We are delighted to have had our Lottery funded outdoor learning areas completed over the last couple of days! This now means we have two purpose built areas in which the children can learn outdoors – the outdoor classroom and the nature area, and in addition we have had some extra items added to Class 1’s outdoor learning environment. Hopefully your children will be as excited about these developments as we are!
There are more surprises in store over the next few months so please bear with us but we know you will agree that it will be worth the wait!

Millom Schools Cross Country 6th September 2017
Amazing cross country results today from a very dedicated and determined team of children from years 3, 4, 5 and 6. They represented the school so well and particularly demonstrated the Christian values of friendship and endurance in their efforts! A particular highlight was the sight of all of the completed runners running back up the course they had just finished to all the way back with a struggling team member, to help them to complete the race. It was a very proud moment, particularly with the announcement from one of the team members of, "We don't leave anyone behind - what are friends for?"
Y3/4 girls: Annie 1st, Katrina 5th
Y3/4 boys: Reuben 1st, Jude 7th
Y5/6 mixed girls and boys: We were the only school so finished in the top 8 places! :)
Harvest Service 5th October 2017
Our harvest service was celebrated at Waberthwaite Church with a range of songs and performances by the children. We really hope you enjoyed the service as much as we did and thank you for supporting the children's charity choice of buying a farmer somewhere else in the world the items they need to feed and support their family. They raised £65.05 which the school council will spend in the Oxfam online shop next week. We will let you know what they choose!
