# Year 6 Maths Video – How to…

In Year 6 we have been making ‘How to’ videos to show other children how to work out maths problems. We have learnt that teaching someone else do something is a good way to remember methods and the videos can help others too.

There is also a video of out-takes which is quite funny too.

Hope you like them.

# Fun in Year Four!

Here are some photos of Year 4 working hard and having fun at the same time!

They did a couple of experiments in Science to find out if the bubbles in fizzy drinks are weightless or not, and to work out how long it takes for chocolate to melt at different temperatures. They then made their own lollies since it would have been a shame to waste all that lovely chocolate!

They designed a chocolate bar label and wrapper in Art/DT lessons.

In English they worked in groups to write and perform a TV advertĀ to sell a fizzy drink , a chocolate bar or a packet of crisps.

No need to say we have been feeling very hungry all week!!

Well done, Year 4!

# Florence Nightingale visits Year 2

Year 2 haveĀ been finding out about significant people from the past. As part of their research, they have been looking at Florence Nightingale. Luckily, she was able to visit us in school and share her achievements and what life was really like during her lifetime.

Ā

Florence brought in someĀ items forĀ us to touch and see. There was also some smellsĀ so that we could really imagine what it was like at the hospital in Scutari.

We also did someĀ drama. The children could choose whether to be porters or nurses.

• Travel to Scutari on a boat for 2 weeks
• Clean the hospital at Scutari
• Remove all dirty bandages and bedding
• Use cleanĀ clothes and clean sheets
• Get rid of all the rats
• Make sure that any injured soldiers had clean bandages
• Give the soldiers healthy food to eat
• Empty bed pans!!!

Florence Nightingale was significant because she changed how people were looked after when they were ill. Her changes to nursing are still used today. She was known as the “Lady of the Lamp” because at night timeĀ she would go and check on the soldiers with a small lamp in her hand.

Year 2 really enjoyed their visit from Florence Nightingale.

# Harvest Festival

This morning we celebrated Harvest Festival in church and what a wonderful service it was!!

A big THANK YOU goes to all the children and staff involved but also to all the parents, carers, relatives and friends who attended the service and to all the people who contributed to amazing donations brought in for Bradford Food Bank.

Each class sang wonderfully well, the readers had lovely clear voices and the members of the choir sang their little hearts out!

Here are a few pictures of this memorable service.

Thank you, everyone!

# Year 6 Whitby Trip 6.10.2017

Last Friday, Year 6 went to Whitby as part of their topic and English work.

We had an amazing day, the sun shone all day, we paddled in the sea, had an ice-cream, looked in the shops and went up and down the 199 steps.

The children were a credit to the school and we had a lovely day spotting the sights in Whitby and the book Room 13.

Here are some photos and aĀ video of our day.

Well done Year 6!
