Special Events


7.2.19.  United Utilities water workshop

05.02.19. Safer Internet Day

Detective Inspector Gemma Hannah visited our class to talk to the children about how to keep safe on the internet. She discussed issues such as permission and consent and about the possible consequences of sharing things on the internet without permission. Our children now know that they should always be kind when unsing the internet, always speak to a trusted adult if they are unsure about something online, never give personal details away and never, ever arrange to meet anyone in person. 

23.1.19.  A visit from the Mayor of Cockermouth 

Congratulations to all children in Class 6 again for achieving their Strive for 5 reading this half term. They walked into the magical land of Narnia this morning for a cosy cinema experience. Well done class 6!

Congratulations to our first top reader of the class for the author of Michael Morpugo! I’m sure he will enjoy his prize over the Christmas break as it was already on his Christmas list.

7.11.18  A Brave New World WWI day at the Beacon

 We took a trip to the Beacon in Whitehaven to learn more about WWI. We had the opportunity to look at some of the clothing worn by soldiers, handle artefacts and learn about local fallen soldiers. We even walked to the Archive Office to look at different records and documents for these soldiers and learnt about the roles of children in WWI. 

 We also took part in a community project to make some of the 1000 poppies, make from plastic bottles, to be displayed at the Beacon for Remembrance.
