Day 1 at Nell Bank

Year 4 have had a great first day at Nell Bank. On arrival, they had lunch before heading into the woods to play some games and explore the habitats on show. The children then took part in pond dipping and mini beat hunting which they all enjoyed greatly. After that, they went orienteering and explored the adventure play before settling down for a delicious tea of sausages, veg and mash.

This evening, they relaxed with a film, completed quizzes and enjoyed a story accompanied by a hot chocolate.

Everyone’s had a great day and are now sleeping ahead of the long walk tomorrow. We can’t wait!

Food bank

In the past few weeks, we have had something called the food bank which is where we collect certain types of food for people who need it most. The foods that we were allowed to bring were things like pasta, tea bags, soup, cereal and canned foods. We have estimated about over one hundred full bags have been brought in so far. This was our last week collecting so we can not wait until we find out how many pieces of food we have donated to the people who need it most.

Collin and Natalie’s Assembly

Colin and Natalie came to visit on Tuesday and deliver another of their great assemblies.

They began the assembly talking about pizza and the process of ordering pizza from takeaway. Colin talked about what comes first when making a pizza, which was dough, then tomato sauce. After that, they said it was the cheese, then toppings. We disused the different toppings and we agreed on mushrooms and tomato.

Later on, they informed us of how many miles away where the ingredients home places were. We totalled the miles up, and came to the conclusion that overall, the pizza had traveled about 56,100 miles to get to us.

The lesson of this assembly was to be grateful that food can travel that far, just to get to our door. We couldn’t believe how far our food travels and are very lucky that we have such an amazing choice.

Mr Frowd assembly

On Wednesday, most of the school went into the hall to listen to Mr Frowd play his guitar, sing many interesting songs and let us take part. After, a few songs he told us about his time at school, him having to move to a different one at 7 and two boys being his friends. The songs that he sang were very fun and also there were many actions involved that we joined in with. Whenever he played his guitar, he always plays a nice tune. We were upset that we only got half an hour to listen to his amazing songs and we were sad he had to go. We cannot wait for the next one!

Drumming assembly

On Thursday afternoon Nathan , Alice and the children performed an incredible drumming assembly. The children involved had worked with Nathan since the end of last year developing their drumming skills.

First, Riley and Dempsey performed an excellent duet. Nathan showed them a beat , Riley and Dempsey had to copy it. It was amazing! Alice explained how she had taught them the different type of drums used on the full set. She also took part and tried to distract the children to show how well focused they were.

After the boys, it was Amber and lily’s turn. They did it to the song Boomerang. Even though they were really young, they were really good. After that, other chilren took to the stage no matter what year they were in, they were still fantastic to watch.

We all loved the assembly too much and were all disappointed that we had to go back to class.

Today, 5L performed an amazing assembly about their residential trip to Ingleborough Hall.

First it started off with the children talking about how it was and how they perservered with the tough challenges.

Then it was about the amazing show cave that we had to go through. The Children described how fun it was and what it was like.They talked about the funny creations like the elephant and the underwater city.

Next , was tree climbing. The children explained about how challenging it was and how they were working together as a team to pull the ropes!

After that, it was caving. The children talked about how exciting it was although the water was a lot deeper this year. In the cave, there were lots of challenges like the worm hole and sandwich.

Then, they talked about the long walk which was very funny. During the walk they stopped in a park in Austwick to eat lunch and have fun on the slides.

Next was gorge scrambling and Kobe talked about how it was a cross between tree climbing and caving. It was really fun yet challenging.

On the nights, the children watched a DVD, went bat hunting, had a story teller and did country dancing.

After explaining it all, the amazing assembly ended with a big round of applause.

Times Table Rock Stars

Hi,

We’d like to tell you a bit about TT Rockstars which you can play at home or in our after school club. You should play times table rock stars because you can verse your friends, dress up in your style and be a footballer. It is a super fun way to learn times tables for 1×1 to 12×12. It is really fun and you can easily learn your times tables. If you go on garage and you get five questions right you will earn fifty coins {1 question =10 coins but only on garage!} If you go on a game called arena your points won’t be timed by ten although you will still get some points.

It is a great way to practise your times tables and have fun with your friends!
