Headteacher Friday Update 4th October 2019

Date: 4th Oct 2019 @ 1:32pm

Another busy week in the school calendar has passed and half term is fast approaching!  We have managed to avoid the water from entering the building so far, with the help of some active Year 5s!  Without their teamwork, we may have encoutered problems with the torrential downpours but when we needed to pull together, we did and to great effect!

Class 2 children are doing ever so well with their violin lessons and learning lots of new and exciting skills and musical knowledge.

I have also been observing teaching across the school this week and have seen some engaging, knowledge rich and challenging sessions from our superb teachers.  Thank you to them all for their continued hard work and well done to the children for all their efforts in their schoolwork.  It is a privilege to be able to watch everyone in action and a joy to share in the children's learning and development.  The wake-up, shake-up routine was certainly a good start to the day in Class 1 and the children seemed amused with my very own version of the exercises...I can't think why?!

Next week promises to be inspiring and hectic!  Our artists are due in to all classes to talk and demonstrate about: painting, stained glass, floristry, willow work, spinning, animation, music, print and needlework.  We are looking forward to welcoming our visitors and learning about their skill and passion.  

We have our Harvest Festival on Tuesday at 2pm in The Priory.  Please do come along if you are able.

Class 3 are also looking forward to more on WW2, with a visitor to school early in the week and a trip to Eden Camp on the Friday.

We also have lots of sports planned with continuing football, yoga and netball, alongside a cluster football competition at Cartmel Priory.

With best wishes for a lovely weekend, 

Mrs Battersby
