Two of Cumwhinton's core values are Citizenship and Caring so I hoping you can help me with this request please!
Our friends at the Carlisle United Community Sports Trust, who we work closely with in the delivery of our 'Healthy Child/PE' curriculum, have asked for our help.
They have been working with the 'Affordable Food Hub' in Carlisle for a while now - collecting and distributing food parcels to those in our communities who are most in need.
They would like our caring Cumwhinton families to help support their efforts by providing food donations (canned & long-life foods) and/or non-perishable goods (toiletries etc). Any small donation would be so gratefully welcomed. There is a little carrot dangling with this request as for every food bag donation your child will receive a raffle ticket which goes into a draw with the chance of winning a brand-new set of goals and a football!
During the week beginning Monday 7th December a table will be in the playground every morning for you to drop your named carrier bag with your contributions in. Staff will collect the bags and make sure that your child brings their raffle ticket home at the end of the day.
Any donations you can offer would be fantastic and I thank you in advance for you care and support.
As I keep saying, Cumwhinton families are the best.
17th November 2020
We have now relaunched the Road to Tokyo challenge within school - due to not completing the challenges last year we are starting from scratch once again. The children are completing the challenges in their class bubbles and are challenging themselves to do better every time. The class with the biggest improvement is awarded an extra playtime! Good luck everyone.
Here is a fun idea to do as a family as well as giving the children a chance to share their findings with their friends!!
Join up with another family for an A-Z scavenger hunt. You can share your findings through Facetime or picture messages. The children could help to choose the items on the list.
Our amazing Yr 5/6 children take part in this every year - we have even won and come 2nd in previous years.
Pls follow the link for some great ideas for your own mini Pentathlon - maybe even have a family challenge and see who actually 'IS THE WINNER'!!
One for the Mums and Dads (and more sporty children!!) please follow for some really energetic workouts - Tasha has worked in Cumwhinton school delivering various classes after school from Body Combat to Circuits so the children know her well!!
**Pls note this is a private group therefore you will need to like the page and Tasha will accept you...
TB Training Carlisle
