Welcome to the gallery! Please enjoy browsing our photographs.
We had so much fun at our Christmas Party - we played lots of games and Santa brought us all a present. We ended the afternoon with a magnificent party tea!
This year's Skelton School production was 'A Christmas Dream' - the children performed on Thursday 8th and Friday 9th December to packed audiences at Skelton Village Hall. All of the children were amazing and had a wondeful time showing their parents, grandparents and friends their singing, dancing and acting talents. Once again, it was a wonderful celebration of Christmas.
Christmas celebrations have started at Skelton School! The Reception children had great fun putting up our Christmas tree
Skelton School welcomed Pudsey Bear to join in the fun and games on Children in Need Day. We all enjoyed games, competitions, lots of cakes and a special assembly with Pudsey who was thrilled to present Golden Certificates to four of the children. We raised over £350 for this very worthy cause.
A squad of children from Year 5/6 took part in the Eden Sportshall Athletics competition and performed brilliantly in a range of track and field events including long jump, triple jump, obstacle courses, relays and many more - they had a fantastic afternoon of sport and were thrilled to come out as champions!
The Year 5/6 children took part in a 'Bright Sparks' workshop day. We were delighted to welcome STEM Cumbria to our school to spend the day helping us learn all about electricity.
The Year 5/6 children have great pleasure in presenting to you.....'A Midsummer Night's Dream....Congratulations children - your performance of this popular Shakespeare play at the Theatre by the Lake was magnificent, you are all superstars!
Our School Councillors visited the Skelton Sewing Group - the ladies of the Sewing Group have been busy producing a whole array of lovely hats, gloves and scarves which were collected by our councillors and will be passed on to children less fortunate than themselves to enjoy at Christmas time
The first snow of the winter! - We woke up to a Winter wonderland this morning, and the Reception children have wasted no time in getting outside to build snowmen and have lots of fun in the snow!
Dodgeball! - A squad of Year 3/4 children took part in a Dodgeball Festival at Kirkby Stephen Grammar School - they played brilliantly well, finishing in joint 3rd place. Well done to our amazing Dodgeball team!
Skelton School Harvest Service - thank you to all of our families who donated so generously in aid of the Penrith Food Bank - our Year 3/4 school councillors were delighted to be able to deliver all the donated items to the Salvation Army.
The Year 3/4 children designed and made their own clay castles, with the help of Mrs Farley from Pinfold Pottery - the results were amazing!
Autumn leaves - the Reception have been busy clearing the leaves in our play area and the Year 1 and 2 children have loved making Autumn leaf mosaics
Congratulations to our Year 5/6 netballers - joint winners of a recent netball tournament and qualifying to take part in the Eden Area final - congratulations!!!

Our Growing Garden - during the Summer term, a group of parents created a wonderful 'Growing Garden' at Skelton School. It is situated at the front of the school and easily accessible to all of the classes. During the summer term, the infants worked very hard at looking after the plants and watering them every day. This has continued in the Autumn term and now the Year 3/4 children are also helping out. We are very grateful to the Friends of Skelton School and, in particular, Lyn, Vic and Hayley who created our lovely garden. We can't wait to give the produce to Mrs Roper so she can use it in our school dinners!
