A huge welcome to our new farm animals – three lovely Alpacas. By far the most popular thing with the children to arrive at school in the last year! We now have three young male Alpacas: Edson (Born June 2016, Fawn coloured), Quebec (Born June 2016, Black Male) and Quantum (Bay Black Male, born July […]
Jack (with help from Julia) checked the school Bees this week – doing so well we’ve had to add extra frames! Hoping for the Queen cells to allow us to split the hive so we have two – maybe more honey for us in the future?!
Very nice to have the achievements of the school in the local paper!

We should also, hopefully, have our Observation hive in place in school by […]

Given that their […]
The first school lambs of 2017 – a Tup and a Gimmer! Well done Samuel (and George of course)!
A lovely day at the Cross-Country this afternoon and well done to all children for completing a very difficult course, especially the one who won his race again!
Year 5/6 had a fantastic trip to Whitehaven on Friday (apart from the weather!), learning about the History of the port and also linking it to our work on the Slave and Spice Trades in Cumbria. A long way to go but worth it!
