Last Wednesday, all of Year 4 and 10 pupils in Year 5 went to Manchester.
In the morning, Year 4 went to The Lowry and ate lunch close to Media City. Year 5 headed to the Science Museum and managed to visit all 4 buildings. A big favourite was the experiment zone.
After that, we all went to the theatre to watch Matilda. The children were extremely well behaved in the theatre and were a credit to themselves.
We were delighted to see some many parents this afternoon. Thank you for your support. The children performed really well and it was great that everyone took part. We would also like to congratulate our finalists in the individual poetry competition. The Ernie Richardson shield this year goes to a Year 6 student however the judges were impressed by the standards across the whole school.
Year 4 were lucky enough to spend a day learning about Buddhism at the Manjushri Kadampa Temple in Ulverston. The children walked the 2 miles from school to the centre and were enthusiastic and smiling the whole way. We arrived around 10 o’clock where we were shown into the main building and then taken through to the temple. The children were wonderful and showed great respect throughout. A personal highlight was the oscar-worthy acting involved when telling the story of Prince Siddhārtha. After an interesting hour in the temple, we ate our lunch and headed into the woods to explore.
We would like to say a huge SJB ‘THANK YOU’ to everyone who helped make our day some special.
Mrs Barker took some children to her allotment to collect some pumpkins to make a pie. Along the way they found lots more bounty – cooking apples, onions, carrots, sweet chestnuts, snail shells and slugs. They brought them back to school to show the rest of the Reception Class. Mrs Barker is looking forward to sharing her allotment with lots of other children, giving them the chance to see how it changes over the seasons.
Thanks Mrs Barker!
