Our Year 6 children went to Carlisle Cathedral for the Diocese Leavers Service. It was a lovely, fun and active service. Following the service Rev Alun had managed to arrange for Canon Michael to give us a tour round the Cathedral. It was a fascinating insight which we all enjoyed. To quote one of the children, "I'm really hungry but this is so worth being hungry for!"
Jesse Dinnie, a professional cricket player from Australia, has been coaching Class 4 in cricket on a Friday morning. The children are learning lots of batting and fielding skills, and are enjoying having Jesse at school with them.
Class 4 have been working extremely hard during our SATs assessment week. On Thursday, for a treat, Mrs Mounsey and Miss McWhirter took them all for an ice-cream to the Chocolate Shop, followed by some fun and games at the park and sports field!
Class 4 had a special visitor this morning,
Mr Stuart Atkinson from the
Class 4 are researching space as their topic this half term
and were fascinated by Mr Atkinson's knowledge.
Having the chance to hold a 4 billion year old meteorite from Mars
and a piece of Moon rock was very exciting.
The meteorite was heavier than the children expected.
A mystery object was passed around...this turned out to be fossilised dinosaur poo !
1000 million years old ~ a baby compared to the meteorite!
As part of our dance lessons, Class 4 have been learning different dances from around the world. Here are some photos of our Bollywood dancing inspired by Indian Bollywood films. We had lots of fun and loved the music that Mrs Mounsey chose to dance to!
Class 4 have been learning Street Dance as part of our PE lessons. We have been instructed by the world famous dance choreographer "Shaun T" and developed a series of dances. The children went on to planning their own signature "motif" and linked it together in a "Dance Off"! It was so much fun!
