We have been very busy with the creation of our new Mud Kitchen area. This is a fantastic area that the children have helped to make and they are enjoying combining lots of different natural resources. We plan to develop this area further by planting herbs with the children which they can then use as ingredients for their inventions!
Reception visited Wyre Estuary Country Park. We walked along the Estuary, noticing sights, sounds and scents, before eating our picnic on the meadow. We listened to a story in the woods and took part in a mini-beast hunt before working together on playground equipment and playing parachute games. We are looking forward to our next visit to Wyre Estuary.
Year 4 enjoyed a Fit to Go Festival on Tuesday. They played football, netball and did athletics with many other schools. Well done year four for representing our school well.
Our Juicing Event was a chance for children to learn how to make tasty and healthy juices with a mix of fruit and vegetables. They sampled 2 different blends and described them as "Delicious", "Tasty" and "Juicy". Jessica explained "They are very nice because they have lots of different flavours".
Y3 have been learning about plants and visited Lowther Gardens to discover more. They learnt more about what plants need to grow by planting shrubs and carrying out gardening tasks with the Park Rangers.
Y4 enjoyed an outdoor enrichment activity exploring and discovering along the trails and in the woodland of Beacon Fell last week.
Year 3 had their first fun and exciting Forest school session exploring the outdoor area. They were introduced to the Park Rangers and took part in some interesting tasks.
Chick eggs have been delivered to our Reception class and the children are excitedly monitoring them for signs of hatching.
Reception enjoyed their first street dance with Sam & Aish from WingZ Theatre Works. This week was focused on developing confidence in movement to music and we learned a simple dance sequence. Everyone tried really hard and we've discovered that Reception have some fantastic dancers!
Year 4 had a great day at Stannah Estuary, from map reading, creating dens, playing on the adventure park and doing the floss.
We have had a busy day mark making in the Nursery 1 garden. Because the weather was so nice, we used paint brushes and coloured water to paint the fence, the blocks and the tunnel, enjoying mixing the water and watching it drip as we painted. Because we were enjoying being out in the sunshine, we had a picnic at snack time, sitting in our den to enjoy our milk and fruit.
The whole school got into the jogging spirit with our 1 mile run in aid of Sport Relief.
