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.
This week Key Stage 1 enjoyed a trip to the Lake District. The morning started with a bus trip to Bowness and then an interesting boat ride to Lakeside. Both classes were then lucky enough to have a guided tour around the Lakes Aquarium. The children had the chance to see and find out about a range of sea life, with some children holding snails and starfish. We then climbed on board the Lakeside and Haverthwaite Railway and enjoyed the ride to Haverthwaite Station. The children then had their lunch and a play on the adventure playground at the station. We all had a fantastic day out!
This term in Reception we have been looking at Christian Celebrations. We have looked at Christenings and Weddings. Today we had a visit to the local church to role-play a wedding. We had a great time! We wore our best party clothes and attended the wedding of the year!
Once the ‘ceremony’ was over we came back to school to have the wedding reception. There was the first dance, the cutting of the cake and even time for musical statues! At one point during the celebrations the teachers were having a boogie and they then realised that all the children were sitting down with whiteboards writing!!
It has been a fantastic day and something that the children will remember years down the line.
We would like to say a massive THANK YOU to Reverend Ransom at Ulverston Methodist Church for performing the ceremony and making it a fantastic experience.
