Every June, the Year 3 and 4 class take part in an overnight residential stay at St-John's-in-the-Vale. This year, we were blessed by wonderful weather and had a fantastic two days taking part in environmental and outdoor activities. We had a lovely evening meal followed by a game of rounders then back to the hostel for chocolate cake, hot chocolate and a sing-song before bedtime. On the second day, we went for a walk to the top of High Rigg. We had an amazing time!
This half term, the Nursery and Reception children are studying 'Under the Sea'. It was a bit tricky to find a visit they could do under the sea so, instead, we went to the Derwent Pencil Museum at Keswick, where the lovely staff arranged a wonderful art workshop so we could produce a display, all themed around the sea. We also had time for a look around the museum before having our packed lunches and returning to school. We had a great time.
Skelton School Sports Day was held on a lovely sunny afternoon in June. Races included sprints, egg and spoon, bean bag on head, relays, and many more. Children from all year groups took part and, of course, mums and dads too! A wonderful afternoon was ended with a lovely party tea on the field.
The Year 5/6 class are studying 'Sporting Events' during the summer term. As Hampden Park in Glasgow has been used as a host for the Commonwealth Games, the Football World Cup, the Rugby World Cup and the Euro Championships, this was an ideal place to visit to learn more about sporting venues. Whilst in Glasgow, we also had the opportunity to visit the fantastic Science Centre where we played, explored and investigated, and learnt so much that we didn't know before.
Unfortunately not the ones with chocolate chips.
