Yesterday we were joined by Emma Williams from Lancashire Music Service who came to teach us some new songs for our assemblies. We did lots of crazy warm up activities with our mouths and made lots of weird sounds. We hope to be able to sing them to you in our assembly on Friday morning. Katrina Harkin Class 1 teacher
The children enjoyed an outside picnic style lunch yesterday eating a selection of sandwiches, crisps and sausage rolls. finishing off with strawberry cakes for dessert. The children got dressed up for the occasion wearing royal crowns and waving Union flags. Even the Queen put in an appearance! Katrina Harkin Class 1 teacher
Children from Reception to Year 5 had the opportunity to bake together today. Reception children made chocolate nests from cornflakes and maltesers. They melted the chocolate and then mixed in the cornflakes. Once the mixture had begun to set they placed maltesers on top to represent the eggs in the nest. They learnt about melting and cooling as well as enjoying a delicious treat! Year 1 to 5 children independently made chocolate chip cookies. They had to weigh out each ingredient and follow the instructions carefully. Team leaders from Year 4 led each group very well. Katrina Harkin Class 1 teacher [...]

As a school in the Lune Valley where cycling is a way of life, we support our children in staying safe on the roads. Children began by checking the road worthiness of their bikes before hitting the roads around Caton.
