Year 6 African Drumming

On Wednesday 21st March, a man called Paul Butler came into school and taught our class to play the African drums.
We learnt lots of different tunes and rhymes and some people took part in solo performances.
After we learnt how to play, Year 5 came to watch and even learnt a song to sing in the middle,

Year 4 Science

Year 4 have enjoyed learning about electricity this half term and particularly building their own circuits.

After mastering how to make simple series and parallel circuits, they had to investigate what kind of materials were conductors or insulators.

Well done everybody! We hope you also enjoy our next topic which is called Animals including Humans and concentrates on the digestive system, food groups and teeth.

St Paul’s Easter Service

We had a wonderful Easter service in church today.

We are particularly proud of the children who read the Easter story and the prayers. They did a fabulous job!

Well done to all the classes for making the wonderful things that were given to Thierry throughout the service and for singing their little hearts out. It was amazing!

Thank you to all the parents, carers, family and friends who attended. We hope you enjoyed it too and look forward to seeing you again soon.

Orienteering!

Four children from year five visited Tong Leadership Academy yesterday to take part in an orienteering race. Working in pairs, they had to navigate their way to a specific point on a map and then return to the start to pass the baton on to the other pair. The children were competing against 11 other schools, who were mainly made up of year six children, from Bradford and Leeds. At the end of the competition, the top four teams would progress to a final round at Leeds Beckett Park. Unfortunately, the team just missed out on the top four but did extremely well to finish fifth!

Making Matzoh in Year 4

Today Year 4 made some Matzoh bread in RE as they were learning about the Jewish festival called Passover or Pesach. This festival commemorates the Exodus (Moses leading the Jewish people out of Egypt).
The ingredients needed to make this flat, unleavened bread are olive oil, flour, water and salt.
The children enjoyed making and eating this bread with Mrs Rashid.
Well done to everyone involved.

Science!

In year five, we have been learning about how plants reproduce. Today, we took cuttings from fuchsias and planted them in new soil. We are hoping to watch them develop their roots and grow into new plants over the next few weeks.
