The Skelton School Gymnastic team recently took part in the Penrith Area Key Steps Gymnastics Festival, finishing in third place - an amazing achievement which was so well deserved after their hard work and effort! Well done to you all!
The Year 3/4 children took part in the U Dance Festival at the Sands Centre, Carlisle. They performed to a sell-out crowd and loved every minute of their time in the limelight. They choreographed the dance themselves (with a little help from Mrs Newton!) and based it on a theme of teamwork and friendship. Their dance was called EVERYTHING IS AWESOME....and they certainly were!!
The Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 children have been learning all about Beatrix Potter this term. Here are the children visiting her house, Hill Top, to see where she wrote and illustrated the stories she became so famous for. Later, we visited The World of Beatrix Potter to see her magical tales come to life.
FA coach, Matt Owens is a regular visitor to Skelton School and has been here this term teaching the Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 children how to play football - these pictures show what a great time they are having!
Science Week at Skelton School - Science was celebrated across the school with a wide range of activities for all classes - as well as Science lessons with their class teachers, the children took part in a Phunky Foods workshop with Mrs Douglas, rocket launching with Mr Brennan, a Forensic Science wokshop with Mrs Hunt, and a Science Ceilidh with Lewis and Helen. An amazing week was had by all and the children loved investigating, experimenting and learning all about Science!
The annual Skelton Pudding Festival was held at the Village Hall. A wide array of scrumptious cakes and puddings were entered in each of the seven categories. After the public vote decided each category winner, a panel then decided the overall winner - this year, it was Matthew and his Raspberry Zesty Zinger. It was a wonderful afternoon, and the Friends of Skelton School are very grateful to everybody who entered puddings and came along to taste them. We are all looking forward to next year!
