Our Year 6 Leavers attended a very special service at Carlisle Cathedral yesterday.

It was the first of it's kind and they really enjoyed it!

Year 6 leavers from across the county joined together to celebrate this transitional time together. Each school made a banner to represent their schools values and showcased them during a procession through the cathedral and it was rounded off by each school receiving a leavers service candle.

The service was caught on camera as was our praise aerobics(dancing) and featured on BBC Cumbrias website.

The Good Shepherd

Posted: 18th Apr 2016

Our collective worship theme this week is The Good Shepherd. Mrs Cummings brought her pet lamb into school to tell us all how she cares for it. She has asked if we can bring a photo or a drawing of us with an animal that we look after (it can be anything from a cow to a canary)! We are going to put these up in the hall and if we want to do some writing to explain how we look after our animals then Mrs Cummings will put these up too. We are really looking forward to seeing everyones animals!
