Sports Ambassadors

Sports Leaders have voted for our first SJB Sport Ambassadors.

Lucy and Shane will lead activities and be the pair to go to when events or lunchtime activities need organising.

This is a role we are confident they will excel at and will be theirs until most of the way through Year 6 when two new ambassadors will be chosen.

Teachers Go Ape

A troop of SJB staff went to Go Ape on Sunday to get a taste of what is on offer for children on school trips.

Admittedly, there were times when this was at the back of our minds as the snow covered platforms and freezing temperatures made the course very challenging.

Mr Maher is going to book for his Year 5s as the children showed at Robinwood that they are up for a challenge.

Filtering in Year 5

Year 5 continued their work on materials and their properties last week.

Having learnt about dissolving, evaporation and reversible change, it was time to test the theory with some handmade filters.

They found separating the water from sand and gravel very easy. They then found getting the water as clean as possible to be much more difficult and had to join up with different groups to do it.

Year 4 Tennis competition

An extremely busy week of competitions continued today with Year 4 Tennis at Ulverston Leisure Centre.

Our 4 players did themselves proud and Mrs Parker was very pleased with their efforts.

Tomorrow we have a football competition and next week an important netball event at UVHS.

It is all GO at the moment especially with cricket, rugby and tennis coaching going on in school.

Something new

Six of our children were given the chance to go to Furness College to try out some sports, which they had never done before, on Wednesday.

The children played volleyball, had a go at curling and even gave table cricket a try.

The group came back very happy and SJB is going to invest in some of the equipment  being used at the competition.

Thanks to Oliver for organising and all the students who helped out.

First Weekend Walk 2018

SJB parents and pupils walked across Greenodd Estuary on Saturday morning.

There was mud, there were puddles and there was no shortage of wet walking boots.

Year 5 and 6 will be doing more of these walks soon. This was our low-level walk to be followed by a mid-level walk to Beacon Tarn and a high-level one around Coniston.

Mr Maher will be in touch with the weather gods to ask for sunshine.

Year 5 Taster Day

Year 5 had their first experience of Secondary School on Friday.

They had a packed day with six lessons to sink their teeth into.

The children looked confident as they went around UVHS and they also showed confidence in the sessions.

It is always nice to see our past pupils at UVHS. Many of them helped our Year 5s with the quiz at lunchtime.

A massive thank you to Mr Butler and UVHS staff for accommodating us once again. The children noticeably went away more at ease with life at secondary school.
