On Wednesday 6th June, the sun came out as Year 6 descended on the MUGA pitch for their long awaited Sports Day.  The children were so excited as their parents were able to come and watch this year!  

The sporting activities commenced with the much anticipated ‘Running Race’. The boys and girls were divided into two heats, then the winners from the heats participated in the final.  We were very professional, we even had ‘VAR’!


The second race was the potato spoon, followed by the sack race, then the bean throw and we finished with the obstacle race.


However, at the end we made a surprise announcement to our spectators, the ‘ladies’ and ‘gentlemen’ race!  The crowd were great sports as many of them took to the starting line as they competed for first place! As they ran down the pitch, there were loud cheers of support from Year 6.  

The event was brought to a close with the presentation of 1st, 2nd and 3rd positions in each of the five activities. 

Year 6 would like to thank all of their family and friends attending sports day and making the day special.

Down High School Visit


On Thursday 9th June, an excited group of children travelled to Down High School for an exhilarating  morning.  They were escorted around the school with past pupils from Cumran.  The highlight of the visit was visiting the science lab where the children got to sample all three sciences: chemistry, physics and biology.


The next class was French, the children discussed which countries in the world speak french, foods which are eaten in France including snails 🐌 ! The final part of the lesson was learning how to pronounce and identify animals. 

The final stop was in the Home Economics department.  The class learnt about eating healthy food and how they will develop their cooking skills as they progress through to Year 10! The self-made pizzas went down a treat, unfortunately all accompanying adults had to look on while their mouths watered when the children scoffed the pizzas. 😋

(However, the adults did have tea/coffee on arrival along with shortbread)


The children has a great morning at Down High and are now highly motivated to work on their practice Papers as they prepare for the AQE test. 

A huge thank you to staff and pupils at Down High who provided a very warm welcome and gave the children an insight into live at their school.

Shimna Integrated Visit


Year 6 were invited to participate in a Year 6 activity day at Shimna Integrated College in Newcastle.  We excitedly boarded the luxury bus and made our way to the school.  When we arrived inside, we were divided into two groups and then we participated in a range of fun lessons.  We couldn’t believe how big the school was, though we had fantastic tour guides who took us to the different lessons including: ‘Home Economics’, ‘French’, ‘Drama’, ‘R.E’ and ‘Geography’. We had a fantastic day and would like to thank Shimna for organising the event and giving us a wonderful insight into day to day life at a secondary school.
