Year 2 Bridlington 2017

Year 5 Brazil Carnival Day 2017

Yesterday the children in Year 5 took part in a Brazil day and found out all about Brazilian carnivals. They made a flag and a mask and then tried some different fruits in the afternoon. They all made their own tropical punch from orange, pineapple and apple juice.

The sun came out too just like in Brazil 🙂

 

Here are some photos of our day.

 

What did you learn about carnivals Year 5?

Year 5 Music Workshop 21/6/17

Here are some photographs and videos of the children enjoying the music workshop today with Miss Boswell and Mr Nash from BBEC. The children learnt two songs, how to play different instruments, make sounds with their bodies and also some information about soul music.

 

Year 2’s trip to Nell Bank

On Thursday 25th May 2017 Year 2 set off on an adventure to Nell Bank in Ilkley. The aim of their visit was to learn about Animal Habitats and how animals use their senses.  

Once we got there we split into groups. We all had a turn at the following activities:

The Badger Sniff (a smelling trail), the Mole Walk (a blindfold trail), The Mouse Maze (being a mouse(prey) avoiding the owl (predator), The Rabbit Run (to see which animal can get down a hole), Pond dipping, Minibeasting and finally Water play.

When we were minibeast hunting we had to sort and classify the creatures into animals with no legs, animals with 2 legs, 4 legs, 6 legs, 8 legs and too many legs to count. Once we had observed the creatures, we had to let them go carefully back into the wild.

Whilst we were pond dipping we found lots of different creatures who live in and around ponds. Some even changed their habitat from the pond to the land and air.

We found a wide variety of creatures in and around the pond. There were water boatman, water spiders, water snails, newts, dragonfly nymphs, mayfly nymphs, tadpoles, froglets, mayflies and dragonflies.

 

Finally, it was time to explore and have fun in the water play area. We really enjoyed ourselves here as it had been a very hot and busy day.

 

After being such intrepid explorers and mini scientists we were all ready for a sit-down and the ride back to school.

We had worked hard and played hard!!

We all had a super, sunny, sensational day out!!

Year 5 Music Production BBEC Final Session

On Friday, Year 5 had their final session at BBEC with Mr Theakston. They created a new soundtrack for Flintstones and included sound effects too. They were really good and some were really funny too.

Thank you to BBEC and Mr Theakston for allowing us to have these sessions. The children have really enjoyed it and have gained lots of skills too.

The Bamboo Music Man visits Y2

Earlier on in the term Year 2 had a couple of visits from The Bamboo Music Man.

This helped to develop their listening skills and sense of rhythm and pattern.

It was also great fun and very noisy!

Year 2 had an African Art Day

Hello again,

Year 2 had an African Art day which was made up of :

1 Drawing and painting a cartoon style lion.

2 Drawing an elephant using lead and charcoal.

3 Modelling an African Elephant.

Here are some pictures of the children learning, concentrating and creating some very impressive art work. The artist who visited also complimented the children on their attention to their art work and their beautiful behaviour. A good day was had by all involved.

Well done to you Year 2 – you’re amazing!

Chicks visit Year 5

Thank you to Mrs Derbyshire and Reception class for lending us the chicks this morning. They were super cute!

Year 5 End of term and Cooking

Today Year 5 had a treat day. They suggested activities they would like to do and they earned the time today, off timetable, to do activities such as computers, colouring, puzzles and crafts.

All the children also took part in some cooking and baking also. They made crustless quiche and jam pastry whirls. They were delicious and the quiches were very healthy too. The children were chefs in the making with brilliant knife skills even with the sharp knife and their mixing was great too.

Gordon Ramsey Juniors!

Who is going to make them at home?

Have a good half term Year 5!
