RG Final class assembly

Today, RG performed their final reception performance! It was absolutely astounding -everyone enjoyed it as they taught us all about their trip to Thornton  Farm.

 First, they met animals which were sheep, lambs, and then fed and also petted them. The next task was to go on a farm safari, a tractor ride – which they said was a very bumpy ride! They went over to the shed where a bull was and met its good friend who was farmer Benny.

After they told us what they thought of the bull, they moved on to telling us about their time in Reception and what they had learnt! They showed us their amazing maths skills, explaining to us all about pictographs and what they represent.  They then told us that they could spell, read and write. We then took a journey through their year with them and looked at pictures from September until now.

Well done RG!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Jamie’s Ministry of food

On Monday and Tuesday of this week, Year 4 took part in Jamie Oliver’s Ministry of Food. They went over to extra club to learn about healthy eating, food hygiene and food awareness. Andy, the chef for the two days, told them all what we should eat and what  we shouldn’t eat. He showed us a balanced diet plate and the stuff we are meant to eat more of was in the larger part on of the plate. The food we shouldn’t eat were in the smaller part of the plate.

Once he told us how to cut with a sharp knife, we had to  cut our own food up in to quarters and half.  We had cut up all of our food and put in the pan and started to mix all the the spices up into the food  to flavour our vegetable fajitas. At the end of the session our parents were invited to join us to take a look at the fun things that we had been up to. When we finally finished cooking, it was time to put the cooked vegetables into the wraps with some yogurt and cheese. Then we ate our lovely delicious wrap.We all would probably do it again!We all loved learning how to cook.

Marley (4J) said, “I love mushrooms. I’ll be making this at home.”

Year 3 School Linking

As part of the School Linking Project, Year 3 went to visit Year 3 at Westbourne primary school. The first thing they did was to get on the bus and set off on the short journey to Manningham in Bradford. When they got to Westbourne Primary School, they meet with their partners that they meet with at Nell Bank a few months ago .They then split into 3 groups for the day.

Their first activity was to match jigsaw shapes collage with their partners,they were solving a puzzle which was teaching them to work together and to get a long with each other. As soon as they finished the fist activity,they moved on to the 2nd activity which was outdoors. The outdoor activity was to tie their partners legs and to make them knock over the cones whilst being blindfolded and guiding them.

Their 3 activity was a parachute game were they had to work together to not drop the ball and just keep it on. Then, after a while, they were allowed to knock the ball off the parachute. Before leaving, they played one last game, the shark game! Everyone had a fantastic day and now our Year 3 classes can’t wait for Westbourne to visit them next half term.

1P Class Assembly

Today at 2:45, half of  Year one had their class assembly about George and the Dragon. To start off their remarkable show,  they told us about the lead character (George) and his courageous personality and how brave he was. 1P began to tell the audience  the  start of the story, they managed to captivate the viewers and take them on a journey to a small village were George had rode on his horse to save the princess from a towering monster know as a dragon. The dragon wanted to eat the princess because it was very hungry.

They started to sing a song about the knight who was very helpful to all the people in the old town were the beast had tried to eat every female in the area. After they had sang the song, that they had learnt over the past few weeks, then they told the audience about what they did on their school trip to Skipton Castle at the castle they drew landscape pictures of what they saw.They really enjoyed their visit to Skipton Castle and wished they could go again.

4J class assembly

This afternoon, Year Four had their class assembly about their residential to Nell Bank. To start off, they sang a song (that they had learnt whilst on their trip) to show off all of the exciting activities they had done. Two people in bright-orange jackets led the song and put actions with it and the rest of 4J followed.

They began to tell the audience about what they had done on their first day: mini beast hunting! They showed everybody what they found on their hunt, which was a centipede, an earthworm (did you know they breathe out of their skin?) and a woodlouse. As a treat, they got to go to the adventure playground for a little while as well as the water playground, where they got to play and have fun.

After a long, much-needed sleep, it was time for the next adventurous day, where they told the school all about the 7.5 mile walk they went on, from Nell Bank to Cow and Calf and then back again! Whilst at the Cow and Calf, the children were told a story about a giant, who lived near a huge, old cliff, with big boulders that were scattered around, and they really enjoyed it.

Tired out from their walk, we were told all about their experience of going to the adventure playground, which wore them out completely! On the last day, Year 4 went pond dipping and showed us some pictures of what they had found such as, a newt, baby snails and lots of other animals. Next, was the fantastic den building, and got to tell their groups all about their houses that they had built – someone even made a chandelier!

Sad, but glad to get back, the children finally went home, back to their parents, who they were very glad to see as some of the kids had never gone away without their mum and dad before. The children loved their trip and would have loved to stay longer. They performed a fantastic assembly to Blakehill!

4L class Assembly

Today,was 4L’s class assembly about their trip to Nell Bank and about what they did whilst there . They had a Countryfile theme with presenters interviewing their minibeast and pond dipping experts. These experts told us what they had caught such as a dragon fly nymph and newt. They also told us about how they had built dens and gone on a long walk up to Ilkley Moor. They then started to sing a song that they learnt at Nell Bank by Jack and John who were their teachers. It sounds like they had a wonderful time and it was a very interesting assembly.

Year 4 residential trip to Nell Bank

On the 19th of March 2018, Year 4 came to school in non-uniform with suitcases and luggage since they were going on a 2 night residential to Nell Bank. When we arrived at Nell Bank we met our Nell Bank leaders called Jack and John who started us on our first activity which was mini beast hunting.Next we had the chance to explore Nell Bank by taking part in the Nell Bank Habitat Trail.

Once we’d finished, we went to  Middleton to have our lunch before having the chance to go to the adventure and the water playground. We played a while until it was time for tea which tonight was sausage and mash with veg or jacket potato. Once we’d finished tea, teachers sorted us into our dormitories (the girls rooms were named Asquith and Hawksworth. The boys rooms were called Denton and  Rombalds). We headed over to our rooms and sorted our beds and got our pyjamas ready for bed. Soon after that, we headed back down to Middleton for a quiz,hot chocolate,a biscuit and Mr Lowe read Harry Potter before we headed to bed.

The next morning, we all woke up ready for our long 7 mile walk. We went to Middleton to eat chocolate spread,jam or butter toast and cornflakes or rice krispies. We then packed a rucksack and set off on the long walk which took all day. When we returned in the evening we had time for a quick play on the adventure playground before our tea which we wolfed down. After tea, since it was still light, we played out again before showering and getting ready for bed.

Once we were all ready for bed we chilled out with some colouring before singing happy birthday to Jess, Ava and Mrs Javed. We drank our hot chocolate and ate cake before wearily traipsing to our long awaited beds.

Waking up on our last day, we had a lot to do before starting our activities. We stripped our rooms and packed our bags before readying ourselves for the fun of pond dipping and den building. After lots of fun and teamworking, which led to some marvellous dens, it was time to come home and see our school mates and families.

We were tired but happy having had a fantastic time and would definitely go again!
We can’t wait for our Year 5 residential now!

3H Class Assembly

Today,  Year 3 had  their  class assembly  that was all about a book that they have been reading and learning about in class. This book is called Little Babaji and they had been looking at it as part of world book week. The story is about a boy from India whose mum is called Mamaji and dad is called  Papaji. He lives with his dad and his mum.  One day his mum sewed him a dark, fiery red coat,  a light  green tropical green umbrella, purple shoes and bright sky looking blue trousers which his mum sold at a  shop called Bazar.

One day, he went to the forest wearing these clothes and saw a tiger approaching  him.  Suddenly,  the  tiger shouted out  “I am the greatest of them all.” So that he could leave safely,  Little Babayi  gave him his coat then the tiger raced into the misty forest and continued walking but encountered 3 more tigers who robed him of the rest of his new clothes. After telling their story, they sang Little Light of Mine and did two dances which were very well thought out.
