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!
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.
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
