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?

Digital Leaders

 

Digital Leaders Celebration Event 2017

Today, the Year 5 digital leaders went to the innovation centre, in Bradford, for a celebration event. They shared a presentation about their achievements in school over the year, which can be seen below. They then received a wristband and certificate to say they had successfully completed the training to be a digital leader.

The children also had the opportunity to speak to some visitors about some new technology and games and review them. They received a free mug for this too.

Well done to all the children involved. You have acted as role models to the rest of the school and your confidence has grown immensely. I am very proud of your maturity throughout the training but especially today.

A very proud Miss Charles 🙂

 

Year 5 Fire Safety Talk 26.6.2017

Today the fire service visited Year 5 and talked about fire safety. They explained what fires need to ignite and how to safely evacuate a building – especially their home. In addition, they talked about car safety and the importance of seatbelts.

The children also had the opportunity to ask some questions.

 

What new facts did you learn Year 5?

Year 5 Music Workshop Day 2

Here are the photographs of the second day of the music workshop.

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!

Manchester attack prayers and thoughts

This morning, in class prayers, Year 5 were talking about the tragic events in Manchester and how we can deal with these kinds of rare but awful events.

We watched the advice video on BBC Newsround  and then wrote some really thoughtful prayers. Here is the website if anyone would like some advice. http://www.bbc.co.uk/newsround/13865002

Here are our prayers and thoughts.

Everyone at St.Paul’s CE Primary sends all their prayers and love to anyone affected by the events in Manchester this week.

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!
