With all the points from our sports events in, we can reveal that Green Team have won the house competition by just 2 points.
Yellow team were in the lead after KS1 had their sports day. Green team took the lead by a narrow 6 points after KS2 had their first sports day. They just held on against the Blues in an extremely close contest after KS2 day two.
If just one result had gone a different way we would have had a completely different result. This shows how important every child is to a team.
After earning our GOLD AWARD this term, we will be pushing for more sport in school next year.
We have been extremely busy in Reception recently!
Today we went on a trip into town to visit the local shops and café. We looked at the different types of shops around the town and saw what each of them sold. We found a bakers, butchers, florist, greengrocers, supermarket and many many more. We bought some ingredients for our afternoon snack. We decided we would like toast and fruit for snack. We had to choose which ingredients we needed and then buy it. It was very exciting!
We were then very lucky to visit one of the town’s cafes and order our own drink and food. We could either have toast or a teacake and milk or squash to drink. The teachers even got a cup of tea!!
We have had a fantastic morning out and it was a brilliant opportunity for the children to experience using real life skills.
We would like to say a massive THANK YOU to Mike and Amy at Poppies Café for their time and generosity. The children LOVED it.
Year 5 went to Haverthwaite Station on Tuesday evening for their end of year party. They played on the new park for 40 minutes before boarding the steam train and going to Lakeside and back.
Mr Maher fired the engine with Graham the driver while the children ate their party food. We had to hurry back as 7 children were off to Barrow for their Future Leaders meeting.
Year 5 would like to thank Garry, Ali, Kim and Ms Campbell for joining us on the train. This event could not have happened without you working in your spare time.
Year 5 and 6 played against Low Furness and Pennybridge today in some of our final cricket games of the school year. SJB Team 2, all of whom are in Year 6, won all their games including against SJB Team 1.
Team 1, a much younger side, lost by only 1 run against Team 2 and it is fair to say that tensions were running high in the game. Team 1 scored 248 and Team 2 had absolutely no answer to that until Braden hit 16 runs off 3 balls. The final ball, where only 2 runs were needed to win the match, was a WIDE which should have meant Team 2 won but the batsman then hit his wicket accidentally and we did not count it.
A SUPER OVER followed where each team put forward their two best batsman to face Mr Mr Maher for 6 balls. Team 2, with Braden and Isaac, scored 9 runs. Team 1, with Jack and Ellis batting, had a very tense 3 minutes of play where they scored…8 RUNS.
Credit to Team 1 who showed a lot of character in the final game and gave a far more experienced side the fight of their cricketing lives.
Thanks to Mr Jackson, Mr Carrick and their teams for joining us. We always enjoy playing you. We must do that again!
We had a very exciting day yesterday in Reception as it was finally our school trip! We got on the coach from school and headed to our first stop which was the Lakeside and Haverthwaite railway. In Reception we have some children who LOVE trains and as we pulled up at the station they were bouncing with excitement! First things first we had to test out their playground and see what we thought- the children had a whale of a time! We had a brilliant trip on the train and our favourite part was going through the very dark tunnel.
After the train we headed off to Sizergh Castle to go on their Wild Trail. It was a very hot afternoon and we were glad to get into the shade of the trees. The Wild Trail was amazing. There were logs to climb on, wooden stepping stones, wooden insects hiding the trees, clues to find, a wooden bridge and even a rope swing! The children couldn’t believe that they got to explore all of the obstacles and they thoroughly enjoyed themselves!
Before we knew it, it was time to get back on the coach and head back to school. We were all very tired from having so much fun and some of us even had a little snooze on the trip back home.
We would like to say a massive THANK YOU to the Railway staff and the staff at Sizergh castle for making our trip so enjoyable.
A big thank you to Owain and Shane from Ulverston CC who came into school on Friday morning to practice drills and games with our KS2 children.
All stars and softball cricket takes place every Friday from 4.30 to 5.30 at the cricket pith by the Leisure Centre. All juniors are welcome to come along and have a go.
We look forward to using these skills next week in our matches.
On Thursday 6th July a group of Year 4 and 5 children attended a basketball development session at Hoops in Barrow. This was a fantastic opportunity to learn a new sport at SJB. The children had a great time and learnt lots of new skills. There were seven schools there and SJB played really well. Look out for basketball next year! Thank you to Mrs Dearden and Mrs Little for accompanying the group and to Mr Bowker for organising the afternoon.
