Children in Year 5 and 6 were given a taste of Rugby during their P.E. lessons by John from Carlisle United, with lots of new skills taught to the very eager children.

What a busy start to 2017 we have had so far.
Towards the end of last year children from Year 3 went along to Carlisle baths to work towards their swimming certificates. Whilst they were swimming, the Year 4’s were taken to Chatsworth Tennis Club for some lessons with Becky which the children thoroughly enjoyed.
Children in Year 5 were given the opportunity to take part in some indoor athletics activities at Caldew School.
The children had a go at javelin, chest push, vertical jump and long jump to name a few. They all returned to school full of chat of the new things they had learnt.
Children in Year 5 and 6 were selected, after trials on the school field, to represent the school at The Sands Centre Indoor Athletics Competition. The children trained daily, giving up their lunch-breaks, to prepare themselves for the competition. On 16th November they all set off confident they would try their best and enjoy the experience. The children did try their best ....and WON!
We are now invited to the Finals in Penrith in March, WELL DONE to all those who took part.
