Christmas Visit to South Lakes Safari Zoo

We had a wonderful and magical day at the zoo. We fed the giraffes and penguins and went for a ride on 'The Santa Express Train'. We also had hot chocolate and cookies with Mrs Claus in her kitchen and then, best of all, we got to meet Father Christmas himself!

We went on a visit to Old Hall Farm to support our work in History. We looked at old forms of transport and learned all about traditional farming methods.

We had a morning of Team Building activities with instructors from Windermere Outdoor Adventure. It was great fun. We played lots of games that involved team work. We also made shelters in the woods. Luckily we found out that our shelters were waterproof, when buckets of water were thrown over them with us inside!

Visit to Conishead Priory and Buddhist Temple

The Year Two children visited the residents of Alexandra Court as part of an 'Inter Generational' Sewing project with our artist Nicki Smith. The children talked to the residents about their memories of being 7 years of age and the type of activities that they used to enjoy doing. These memories will form part of a whole school quilt. A great time was had by all as I'm sure the photographs below will show.

We had a wonderful time on our Bush Craft Activity Day. The children took part in lots of workshops making charcoal, chopsticks and beads from wood. They also made their own small fires using flints. Thank you to the PTA for organising such a fantastic day for us. Take a look at the photographs below.

We went to Brockhole for a Science workshop run by Cumbria Wildlife Trust. The workshop was about habitats and was called 'Badger Needs a Home'. We explored the grounds, took part in different activities and performed in a puppet show. We had a wonderful day in the Spring sunshine.

We had a visit from Tommy the World War One soldier from Tullie House. He told us all about his life in the army during the war and brought lots of exciting things for us to look at. We even got to dress up. It was great fun and we learnt lots too!

Lakeland Maize Maze Farm Trip

Trip to Lakeland Maize Maze Farm

Here is what some of our children had to say about our trip.

We went to Lakeland Maize Farm. First my group went to the Go-Karts, the trampoline, the bouncy slide and the sand pit. Next we went to the soft play area. I went on the climbing wall. Then we went in the Hay Bale Maze. Then we had lunch. Afterwards we all went on the Tractor Ride. Also we made a picture frame. Last of all we met the pets. I held a Guinea Pig called Splodge.

By Arthur 

When we got there the staff met us in the Play Area. We split into groups of nine. The group I was in went into the Soft Play Area first, whilst the other group played on the Go-Karts and the Bouncy Slide. After lunch we had a tractor ride. It was fun. After the tractor ride I got to stroke a chinchilla. My favourite thing was the Pet's Corner. It was fun.

By Liam

The first thing that we did was to play in the soft play area. Next we went to play in the Hay Bale Maze. Then we had so much fun on the Go-Karts going really fast. I had a bounce on the trampoline and I buried myself in the sand. After lunch we went on a tractor ride. Then we went to meet the pets. I met a rabbit called William. He was really soft and black and white. I also held a guinea pig. We played games on the climbing wall and I won.

By Shamus

We held some rabbits and some gerbils. Then we went on a tractor ride and saw some cows. I played on the Go-Karts and the bouncy slide. We did some art and craft and made a picture frame.

By Zara

We got to hold guinea pigs and I saw some tiny eggs. After lunch I won a race. I loved the tractor ride. Then we went in the soft play area. It was rainy but it didn't spoil our fun.

Walk to Brantfell with Class One

We took part in a Beebot workshop. A lady called Jo came into our class and each one of us had our own Beebot to use. We learned how to program the Beebot and we were able to follow challenges to navigate our Beebots around different floor maps. We had a fantastic time!

We visited Holehird Gardens to support our Science topic of 'Plants and Trees'. We had great fun doing a Senses Trail around the Walled Garden. The Alpine House was full of beautiful flowers and we saw some amazing trees. The gardens looked wonderful.

We have planted some daffodil bulbs to grow 'Pots of Care' to raise money for the Marie Curie Cancer Care.


We have a Forest School Session every Tuesday afternoon. We have so much fun and we love being outdoors and exploring our wood.

Our pencils have been very active as we have entered a short story writing competition. The winners of the competition will have their stories published by 'Young Writers'. We have been writing adventure stories about Space, Dinosaurs, Time Travel and Under the Sea. Good luck to everyone that entered!
