Praise for our Year 4 children

Last week our year 4 children attended Boggle Hole for a 3 day residential trip.  Today we recieved a lovely email from the hostel management:

We deal with hundreds of schools and I must honestly say your school and teachers were an absolute delight.

Polite, lovely kids and well organised, kind and caring teachers, a real credit to your school.

Hope to see you againJ

Many Kind Thanks



Boggle Hole 2017

Our Year 4 children enjoyed an fun filled tri to Boggle Hole youth hostel near Whtby.  They had a great time learning about smugglers and taking part in a seashore safari and fossil hunt.  On an evening they toasted marshmallows around the fire pit and had a pirates party.  An absolutely fabulous time was had by all.

London II day 2

After a very busy first day some of the Year 6 children found it a bit exhausting.

Yesterday our children enjoyed a fabulous day on a sightseeing tour of London.  They enjoyed breakfast alfresco then set off to see the Queen!

After lots of walking the children returned to the youth hostel for a quiz.  You can see from the pictures that Mrs Dunn’s KFK team won – well done!

… and it’s not just the children having fun!

London … so far

The children who are in London have been enjoying an action packed few days.  They have been on a walking tour of the sights, taking in Tower Bridge, Buckingham Palace and many more.  They have also been to the Science Museum.  Yesterday the children went on an Educational Tour of the Houses of Parliament, organised through Stephen Hepburn MP’s office.  Then in a rare opportunity the children were allowed to enter the gates of Downing Street in order to get their photo taken outside the Prime Minister’s house – No. 10.  Last night they went to see School of Rock in the West End.  So far it has been full on and fantastic!  Today they will be having their breakfast then heading to Harry Potter Studios before heading home.

Borrowdale March 2017

41 of our Year 5 children went on residential to the beautiful valley of Borrowdale – it certainly lived up to it’s reputation of being the wettest place in England!  They spent an action packed 3 days working alongside a team of instructors from Live4Adventure.  They went hill walking, canoeing on Derwentwater, ghyll scrambling in Honister Ghyll and climbing.  After a hearty, homecooked meal every evening they learned about the Keswick Mountain Rescue team, went on a night walk and competed in a variety of team challenges.  Mrs Crawford’s team won the team problem solving challenge – well done for working so well together!

Praise for our children

5 of our Key stage 2 children attended Explore4All’s Winter Wonderland residential in Grasmere this weekend.  After they returned we received this email:

Please pass on how fantastic the children from St. Aloysius were this weekend.  Their behaviour was exemplary and they were so caring towards each other – like a little family. It was noticed and commented on in the youth hostel by another guest staying there.  A real  credit to the school!

Well done children
