We were so sad that our Sports Day had to be cancelled - it was to be our first event in a very long time for us to welcome parents to a school event. The pandemic didn't stop us but unfortunately the lovely Cumbrian weather got the better of us. It's not easy squeezing a year's worth of fun in to one term so, with no other available date in the diary this year, we couldn't re-arrange. The children were so excited to run their races though and have been practising for weeks, so we were delighted to be able to give them the opportunity to do so in their PE lessons. There were some fantastic performances and all children will be coming home this week with their individual certificates of achievement. Well done everyone!!
We were so delighted that our residential to St John's in the Vale was able to take place this year. All of the Year 3/4 children took part in the visit and we all had an amazing time. When we arrived, we went orienteering then played lots of outdoor games and took part in nature activities. After supper, we went back outside to play rounders and Mr Newman's wide game. When we'd got our pyjamas on, we had chocolate cake and hot chocolate before bedtime. The next day, we went for a walk up High Rigg then headed home, tired but happy!
What a lovely evening for another of our sports-themed After School Clubs - today it's orienteering! Hope we don't get lost!! 🌞😃
A huge thank you to everyone that supported our Duck Race yesterday. Special thanks go to The Sun Inn, Newton Reigny for hosting the event, to the hundreds of you that bought ducks, to our wonderful sponsors and all the helpers that made it possible. Over £1500 was raised in aid of Friends of Skelton School and Patterdale Mountain Rescue. We hope that you all had a wonderful day! 🦆🦆
How wonderful it has been today to be at Penrith Cricket Club for an inter-school sporting event after such a long time away. Our Year 5/6 team played brilliantly and won both of their matches. Thanks as always to Debbie and Julie from the Eden Valley Sports Partnership for organising the event!
There was more exciting Gymnastics news for Skelton School this week!! Not only did our KS1 gymnasts do brilliantly in the County final of the Key Steps Gymnastics Festival, we were told today that our Year 3/4 team had huge success too. In the recent competition, held virtually, the team were the overall winners of Key Step 2 in the Eden area meaning they qualified for the County final. In the County final, they achieved second place!! To say they were super-happy is an under statement, and we are all super-proud of them. Congratulations!!!
Unfortunately not the ones with chocolate chips.
