The January Challenge 2023
We enjoyed a visit from Claire from the library today. We completed some activities from the January Challenge Champions pack.
We thought about; what we are thankful for and what we see on the way to school. We also drew our favourite piece of clothing and asked our parents what their favourite childhood memory of clothing was.
It was a lovely session!

Theatre by the Lake, Keswick
We had a lovely time watching 'The Borrowers,' at Theatre by the Lake, Keswick on Tuesday. The actors and the set were amazing. It was great fun clapping along with the music and trying to catch the bubbles.
Christingle Carol Concert - Monday 12th January, 2022
We had our carol concert in church on Monday evening. Class 3 led the carols and the scripture readings.
Sophie was our wonderful 'live' Christingle.
Class 4 came and sang 'Hark the Herald Angels Sing' for us.
The finale was Class 3 signing in Makaton the carol, 'White Christmas' It was truly a magical evening!

Road Safety Week
We enjoyed a visit from PCSO Norman yesterday, who talked about Road Safety. We found out lots of useful information about how to cross the road and how to behave in a vehicle.
We did a couple of activities in the classroom after too!
Science Week in Class 3
FORCES AND MAGNETS
We are focusing on Forces and Magnets. Today we found out that forces involve a ‘push’ or ‘pull’
We carried out a fair test to compare the movement of vehicles on different surfaces. What a great session!
Visit to Penrith Library - Helen Haraldsen (Author) Workshop
We went to Penrith Library on Friday 7th October, to meet Helen Haraldsen, who we have been working with since we won her lovely book 'A Tale of Two Shoes'
Helen talked about her book and then we wrote some free verse poetry or prose based on the environment and the two characters out of the book, Shane and Sheila shoe.
The children also had the opportunity to purchase Helen's books and were presented with them on the day.
It was a lovely experience to meet a 'real author' We are still continuing English lessons based on this book, which we have found very exciting.
Thanks to Claire and Vicky at the library for their continuing support!

National Poetry Day
Class 3 enjoyed National Poetry Day. We listened to lots of poem to get us into the mood. We also read some 'Pocket Poems' outside with a partner. They were written by famous poets like, R.L. Stevenson and Enid Blyton.
We then wrote our own descriptive poetry about Autumn using the format; adjective, noun, verb and adverb. It was tricky but we got there, with lots of different versions!
Class 3 are Winners
Claire from Penrith Library entered Class 3 into a competition over the summer holidays, which we fortunately won!
We are going to have the opportunity to work with a local author, Helen Haraldsen and focus on her book, 'A Tale of Two Shoes'
We even got a free copy of the book presented to us from Claire at the library.
What exciting news!
These are all the letters, to date, that have been sent out:
