A visit to the Allotment

Mrs Barker took some children to her allotment to collect some pumpkins to make a pie. Along the way they found lots more bounty Рcooking 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!

8 children from Y5 and 6 took part in the annual aquathlon at Ulverston Leisure Centre on Thursday.

They all raced against each other, which certainly made for an entertaining finish.

Sophie smashed the swimming but Malachy, Jake and Lucy ran very fast and were the first ones to cross the finish line within a second of each other.

Tour of Britain

All children from Year 1 to 6 watched the Tour of Britain today.

The children wore their green bowler hats and enjoyed watching the multiple police vehicles come by.

The cyclists received the loudest cheer as they flashed past on their way to Ulverston town centre and on to the hills.

Please watch the highlights on television if you can. ITV 4 8-9pm

SJB sport gold award

SJB has, for a second year running, achieved a gold award for the school games mark.

Our Year 6 leavers in particular deserve a huge amount of credit for this achievement.

We have made lots of progress in sport but there is still more we can do next year.

SJB Playtimes Meet The Chair Of Governors

The fantastic editorial team behind SJB Playtimes carried out a probing interview with our Chair of Governors, Jan Heffernan. The children came up with their own questions and grilled Mrs Heffernan on everything from her responsibilities as the chair of governors to her favourite Star Wars character.

We would like to say a huge ‘Thank You’ to the children involved in SJB Playtimes for all their hard-work throughout the year! You have created something wonderful that we hope will continue next year.

Year 5 teaching PE

Year 5 have spent two afternoons teaching reception children PE skills they themselves have learnt.

They chose activities and were given freedom on how they taught the younger children.

We were extremely pleased with how they communicated and encouraged them.

These are the really great moments where you can step back and watch 60 children learning from each other.
