Together we can Shine

Friday afternoon

Friday Afternoons


On Friday afternoons, activities are rotated across the year.


  • DT Challenge! (Objective Led)

Children are given a learning objective, which they then design and make a project around using their technical knowledge. At the end of the project, they then evaluate their work.


  • Forest School

Our children take part in outdoor learning. We use our own grounds and the local environment for children to undertake activities. We use the Yurt as a base.


  • PE Challenges and Games

Children take part in PE activities and games. We often develop skills during the afternoon and then have mini competitions in school.


Across the year, we also go out and undertake fell or mountain challenges or walks along Allonby beach.

Adele - Our School Calf


Our enterprise team went to auction with money they had raised and bought a calf for the school. The calf is now kept on a local farm, and the children raise money to pay for its up-keep. We will, eventually, sell the calf and hopefully make a profit to buy a new calf.

Adele the calf was sold at auction in 2020.
