day working with artist Andrew Hill, creating Stone Age Coil Pots out of clay.

Mr Harrison took a football squad to take part in the Brampton cluster football tournament at William Howard school. The team represented themselves admirably!

Parents of children in Reception joined us for a school lunch.

Class 3 held their assembly for parents. Using the format of The One show, they presented ‘The Three show’ showcasing everything they do in class Three!

We concluded the month with the Rota Kids’ Halloween Disco.


The new set of after school clubs on offer for this half term include; Homework club, Introduction to cookery for KS1, Advent Calendar club, Football club, KS1 Craft club, KS2 Craft Club, Music club, Chess club and bench Ball club!

Julie Harrison, a visiting artist, worked with class one to produce beautiful pieces of felt work representing a nursery rhyme.

Best wishes,
