Our production of Hansel and Gretel was a huge success and every single child tried their best. Well done to each and every one of you.

We had our own election this week. We discussed why the General Election was being held and learnt new vocabulary like ballot paper, polling card and manifesto. We created our own parties, emblems and manifestos then presented them to the rest of the class. We then took our polling card to our polling station and exchanged our card for our ballot paper. The official count took place and the Earth party won, the Health party were second and the Aries party came third.

On Tuesday year 5 and 6 spent time working under their tables! The lights were off, the room was silent except for eerie music playing and a forest scene covered the whiteboard. The children imagined they were characters from our alien story and that they were hiding in the thicket watching a spaceship land. They did some amazing writing and it was brilliant to see them fully engrossed in their work.

After 6 weeks off our garden was looking very untidy. Luckily 29 pairs of hands quickly made it tidy again! We also harvested the rest of our produce. We got to take leeks and onions home and tasted our blueberries, tomatoes and strawberries. They were all delicious and some of our vegetables made it into homemade soup, spaghetti bolognese and roast dinners.

We have harvested our potatoes today, it was like having a treasure hunt hunting for all our potatoes, we were delighted with the bag of potatoes we got to take home for our tea.

We are enjoying harvesting the produce we planted earlier in the year. We have tasted strawberries, spring onions, purple carrots and orange carrots so far, they were all delicious! . We still have potatoes, rhubarb, blueberries, tomatoes and leeks to enjoy. Try growing some at home, it really is very easy.

We thoroughly enjoyed a careers event at Lakes College. We learnt about at least 20 careers and it has got us thinking about our future aspirations

We focused on the art work of Georgia O'Keeffe during our modern art project. Do you think our work looks similar in style to hers?

After learning the different parts of a flower in one lesson we had the opportunity to dissect real flowers the next lesson. We all had a brilliant time and were really amazed by what we found. Watch out parents...if any of your flowers go missing they may have been dissected!

Choosing just one book to share with the rest of the class during reading week and World Book Day proved a little tricky for some of us! Mrs Murray was actually secretly delighted that we found it hard to choose just one!

We are very proud of our display showing how we promote the British Values in our School. Ask us to tell you what the British Values are and how we as a school promote them.

We learnt valuable chopping skills today with Harriet from Phunky Foods. We made some healthy snacks and of course we got to taste them too. They were absolutely delicious

If you enjoyed cooking with Harriet from Phunky Foods then follow this link https://www.phunkyfoods.co.uk/recipes/ to find lots of new recipes you could try making at home. Cooking with your family is a great way to learn new skills, communicate and have fun (it links brilliantly to our 5 steps to Wellbeing). Go on have a go!smiley

We had fun using the old fashioned proddy rug making technique with artist Janice Murray from Rosehill. Everyone made a piece of proddy rug and Janice is going to sew them all together onto a coat to create a costume for a wolf which will be displayed at Rosehill. 

Key Stage Two joined their friends from Arlecdon Primary on a trip to the Senhouse Museum and Mile Fortlet 21. The Solway Coast has lots of examples of Roman archeology , as there was a large Roman presence owing to the closeness of Cumbria to Hadrian's Wall and the Scottish 'barbarians'. 

We learnt a great deal about local Roman history as well as some links to Geography and Science, when looking at the salt pans and the coast has changed over time. 

We were lucky enough to be able to try on some of the actual props and costumes that we saw used at the two theatre performances we went to. Can you spot the Beast?

We have been discovering how magnetic forces can act at a distance. We were given a magnet and told to find other equipment and use our imagination to prove the force acts at a distance

Second drama session with Dave from the Theatre on the Lake. We loved the theatre performance and did some great drama mirroring each other and involving scenes with robots

We thoroughly enjoyed our Water Workshop and learnt lots too. We have now made water promises such as to switch the tap off when we brush our teeth or have a shorter shower. In 6 weeks Jenny will come back to see if we have kept our promises, if we have we might get a prize!
