Every child in school has been given a leaflet that outlines the Operation Christmas Child appeal for 2015. Pupils are invited to fill a used shoebox with suitable toys and gifts for a child of primary school age who will not enjoy the same benefits at Christmas time. Once your shoebox is filled please wrap it in seasonal paper and bring it to school by Monday 16th November. The shoeboxes will then be taken to Brampton Methodist church before distribution.
children in need day - 13th november
On Friday 13th November pupils were invited to dress up as a Superhero to raise money for BBC’s Children in Need appeal. There were lots of characters roaming around school and we raised a total of £71.80 for worthy causes.
Can you see Super Nurse or Cat/Bat Man? There are many too spot. And to compliment our Literacy Week Rachael Perry from the School Library Service came out to run sessions in the library.
literacy week at warwick bridge
We had a really great time this week with a host of activities that boosted the imagination of all children. Earlier in the week we had the fascination of an alien spaceship crashing on the playing field. Pupils explored the debris, watched a news report online and listened to warning announcements from the mystery voice. There were alien footprints in the hallway and a photographer from the Cumberland News came to report on the situation. He also answered questions from Y6 pupils about how reports can be created.
Pupils also had the opportunity to wear pyjamas on Thursday and bring their own bedtime story book in to school. Pupils looked at ways to perform poetry. On Friday each class had a session with Rachael Perry a visiting librarian.
Everyone had a thoroughly good time and many thanks to Mr Walsh for organising the week.
Pupils in the Reception and Nursery classes have been enjoying time up at Tarraby Woods, Houghton. They have been learning a lot about the outdoors with Ruth Alcroft whose excellent teaching always gave the pupils a lot to think about as well as imparting a wealth of knowledge. Thank you Ruth and Farmer Susan for a fantastic seven weeks of fun.
We want all pupils to make the most of their break times so it is important that they are able to go on the field in this wet weather. Please provide some named wellies or similar boots that can be used at break times on the grass. These boots can be kept at school for the purpose of going on the grass.

School Council – 12 pupils meet to discuss issues that affect school life. This week they chose a new football kit.
Playground Buddies – the buddies organise games, look after pupils and choose their WOW awards weekly.

It is good to see so many pupils taking part in the life of the school in such a positive way.
