Year 1 Art

This week year one have been showing off their creative side. This week we have been focusing on Art. This unit builds on our last two weeks learning where we found out all about plants. Yesterday we sketched and planned what our clay flowers would look like and today we made them using different techniques in the clay. 💐🌸🌹🌺🌷🌻🌼🥀

Lantern Procession

Ulverston lantern procession is on Saturday 25th September.

The reception class have taken on the challenge of producing the SJB lantern for 2021 and it’s slowly starting to take shape.

Anyone from the SJB community is welcome to walk with us. You could help to carry our lantern or bring along your own if you have made one. The theme this year is ‘My Favourite Things’.

Please meet at the auction market at 7pm if you are going to join us. We hope to see you there.

A Big Thank You

Over the summer we have been able invest in a whole new scheme for teaching phonics. There will be new books, flash cards and posters. There is also a website and parents can access resources. We sent the link to some help videos yesterday.

All of this is possible thanks to the incredible efforts of Mr and Mrs Cook, Joseph and Noah and Mr Maher. Their donation to school has allowed to completely revamp our reading scheme. Many thanks!

SJB Cricket Success

A number of SJB pupils enjoyed the end of season celebration at Ulverston Cricket Club yesterday. Many came away with awards for their efforts over the season.

The ‘Rockets’ (girls softball, 8 years and over) did particularly well with Matilda winning the batting award, Tess took the bowling award and Lucy claimed the fielding award. Daisy won the title of most improved player for the Rockets and Mrs Branton took the same award for the ‘Comets’ (ladies softball).

Well done to all the ‘Allstars’ (under 8 boys and girls) and all the ‘Dynamos’ (8-11 boys and girls) who all took home medals.

Ulverston Cricket Club welcomes boys and girls of all ages. Visit the website to find out more:
