It’s been great to have all of the children back playing together at playtimes and lunchtimes this week. The older and younger ones have really missed each other and it’s been lovely to see them caring and supporting their friends.
We’ve also had a visit from the library van and some of the children attended the Eden Valley Sports Partnership cross country run at Kirkby Stephen Grammar School, where they did exceptionally well! ... See MoreSee Less
It’s been lovely to welcome all of the children back this week and particularly our new starters in Miss Winter’s class. The school garden and the area at the front of the building are looking wonderful and the children have been particularly impressed with the enormous sunflowers. Thank you to all of the helpers and Friends of Temple Sowerby School for their efforts over the summer months! ... See MoreSee Less
Good to see the garden looking so good. Best wishes for a good year ahead.

Over the last few weeks Gardening Club have been working on projects to help attract more wildlife into the garden. The bug house has been re-filled, log pile areas have been added and wildlife ponds have been created too. We were delighted this week to see we have strawberries growing, and we also welcomed our first visitor into one of the ponds (can you spot them?). 🐸 #TempleSowerbySchool #Cumbria #WildlifeGarden #GardeningForWildlife #SchoolGardening #OutdoorLearning ...

Today we were joined by Nat Pattinson from Carlisle, who has represented Great Britain and won countless medals in the sport of wheelchair basketball. It isn’t the first time Nat has visited us, and it was great to have him back. All of the children had a fantastic time learning how to play and how, with resilience, determination and hard work, you can achieve your goals. ... See MoreSee Less
Our school council have organised a sponsored ‘100-mile Challenge’ to take place in school on Friday 25th June. All of the children will be involved and will be running as many laps of our school running track as they can over the course of the day. There will be a healthy tuck shop and drinks station and we will be adding up each child’s total to see if we can reach a total of 100 miles.
Letters and sponsorship forms were sent home with the children last week. All funds raised will be split - half will go to the school council’s chosen charities (Hospice at Home and Homeless Aid UK) and the other half will be used to enable every child in school to choose their favourite book for our school library.
We hope you will be able to support us and help raise funds for our amazing school!

It’s the end of another busy week at Temple Sowerby. Throughout the week, our Year 5 and 6 children have completed their Bikeability road safety course. On Wednesday, Alex the artist worked with the juniors to make some amazing models based on our class book, ‘The Iron Man’ by Ted Hughes. Then, on Thursday, the whole school took part in an art workshop with Ian from Doodlebug, where we learned all about the importance of working hard, facing challenges and learning from our mistakes. Finally, some of the children received medals from the recent Hunter Hall Cross Country, with the Y1/2 boys, Y1/2 girls and Y3/4 boys all finishing in the top 3 schools. All that, plus cricket, gardening and running club. Well done to all for another amazing week and hope you all have a great half-term! ... See MoreSee Less
A big well done to all of the children who took part in today's Virtual Hunter Hall Cross Country. As we can't actually compete with other schools this year, we went down to Temple Sowerby Cricket Club and recorded the children's times as they ran the set distances of 1.5km (Years 1 and 2), 2.0km (Years 3 and 4) and 2.5km (Years 5 and 6). There were some great performances and it was lovely to see the children supporting and cheering each other on. ... See MoreSee Less
