Rugby Final at Craven Park

Our 10 rugby players were superb at the School Games Tag Rugby tournament on Friday. They played at the home of Barrow rugby and won 5 of their games (all of them 3-1) to reach the semi-final and then the final.

They were beaten by a superb side in the final 5-2 but an enormous congratulations to them. We could not be more proud of the example you are setting to our younger pupils at SJB.

So ends a very busy week of sport at SJB. Another busy one starts the moment we get back after half term with cricket on the agenda.

Many thanks to our parent helpers who make these trips possible. You know who you are!

STEM visit to Siemens

Year 3 have been learning about Forces and Magnets in science. We were delighted to be able to visit Siemens Subsea Excellence in Ulverston and apply some of our learning. There were three hands-on activities and a tour of the factory. It certainly made our children think about how science exists outside the classroom. We have some keen engineers in our midst now. Thank you to everyone at Siemens who supported our visit and also to the adult volunteers who helped us safely up the road.

Year 5 art afternoon

There was too much to put on the morning edition.

Lots of painting sheep this afternoon using our skills from this morning.

Stippling was the painting skill used by the children.

We must thank John for his time and effort with Year 5. This will be a great project next year.

Art morning in Year 5

Year 5 made heads for their sheep this morning and then experimented with colour in order to accurately paint them in the afternoon.

It’s messy but it is the best kind learning!
