March Madness - A busy month of inter-school activities at Caton CPS

As you are reading this the children, staff and families will have been enjoying a well earned holiday, as well as remembering and celebrating Easter. This was marked in school by a lovely assembly by Alan Wadsworth and the class 1 children making their specially embroidered Easter cards. Their sewing skills were very impressive!

Hopefully you will now see some excellent bike riders in the shape of our Year 5 and 6 children around the village, as at the beginning of March they all successfully completed their Bikeability course run by LCC. It was a two day intensive course that covered all aspects of bike maintenance and road safety when riding a bicycle. It's great to see so many of the children with their new found skills and confidence taking the healthy route to school! Class 2 also took part in a couple of other sporting events held locally, representing the school in the local Tag Rugby competition held at Wray Primary School and the High 5 Netball competition held at Heysham High School. All the children showed fantastic sportsmanship, especially when pitched against very experienced teams, and were a credit to the school. Class 1 weren't to be left out of sporting themed activities as they had a fantastic day at Borwick Hall taking part in a miriad of outdoor and adventurous activities such as climbing, canoeing and caving. Not only have the children taken part in inter-school sporting events such as the tag rugby, netball, foorball and a multi-skills afternoon, they have also participated in other inter-school activities such as another french quiz, this time held at Caton St Paul's, against the children in Socx. It was a close contest again with the Socx children winning by one point - well done to all those who took part. Some of our Safety Stars children were invited to Lancaster Town Hall as part of the Pupil Parliament Conference at which they met other school councils from the area and found out all about the new Children's University which will be starting in the near future through local primary schools. Class 2 enjoyed a specially organised trip by our very successful 4th year teaching student to Lancaster Priory and Lancaster Cathedral. The objective was to look at how religious leaders are portrayed through art in these special places, focussing on the wonderful stained glass windows, sculptures and statues and other artifacts. It was amazing to find out all about the symbolisim in the windows and how these told special stories of events.

Future Events:

20th May - Victorian tea party lunch
