We wrote in Mandarin,watched a dragon dance, made vegetable spring rolls and tried different foods.

School Council Meeting

Two pupils from year five attended the School Council meeting this morning with Mr Daynes, then came back to tell their class about the meeting. They explained that the council were trying to think of ideas to raise some funds for our school and asked the children if they had any suggestions. If you have any ideas, feel free to comment below.

Maths open morning – Year 3

Yesterday we had a great time practicing our 8 times tables and showing our parents/guardians how we learn.

We played snap, naughts and crosses, multiplication word searches and also our favourite  times table rock-stars.

We loved learning a new times table and by the end of our lesson we nearly new all our 8 times tables!! Go us!!

Year 3 Art Day

On Monday we had a very special Art day. We invited Tony Bullock in to help us with some Chinese art.

We painted a pig to link with Chinese New Year.

We drew a wax dragon and used paint over the top, this is called wax resist art work.

We also painted a panda using different brush strokes.

Trip to York Chocolate Story- Year 4

Last Wednesday, Year 4 had an amazing day in York.

They had a guided tour of York Chocolate Story to learn all about the history of chocolate and the importance of York and its chocolate factories. They tasted lots of different kinds of chocolate and had a Science workshop in the Methodist Church hall where they learnt about the process of melting and cooling and made their own chocolate wallpaper.

The children were a credit to our school as they all behaved impeccably all day!

Well done, Year 4!

Christmas Fair

Thank you to everyone who attended our Chrirsmas fair yesterday. It was a lovely evening and a great turnout. It was lovely to see lots of parents, families and children enjoying the stalls and games.

We hope everyone enjoyed it.

Carols with the Choir

The children in the choir did us proud today as they put on a fantastic show for the members of St Paul’s Church. They sang their hearts out and entertained every one with their amazing choreography and Christmas jokes.

It was also very nice to see them mingle with our guests and serve them drinks or mince pies.

They are all super stars and so are their “managers” (Mr Collier and Mrs Barraclough)!

We would like to say a HUGE well done to those children in year 3 who took part in doing extra homework. The quality of work is fantastic and Mrs Barraclough and I are very proud.

We received some great models, power points and posters of our Local Area.

We look forward to sharing some of them with you in our class assembly on:

Year 3 – Our trip to the Mandir

Yesterday we went on a trip to visit the Mandir (Hindu Temple)

In our RE lessons we have been learning about Hindu Festivals so we decided to go and see what else we could find out.

We really enjoyed our workshop and now we can’t wait to learn all about Bramha.
