Year 2 – Clip and Climb
The children in Year 2 had a great time at Clip and Climb. They were all so brave – I think we have some secret super heroes in our class!
Day 2 – the children have had an excellent second day!
Visitors from New Zealand
The Year 2 class were very lucky to have a talk from two ladies from New Zealand. Rachel is a police woman who grew up on Kells and was chosen to play Rugby for Auckland. She then got chosen to play for New Zealand. Rachel is now a police officer in New Zealand. Carrice helps home the homeless in New Zealand. It was very interesting!
Hinduism and Sikhism Workshop
Children across school took part in a Hinduism and Sikhism workshop. It was very informative and all the children enjoyed it.
Stations of the Cross and our Holy Week Walk
Children across school created artwork based on the Stations of the Cross. They then took part in a service where they reflected on the events of Good Friday.
Each class also went on a ‘Holy Week’ walk. As the children walked around their local area they stopped to listen and reflect on the days of Holy Week. They ended their journey in the church where they took part in adoration of the Blessed Sacrament.
A Dinosaur Came To School
Each class took part in workshops to discover lots of information about rocks, fossils and dinosaurs. At the end of the day there was an assembly and Sophie the T-Rex came to visit!

Phunky Foods – After school club
The children have enjoyed this club so far – in particular they had fun making their very own vegetarian salad. Have a look at what they got up to.
This year the School Councillors decided that they would create a reverse Advent calendar in each class. The children donated items to the food bank for every day of December. The response and support from families we received was fantastic. Thank you to everyone who helped with this cause.
The children in Years 2, 3, 4 and 6 have been showing off what they have learnt this term in Music. All of the children are very talented and have enjoyed learning to play the guitar and sing a variety of songs from pop to rock to Christmas songs.
On Monday the 17th December the children from EYFS – Year 6 took part in a lego day and built their very own sport city. Why not take a look at what they got up to?

Cross Country competition
Children from year 3, 4, 5 and 6 took part in a very wet cross country competition at Hensingham Primary School. All of the children gave it their best shot, tried incredibly hard (it was not an easy course) but most of all they had a lot of fun. A huge well done to all who took part.
