Special Events


Multi-Skills Competition 

We had a great time at Chris Wright's Multi-Skills tournament. Broughton came 3rd! 

Cockermouth Music Group

We had a lovely assembly. The children from Cockermouth School came to share their talents. We even sang along to Taylor Swift.

GIST Truck Safety

Year 1 children were given a fantastic opportunity to see the GIST truck and learn about road safety and the lack of visibility in trucks. They were able to climb into the truck and experience what a driver can and cannot see from inside the cab. They were even given free stickers! 


We shared lots of information about different Kings and Queens we've learned about. We also talked about the upcoming Royal Wedding. All of the children were fantastic and learned all their lines ready for the assembly. 

100 Mile Challenge

We launched our 100 Mile Challenge by running our first mile together.

Royal Wedding

We had a great day celebrating the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. We had afternoon tea to celebrate, with lots of yummy cakes!

Liz Hunter came to visit us to talk to us about her work in Sierra Leon. We learned a lot about what it is like for children going to school there and how fortunate we are.

Carlisle Castle

We've been to Carlisle Castle to learn more about castles. Click HERE to see more pictures.

Commonwealth Medal

Luke Greenbank came to visit us with his Silver medal! We all had a turn at holding it - it was a lot heavier than we thought it would be.

Well done Luke!


We took part in the whole school egg dump and brought in eggs we'd decorated at home.

American School Link

We video called Mrs Lee's class in America to ask questions about their school and how they celebrate Easter.

We all came to school in our sporty clothes to raise money for a great charity. We even did a HIT session with Miss Eve to get our steps in.


We enjoyed our Easter puppet show.

World Downs Syndrome Day

We celebrated World Downs Syndrome Day by wearing odd socks and silly socks. What a colourful day in school. 

Natwest Money Sense 

We had some lovely volunteers in to join us for some workshops. We learned about what we can do with our money and how much things cost. 

World Book Day 

After rescheduling because of the snow, we had a fantastic day! Can you spot any famous book characters? 

Helen O'Grady Visit

Beck from the Helen O'Grady Company came to visit us. She is a drama teacher and we had a fantastic time practising our projection and articulation skills. We even created our own play all about a picnic! 

The New Bookshop

We went to the bookshop to collect our book for this month. We really enjoyed listening to stories and having a look around the shop.

Christmas trip to the Gincase...

We had the best time at the Gincase. We got to see Santa and get a present! The children enjoyed playing on the soft play and feeding the animals.
