Year 1 have been to Lowes Court Gallery to look at the work form the artist of the month. We had an amazing time sketching our favourite pictures and are looking forward to completing a challenge they set us. 🎨

We then popped down to Hartley's Icecream for our Attendance Race winners treat which was very welcome on this lovely day. 🍦

We finished our day with a trip to the castle to look at the landmarks in our local area

In year 1 we had a visitor who brought in a drone for us to take some photos of the school from above, as part of our topic "The Local Area". We laid on the playground to spell out the word 'THE'.

The children loved the experience! 
"The drone could go really high." - Gwen
"The drone could take fantastic pictures." - Mia
"The drone sounded like a bee." - Emily

We enjoyed a fantastic trip to Tullie House in Carlisle.  We learned about old and new toys.  The outdoor games were our favourite because they were quite difficult to do, we also enjoyed dressing up and making our own toy.
