First Day in Year 1!

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 Day 2

Thank you to all the parents who came and enjoyed the performance. For those parents who could not attend, here are some sections of the show for you to watch.

Finally, we would like to say a HUGE thank you to Miss Boswell and Mr Nash at BBEC for running the workshop but also surprising us with the gift of keeping all the instruments 🙂

We are so grateful and we now have a range of instruments in our school such as bomwhackers, tambourines, 5 ukuleles, maracas and many more!

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 Cartwright Hall and Lister Park

Today Year 5 went on a trip to Cartwright Hall and Lister Park, in Bradford. In the morning we had a workshop where we learnt about noticing things around us, sketching and printing. The children looked at the exhibitions and sketched different parts of artwork of their choice.  Their artwork was super and they tried so hard to create original prints.

After, we had a picnic outside in the sunshine. We then went for a walk around the lake and a play in the park.

Well done Year 5, you were very good at art and extremely well behaved and polite.

Well done!

Year 5 Maths

This week in maths we have been learning how to find the perimeter of a shape using different units of measure. Today we found out the perimeter of the Wembley pitch by doubling each side and adding together the result. We found out that it is 348m.

We then investigated other real-life perimeters in the classroom.
